#Epub À Inside the Haveli ⚛ eBook or E-pub free

Rather flat in emotion so I just could not proceed The author had so much potential to make this book an interesting one but failed Although its quite an insightful into the lives of women of Rajasthan but it failed to catch my attention Took me awhile to finish it and it didn t have an ending as such Readers can read it if they are curious about the ways of living of traditional women but don t expect something great. #Epub Ì Inside the Haveli ⛎ Inside the Haveli This Indian novel takes the reader behind the scenes of an ongoing deeply rooted tradition and into a way of life that for outsiders has long been veiled with mystery This exotic little book gives you a lot to think about the lives of the women of the Haveli, their customs, their willing discrimination towards themselves and others and the strong rejection of the changing ideas of the outside world The language is very Indian, with many colloquializations this word check tells me that s not a word isn t it and a few words out of the regional language to add flavour That being said, the style is fluid and the descriptions are vivid and apt Also, it co This exotic little book gives you a lot to think about the lives of the women of the Haveli, their customs, their willing discrimination towards themselves and others and the strong rejection of the changing ideas of the outside world The language is very Indian, with many colloquializations this word check tells me that s not a word isn t it and a few words out of the regional language to add flavour That being said, the style is fluid and the descriptions are vivid and apt Also, it could have been turned into a complete drama fest, instead it is just very charmingly subtle Great book really enjoyed thesubtle approach to exploring life in India Sometimes such books can be very tragic and dramatic nearly all the way through, but this one paced itself delicately and I let it s humans be simply human Lovely read. One of the worst book ever written in women s writing in India.Misguided feminism.Deeply right wing Conservative She takes slavery and caste hegemony to a whole new level I started reading the book in Jan 13 and stopped mid way I wish I left it at that completed it and utterly disgusted. This is an amazing book with a background set up in the haveli of Udaipur I read Hindi translation and needless to say I could connect to the writer At some places I felt like losing the interest but it is perfect to understand the impact of culture and heritage in the Indian society and how it is being passed on. I came across this book purely by chance and I m glad that I did The simplicity of the prose draws you instantly The descriptions aren t ornate or complicated but perfectly paint the picture of the Rajasthani aristocratic life of haveli More than anything else, the book spoke to me about female solidarity, the tenacity of human bonds and a precarious line between tradition and modernity. Udaipur That s the first word of the book and the reason for me getting hooked to it right away Set in the princely family of Mewar s current times, this is the story of a modern educated girl from Mumbai, Geeta, getting married to the prince of the Haveli She has to face lots of challenges getting accustomed to the lifestyle and traditional approach of the family.The prince, Ajay, is also well educated and is a lecturer in the Udaipur university.While Geeta wants them to move away from Udai Udaipur That s the first word of the book and the reason for me getting hooked to it right away Set in the princely family of Mewar s current times, this is the story of a modern educated girl from Mumbai, Geeta, getting married to the prince of the Haveli She has to face lots of challenges getting accustomed to the lifestyle and traditional approach of the family.The prince, Ajay, is also well educated and is a lecturer in the Udaipur university.While Geeta wants them to move away from Udaipur and have an independent life without much family intervention, Ajay s heart stays with Udaipur living with his parents in their ancestral Haveli him being the only son to the ageing King.The book is divided into three parts, taking 5 years leaps in between, beginning from the birth of Ajay and Geeta s daughter, to her upbringing in the haveli along with the servant s kids of the same age, to attaining marriageable age.From purdah system, to child labor and child marriage, the book touches on many sensitive nerves of the society Geeta and her strong character is the pivot for this interesting story.Rounding up to 4 stars, because I m slightly biased I think I found this on the swap shelf of our school, but I m not entirely sure This is a very well written recounting of life in the haveli women in purdah, in India Unfortunately I m not sure my copy is not missing some pages I always feel suspicious when the book ends at the bottom of the last page without any extra pages between it and the cover.This happened once before with a different book and someone kindly photocopied and sent me the pages That book was farpopular than this I think I found this on the swap shelf of our school, but I m not entirely sure This is a very well written recounting of life in the haveli women in purdah, in India Unfortunately I m not sure my copy is not missing some pages I always feel suspicious when the book ends at the bottom of the last page without any extra pages between it and the cover.This happened once before with a different book and someone kindly photocopied and sent me the pages That book was farpopular than this, I suspect so I m not sure anyone would have a copy of this available Good read even with the inconclusive ending
