A riveting read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first few chapters and look forward to reading more!As a second generation Indian born in the UK I could identify some of the emotions and turmoil my parents went through (or must have) bringing up their three children. My sister and I often find ourselves having similar conversations of how we should bring up our children (the third generation) and while there is no right or wrong answer it is interesting to hear the author’s viewpoint and experience. Just a minor suggestion the book focuses on a particular class of NRIs; those who, if living in India, would use English as their first language. This, I feel, should be made explicit.
Thank you for sharing your personal experience Anupama. I agree that the kind of people I write about would use English as their first language even in India but that does not make us less Indian or more Indian, just a different kind of Indian!
