“Book Review: Twinkle Khanna’s The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad”
A slice of humor with a dash of wisdom
I had a lot of fun with this cute little book. I enjoyed it & ended up reading it in just one day. It’s a collection of four short stories where each of them has a strong undercurrent of feminism. There is no flowery language, the simplicity is what makes it such a wonderful and fast read. This book was a pleasant surprise for me. I was not expecting to like it as much as I did. I laughed, cried, enjoyed to the core. I am excited to share a book review by twinkle Khanna and I have also reviewed other books of her so don’t forget to check that as well.
Beautiful depiction of characters
A gangly young girl transforms her village with a revolutionary idea. Sixty-eight-year-old Noni Appa finds herself drawn to a married man – ‘Why do people have to define relationships, underline each word till the paper gives way beneath,’ she wonders. Bablu Kewat becomes obsessed with sanitary napkins much to his family’s horror, and a young woman keeps checking the weather forecast as she meticulously plans each of her five weddings.
Here’s a rebellious teenager who wants to secure the life of every girl of her village after seeing her elder sister being beaten for dowry; there’s an older woman falling in love with her young yoga teacher. There’s a woman who jumps in and out of marriages and meets prospective grooms of her parents’ choice; there’s the man who breaks the ultimate taboo by engaging with the subject of menstruation and making low-cost sanitary. Each of these characters has been wonderfully etched in the weave of the story they tell.
Here are some inspiring one-liners that you want to re-read and share with others. My personal favorite part is “Women have been looking for a cape and have been handed an apron for centuries. But here was a man who wanted to help women swing their apron around, let it flutter down their backs, and watch them soar through the clear blue skies.” Another one is that brings out the essence of Elisa’s tale is, “She briefly belonged too many, but true to herself.”
Twinkle Khanna is a celebrity Indian author who is witty, funny, observant, and wise, this is storytelling at its most irresistible. She is a funny, smart woman and as a columnist or blogger, she is impressive a complete hoot. She is sarcastic and funny, intelligent, knows what is right for her like she left the film industry because she knew it wasn’t her cup of tea while writing she knows where exactly to use the right word to hit the right chord of readers.
Book review of twinkle Khanna –All in all, I recommend the book is a must-read—for a woman because it gives feminism a whole new meaning, and for a man because it sets the example of a man who is working hard to bring a change in the way women live. We need more men like him. The book is already on the bestseller list and, trust me, it’s a more accurate take on feminism than Chetan Bhagat’s One Indian Girl!
