The Silent Raga
A NovelBook - 2007
In the literary tradition of Rohinton Mistry, this ambitious debut novel is a moving tale of family, tradition, loss and reconciliation. In confident prose that resembles the rhythms and progression of an Indian raga, Ameen Merchant captures in rich detail the world of two Brahmin women, a world restricted by caste and cultural rules but also teeming with colour, music and food.
