Nayyab Sarwar – September 20, 2019
This book revolves around the rise and fall of communism. If you have no idea of the communist dream and the red handbook on which many pledged their lives – you will not be able to understand the depth of this novel because it is inherently complex in nature (language and content wise)… . The novel traces migrants who came to the Soviet Union (USSR) to free people of the class divide. There are two categories of beneficiaries in its characters – those that were truly passionate and believed that the red doctrine was the answer to equality and economic problems and those that free rode on the funding agencies dumped to promote the red campaign by Lenin. They knew they were good for nothing so they went to Moscow to survive on a stipend given by the govt. . . . What’s important is how these ppl have all settled and become shattered post the berlin wall episode. Most commonly how they married Russian Women and how their children bear no resemblance to their Pakistani heritage. They don’t look like their forefathers. These characters begin to detach and nostalgia takes over them – pakistani roots take ground once again. They crave day in and out to Return to their soil to ask it for forgiveness, reconnect and redefine their purpose. Their definition of ‘home’ beckons them. They dont identify with their families. Purposeless, all of them set across to journey to Pakistan and find eachother … and find out whether their soil will forgive them or not.
