Book Review of The Dove's Lament by KIRTHI JAYAKUMAR

The Dove's Lament
Kirthi Jayakumar

The Blurb
The Dove's Lament is a journey that takes you around the world, bringing to life the human side of conflicts that tear people apart. From the genocide in Rwanda, to war-stricken Bosnia, from child marriages in India to prostitution and drug trafficking in Colombia, these stories traverse a microcosm of reality. Be it the manifestation of Bacha Baazi in Afghanistan, or the fight for paradise on Earth, Kashmir, the repertoire of stories lend a soul to what otherwise remain a muddle of news reports and statistics. Through these stories, Kirthi embroiders a tapestry of the unvanquished human spirit in varied shades, and shakes you up to the reality that surrounds you.

                                                                         Book Review :

 The Dove's Lament is powerful book and acts as eye opener . The book reflects the other qualities  of human being like hope , wanting to survive and fear of losing love ones  other than  violence , hatred and etc.. other  negative qualities .Each Story has a powerful impact on us that makes us feel 'How Safe and Luck we are ?. 'The Dove 's Lament book  is  not  a  recommended read to all the week hearted  and sensitive people who can get nightmares and  will start crying  after reading it but to those tough people  with a golden heart .
A well narrated book .I received this book as part of blog tours conducted by TBC .Thank you Kirthi and Rubina for the same .
