Book Review: Those Days in Delhi by Yashodhara Lal

Humorous and Insightful

This Story is set in Delhi in the Year 1990s.

The author has well written in a simple language and easy read. It keeps the readers engrossed in the book.

Meet Gudia, the protagonist who is a 12-year-old girl and the middle child. She is in Class 7 and has an inquisitive nature.

The book revolves around the instances which mattered the most at her age at home as well as in her school life, the importance of parents attention , the significance of chanting Gayatri Mantra, the issues she has to face while growing up, the incidents which shook her and the challenges she has to face in her life. It brings nostalgia and relatable to our childhood memories in contrast to the current scenario deprived of these pleasures due to the digital world.

When you turn the pages, you will realize Gudia is none other than the author herself. She is sharing her childhood experiences through this book.

Chapter titles give a slight hint on what to expect in it. The author gives us vivid details of the characters which make the readers understand each character’s perspective. Beautiful Narration with author’s observant to even minute details and her sense of humor.

The story will emotionally move the readers.

You can’t run away from your problems. They’ll just follow you until you turn around and face them. You can deal with this.
