Finally a refreshing book to read. If you are looking for a charming and funny book with a full dash of Indian culture then pick up ‘The Windfall’ by Diksha Basu.
The idea is simple. What happens when you come into a lot of money? Do things stay the same or do you ditch the old for the new? In the case of the Jha family its the story of them moving on up to a new neighborhood. A true “keeping up with the Jones” Indian style which I love.
I have fortunately had the opportunity to travel to India so I can picture it well.
But in the end the meals, the family drama could happen to anyone, anywhere in the world. Pick up this book. You learn about a culture you might not know a lot about and discover a great new author and book in the process.
“I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”
