The next book review is here fellas!
The book I am here to review today is My Blind Father by Anuj.
This story will take you into the depths of child psychology to understand the child, to help the child, to provide them an environment where they can grow to their best potential.
From the beginning of civilization, we are growing by ignoring child. Because it is very easy to ignore a child, you can tell them to shut up. You can force them yo sit silently, so we forget how to understand a child.
Your world is perfectly well without understanding a child. But now you can see the results. Ignoring a child, disrespecting the freedom of a child is producing criminals in the society.
Now we need to understand a child to make our society crime less. This book is to help everyone to understand the child. To make our civilization more civilized.
The story is quite intriguing. It delves on the relationship between the protagonist and his father. The kind of freedom and liberties the father gives his son and limits the control on his child is indeed a positive element of the book.
The story also focuses on the need to remodel our education system. This strain in the storyline did lead to me think how our education system and the societal pressure force the parents to ensure that their child is doing something ‘productive’ and success is measured by money, not inner growth or development.
Yet the story also makes me ponder that if parents don’t keep a certain limit of control then children do fall into the wrong tracks. Though it can be argued that once fallen the child learns to stand up again, I wonder how many children really are able to collect their courage and stand firm again.
Indeed a book that will make you think over a lot of things. A very unique story. It does get a bit slow in the middle but once you cross over those pages, the story gets it hold back on you!
I’d give the book a 3.5/5. The only issue I had was as with the previous book of Anuj, it just gets quite preaching-kind at places.
That’s it my dear friends. Soon I’ll be back with something, a poem/review/short story…… It has been such a long time since I wrote a short story! 😐😮
Best wishes for all!
