Mithal Mausi Ka Parivar Puran is a compelling family saga written by someone who had buried all her literary aspirations that she had picked up while still an undergraduate. Mithilesh Mukherjee picked up her pen towards the end of her life to write about her illustrious parents, her childhood and the bittersweet memories of her life and career in a series of letters addressed to her niece, Titu, at her behest. This is a powerful anecdotal record that affords a peep into a bygone era. Born to parents dedicated to the education of the girl child, Mithilesh Mukherjee followed in their footsteps, beginning her career as a school teacher. She then switched to the Department of Development and later retired from government service in 1973., HarperCollins, 'This unerring journey through memory and reminiscence . . . is a triumph' ?Indian Express Despite all odds, it is often said, India holds together. Perhaps it does, the authors of this perceptive and provocative study of Indian society concede, but there are bitter truths that this uncertain success barely conceals. For, even after half a century of independence and the institution of democracy, India remains a deeply divided society, a 'fractured land'. While the old inequities of caste and class persist, there are new challenges posed by the advent of extreme religious fundamentalism and an unabashedly consumerist culture. Out of God's Oven is an uncompromising look at the drama of contemporary India, based on the authors' personal memories and first-hand accounts of terrible landmarks in Indian history, such as the communal riots in Gujarat, the strife in Ayodhya, Naxal violence in Bengal, terrorism in Punjab, and caste wars in Bihar. In the midst of so much despair, if there is hope, the authors discover, it lies in the resilience of ordinary people. But how long, they ask, before this too is lost? Recording the voices of several Indians, including the anonymous and the famous, the dispossessed and the privileged, the sane and the fanatical, Dom Moraes and Sarayu Srivatsa have produced a revelatory and sobering book that will be remembered and discussed for a long time to come. 'The travelogue is a time tested, time worn device, a trusty steed for philosophy and rambling prose. It is a tribute to Moraes' control over his material that God's Oven maintains its pace and rhythm without ever losing its focus or direction' ?Indian Express 'Out of God's Oven is that rare book that will be remembered long after other, lesser works have been forgotten' ?Telegraph 'A travel book with a difference . . . beautifully written.
