A beautiful and brilliant portrait of two generations of women Set in India’s railway colonies this is the story of Kamini and her mother Saroja nicknamed Tamarind Mem I really enjoyed the narrative thread of this novel I liked reading from the daughter s perspective Kamini and then from the mother s Saroya It reminded that though you think you know someone and how they feel in reality we only know pieces of that person and their story You have to listen with your heart and to want to know the story in order to really hear it I learned this from this book and I was engaged in the story and the characters throughout None of them were wholly one thing or another they were woven out of a variety of threads by Badami and that made for a satisfying and to me fulfilling story and message I had the feeling at the end of the novel that I really did not want it to end yet The story was relatable and it made me think as did the characters I would definitely recommend it especially for those who enjoy novels set in India

    I picked up this book because I wanted a rich way of exploring parent child relationships in a South Asian context It’s well written I guess and not without some worthwhile reflections But you have to dig very very deep past a lot of ugliness in traditional Indian culture to find them And I couldn’t be arsed to do soSo to me the book is needlessly depressing and contains no positive messages It’s along the lines of “Hey li

    There doesn't always need a lot to be happening in a book to enjoy it This was the case with Tamarind Woman The language spoke for itself and I could smell the spices as I read A book of two halves from different points of viewI would have loved an Indian dictionary by the side of me to translate words Could have looked at internet on my phone but I don't like technology as I'm immersed in a book What a strange one I am 😜

    I am obsessed with Indian authors The book was interesting maybe not an unputdownable oneI couldn't find any other word that conveys the feeling but worth giving a shot It is a cliched plot but that shouldn't stop you from picking it up and reading till the end There wasn't an element of surprise or novelty only familiarity That made it easier to read Like comfort food or clothing Indian women always have an air of myst
