Description

About the Book

 

Set in a fictional society in Ahmadabad formed after the communal riots of 2002, Shalom India housing society weaves together the lives of its residents through a series of stories that capture the dilemmas of the last bene Israel Jews in India. How are their relations with other communities changing? Ought they to leave? Where can they go? Do they belong in India, or in Israel? Will they feel at home in Israel?

 

Drawing readers into the world of a microscopic community, the novel traces misunderstandings between parents and children, lovers and neighbours, in stories that are by turns hilarious, bitter-sweet and heartwarming. The spirit of the affectionate, sometimes eccentric, Prophet Elijah to whom the characters turn in their trouble suffuses the novel. Esther David probes the shifting layers of religious and national identity-from the way people dream of homelands imagined or left behind- in prose that is understand but always engaging.

I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
