Book title : The Assassinations

Genre : Fiction ---- Published by :Speaking Tiger

Author : Dr.Vikram Kapur

About the Book : Prem Kohli, the handsome, ambitious son of a Sikh refugee, has the world at his feet. A glittering career lies ahead, and he has just got engaged to his college girlfriend, Deepa, overcoming her parents’ reservations about Hindus and Sikhs intermarrying. But, while Deepa remains occupied with their marriage plans, the Indian Army enters the Golden Temple. Prem cannot contain his rising anger at the desecration of the shrine and at the people around him who shrug it off as ‘teaching a lesson’ to the Sikhs. He begins growing out his hair and beard, and visiting the gurudwara regularly, where he learns about the militancy in Punjab. Matters come to a head a few months later, when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi is assassinated and anti-Sikh riots break out all over Delhi, as Prem is caught up in a vortex of violence and hate that threatens to engulf all of their lives. In The Assassinations, Vikram Kapur writes with sensitivity about a topic that still holds painful memories, skilfully telling the story of how ordinary lives are distorted by the forces of history. At the same time, he masterfully evokes the New Delhi of the 1980s, with its wide, leafy roads masking the precariousness of its Punjabi middle class. This memorable book captures the turbulence of those times, while chronicling the ways in which continuing to live means coming to terms with many kinds of deaths."
‘The Assassinations, even though it is a fictional account, deftly recreates one of the most tragic episodes in the history of the nation.’ – The Telegraph

Reviews:

- The best part of the book is, the transformation of the characters. Prem has been living the normal life with the glittering career ahead, who only thinks about his family and happiness has now turned into a man who is raging for the avenge. Deepa from the easy going girl is now defenseless, not knowing how to deal with the Prem's abrupt behavior. Rakesh and Seema are dealing with their own trauma. Savitri is now doubting her decision, blaming herself for all the events that happened.
The author has focused on every single character in the book and treated them equally. The simple language with the fluid narration has helped in structuring the book with great ease. And I feel he does the justice to the reader by ending it the way it has been.
Overall, this book portrayed both Joy and Pain equally. It also gives an insight about the history. And I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. This 200 and odd page will surely Makes its own impact, satisfying the readers' time. I give it 4.3 out of 5 for this excellent book.
-I absolutely loved the strategic sectioning of the story. The characters were played well until their parts get over. If I write more I would be revealing important bits of the story. But I would like to discuss this book further with those who have read it. It a short book but each sentence makes you think. The story ends with third part where the author talks about the life of the future generation that is often reminded of the link they shared with those dark times.
