beneath the veil
powerful and gripping, 'what the body remembers' offers you the finest portrait of indian women and the dividing india through the eye of two suppressed punjabi women--roop and satya, as they are struggling to survive in the masculine indian world. their sagas are heart-wrenching, tragic and yet noble. as you go through their stories line by line you cannot help feeling and taking in all the pains they have borne. and as nicely summed at the end of the book--no matter how hard women have tried, how many good deeds they have done--'men' have never changed. wonder-full book.Was this review helpful?

A Heart Being Torn Apart on the Name of Religion: How Can the Body Not Remember
Wonderfully written book. A great piece of work. Although written from women's perspective, it is heart shaking even for the men. It takes you back to the era that no one from the region would have ever wanted to witness. The final culmination of the hatred filled in the human mind on the name of the religion by the colonolists and how the local politicians flamed it resulting in bringing out the worst in the humans. The suffering of the innocents tears you apart. The book is extremely well written and will make every young reader from the region think about their own grandparents and what they went through. A great saga of the Sikhs being caught in the middle. The book touches your soul for ever. The mind and the body will remember it for ever.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Real, Wonderful, and Close to Heart
I found this book to be so exact and so real to the life of many women in India durring the partition of East Punjab and West Punjab. My family saw many terrible things durring that time in India. This story is written from a womens view point and the stroy told was the most interesting I've ever read. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a thirst for different culture.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
