Book Club Meeting
ESL Meeting Room
Thursday, September 25, 2014
Today Bhanu coordinated the Book Club Meeting at ESL Meeting Room. The book the club considered was written by Rohinton Mistry titled “A Fine Balance”. This novel is in Bombay (currently called Mumbai) India during the period of 1975 and 1984, part of the time when India was under Emergency Rule declared by then Prime Minister Mrs Indira Gandhi.
I was invited to be present at the book club meeting since I was a college student from South India during that period. There were some questions about the Emergency Rule in India but most of the questions were about the characters in the novel and its impact on the people living through out the world.
