Book Review | Lajja

What begins as a slow paced story spirals into a heartbraking account once the violence hits the protagonist and his family. You want to cling to that hope that, no matter what the family has gone through, Maya will return and “everything will be all right.

Lajja is a honest book and tells a heart-wrenching story of a family beaten up, but unwilling to give up.
