Bahir by Monisha K Gumbar


A tale of utter desperation and fierce hope. And a fight for honour. Meet Sawera. A beautiful and Sensual woman. Born in Pakistan, raised in the Middle East and abused wherever she goes. Struggling to find acceptance, which eludes her over and over again, she ends up being an outcast. Who belongs nowhere and to no-one.

Used and manipulated by the men she loved, from the depths of her soul she claims her self-respect, along with the faith to overcome her pitiful circumstances.

Where does she find her strength? What is the breaking point? How does she get over the demons of her past? Follow the story of Sawera, a child born of midnight into the dawn of new hope. Uncover the secrets and conspiracies that make her the woman she is. Read her story, a story of survival.

My views

Protagonist Samera,born in a Muslim conservative family was a fateful child as she brought luck and money to the family.

While she was growing up she faced sexual abuse, got married at an early age of 19 and soon got divorced. She faced domestic violence and finally moved back to her parents.

The story depicts her survival, the way women are treated in the society.

The author has a powerful narration and a very good plot. The way the story is narrated is breathtaking.
