showing yards of fabric to the women of status families and to the giggling girls who dream of dressing up in silk but can only afford cotton When Ramchand is sent to show his I am really amazed at how good this book was I wasn t expecting anything even close to this The Sari Shop brought forth subtly and effortlessly the class differences rampant in society and how it actually acts out in people s lives The narrative is beautiful and well paced taking its time to lay out the background and then amping up the suspenseRamchand is a 26 year old man working in a sari shop in Amritsar Through his work he comes in contact with a large number of women from the upper class of the city wives and daughters of prominent businessmen professionals academics and so on For years he drones along in a monotonous pace But when he is sent out of the shop to take saris to the Kapoor household for their daughter s wedding he gets a glimpse of how the other 1 percent livesSuitably impressed the luxury of the Kapoor home gives Ramchand the motivation to brush up on his long forgotten English and hope revives that he would be able to do something in life than just sell saris But things don t work out that way since English is not the only thing his brief contact with the Kapoors expose him to Another major character in the book is Kamla who has come from a small town to the north of Amritsar She is married to a colleague of Ramchand and after his visit to the Kapoors he gets inextricably involved in Kamla s life despite not knowing her at allThe story depicts the stark contrast of life in the city where people like the wealthy Kapoors live cheek by jowl with people like Ramchand who pretty much lives in a hovel However while the Kapoors wrestle with their first world problems the conseuences of their struggles are directly felt by the poor section of the society The book also deals with class feminism and its hypocrisy When it comes to feminism many middle and upper class women don t consider poor women a part of the movement While a Kapoor girl is rightly encouraged to make of herself than just a wife and homemaker someone like Kamla is considered utter filth and indecent unworthy of mixing with decent people The characters in this book are so well developed that it felt as if I knew them personally The author takes her time to set the scene and she does it perfectly She adds in such small details of people and places that the whole book was like a film in my mind The Sari Shop is a book that forces you to humanise the people who work for you your drivers cooks maids gardeners and those like Ramchand without whom the great urban commerce would fall flat and all your convenience destroyed It forces you to think about the lives of people irrespective of their class and consider them as persons And what s it does all this through a beautiful story with a well paced narrative and well developed characters This would easily be one of the
