Gita Mehta writes beautifully in A River Sutra.
Gita Mehta writes beautifully in A River Sutra. That makes this book a very pleasant read, but it is not the kind of literary fiction that it is dressed up to be. There are short plots wrapped up in a couple of chapters, one chapter to introduce the character and one chapter to explain why he/she is in Narmada. Apart from a sophisticated style and diction, frail characterisation and exciting plots make this book more of a popular read.

Gita Mehta’s A River Sutra is a very good novel for the summer days that stretch like toffee, for evenings on a balcony of a mountain cabin or afternoons on a hammock in an apple orchard. I read it in my parents’ garden in Berlin, listening to squirrels throwing walnuts and acorns and woodpeckers making characteristic noises high up in the Scots pines.
An elderly bureaucrat escapes the world to run a guest house on the banks of India's holiest river, the Narmada, only to find he has made the wrong choice. Too many lives converge here. Among those who disturb his tranquility are a privileged young executive bewitched by a mysterious lover; a novice Jain monk who has abandoned opulence for poverty; a heartbroken woman with a golden voice; an ascetic and the child he has saved fromprostitution. Through their stories A River Sutra explores the fragile longings of the human heart and the sacred power of the river.
Or perhaps it is ending here ate them
Or perhaps it is ending here ate them. First I should describe the world I inhabited before I came here. I was a young executive in Calcutta's oldest tea company. Like myself, all my young colleagues had been educated at exclusive boarding schools and obtained their jobs through family connections.
A River Sutra is a collection of stories written by Gita Mehta and published in 1993. The book's stories are interconnected by both a geographical reference (the Narmada River and the Narmada River Valley), and by the theme of diversity within Indian society, both present and past. Unlike some of Mehta's previous stories, the ones in A River Sutra feature only Indian characters.
With imaginative lushness and narrative elan, Mehta provides a novel that combines Indian storytelling with thoroughly modern perceptions into the nature of love-love both carnal and sublime, treacherous and redeeming.
