When I finally met Salman Rushdie within seconds we got to talking about this book Like Moshin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist Inheritance tackles radical territory radical than you might think Both novels break from the traditional immigrant novel by having the main character break from the country of adoption and return to the country of origin Sure the act is nothing new but the post 911 instability is This is a lot striking than you might think— the basic concept of the immigrant novel from Amy Tan to Rushdie was co existence a belief in the ultimate greatness of mongrel culture; the character finding some way to come to terms and perhaps even thrive in the country of adoption In Inheritance two generations of immigrant return and both experience the fundamental instability that comes from divorcing where you're from but never fitting in with where you're at

So far this is the Man Booker Prize winner that is most relevant to me as an Asian Most countries in Asia were once colonies of European or American countries and their influences will forever stay no matter how many centuries have passed Also this is one of the most readable Although the verses are oftentimes playful the storytelling is concise Almost all the characters seem to be alive and the imageries that the scenes create seem like imprints that will stay in your mind for a long timeIt may not be as comprehensive as Salman Rusdie’s Midnight’s Children although it is also about India that used to be under the British empire However it is exact with its urgent message the loss of the nation’s true identity due to western influences The true Indian identity that was an amalgam of the nation’s own culture and tradition spawning several centuries when they were still free of foreign influences After all India has one of the oldest civilizations in the world It may not be as tear jerking and bewildering as Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things although it is also about Indian families trying to survive the Third World realities of life However it is realistic with the characters finding themselves in the situations that were not imposed to them but mostly of their own choices I think this is what made me appreciate Desai’s over Roy’s that her characters have choices despite the fact that those options are limited because of the harsh environment that they happened to live in It may not be as current as Aravind Adiga’s The White Tiger although it is also about the changing landscape of a small Indian town However Desai’s storytelling is engaging as she has this rare ability to take you in a roller coaster ride you’ll be in enthralled by her playful verses in deep thoughts by her heartfelt message in gratitude by being in a better state in life than her characters in aversion to any form of racial discrimination by following the sad fate of Biju hopping from one job to another as an illegal alien in the USA and yet in the end you will feel cheering for her characters as you are able to identify yourself with them That no matter what we go through in life there is still hope that awaits us at the end of each tumultuous journeyOne of my GR friends once commented that he has veered away from novels with India as a setting because they are always about being destitute and poor There may be some truth on this However novels are supposed to be about reality and that’s how most of the people live in India I have been to Mumbai thrice In my 27 years in the corporate world I have been fortunate to work under 4 Indian nationals and each of them has been telling me about too much politicking that hinders the development and progress in their country They are all good bosses with good education very smart knowledgeable conscientious culture sensitive and appreciative They and the other Indian people I had a chance to meet make me wonder how come that despite many good people in India they seem to have difficulty in putting their acts together to propel their country to a higher groundThen I thought I might as well be talking about the Filipinos and the Philippines
