Book review of – Ek Musafir esa bhi

Ek Musafir esa bhi is a biography of Balasaheb Thackeray by Dr. Reena Sinha ‘Anamika’. This book is all about his works, achievements, life – events and how he devoted all of his life in the formation and Shiv Sena. He was a great politician who formed the Shiv Sena, a Hindu right-wing party in Maharashtra and worked really hard for it. This book describes his whole life as a writer and a politician.

Author has tried to narrate the whole chain of events which has affected and shaped the life of Balasaheb Thakrey.
Balasaheb Thakrey was a man with good potential and power. After several years of the division of India and Pakistan he was worried about the condition of Hindu religion people and for that, he formed the political party, Shiv Sena. He has to face many problems in his journey, he was even held responsible for the riots against Muslim but he never felt disappointed. He continued working harder until they won elections. Even after the death of his wife and his elder son. He continued working for the society.

Author has narrated his whole life in a very beautiful manner. Many people can take inspiration from the life of Balasaheb. Author has done a commendable job while writing this novel. She has written some poems in Hindi too which were really appreciable.

The cover of the book was appropriate. The one thing which I don’t like was the use of a language other than Hindi. I think it was marathi and I don’t know that language so it was really difficult for me to skip those paragraphs.

This book is really good for those Hindi readers who are looking for an inspiring story.
