Where the Sun will Rise Tomorrow by Rashi Rohatgi




1905 and Indians are chafing under the British yoke of colonialism. Even in Chandrapur in Bengal, (always a hotbed of revolutionaries) change is coming. There is a strong awakening not just in politics but in empowerment of women and Leela and Maya who are fortunate in having a rather benevolent father are in the forefront of education for women.


The story plays out for both these women wanting and yearning for love and marriage - one within the boundaries of caste and religion and one distinctly outside. It is not an easy time and the story shows the differences even within one country - where religion and caste can cause so much differences even whilst they try to unite for a common goal.


For readers who like history and a story woven into actual history, this is a wonderful read.


The biography of this writer alone deserves another story as it is fascinating.

I don't know much about British colonialism in India so the historical aspect of this book interests me. I hope you continue to be well.
