A beautiful, touching, coming of age real life story of love and determination to rise from the India’s lowest caste to having a respectful decent life. PK has been bullied and discriminated in his childhood so much that it left psychological scars on him. His determination to succeed and be free from India’s ingrained rituals and beliefs, led him on a difficult yet rewarding trip across continents to meet his one true love according to the prophecy.
This book is precious and kind, written in a calm and philosophical style at times, sprinkled with bouts of joy and sadness at the same time. I recommend it from the heart, it makes one ponder over the meaning of life and love, what we are most eager to do to change and give direction to ourselves for the better.
