really liked it
bookshelves: very-good
Recommended for: People who have time

A Fine Balance taught me what the State of Emergency in India was really all about, naturally Democracy came to a standstill, the Prime Minister was the Supremo and Civil Liberties took a beating.We know stories of student leaders whose bodies were tortured beyond recognition, harsh methods of birth control. That one person could ‘achieve’ so much is appalling. To me this book has a valuable lesson, do not take your freedom for granted and do not abuse it. It does not take time for things and scenarios to change.
Z’s reviw captures the book so very, very beautifully. Read it !
