The Girl who got Labelled Book Review
In the early 1960s, ten-year-old Anupama finds herself staring at the rain outside on her first flight, bound for the UK. Her father, who has lovingly brought her up after the death of her British mother, is heartbroken at sending her away.
But life in England with her British grandmother will give Anupama more opportunities than their village outside Bangalore, he believes – especially since, like her mother, Anupama is a Maths prodigy.
With that first trip, Anupama embarks on a journey that will see her heart soar in love, only to come crashing down over and over again.
She will see loss – of a beloved but neglected father, of great love, of her dignity, of her career. Through it, all, numbers and equations, her constant friends, will see her through this tumult and the various things she will be at various times.
Broken but brave, she builds another life for herself back in India, but when a young journalist causes a ripple in her predictable days, Anupama finds herself back on a flight to the UK after forty years, staring at the rain again. Will she find who she’s meant to be this time – will the label stick?.
