Fiction. In Veena Damle's premier novel, I AM OM, one sees a blend of East and West, realism and fairy tale. "The vehicle she has chosen is the Hindu epic, the Mahabharata...As young Manju's grandfather, Azoba, relates the never-ending struggle of Mahabharat, a similar struggle is developing in the Sathe household as Manju's mother years for fame and the attention of a prominent surgeon. Manju's father, aware of the entanglement his wife is creating, wrestles with understanding his dharma, while Azoba strives for his final release into samadhi. Manju herself proves to be an admirable combatant in these struggles, worthy of her hero, the Archer Prince."

I rarely read fiction but this gem of a first novel was delightful from beginning to end. It is a gripping story of a Westernized Indian family meltdown and transcending redemption. One reason I avoid novels is the poorly constructed characters that don't hold up. Not this book. The people in this story are so real, plausible, and absorbing that you could almost touch them. And they in turn touched my heart and made me feel right there amidst their confusion and pain. The book starts with a bang and the action and suspense build to such a frenzy it was hard to put the book down. Beautifully crafted description and dialogue make each page a delight to digest. I appreciated the directness of the writing especially in simplifying the essence of complex Hindu literature so any reader can understand the inspiring message. It is hard to believe that this is Veena Damle's first writing effort. I eagerly await her next work.

'I AM OM' is a terrific story. I loved the parallel of myth and reality. The book is definitely worth reading.
