This was my expression when I came across the title!!
'We Need a Revolution' started with a bang. It just took five pages of the book to peek my curiosity and I was completely consumed by the book.
'We Need a Revolution' brings into limelight, an indigenous tribe of Andaman Island called Jarawas. The Jarawas have been living a peaceful life in isolation under the blanket of their age old customs and traditions until quite recently, when the visits of poachers, tourists and not so honest money mongers destroyed the peace of their tribe. Due to the opening of Great Andaman Trunk Road, they became victims to commercial exploitations and invasions by dishonest and greedy people. With the passage of time, their life became insufferable because of the ill treatment subjected to them by the Invaders.
So the story is about a bunch of youngsters with Shubhrodeep in lead who decide to come together to fight for the cause they really seem to believe in. We need a revolution highlights the struggles and troubles faced by the 5 youngsters in order to protect the Jarawa community.
This is the type of book which restores our faith in humanity and encourage us to do something that can make a difference.
Cheers to the author for writing something so different and creative.
Although the book started with a bang but it did end in all sort of confusions leaving so many unanswered questions but still it was a good read for a genre I don't really like. Nevertheless, this is a must read and I can assure you that you that you are going to enjoy it. The writing is good, storyline is unique and the characters are well developed.
All in all, 'We Need a Revolution' is a perfect blend of fiction and reality.
