By following the rules, beliefs, traditions, customs, of the Parsee Zoroastrianreligion – Nariman wasn’t allowed to marry Lucy because she wasn’t of the same faith.


It is full of pathos and realism. And as usual, with any story written by an Indian mattesr, I famlly the story personally — ultimately, this was a tribute to a city from the eyes of one far away from it, revealed through distinct memories and descriptions of photographs and references to Hindi songs and idioms, and charatcers highlighting its chaotic blend of creed and religion and class.

I had read this book a long time ago but still remember it as it dealt with a slightly different aspect. Leggerlo dovrebbe insegnare ai figli che bisogna avere molta pazienza con i genitori anziani e i loro acciacchi, e che fa,ily giorno saremo vecchi anche noi e si spera che i figli si prenderanno cura di noi.
