This is a fascinating novel written with deep passion in a typical poetic and dialogic style. It exposes the deeply rooted evil of the caste oppression in a rigid social hierarchy of India, especially in the rural setting, in which Dalits (suppressed low-caste Hindus) are found on a warpath with Thakurs (feudal lords) in their assertion for self-dignity and social equality. It brings out the finer side of catholicity of Christianity through the character of Robert on the one hand and exposes the inbred social hypocrisy of self-appointed guardians of Hinduism through the characters of orthodox Hindus on the other. The novel reveals the multi-layered storm surging within the heart of a Dalit woman in Bura- an icon of courage and assertion for the Dalit empowerment. More poignantly, it depicts the raging storm in the heart of the royal lady who symbolizes a deep-seated sympathy for Dalits and a profound hatred for the repressive practices of the male members of her own feudal family. The novel is compelling, engaging and exciting spiced with sarcasm and humor. It must attract a general and enlightened readership including NGOs, feminists and social scientists. The Storm Within is thoroughly captivating, the narrative description rich, the characterization vibrant and the human drama vivid and palpable. It is certain to enthrall readers young and old with its timely vision and heartrending call for understanding and compassion. The author's greatest gift is her ability to describe people.. The novel resounds with a brave new voice in the literary scene. It is a miraculous accomplishment for a debut novel. -Timothy B. Watson, Toronto, Canada Literary critic and author of several novels including The Symphony of Time It is lively and interesting, dramatic and with a concern for social problems and social change. The author has quite a good capacity for observation and a strong creative spark. -Genevieve Vaughan Feminist and Founder of Foundation for a Compassionate Society, USA
