One bad-ass nomad; ten cities, ten strangers in an epic travelogue. Arya, Bani, Naina, Parvathy- who are these women? Who is the twenty six-year-old hippie, traveling across Asia, strumming her ukulele and armed with a dagger? What do you do when life splits you open, cracks your soul and leaves you beyond repair? A tale of pain, hope, strength, and resilience spanning three years and weaving through Pokhara, Jaffna, Srinagar, Hyderabad, Bangalore, New Delhi, Gorkha, Varanasi, and Mcleodganj. A medley of relationships, memories and heartening music. A legendary nomad, an Aghori, a young boatman, a war refugee, a poet, a yogini, a Rastafarian, a camel rider, an actor and an entrepreneur come together in a heart-wrenching adventure. She is NOT your regular hero! This is NOT your regular story!!
The title of the book is something different from others. Karma’s ukulele means may be authoress want to present in the form of the ukulele. The cover of the book is a beautiful creation and also mystifying.
The story revolves around the journey of a girl traveling so many situations, just to find an inner peace, but she doesn’t know, what she is searching for the entire journey. From the beginning, the story shows that she is not interested in human beings rather than boys. The each chapter of the book sync with the lyrics; which imparts a charm to the book and looks innovative. The story is rather disappointing me, all the same of the plot has been off the mark and may well be better. Though the authoress tried her best to give a grip to the tale, somewhere it didn’t feel up to mark. The language was lucid and aptly written. Lack of story narration I find here could have been needed better compilation.
The book is suited for those people who are all going through depression or a certain unbalance in life. Just for one-time read and ok ok type.
