Book Review: A Country For Men

If the cover page can say all about the story then “A Country For Men” is on such. I was waiting for this book since its cover revel and I would say it is a bold attempt in recent days by any Indian author. The title and the cover picture ironically synchronise and it’s crushed paper like back ground silently says the situation of Indian females. 

Just as the blurb says this isn’t an entertaining story but it shows the ugly truth of India. I don’t know how many of us know each and every detail mentioned on the book. I hardly knew 20-30% of the incidents mentioned on this book but this ugly truth left me traumatized. Before our independence women were locked inside the home but in last few decades women have started coming out of their homes and achieving in various fields but these acts by few men might take them to the same stage.

The author has done a poignant work in compiling the facts to portray the state of women in India. Every fact leaves the readers shocked and we know how severe the situation takes us to. The author has also brought how many obstacles and difficulties are faced by the victims during their fight to justice. As we turn the pages the author’s hard work and his efforts for the research are clearly visible. While reading there are many questions clouded on my head and puzzled me why these men have become so brutal.

You may be wondering why haven’t I summarized what is written on the book but I would suggest everyone to read the book to know the seriousness. The author has collected all the visual and written details of the incidents and jotted down in a readable manner. Judges were meant like God to many people and there is an incident that is committed by a Judge itself in this book. So where is the country heading to is what anyone who reads this book will ask. Our irresponsible politicians promised us for enough action but are none was put forward. The mob who protested for days have also forgot the unfulfilled promises and only the victims are fighting every day.

Don’t think this book is a collection of news articles from various news papers but it also explains the situations of the victims, their family, their difficulties faced while fighting and also the situation of the perpetrators and their brutal acts. This book can tell anyone the lenient law system in India. Only a strong and immediate action can control these perpetrators to stop their moronic acts.

Books were meant to change people and this book if it reaches to every Indians can clean our society and make a country for both men and women. “An epitome of awareness, excellent research with perfectly portrayed horrific truth” is all I could say about this book in few words. The author has done a commendable job in writing this book and his bold attempt is really appreciable. The language is kept simple making it understandable to anyone and excluding few printing errors I did not find any flaws.

I wouldn’t recommend this book to read rather I would say it is a must read to all women to know about the various incidents and also remember they are not alone in this fight. It is also a must read for all men to protect and respect all the women equally. I am not rating the terrific truth mentioned in the book but I am giving a full score to the author’s effort in bringing out this book. I wish Mr.Rohit all the best for the book and for his future endeavours.
