The book is in the form of narration by its main character – Shijukutty who is a poor Malayali fisherman from a village of Kerala. He gets fascinated by a fellow villager who left to Dubai to make money and build a good home back in his village. Shijukutty mortgages his only asset – his home and gets his passport and visa arranged by an agent. With lots hope to search his destiny, Shijukutty leaves his family behind and lands at the golden city of Dubai.

What unfolds afterward is the true account of what these small town people face in their quest to search for a destiny on a foreign land.

The whole story is kept very simple and written in a very easy language. Every chapter unfolds a new reality and that is the most sticky aspect of the book. It is a book that you would want to finish without getting distracted.

    1. You are correct Amrita. Many times we get carried away looking at others’ green side of life. Thanks for your feedback.

  2. The book sounds really interesting. Visited your blog for the first time. Nicely explained review.
    Would love it if you add in more details on how you found the narration, where the book is actually set in… I am assuming it will have a major chunk happening in some foreign country…, how the characters were like etc.
    Just a suggestion 😀

  3. I am intrigued to read more. This seems like an interesting pick for the weekend. I will buy it next time I visit a bookstore 🙂
