Come, Before Evening Falls debut novel by Manjul Bajaj for me comes with a wave of fresh air, wrapped in simplicity and is rustic in character. It is a love story at one level where a boy and a girl meet and fall in love. And have to face the struggles of their social context. Most of the English writing today tend to be very colloquial.

Come Before Evening Falls is multi-layered. There are subtle hints of prevailing caste issues like the act of digging of the ‘all-caste’ well by Rakha and his cronies at the school premises, so that all can drink from it without any bias.

In a society governed by strict marriage rules and the diktats of the Khap, Jugni knows love is not an option. Her beloved uncle, whose unspoken favourite she has always been, will die if he ever learns of this betrayal of family honour; her brothers, her grandmother who has brought her up, their social standing in the village, everything wiill be lost and she could end up a corpse hanging from a tree. She cannot - and must not - meet Raakha again. And yet...and yet...Set in the Rohtak Divison of the erstwhile Punjab province in the year 1909 - but as relevant today as a hundred years ago - COME, BEFORE EVENING FALLS paints a poignant picture of a young Jat girl torn between family loyalty and the undeniable impulse of love as compelling as it is doomed.
Reviews about Come, Before Evening Falls (6):
ARE
This is a good summary book of the lives of Gandhi and Jinnah. The author correctly maintains that Jinnah is often demonized while Gandhi praised too much. Certainly his analysis ends up favoring Gandhi, but exonerating Jinnah from some of the harshest criticism he might have received. His assessments are fair and balanced, and with the exception of a few lines (at the end of the book) that I think were improperly worded, his book is a serious and sound academic reflection on the lives of Mohandas K. Gandhi and Mohammad Ali Jinnah. Good reading, recommended.

Its a well written book. For people who have had their high-school education in India, the book will remind them of such terms as the Surat split, the Mont-Ford reforms, diarchy, etc. I would have liked the role of the British in the partition of India to be explored more deeply...is it true that they indirectly engineered the whole thing or is it that the 'composite-culture' idea was not much of a reality of the ground? But that was probably beyond the scope of this book.....I'm not sure! The part about both Gandhi and Jinnah naming Gokhale as their Guru/inspiration but not really following his ideals much is my favorite.

The writing style does not convince me at all. As an avid reader, it makes me think that the writer is an amateur on a historical topic. And it does not feel good. It does not even come close to Peter Frankopan's writing. I would rather consider this as a very personal interpretation, more like an essay than a reliable historical account of two personalities. I would not recommend it.

Fast service - good product. What more do I need to say? It is exactly what I wanted and I would recommend this product and seller. i love this author's writing style and the ending - OMG! You'd never suspect.

A historical masterpiece. Must be read to understand the imperatives of partition.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. Author seems to have very good hold on modern asian history. I was impressed by his non-judgemental and impartial analysis of the subjects and detailed references.
However, the book is poorly organized. Author creates interest in his subject by pointing out specific event in time but loses track by jumping on a different subject and date. For example, he keeps switching between Gandhi and Jinnah rather then focusing on one subject and explaining his character, rise, emergence, fall, failures, success, etc and later moving on to the next subject. I had to go back and forth several times to make out what exactly author is trying to convey. Although he adds analysis and conclusion towards the end of the book but lot of it is a repetition. The chapter "Jinnah: Lost and Found" is a repetition of what author has already written out earlier in the book.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know unbiased, fair, impartial and objective history of these two great political figures of South Asia.
Jinnah vs. Gandhi
