"For decades they have remained close, sharing recipes, customs and the challenges of women shaped by ancient ways yet living modern lives. The are the Hindi Bindi Club, a nickname given by their daughters to the mothers who left India to start anew in America... daughters now grown and facing struggles of their own."

I loved this book - so delightful, but also with some serious issues. I do like most books to do about India and immigration and cultural differencies and when the story is as lovely as this one, it makes a book perfect one!

Sending to Annimanni next.

Finally got around to reading about the Hindi-Bindi Club :) It was entertaining enough, but I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the whole. The dialogue felt fake, especially in the case of the younger generation, and I didn't appreciate Pradhan's school-teacherish way of trying to educate her readers about India and Indian culture. Very clumsy I thought. Nevertheless, decent summer holiday reading...

8 out of 10

I was at first a bit intimidated by the size of this book but actually it's written in a larger font size and line-spacing, so it didn't take that long to read it in the end.

The book was a pleasant surprise: much nicer than I expected, although I, too, was a bit put-off by the school-teacherish tone at times. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the story and the viewpoints of two different generations. The recipes also sounded delicious as I'm a big fan of Indian curries!
