Crippled by polio but inquisitive and spirited, Lenny spends her days in the park with her beautiful Ayah, enjoying the company of the plethora of suitors drawn to her striking nanny.


There's the Sikh zoo-keeper, the Masseur, the Pathan, strong Imman Din, and Ice-Candy Man, peddling popsicles along with political unrest through the streets. Still, the majority of our story, being that it is situated in such a volatile period of history, comes back again and again to its main, central plot point: I become aware ice candy man novel religious differences.

One day everybody is themselves — and the next day they are Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Ice candy man novel. People shrink, dwindling into symbols.

Ayah is no longer just my all-encompassing Ayah — she is also a token. Blatant humour, subtle jesting, even moments of outright hilarity occur here and there, lending a lighter touch to the otherwise horrifying repetitions of rape, death and kidnapping ice candy man novel dot the narrative.

So, we are English!

But the fascinating thing this story does is that it plants these figures in that time very solidly, like figurines coming to life out of history books.

Suddenly the actions of Nehru and Gandhi and Jinnah ice candy man novel Lord Wavell and Mountbatten, people who existed too long away for me to really care about, suddenly seem much more significant, carrying so much more weight.

Muslim or Sikh, we are basically Jats. How can we fight each other?

And an enemy to their enemies. The Muslim men and children are butchered and Muslim women raped in the Mosques and then reduced to corpses by Sikh marauders. Muslims also reply Sikhs and Hindus by killing their people and raping their women in Ice candy man novel. All this show how fake is the sweetness of man.


It vanishes and the iced-face comes into light when such a situation arises. This was not story in just one village but it happened everywhere, the vows of remaining peaceful and protecting each other broke the day independence was announced and Muslims Hindus, and Ice candy man novel were equally involved.

Ice-Candy Man

This was a historical change, where the British were leaving India finally, and Muslims were getting their separate homeland.

This is often remembered as one of the largest ever migration in the history. The migration was full of bloodshed and stories of murders of people migrating haunted the people for many decades. In areas, where Muslims were in minority, they were looted, their men and children killed, and their women raped and taken away as slaves.

This was not only limited to Muslims but it happened to Hindus and Sikhs where they were minority, the prime in this regard being of Ayah, who was Hindu and she was kept by different men from February to May before she was finally wed to Ice Candy Man.

The writer being a Parsee ice candy man novel created the character of Lenny and her family in a way that it is indifferent between the religious battles. The author tries to present her view point in a neutral way. Personally, I guess she had been able to present an awesome piece of writing.

As a reader, I would like to read a book where the author leaves the decision to be made by me, rather than forcing any final declaration on me.

Although, the country taken under slogan of Islam, places like Heera Mandi were filled with people and to date they does. Lastly, what I would like to appreciate is that the book is not filled with just statistics that those many people died while migrating ice candy man novel how the Radcliff Award was unjust for Pakistan, this book targeted the simple emotions of love and affection.

Like how a child thought and perceived all these events.
