Times of India reviews Bloodline Bandra

Painting a vivid portrait of life in the Pali village, the book is an engrossing tale of love and loss, of home and homelessness.

The protagonist, David Cabral, a journalist and also one of the originals – an East Indian from Pali – manages to move from his village and head to New York to chase the big American dream. But after reaching there, his dream crashes as he isn’t able to make both ends meet.

What is more difficult was that he couldn’t collect enough money to head back to India. In between, he finds solace in a Japanese cello student, with whom he falls in love. But that too isn’t promising because of their cultural differences.

This book captures with flair and wit the flavourable language of the East Indians, life in the tight-knit community of Pali village and a way of life that is dying.
