( Free Epub ) ♾ The Fourth Passenger ♴ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

Interesting novel about 4 women in Mumbai in the 1990s A totally different era to most books I ve read about India Strong women, good characters, well told. A wonderful story of 4 very different Indian women, different in class, in religion, in sexuality who come together to set up a resteaurant In addition to the characters at the heart of the story, there are also gansters, political activities, teachers, children And a background of the tension between Hindus and Muslims on Mumbai in the 1990s. I liked the idea behind this book change through self empowerment, specifically female self empowerment but found it a bit stilted at times. Set in Mumbai during the Hindu Muslim conflict of the early 1990s Four women struggle with the status quo which means women are less than men and can do very little on their own Together, they decide to open an urban food stand, which they call Stree, the Hindustani word for woman While overcoming caste and religious boundaries, their business threatens certain people They deal with the obstacles the way women have always met obstacles, with kindness but clear boundaries and expectations.
