The cover of the book clearly shows that we are living amidst the chaos of every people. The sword and the rose symbolise that we can achieve peace only after we start fighting for our rights. And the Indian map shows that the issue of reservation and English language are not just confined within a boundary but all around India.
Tushar and Sameer lived with their mother Narmada in a small town of Maharashtra. Tushar was born with the gift of scientists’ and engineers’. His dire conditions inspired him to engineer a water tank inside a flowing river, underneath a mountain, to provide drinking water for the entire village. But his love for a Brahmin girl and his search for success lead him to the crossroads of life and death. Tushar’s elder brother Sameer showcases to the world the true talent of Tushar. Big engineers from all across the world came to the small village to buyout Tushar’s project from Sameer. Sameer with the support of public becomes a national hero and decides to fight for the cause of language uniformity in the country. Sameer fights against the age-old systems and politicians to bring about a revolution. After seeing Sameer’s popularity some youth approach him with the biggest problem in this country – Reservation. Reservation was meant to be a boon for the lower castes but now it has turned into a curse for the truly talented Indian.

To find the answers, read Brother’s Revenge. Manoj Puthran is an Indian writer. This is his second book after ‘1983 Love Story’ which was published last year.
The book opens up with the description of the lifestyle of the strangers who were brought together and tied up in a relationship called brothers. Tushar and Sameer were of different genre as one loved Science and the another worked with a revolution visionary. But they loved each other more than real brothers can. And the story is built on how the need of English language and the reservation in the society changed their life upside down. Amidst the uprising love for romance and thriller genre books, the author recieves a special applause as he decided to write about the burden which every Indians face now-a-days. The authors use of words comforts our reading and the speedy storyline helps to complete the book in a single go. This book not only talks about the distress in the society but also it covers the plots of love, parental care, needs and responsibilities. Every words are written with utmost care and the potrayal of every characters are unique in its own way. The starting 30 pages could have been better as they just stop as mere narration. But the story speeds up after the departure of Tushar to Mumbai. The author’s creative thoughts has flown in the pages narrating the achievements of Tushar.

My view on the book :
What if your success in academics end up futile just because of a term called reservation??
What if your world ( beloved person ) lost his life just because of the good he wished to do??
What if you become the single lower to whom every person bows his head??
What if you are rejected everywhere just because of your poor performance in unwanted language inspite of your overflowing brain in the required field?
What you’ll decide when you are burdened by both the present and the past??
Get your answers at the pages of this book.
This book is worth the penny you spend. It has the capability to inject revolution into your blood.
