“Honor” Discussion by author Thrity Umrigar

In this five-star read, Umrigar tells the story of two Indian women who live vastly different lives as they navigate the challenges of love across a cultural divide. Smita, an Indian American journalist, returns to her home country to shed light on the story of Meena, a Hindu woman who was brutally attacked by her brothers for marrying a Muslim man. As Smita delves deeper into Meena’s story and the frustrating reality that justice will be nearly impossible to obtain, she uncovers painful secrets of her own family’s lives in India.
Umrigar is masterful at unfolding the rigid structure of the caste system in India, specifically how it adversely affects women. This powerful book manages to be entertaining, heart wrenching, informative, and thought provoking as it deals with love, hope, familial devotion, betrayal, and sacrifice.
