Publisher's Summary

Zindagi 50-50's young writer Bhagwant Anmol manages to cover sensitive topics which tug at the very fabric of our society. In Bali Umar he has managed to do the same. At the center of the novel are a child’s innocence, his shenanigans, and a child’s raging curiosity to fathom everything about life. 

The main protagonists of the novel are children, and the plot is set in a village. The novel is an attempt to address societal-political and caste angle issues through the medium of children. The novel tries to address a relevant point of fissure in today’s society, where the feeling of Indian-ness is getting lost in every other differentiation, which the society has in its underbelly.

The author was endowed with Uttar Pradesh Sansthan’s Balkrishan Sharma Navin award in 2017. His previous book, Zindagi 50-50, is the center of research for many research scholars. 

Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi.

script & story mismatch

The generation that is born & brought up in cities may accept the script & story woven togather. For us, who have close links to real villages it is difficult to digest the concept of mohalla in a village that too a remote one. Touching emotions of characters is also a bit disintegrated and un convincing. I had opted for the book for nostalgic reasons but then over-all missed that feeling. As regards the narrator, he has done full justice to his part and 3rd 🌟 is on account of Mr. Kochhar narration of the 2 star story.
