The Journey, by Khozem Poonawala
The year was 1966. Interfaith marriages in India were a taboo. They were rare and often provoked violence.
The Journey is the telling of one such love; of the trials and tribulations faced by a Muslim boy and a Hindu girl, both mired in a forbidden love.
The novel delves into the complexities of interfaith marriages and unravels the resentment and intolerance of individuals in particular and society in general.
