There are certain books that are underrated but are of great value. These books are rare and hold a special meaning in everyone's life. Some of the underrated books are:


  1. The task that did the damage

Poaching is abhorrent. Imagine someone hunting you for money, venting you from your family and people you love. Cutting a part of "You" and selling it for money. And eventually killing you. It's inhumane and devastating too. How will you feel if someone breaks into your house and kills you in front of your family? Zillions of animals are poached every minute, but who cares? They ain't humans right? 


The book is set in South India and is based on an Elephant. The book deals with poaching of animals and is seen through three perspectives; the Elephant , poacher and filmmaker. But, losing someone by animal attacks can be painful too.


Gravedigger grew up as an orphan and was sold for labour and exhibition . He grew up terrorizing people and came to be known by his name. Manu, the studious younger son of a rice farmer, loses his cousin to the Gravediggerโ€™s violence and is drawn, with his  brother Jayan, starts poaching . Emma is a young American working on a documentary with her college best friend, who witnesses the dark secret between conservation and corruption and finds herself in dilemma .As the novel moves toward its tragic climax, these three storylines emerges to a  wrenching story of  love and betrayal, duty and loyalty, and the flawed relationship between man and nature.


Tania James with her witty and lyrical writing, highlights the social issue well and at the same time, describes the landscapes of South India, livelihood of farmers and manages to weave a heart wrenching story of love, betrayal and human- nature relationship.

4. The train to Pakistan

๐Ÿ“ŒThe book is set in the partition time in a village Mano Majra, on the border of India and pakistan".The book deals with murders , rapes conflicts depleting the scenarios of those times. Ah, the pain, the suffering  conflicts ,raids break my heart. How hard it was for me to read and not cry. 


The most heartbreaking part of the book was when a train arrives carrying dead bodies of sikhs, villages converted in battlefields killing and devastating the harmony of the unaffected village.


The atrocities of police , politicians which we can no longer relate to, the woes of the people makes  this a must read. 

The language is easy and khushwant Singh',s way of writing makes it more appealing.
