    The book Speedpost was gifted to me on my 17th or 18th birthday by my friend's mother I read it that time But now I rediscovered this book in my shelf and I had no memory about the content of the book I longed to read it again I longed to feel the motherly affection againThis time I am 27 years oldThe book has letters written by a mother Shobha de to he daughters Currently Shobha de is in her 60's the same age probably my mother would have been if she was alive I lost her when I was 7 years old Speedpost the book is interesting read Letters by an urban mother letters to her children There were times I related with Shobha De's children Other times it was amusing I wondered why would a mother would write open letters to her children I mean if she would have given them personally what could have been the difference Then I could have not peeked into life of her children I would have not been attracted to Radhika I wish I could travel to Happy country Bhutan and among other thingsThis book definitely attempts to fill the space of absence of mother in my life It takes me closer to experience of mother child relationship I found shobha de to be very conventional mother and who talked about usual worries of mother It is an autobiographical too I meant not only about children but mostly about herself I found it filled with urban desires and urban lifestyle I had difficulty in relating to it sometimes and found it superficialI felt engaged to parts when she gave up some of her plans and assignments to stay with her children I thought it was very touching and self sacrificing It could be perplexing for many this doubtShe compared many times with other families and she always believed she had better understanding and dealt better with her children than others ofcourse it did seem like a motherly nature or human one to not see faults in one This book is positioned at a comfort level and when it sees the difficulties of life or problems of world it does not go deep Her views on politics or religion did not affect me anyway I thought it was exaggerated a bitI do find it interesting to read about her life and her children When I find some stuff online about them I do find it attractive and something I might want to know about It is because I have entered their livesThe book has around 100 letters Each letter 2 to 3 pages This is one of the books I found easy to read This book is special in its idea and knowing the lives of people I would like to read of Non fiction It makes me happy to read and learn about lives

    I am a regular reader of the writer's column in TOI and hence have a brief acuaintance with her vast pool of vocab Considering that these letters are written informally and to family members a little repetition of anecdotes is expected This book does than just getting the reader involve in their lives It conveys a message through many of the letters to the world Some important lessons of parenting are reflected too Its a goodread for readers who like Indian authors and novels involving a bit of a drama The author has portrayed herself to be a competent mother by admitting her faults and revealing her care for her children simultaneously
