Review: Another winner with 'How To Say I Love You In Indian'

Filed Under: Arts & Entertainment
More on: books, gyasi ross
   

Praise for How to Say I Love You in Indian, the latest book from Gyasi Ross:
Pondering the title, how exactly do you say “I Love You” in Indian? What does this title mean? Page by page, Ross unfolds a wealth of responses to this query, and in the process unites us all as human beings who would be doomed without love and its capacity to shine like the sun through the blackest of darkness. While some would say that love is a feeling, Ross shows how love is much more – how it is a living, breathing entity: love can be happy, love can be sad, love can grow big and strong, love can suffer, love can wither and die, love can heal and renew… But most of all, love – real love – requires us to take action in order to have the effect love is meant to have. All of these facets, and so many more, come alive through the author’s deft hand at telling stories that are as enjoyable to read as they are thought-provoking, humorous and sometimes heart-rending.

A major part of what makes Ross’ writing so good is his depth of compassion and respect for all people in every sentence he writes. He reinforces the invaluable nature of love and, specifically, its immense power to help Indian people overcome the greatest odds day-by-day and century-by-century. As he writes in the book’s introduction, “We have been here for tens of thousands of years and ONLY with love will we be here for another thirty or forty thousand. Only with love. Our past is splattered with unconditional, inspired love that compelled us to survive; if we are able to survive as a people in the future, it will likewise be because we were compelled by love. It’s the only way.”
