      I have read the book ‘Letters to Gauri’. This book is written by M.V. Kamath, Indian writer. This book is the collection of 84 letters which are written by the author to his grand-daughter, Gauri.

      Gauri is an adolescent girl and is studying in a school which is far away from her native place. Therefore, the author is writing letters to her. But these are a different sort of letters. The author does


      not ask anything about her health, whether she has any problem in the college or how she fares with her studies. The author gives her knowledge and wisdom in his letters. He writes on various topics and the letters are free from family sentiment.

      Some of the informative topics are the national anthem of India, early Indian cosmology, concept of God, Indian epics and saints etc.. These letters are not only informative to ...


      • Gauri, but to anybody who reads this book. The book is also good for students and those who wish to have knowledge about different topics. The author also has written the book in simple style so that anybody can understand, anybody can absorb the knowledge in the book.

        Gauri wishes to have knowledge on various subjects. The author knows about her desire for knowledge. He also knows that not all topics are

        covered in school and even that which is covered in schools is taught in a complex manner. But the way in which the book is written is simple and every person can understand it. The author is not behaving like a grand-father, but behaves like a teacher, a guide. He desires Gauri to accumulate knowledge and absorb it. This book is good to be read. I rate it 8 out of 10 points.
