The Boy Who Loved by Durjoy Datta is my second read of his work which I read the story is making me so deep into this that I imagined the scenes while reading it. This book is a diary of a boy named ‘Raghu Ganguly’ who’s fighting with himself and think himself responsible for his friend’s death and recently join a new school.
In his diary, he tells about his family and the girl he met in his new school ‘ Brahmi’. The plot shows us about the mentally of Raghu’s Parents who don’t like Muslims and Raghu’s elder brother loved a
Muslim girl and after a lot of argument his parents get agree for his brother marriage but still don’t like their son’s choice and on another hand Raghu’s attraction towards Brahmi, who’s always told Raghu about her parents about how caring they are but in reality, they are dead.
The story makes a huge turn when Raghu’s brother died and his parents take away their grandchild from his Bhabhi(brother’s wife) and don’t accept their son’s wife and after a lot of request of his bhabhi, his parents accept her but only on one condition to transform herself fully in Hindu instead of Muslim and for being herself close to her child she accepts that. Raghu was so angry that he left his house on that day and went to his brother burned house with Brahmi but what happened next to make him fully broken ‘ Brahmi committed suicide’. Raghu left everything behind and started a new journey which he doesn’t know where too.
This story ends here only but its sequel is yet too read. I give it 5/5 ratings ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. In my opinion, this book is really good it brings light on people’s minds for caste or religion on what they think or not.
