Tomb Of Sand: A new record

An 80-year-old woman, traumatized and depressed after the demise of her husband, decides to regain control of her life by going to Pakistan and confronting everything she faced during the India - Pakistan partition. She learns the meaning of every relationship in life, she learns the meaning of feminism. 

With a story as beautiful as this, India has registered another name in the list of its international achievements. Indian writer and novelist, Geetanjali Shree became the first Indian to receive the International Booker award for her Hindi novel, ‘Ret Samadhi.’ The book is translated in English by Daisy Rockwell and titled ‘Tomb of Sand.’ 

The writer of many short stories and three novels had never thought of achieving this honor. ‘Ret Samadhi’ was among 13 long-listed novels, which were translated to English from 11 languages and originated from 12 countries across four continents. Geetanjali will be awarded GBP 50,000 for this lifetime achievement. 

The chair of judges had a detailed deliberation over the winners which finally led to the selection of this book for the Booker award. “I never dreamt of the Booker, I never thought I could. What a huge recognition, I’m amazed, delighted, honored, and humbled,” said Geetanjali Shree, in her acceptance speech.
