Book Review: Penalty & Pardon by Ramu Upadhaya

The world is a troubled place for a sane and pious person. Based on similar lines is the Ramu Upadhaya’s latest offering “Penalty & Pardon”, a sort of fiction, of course with old-days like philosophical touch. At the fa├žade of the story, we confront with main characters like Patrick, Desmond, and Baxter. Patrick has not seen the mystical God but believes in him and is ready to dedicate all his life for godly good work that is appreciated by the angles of God. But having said that, it is not easy. The path of god! His mettle and faith will be tested by devil forces and shadows. And those devils in the story are represented by Desmond and Baxter. The title is contrasting to its essence. Penalty refers to pain and tribulation inflicted by evils to the people embraced the ways of God. And pardon refers to forgiveness bestowed on devilish forces. The novel is highly imaginative yet insightful. The author took all the efforts to show how a person’s providence is challenged by the see

The author, in fact, shared shreds of memories and experiences from his life, the people he met and worked with or came across while traversing through a journey called LIFE. Every chapter has a name and reverberates well with the inside content. The way he explores circumstances and puts the special memories in the lane of time, it is just a matter of time h
