Review by: KaraSkinner on Sep. 17, 2017 :
Parineeta might possibly be my favorite of Borah's stories that I've read so far. The characters are relatable and in fact I know a lot of people who are similar to them. There are not many of the annoying exclamation points Borah liked to put in his earlier stories, and there aren't any author notes mid-story like there was in Interview.

I wish the story was told from Parineeta's point of view. It's hard to relate to her when we see nothing from her point of view except for the letter she wrote.

Parineeta's first husband irks me. He is easily jealous and controlling and I feel bad for Parineeta being forced into that marriage. While Borah condemns her second husband more than the first, I think the first one is worse. He gives Parineeta no sympathy or affection as far as we see. At least her second husband cried when she died and cared enough to send her to the doctor when she became depressed.

In fact, I kind of like her second husband, Anoop. Borah describes him as a heartless animal, but that's not a fair description. Anoop freely admits he uses women only for physical pleasure and that is what he wanted Parineeta for. But Parineeta wanted it, too. She knew exactly what she was getting herself into. She wasn't forced into it and I hate that her sons shamed her and she shamed herself over it. Her first marriage was way more tragic than her second.

He supported her and her sons, albeit paid for her sons' college to get them out of the way. No, he didn't love her, but neither of them were looking for love in the marriage so Anoop isn't exactly a 'heartless animal'.

All in all, this was a pretty good story.

Sacrifice by parents are not acknowledged by children is not uncommon. But accusing by a son as prostitute is really heart breaking.
