Para Dige (Along the Road)

Second Prize

An interesting novel I read recently is Para Dige which means along the road. It is written by Leticia Boteju. This book is about an orphaned little boy. It describes how he faced difficulties with courage and how he was able to finally succeed in life. Further, this book shows that there are both good and bad people living in society. So we need to be very careful in taking decisions in life. The language of the book is very effective and I could visualize the scenes. This book also shows us the importance of human relationships and good qualities such as love and kindness. I realized how beautiful and valuable our life is by reading this book.
