The Last Color by Celebrity Chef Vikas Khanna : Book Review

I am surprised at how quickly I flipped through the pages of The Last Color, Khanna's Book thag has everyone talking. And why wouldn't it? A chef who steps into the shoes of a movie maker and an author after he was haunted by the image of 'white widows drenched in the color of Holi'.

In the 1980s a baby is found dumped near the Ghats of Varanasi who grows up as Choti, a tight rope walker who forms an 'unnatural' yet so natural a bond with an old widow by the name of Noor.  It is probably the beautiful image the author paints of Varanasi not through the eyes of an outsider but as an inhabitant that impresses me the most. Several events turn Choti's world upside down, but she is a born fighter and The Last Color is definitely a beautiful story of the power of women in a patriarchial society.

While Khanna's style is due for polishing, I feel that his frank narration pulls in the reader more into the book. The way he narrates important scenes of turmoil, of legal proceedings and conspiracies leave no doubt that he is adept at expressing his thoughts quite brilliantly.

I have been a fan of Khanna since Masterchef and Taste of Twist - even though I am not a huge fan of cooking. But having him write a book was a dream come true and I can only hope to meet him someday and have his signature in this red book sitting on my shelf :)
