Tears in God’s Own Country is the story of Chenda, a percussion player in a fictional village in India who dreams of making it big in America. Caught up in the labyrinth of colorism, caste system, religious strife, and political deception, the protagonist never boards a plane. Though the story is set in 1960s India, the novel highlights the evils of the caste system, religious fanaticism, and the cultural quirks that still exist worldwide. The symbolism in the final chapter doesn’t go unnoticed.
