God’s Table is a collection of breakfast/dinner table conversations between a couple – Amrita and Robert. The husband is a Doctor and wife is a Teacher. The conversations here are based on inhuman events, the couple witnesses in their day to day lives.
From education scams, euthanasia, elections to honour killing, each chapter discusses a sensitive topic. When Amrita and Robert fail to find solutions to these problems they reach out to Paul – The Godly Man. Paul educates the right path to follow.
What I liked about this book is the range of the socio-moral issues taken into consideration and how relatable the conversations are. Having said that, reading these conversations one after another can leave a bad taste in your mouth.
I would have liked this book more if the people, Amrita and Robert discuss about were included as active characters rather than just names mentioned in their conversations. Somehow I think the impact the authors want the readers to register would have been more if they had done so. Obviously, then the book would be completely different with a different title.
