What if you were born without a country? What if you were branded a refugee as you took your first step? All this and more happened to young, charming, smart Tenzin Lhamo. Her crime: she was a Tibetan born in India. Ever since she became aware of her uncertain status, she would ask herself, how long will I be a refugee with restrictions and no right to a passport? Why can’t I have a country of my own and a citizenship? To fulfill her own aspirations and that of her family, Tenzin undertakes a perilous journey halfway across the world in search of a country that would own her, give her respect and freedom as its citizen and let her earn enough to support her family. Was she given the dignity, she yearned for? Tagged Chinese, an identity all Tibetans shun, she wondered if it was worth the cost of a citizenship. Will she be able to contribute as an individual to the Tibetan cause? Or would she have been more fruitful in her community in India? Will her husband ever reach her or wait for her? Even if she gained an identity and a country, would she lose the chance to have her own family?

REVIEW

“Pinkie touched a subject which people often are running away from. He, however, doesn’t want to create controversy and doesn’t try to market the book that way. He remains honest to the content throughout….What I like the most in the book is its first segment. The innocence of people living in small villages with limited resources, and the way they enjoy the life is explored pretty effectively here. It is good to see the relations between parent-child living in such circumstances. These days we don’t see villages and people living there explored so convincingly in books anymore. It is definitely meant to be a classic book…It is not that the book only explores the village life. The author has explored the psyche of children, youth, and elders quite well. While some of the children are happy living their life and wanted to live in the way the life adjust circumstances for them, there are some (like the protagonist) who want to make a mark and achieve something she/he believes in. The experiences of her studying in a hostel in the southern part of India, are not ideal, but realistic. ” – thinkreviews.com

REVIEWS from amazon.in

“Well spent two days with Mountains to Manhattan……it was a marvelous journey with an ailing yet strong soul…a tribute to the sufferings of all the refugees around the world. Words and expressions simply transfered me into the content….. Excellent contribution Pinakie Kansabanik…bingo……. ”

“There are lots of books which tell you about Tibet but what separates this book from others is it’s fresh treatment of facts and deep analysis of Tibetan refugees. The author sketches out a clear picture of Tibetan culture and their fate in our country”

“The book is a must read.The author has very profoundly dealt with a sensitive subject of Identity crisis of a Tibetan refugee.The protagonist takes you right deep inside the Tibetan culture,belief and issues deeply rooted within them.Would like to congratulate the author for his excellent debut novel.”

“”Mountains to Manhattan” is a gift of wisdom to the readers. The language, religion & culture of Tibet and the journey of the protagonist to find a country that could own her makes the book captivating exponentially. The portrayal is so real and keeps the reader so occupied that one cannot wait to finish it. Appreciate the endeavour and research of the author. I would like to give infinite stars if it was possible. Happy reading!!”

“The moment you start reading you are taken on a journey to explore the lives of Tibetan settlers and their predicaments through the young protagonist and realises how they are struggling to get an identity. The story is gripping and keeps you engrossed and wanting for more. A must read for all”
