  1. I read "The End of the Dark and Stormy Night" a couple of years ago and have had a lot of conversations with Rajni regarding her book. The book is like a whiff of fresh air in the claustrophobic world of south Asian diaspora writing. The best thing about the book is that it celebrates the Canadian life, the Canadian life that people of Indian origin live within their respective communities and Rajni talks about their issues and concerns totally in a Canadian way, not looking once towards their roots in order to find some non-existent psychological crutch. The writing is racy and Rajni has the knack of creating funny situations and funny characters and she doesn't shy away from being politically incorrect. I am eagerly waiting for her second book.
