      I just loved it. We get agree with few thoughts of author sometimes we don't . But this book is not about agreeing or disagreeing. It is about what mother in particular background will suggest to her kids about world and life. Definitely not for the people who likes judging people or have thinking like- only my way of thinking or living is correct, who can't step into someone else's shoes before judging person.

      The book Speedpost was gifted to me on my 17th or 18th birthday by my friend's mother. I read it that time. But now I rediscovered this book in my shelf and I had no memory about the content of the book. I longed to read it again. I longed to feel the motherly affection again.This time I am 27 years old.The book has letters written by a mother, Shobha de, to he daughters. Currently Shobha de is in her 60's, the same age probably my mother would have been if she was alive. I lost her when I was 7 [...]

      A collection of letters from a mother to her six children. The letters are funny, thoughtful and at times touching. It was unnerving to see many of the things that so troubled and bothered my fourteen year old self set down, in plain sight, discussed, laughed at, and made easier by, of all people, a *gasp* parent. I cherished this book very much when I was fourteen, it made me laugh and think. These letters definitely deserve a wider audience.

    5. Koel Dutta says:

      it's kind of a relaxing read. Neither too fast paced, nor too slow/ I'm just devastated by the fact that parents and their children can be that distant.

    6. Swagatika Mohapatra says:

      Just finished reading Speedpost by Shobha De'. Really a master piece. every mother, would be mother, not just mothers, but every book lovers would definitely appreciate it. Really mothers are the true world for their children. They surely knows how their child will happy in which object, in what circumstances or not. As she writes, God must be a motherThrough series of letters she is successfully tryng to convey her children the most secret and hidden jewels of life, rather to the whole world. m [...]

      This was my first book that was written by an Indian author and I like the way she writes. You can learn lot about parenting from these letters, some letters can make you laugh and some are very thoughtful. A must read for every mother.
