Review


Color me father is an open letter by a father to his son. It is not a mere letter it is a poetic prose with an in depth interaction between a father and his son. It  is rather a monologue, an engaging one at that.

Author had kept the letter a purely impersonal one. He writes to his Son Rafi about his life, Rafi's life, his family, wife, Rafi's birth, his birth and many more things. Apart from these he has discussed several worldly matters with his son. As a father he is equipping his son to develop an awareness and opinion about everything around him. 

The snippets of his past is a painful one. He has given the anecdotes in such a way that the readers won't be able to take it off from their mind considering the fact that it's reality. Despite having a troublesome childhood, he wants his Son to have a perfect life. The narration is literarily high value. 

There are not characters as such. Rafi is also coming in the picture only when author addresses him. Nonetheless, Rafi is there throughout. Overall the book is simultaneously a heart-wrenching and heartwarming one. Nonetheless, the curse of losing the pace has followed this book like the majority of books in the world of literature. However author has succeeded in gaining the momentum back.
