Journey with Mahatmaji by Raj Sharma depicts the journey of a five hundred rupee note and the world of the humans seen through his eyes. Though the stories in the book are imaginary, one can easily relate with it. The division of the chapters into scenes is a good way of presenting the story. It breaks the monotony and also lends a fresh touch to the story.
The book Journey with Mahatmaji by Raj Sharma is about a unique journey where a bank note travels under different circumstances and is able to understand human emotions and sentiments. It realizes the need and their greed of the humans and the value that it has in their lives. It teaches as it travels and it learns lessons from its mistakes too. The language used in the book is lucid thereby making it easy for many readers. The scene by scene description about the travel of a non-living thing is a unique idea and the author must be thanked for bringing out such an idea in front of the audience. The narrative is so good that one at times will forget that one is reading the experiences of a common bank note!!
With demonetization taking such an important place in the lives of the people in India and with the ban of the old five hundred rupee note, the book will make for a good read for many of us and make us nostalgic about the old note with Bapu’s face on it!!
