God’s Table: The Last Supper by Santosh Avvannavar, Jyothi Byahatti and Dr.Sandeep Huilgol

Review by Shwetha H S

God’s Table is neither a short story collection nor a novel. It is a collection of discussions about social issues. It revolves around a couple, one doctor and other a teacher. During every meal together, they discuss a social issue they faced that day and in the end ask a God-man for clarity.

The couple discuss about evils of education, ethical and moral limits, euthanasia, elections, problems caused by wealth, honour killing, sexual abuse, death, effect of social media, ill treatment of girls, killings in the name of religion and medical profession. Concept is good, but the God-man Paul popping out from nowhere seems odd. This book is basically food for thought.
