Just Another Day In Paradise” written by author Tom Mathews is a biographical expose on Rethee Devi’s trials and tribulations as an attorney while upholding human rights.

Mathews has fictionalized parts of this story to bring drama to the fore.

In this book, Mathews portrays the life of an attorney whose real life is stranger than fiction. Rethy Devi, as “Lakshmi” is the quintessential social activist who embodies the term “activism” in her every breath. Through her speeches and her own novel, Adima Vamsam, Rethee has become the spokesperson for the oppressed, namely the women. It is a responsibility; she leads with courage and passion, while defending her fort from the bastion of a male-dominated society.

“Just Another Day in Paradise” is bound to take readers on an interesting voyage through a not so familiar path. It looks upon the still existing caste and creed system that continue to dominate attitudes in India’s culture. This book is a great read and strongly recommended to all book lovers out there.
