      A book that has inspired generations. A universal classic.

      Children are innocent. They learn what they are taught. They do what they see. They talk what they hear. They follow their elders. They follow the society. And, a father who wants to teach his children the difference between good and evil, a father who wants his children to love the good and kill the evil, a father who knows that his children will always have a part of him in them and so tries to be the person he wishes his children to be. But when the society strikes, all these ideals are gone with the wind. He wants his children not to be the evil of the world but there is not too much good left in the world we live in. And his children are also a part of the same world. All the lessons he has taught his children, will be in vain with his single wrong step. It is a challenge to him to save his children from the evils of the society. For that, first he will have to be at a good distance from these evils. The only thing that comes in the way of your children and what you want them to be, is the society we live in. The society leaves a great impact on the innocents. Most of the things we see in our childhood, are the things happening around us. It is the duty of the elders to make sure that the children absorb only the good from the society. But when you are living in a cruel world, it is far more difficult than it seems. In these situations, the only way to do this is that you become the person you wish your children to be. But the society is far more monstrous than you can imagine. Everyday is a battle between your ideals and the society which tries its best to destroy them. It is the only book that gives a detailed view of the above raised issues. This is the major theme that came to my mind when I started writing this review. Other than that there are many more themes attached to this classic novel, written Harper Lee, which I''ll discuss in a little while. Published in 1960, it has become a universal classic. Being taught to children all over the world because of its inspirational themes and its inspirational characters. Narrated by Scout Finch, daughter of lawyer Atticus Finch, the book was a critical and commercial success upon its release. And it is still impressing the audience worldwide and is still gathering acclaim I''ve read it 3 times by now. And I wouldn''t mind reading it again. With its sensitive themes, beautiful story and its instantly lovable characters, this book has become one of my favorites and I hope it will always be. (This might appear on Ciao)
