    I innocently picked up an illustrated copy of this classic tale, from a neighbour's collection, a long time ago. I had automatically assumed that books with pictures are meant for light reading. What was in store for me was a story that shook me to my very core. Years later, when I had to dress as Olive Penderghast from the movie 'Easy A' for my farewell party, I was once again reminded of this book.

I had automatically assumed that books with pictures are meant for light reading. What was in store for me was a story that shook me to my very core. Years later, when I had to dress as Olive Penderghast from the movie 'Easy A' for my farewell party, I was once again reminded of this book. The Scarlet Letter tells the story of Hester, a woman who bears a child out of wedlock. She is publicly humiliated, termed an adultress, and forced to wear the detestable "A" on her chest - for the rest of her life. Even her child grows up in a society that ostracises her for no fault of her own. All the while, the child's father continues to live a respected life, in the very same society. But for how long can he hide his guilt? This book will make you question your perception of sin and righteousness. It will plead with you to review your judgements of people. It will challenge you to redefine your hypocritical understanding of what is good and what is evil. Despite being published more than 150 years ago, this book is somehow still relevant in today's world where women are often forced to take the blame and the very people who are to be punished sit in judgement over others. -- PS: Cannot help but add that this book also reminded me of a passage from The Bible. On seeing a group of people about to stone an adulterous woman to death, he stops them with one statement, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7)
