In her blog post, Venkatraman provides a link to an article she wrote for Kirkus Reviews.
Below is the last paragraph from that article. I agree with what she has written:
"Books are more than mere mirrors or windows; they are keys to compassion. And novels don’t just expose readers to differences, they allow readers to experience diversity. They allow us to live within another’s skin, think another’s thoughts, feel the depths of another’s soul. Novels transport, transform, and, most importantly, allow us to transcend prejudice. When we immerse ourselves in characters whose religions are different than our own, our empathy is enhanced. We move closer to embracing people of all religions."
Venkatraman, Padma. “Accept, Don't Just Tolerate.”
