    Good Read

    This book is good for a light read. If you have got a lot of spare time, then reading this book won’t hurt. The language is easy to the eyes. You can flow through the book in no time.
    Maya is eager to escape her dull middle-class existence with her parents in Calcutta.

    When a possible suitor in Bombay shows interest in her, Maya jumps at the opportunity and accepts his marriage proposal.

    Ranjan is handsome and ambitious, has studied in the US and comes from a wealthy family. Maya could not have hoped for better, she is told.

    She soon finds herself trapped and stifled in an arranged marriage to a man she soon finds to be conservative, indifferent to her needs or desires, and completely devoted to his mother.

    Maya can never be as good as Ranjan’s mother no matter how hard she tries, no matter what she does.

    Then she meets Nikhil, a charming neighbour.

    Nikhil forces her to question her complete devotion to her husband and sterile existence. The stage is set for a tale of betrayal, an extra-marital affair. This is a dark, hopeless story about arranged marriages.
