She decides not to give up her life for her husband who had left her to die, and her family who had never cared for her. There are very few books which make you cry mahsshweta compel you to think about your stand on certain social issues and taboos – this book in one of them.

Their match was made in the heavens. After marriage Anand went to England for higher studies. She is very beautiful, intelligent and talented.

Her life becomes a muryy hell. I’ve heard a lot about Sudha murthy’s works but I’m really disappointed with this book. The events all remind you of those sad Indian movies of s and 60s.


Abandoned by her uncaring in-laws and insensitive husband, she is forced to return to her father’s home in the village. Post was not sent – check your email addresses!

And those who isolate people with skin problems, and judge solely on physical appearances, well That is when she takes her life in her own hands and decides to live independently without any inhibitions and succeeds in the end. This book is a nice read, but nothing much can be taken from this.


I love her work, both on and off paper. But I have come to believe with expe I have become a true fan of Mrs Murty’s writing.

The social stigma Anupama looked into the mirror and shivered with shock. Just as the creeper depends on a tree, I depend upon him. The name struck me first The major takeaway from this read was no matter how hard you hit the rock bottom in life, you still can look up and hope for a miracle. I understand where she comes from, to have a blemished skin can be a curse.

Dr Vasanth proposes her but Anupama rejects it and says that they can be good friends.
