Shrimati falls ill when her husband is abroad. The feel of bombay in the book is an add-on. Her selflessness helps Shrikant achieve remarkable accomplishments whilst she loses a part of her lover every time he is promoted.

So, since she cannot return to Hubli, she decides to do her Ph. The story is small and crisp, with a simple plot line. They both have very different approach towards life. Collins’ arrival in India brings her back to life, and she uses her time alone to take him on a tour of North India.

Book review : Gently falls the bakula

They hail from a small town in Karnataka,are neighbours and their families are involved in an ancient feud. The entertainment quotient was high enough for me to recommend this book to people who like dramas and general fiction. The usage of English is quite simple and can be read very easily, in just one sitting. All was rosy until Shrikant tasted success at a very young age and his ambitions saw no boundary. He paid little or no attention to his wife and her concerns and would always drive away the idea of going to Hubli whenever she insisted.
