The tome is regarding spot on female camaraderie, concerning maturing up pain and soreness, whilst the whole lot is not totally black and waxen as it every so often show to be, with the youths in this account a blend of the contemporary and traditional youngsters and this could be perceived when the matters of clothes, arranged matrimony and agreeing to cultural disparity were looked at.

The writer fetches the temperaments to being with the down-to-earth portrayal of 'Mem', the doyenne of the Dayal kin, mostly witty as she stand for the vigour and adore one must have in bid to aid maintain strength in the family unit, as too of Jayaram, the academy clerk, Chacha and the lecturer.

The wonderfully pleasant inscription is akin to a gasp of unsullied air and streams meticulous prolix that puts up an extremely patent depiction in the ogle of your wits as you interpret presenting a lovely conclusion to the stratagem that foliage you with a goody experience.

All in all, an unconditional ought to be read, the delightfully on paper paperback crafts you considerate motivated by a burly storyline and having premise relevant to modern Indian civilization with a concoction of the past, edifying information along with an exquisite fairy-tale spinned into one, where booklovers will welcome the clean and astute accent that develop and reinforces all the way through the reserve.
