By this story the writer as tried to emphasise few things-
1-- the myth that leucoderma is hereditary, or infectious disease.
2-When we take marriage vows-- we should take them seriously
3-In our life we should never take our near and dear ones for granted nahi to--
jindagi ke safar me gujar jaate hain jo mukaam
woh fir nahi aate, woh fir nahi aate
INSCRUTABLE AMERICANS..ANURAAG MATHUR
I wanted to read this book for a long time .But to my dismay its not very interesting.Its about an Indian student of chemical engineering going to US for further studies in 1982. he is from an affluent business family but from a small town.Its all about the culture differences,thinking and sensibilities and since he is a very intelligent person ( only with limited linguistic proficiency), sometimes his analysis of situations and thoughts is very enlightening, and some times downright bizarre.The ambiance of 80's is portrayed in a very realistic way.and sometimes made me feel nostalgic.
Married Life..Manju Kapur
It is about Aastha a middle class girl brought up by parents who are honest and bound with social norms. She has a few friendships with the boys on sly, but nothing stable happens and her parent marries her to rich boy from a bussiness class family.I dont know why but most of the time be it in literature or movies bussiness class is synonymous with no scruples and kindness.She has a happy family and starts teaching too but feel discontent in her married life and gets attracted outside , first to a man, then a women.
I find it disconcerting to see that a women who neglects her children for her own happiness is favoured but a man who is a devoted father is derided..why?
