Country Of Deceit..Shashi Deshpande
I like her one book , so order all they had..like Ships that sail, If I die today,Matter of time and the present one.all her stories are written from a woman's point of view and look inside out. The women are normal with all the good and bad associated with human beings.
In this one Devyaani comes to Rajnaur after her parents death and its about her life living alone in a house and people surrounding her,..her sister who married in love and finds difficult to match wits with her MIL, her aunt, who is dying of cancer and is bohemian in some ways,Rani a film heroin who comes to live in the neighbourhood and many more different type of people, but one special one is Ashok an IPS officer married with a daughter who fall for her and vice versa. She who is always righteous and doesnt believe in breaking homes, is hopelessly in love with a married man...the story is about how she decides what to do..what her near and dear ones take on this relationship and all. Written in a very interesting way, its a very good book, compels one to think what is right and good in life and many more dilemmas..worth a read....The writer always brings a local flavour to the characters and ambiance..its very appealing....like can we love after lot of thinking..is it possible to fall in love with premeditation..and if its natural then why moral bindings?
