The story is great. It’s a fascinating read. The story shows some of the dark truths of the big city hidden behind the closed doors and curtained windows. I loved the way the story runs and expose various aspects of Indian society and customs imprisoned someone in the name of culture. The author brings the truth naked without losing the sensitivity of the matter. This book could be your that One Enduring Lesson which opens your eyes and make you think. A thought-provoking, enthralling and captivating read.
