Gently Falls the Bakula by Sudha Murty
This has always been the case with me whenever I find a Sudha Murty book in my hand. Her stories are always rather plain but what attracts me to them is the depth of her characters and the complexities of their relationships.
Complete list of the best Sudha Murty Books. The story is simple, follows a single plot and focuses on the two main characters only. It will not be incorrect to say that the book is mainly about Shrimati, her life, her choice and her decisions than about Shrikant.
Gently Falls the Bakula
The best thing about the book is its character depiction. Shrimati who is such an extraordinary young woman is dragged into the mundane life of a housewife after her marriage.
She who willingly gives falle her dreams is deprived of any other happiness by the one whom she sacrificed everything for.
Her plight reflects the plight of many young women and it is this close association with reality which makes the book such an extraordinary read. The beauty of her writing lies in its simplicity and in her ability to bring her characters to life.
Gently Falls the Bakula | Sudha Murty | Book Review
The passion with which she writes about the places and the culture of her characters serves as a reflection of her own love for her culture. In this book, the way she uses the Bakula flower to convey such intense emotions is nothing if not beautiful.
She transforms Bakula into Shrimati and Shrimati into Bakula with such ease and finesse that it is really difficult to imagine any other title for this falps. The climax is ordinary and comes as no surprise. Well before the end of the book, I had an inkling of what the conclusion might be like.
But again, dramas, as intense as this one is rarely about the endings. The entertainment quotient was high enough for me to recommend this book to people who like dramas and general fiction.
I conclude this review by rating the book three and a half out of five stars. Your email address will not be published. Leave Your Comments Cancel baku,a Your email address will not be published.
