The Madras Affair is a book written by Sundari Venkatraman for romance lovers like U.S.The Madras Affair is a great book to read .Author Sundari has weaved the plot and characters like a weaver weaving a woollen cloth by using some innovating designs which gives a different look all together.Why I used woollen cloth hear because it is season celebration and during this season we all feel chilly here ;-) …So as I was saying the plot and characters are weaved like weaver weaving a woollen cloth , Sundari here uses some real issues like widow remarriage in a very effective way while building a plot .TMA (short form of The Madras Affair) is awesome book to read and is very relate able .But one thing , I did not like is… Gautam ‘s early entry in this book and his entry felt too fikaa(ordinary for me ).

Sundari I wish you could have done a better job while introducing Gautam ‘s Character and by giving Sangita a little more than usual time to woo Gautam . In this book of yours I felt only Gautam doing the woo part and not Sangita .In some areas ….I could see Sangita expressing her love for him .But other wise It was only Gautam who tries to woo her in different way .Which I felt a little perturbed about it , Even though external factors were not conducive for Sangita but ….she could have tried a little more …. harder to express her love for him .

As Love is mutual affair and not one sided .

I was one of the lucky people to get an early copy The Madras Affair and I beta read it many month ago :)

Beautiful and graceful Sangita is married to a brute of a husband, of her parent's choice. Physically and mentally abused, Sangita takes solace in attending to her new born son. Luckily, her husband dies in an accident and leaves her a widow. Back in her parent's house Sangita meets Gautam a handsome English professor at the hospital she works and love blossoms.

Gautam is gentlemanly, courteous and charming while Sangita is concerned about the society, her parents and friends, she finds it hard to ignore him. Sangita's conservative parents are aghast by the fact that their daughter might consider marrying again and are vehemently against it. Will they overcome these barriers and get married?

Sundari's romances have always page turners for me and The Madras Affair didn't disappoint either. Gautam is the ideal hot hero that any girl might want to bump into and Sangita is one lucky girl! While the romance scores big time, Sundari also brings the inherent conservative nature of the city and its people to the forefront. Overall it was a great read! Go for it.

I have literally grown up on a staple of romantic novels, hungrily chomping on anything and everything that has love printed across it, whether in bold prints or fine! Reading ‘The Madras Affair’, I realized that I will always be a sucker for romance and that one can never be too old for it…Ever! This ooh-so-endearing book by Sundari Venkatraman had me in ‘hook-line-and-sinker’ from the word go!
Whether it was the nubile Sangita and her 'will-she-won’t-she' moments, or the sexy Gautam causing you to shamelessly salivate over his blue eyes and hot body (much to the amusement and/or suspicions of your hubby hovering around!) or the steamy scenes towards the end that almost sets your senses (and body) on fire, The Madras Affair scores on all fronts! The story is so real, the settings are so live and the characters are so believable that it is hard to stand aside and take a third person view of the story. Surprisingly, you will find yourself becoming a part of the story as it unfolds, you'd perhaps assume the form of Sangita or Gautam or any of the several other characters binding the story together.

What I also liked about the story is that it doesn’t rush you through the delicate affair; rather it takes its own pace and form- allowing the characters to guide the story forward. I also like the way the characters interact with each other and the beautiful way the author has brought them together. For instance, there’s a scene where Gautam meets Sangita’s son Sandeep for the first time. That scene is so vivid and rife with emotions that it brought tears to my eyes just reading it! There are several such delicately handled scenes that manage to make you smile, or bring a lump to your throat or create a palpable sensual excitement as you read through.

The earliest memories I have of Madras are of filter kaapi and wonderful thalis. There is, of course, a love for the fine silks that I would greedily buy whenever I visited the city. When the title of The Madras Affair was released, I was intrigued. I take this opportunity to thank Sundari for sending me a reviewer’s copy. The Madras Affair thankfully does not take us through a narration of mushy romance, complete with designer dresses and private jets. There is a very strong social theme that runs all through the narration, and that is what makes this book special. Sangita, the female protagonist took me through her pain and journey and after a point, I realized that Sangita is not just a character in this book. Even today India has thousands of Sangitas that walk past us or work with us. And probably oppression of women is so commonplace that we do not even realize. A young woman, a victim of marital rape (which some pretend does not even exist in ‘sanskari’ society ), Sangita is widowed at an age when many women have hardly even begun their lives. When the rituals associated with recently widowed women begin, I felt like shaking Sangita. Why can’t she just put a stop to it? Why can’t she just walk out? But thankfully the author did not take that route. That would have been unrealistic. As much as we want to see ‘heroes’ we also want to see real characters. And a young woman with an infant son and no financial independence could not take that path of defiance. The hypocrisy of our society, in which even the young educated ones take part comes in the form of Sangita’s younger brother. You would hate him for what he is, but he is one of those essential subplots. The likes of him are all over the place and Sundari handles it very well. But Sangita is not a doormat.Read more ›
