I would have preferred to name the protagonist a complete jerk, not only he fails to express his love explicitly to Sudha he also ends up ruining her life by persuading (rather forcing) her to marry someone else.
The author does not make it clear as to why Chander does not ask for Sudha's hand in marriage (perhaps it was because of them being from different castes) The conversations between Chander and Sudha can be termed as mild flirtations but it becomes clear right from the onset that the two are deeply madly in love and simply can't spend a moment without each other. Their relationship simply can't be explained in words.
Chander's actions after Sudha's marriage primed with vacillating mood swings don't exactly qualify him to be a Devta (Deity or Angel) in my opinion. On rebound his wanders between various shades of love be it Anglo Indian Pammi's physical attraction and Binti's (Sudha's close friend) platonic love. There are also philosophical discussions exploring the thin line between love and lust and man's needs for each.
Nevertheless "Gunahon Ka Devta" is a masterpiece of unrequited love. A Shakespearean tragedy in true sense of the word. I am sure had this novel been written in English or by any foreign author it would have got wider coverage and would have been compared to the classics of Charles Dickens. That does not mean that I am demeaning my national language Hindi in any way. The shuddh (pure) Hindi words were a treat to read after so many years. It's a crying shame I can't write this review in Hindi.
I gave the book 5 stars because the story touched my heart. Oh how I would have loved to see the Chander and Sudha embrace and get married. Though a bit melodramatic by today's standard, the last scene will choke you in anguish.

This is story about Devine love and this novel is the medium to get feel of Devine love. In india love is given place with God, but only in books not in practical life, again their are many many true love and true love stories. Reading it like getting nectar from heavenly flower and it's very hard to control emotions.
Read it, it's worth to read once in life time.
If you ever visited Allahabad, India then you will go back to your memory lane.
