The author has written it in a manner of a script. It felt like I was reading a stage show narrative with proper explanations and how to enact each scene.
The story touches the subtleties of human tragedies and the way he described them makes it a heart-wrenching read.
The topics he touches on are varied and still prevalent in today's India.
1. Marrying off a girl to a man 20-30 years older and a widower to save dowry.
2. Trust is the sole foundation of every relationship and how mistrust can ruin even the most revered relations
3. How the society affects your thought process and this has adverse effects on children.
4. How when you give into a tragic moment and from there on begins the decline of a family and how children get ruined and end up in the most unfavourable places.
5. Finally, how guilt ends up consuming you.
The best part was how he managed to write where even though people were cunning, heartless and all other things there was no character you'd want to hate. It was all circumstances that made them who they were and how circumstances took lives and played around with emotions and eventually showing us how we are bound by it.
The marriage gets broken as boy’s family thinks that they will not get any dowry from Nirmala’s family.
Nirmala’s mother who doesn’t have money to give in dowry marries off Nirmala to an aged man of 40. This man is also a father of three sons. His elder son’s age is same as Nirmala’s age.
Nirmala’s husband doubts Nirmala and his elder son which leads to the death of his son.
Read this book to know the plight of Nirmala and how this odd marriage leads to various troubles in the life of everyone related to them.
