Mrs Varman by Sanjeewa Behera
This is not a easy book to review or describe. We have a husband and a wife two
different personalities. returning to India Julia and Sachin work on building their
relationship. We then have Vijay the slightly dangerous third wheel in the story.
The entire story is about human relationships within a marriage and how an outsider
would view the same relationship from another angle altogether. The book outlining
Mumbai its diversity, the glorious food, the never ending family celebrations of
one event or another all add richness and interest to the story.
The development of all three characters as the story evolves is another facet.
The story is very descriptive too of living with a family as against independently,
the lack of privacy, the freedom that elders have to be quite critical of a daughter
in law and the submissiveness of men who go along with the flow. These may be hard
to accept for some readers but it is factual and very much part of actual life in
many parts of the world, not just India.
