Gently Falls the Bakula | Sudha Murty | Book Review

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. You can read it, if you please. I’m not very fond of the characters. Shrimati makes it clear that what sudga to her is his love, affection and companionship. She did her MTech in computer science, and is now the chairperson of the Infosys Foundation.


Posted by Mediocre to the Core at 1: A good love story. Shrimati, in desperation, tries to get Shrikant to give her some time, but gets chided by him.

Once the intoxication of power catches hold of an ambitious hakula, there is no escape from it. As the years go by, Shrikant gets more and more involved in his work, and it is only because of her shy, submissive and loving nature that Shrimati is able to put up with it. This is a simple story questioning the choice that a woman make and are they happy with their choice.

But the end of the book is probably something that the Indian women can never think of. This is a beautifully narrated story which many might relate to.

I felt She was too submissive than needed. Shrimati plays the ‘perfect wife’ in lieu of pursuing her passion and Shrikant rapidly and steadily climbs the corporate ladder, without realising that his family life is taking a hit.

Return to Book Page. The novel keeps you packed within its roots and compels to stay till the end. There is nothing like power.

It will not be incorrect to say that the book is mainly about Shrimati, her life, her choice and her decisions than about Shrikant.

Well, the guy is an idiot. Jan 16, Raavi Joshi rated it it was amazing.
