Honest and pure

Another nice book from Preeti Shenoy..
Its quite natural that women always tend towards security of their's and their childrens' lives compared to anything else in this world. This applies more to Indian culture. Elicited well that the pre-marital love and chemistry doesn't remain the same between a man and a woman, post marriage and kids. Though not spoken out, but most of the couples in India lead their marriage life out of compulsion rather than liking, unlike western countries. Probably that is one of the other reasons why Indian society is regarded as one of the best family system with strong emotional affinity that binds blood relationships for longer times.
It was very well brought out as to how a simple middle class lady who is not so beautiful ended up with a messy life after marrying a high flying businessman and later for being a good mother but not a good wife. It is lucky for her to find Akash, who loved her earlier, but not all women are so fortunate in today's world where men would like to befriend insecure women just for sex.
It's all well when the book ended with Nisha's wise decision of staying with Akash, away from her past memories without marrying him until the day she is convinced that she can.
Finally, what a way to title your chapters in sync with beautiful songs. Hats off to your imagination.
