When I started reading this book I thought of Abhishek as some gutless fellow who couldn’t even defend his father when his wife spoke rudely about him, Anjali as some highheaded woman who was unnecessarily paranoid about his husband having an affair with his best friend and didn’t even try to understand her husband’s situations, Sundaram as a weird man who didn’t want to live with his son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter because he wanted to take care of another man.

Well, all these notions changed when I continued reading. Sundaram was an incredibly humble, warm and selfless man, Abhishek was the son every father would wish for, no matter where he was now, he yearned to live with his father, wanted to take care of him and spend time with him. And Anjali’s paranoia wasn’t totally baseless, and more than that she was a woman who owned up to her mistake and tried to rectify it.

This is what life is all about, sometimes a lot and sometimes a little of everything. And the Author @bala_pcb has done a great job at portraying it ! The narration and writing style was amazing. What I liked best is the characterization. The characters were so real, it was so easy to connect with them. They had their flaws but they had the good in them too. Even though the plot was ordinary, the other has shown his skill to make it a memorable one. The parts where corporate meeting and plans where discussed seemed a little boring and kind of unnecessary. And I liked the climax, it was so so emotional, so heartwarming and totally unpredictable !
