“At times these horrendous hours would make her feel perplexed and afraid. ‘Where am I?’ she would wonder and shudder…Perhaps, feeling dwarfed by the numbers and regulations, she seemed muted. Lost into her world of thoughts, Lakshmi would try to see a flash of her days as a free bird.”
A departure from the genre of romance, this book talks about a Mother- the first love and lady of any child.
Set in the era of early 1970’s, this book attempts to look into the life of a carefree girl who grows up into a woman with great courage and conviction. She handles all challenges, relations as fragile as glass, her son’s health, her brother in law’s domination and intrusions, transformations the followed the death of her in-laws...Did she fit in as a Badi Bahu? Did she give in to the pressures or did she fight back?
Did Lakshmi emerge as the Iron lady of the house?
