इस उपन्यास के नायक बाबू अमृतराय का विवाह ‘प्रेमा’ नामक युवती से होना तय हुआ था, लेकिन कुदरत की लीला के कारण तब ऐसा न हो सका।
इस कथानक में समाज सुधारक बाबू अमृतराय ने ‘एक विधवा को अपना जीवन संगिनी बनाकर ‘विधवा विवाह’ का विरोध करने वाले समाज के पोंगा पंडितों को गहरी सीख दी है...

Indroduction:

This year I planned to read more Hindi books but it got sidelined so I decided to add it in my monthly reading challenge. The title of this book makes me choose this book. After reading Nirmala, I had a high hope with this book. So let’s check what this book offers.

Plot summary:

Amritrai is a rich, highly educated man in the town. He loved to don shirt and pant, unlike the other people. But he is a calm natured man who wants to reform the society from its old age norms and customs.

People loved this idea but they never actually participate in this. Even his friends find it ridiculous and don’t provide support. Amritrai’s marriage is fixed with another rich upper caste girl named as Prema. For Prema there is one person, who can be her husband and i.e. Amritrai she actually worships her.

Busy in his work and the future reforming activities Amritrai has pushed the marriage since four years. Amritrai’s friend Daannath also loves Prema. One day, news broke that Amritrai has accepted Christianity. This was rumor which occurred due to misunderstanding but this was enough for Prema’s father to break this marriage.

On the other side, Prema’s doesn’t able to accept this fate and her condition gets worsened day by day. In this comes Prema’s friend Poorna, a 20-years-old married Brahmin girl. She tries her best to comfort Prema.

While all this, on one unfortunate day of Holi, Poorna’s husband accidentally found death in Ganga. A widow Poorna have to follow all the harsh rules made for a widow. She can’t comb her hair, she can’t talk to anybody, and she is not invited to anyone’s house.

Amritrai is a friend of Poorna’s husband and out of sympathy, he starts helping her. Amritrai starts loving Poorna and proposed her to marry. Widow Remarriage was a taboo at that time and with lots of trouble and criticism Amritrai manages to marry Poorna. Here Prema is wedded to Daannath.

How does this odd marriage going to work? What fate is looming on the head of these four people? Read this book to know further.

Writing style:

The characters are very well-developed and interlinked to each other. The language is very beautiful and the use of ‘Awadhi’ words makes it more amazing. The narration is engaging making you finish this book two sittings.

My perception:

This book is a masterpiece, written by the genius. With this story, the writer has also showcased the dark rules in our society. The character of Amritrai is very powerful but I didn’t like the way he chose to remain silent for Prema. This story shows a love story, friendship, betrayal and also gives a message. The author has kept the ending open with an unexpected twist. This book is truly touching and I recommend this book to each and every reader.

Love Sutra by @urvashi_pahwa 
Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Love is a feeling which cannot be expressed in the words. From many years, poets and writers are penning about this. Over the time, the definition of love changed. If we see the present situation then there are very few people who love each other unconditionally.  Living in the modern era when the other things take importance, do we have time to explore and understand love? The author of this book tried to give us some influential love sutra through the various stories. Thank you so much dear author for giving me a chance to read and review your debut work. 😊

First of all, I would like to thank the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first thing which attracts the readers is the enchanting book cover, adorned with magenta colour and the palm of Buddha. This book cover can attract even a non-reader. After reading the blurb and genre, I was quite skeptical about this book but to my surprise, it turned out to be one of best non-fiction books of this year. .

  • #octoberwrapup 🍀
I am writing a post after a long time, this month was not good for me. There were so many family emergencies. My fiance was sick and frequently admitted to the hospital. We have lost one of our close relatives. 🙁 Overall, this month was very sad and despite being a month of Diwali it didn’t go well. Only the good news is that I joined my new job and I am very much happy with my work, team, and company. Due to all these, my mind was totally occupied and reading totally got sidelined. I able to complete just 4 books, among them, two were small reads.
