The cover of the book was attractive. “Marriage”, a eight letter word which has various emotions in it. From happiness to sorrow. From excitement of going to new house to grief of leaving one home. From fear of how the new family will be to the duties a girl need to fulfill. Unlike, all other girls of society, Shanti’s marriage was fixed. Shanti father was a poor farmer yet his daughter’s marriage was fixed with son of Sarpanch.What else would a poor family desire for ? There are many up’s and downs in a girl’s life after marriage but who knew Shanti would never rise up,once she would get married. Her in laws house was not a house of human, it was house of devils. Mano, the eldest daughter in law of the family was being suffered a lot. Not only Mano, actually all the females whether she was Mano or Shanti or Bhano all of them were equally treated badly in the house. The story did not end with these three, but even Aarti had to suffer a lot. The book was very well edited. The book may be a fictitious one but yes there are families in rural areas who suffer a lot. Not only one family but if we move and see there will be thousands of families. And in those families, there would be females like Shanti and Mano who would suffer a lot. The book teaches us to fight against wrong. The book is a good one time read. A person turns stronger when they loose too much from their life. The writing style was simple and the book contained many twists within the pages.

RATING : 3.5/5
