I often wondered if one reason he ‘fell’ for her was so that he could show himself that no matter how many times she beat fhe in school, ultimately she is completely dependent on him, and a simple housewife while he has advanced to the one of the highest steps on the ladder.

Book review : Gently falls the bakula
You would think that she would divert her attention to other things right? That makes me feel very uneducated since both she and her husband N. A beautiful love story that has NO happy ending. Overall, I liked the book, though I was peeved by the characters.
We think our opinions matter the most and we tend to ignore the softer feelings of the person whom we want so much. There is nothing like power.
The story is simple, follows a single plot and focuses on the two main characters only. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Will the couple find a way to mend their relationship or will they go on as they are, with Shrikant using his wife like a secretary and Shrimati finding herself unsatisfied and unstimulated in her role as the ‘corporate leader’s wife’?
Gently Falls the Bakula by Sudha Murty

But her submissiveness made Shrikant to take her for granted. The Bakula tree is the sole witness of their love. When he lost finer ralls, she lost him and was left only with history. One of the key feature of Sudha Murthy’s book is easy language, even gemtly new reader can flow with the novel. The open ending is quite appropriate here, but still I would like to assume that at one point of time they again met and lived with each other happily!!

I’m not very fond of the characters. Not by just one but, both the participants are needed to make a relationship like marriage, successful. And, the historic story of sage Bhamati that Shrimati narrates to Shrikant proves to be bakuula prophetic.
Srimati had a fapls love for history whereas all what mattered to srikant was constant progress. Gently Falls the Bakula is the story of a marriage that loses its way as ambition and self-interest take their toll.
