However if you are willing to be dragged out of the comfort zone of your drawing room in the Western world, then wade in.
Suneeta Misra’s Rani of Rampur is the story of Rani, a young educated journalist in a small town in India. She visits her aunt to help in the wedding preparations of her aunt’s son and stumbles across murder,political machinations, family secrets and cover ups.
This is an India far from the Bollywood stereotypes. This is an India in which the law treats women equal to men but society does not. An India where change is happening rapidly but deep rooted prejudices are harder to change.
Misra’s book brings alive the colors and smells of life in a small India town where time moves that bit slower and secrets bubble just beneath the placid veneer.
Bravo Ms. Misra for a fantastic first book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
