My favourites are the goddesses, for there are so many hidden dimensions to them, so many interpretations possible. Durga is a favourite, for she epitomises the modern woman whose nature mirrors hers on different occasions - from the gentle Gauri to the fiery Kali. (less)

Usha Narayanan Thank you AR. I'm delighted with your review!


message 1: by AR

AR Finished the 'Madras Mangler " . Engrossing and a fast paced plot with no dip in the tempo till the end.
a good book to curl up with on a lazy afternoon with a hot cuppa of chai !
