I have read a short romantic story by the author and had enjoyed the quick read and cute story.

This one is about Simran who has lost her self confidence owing to the constant humiliation by her own father. Her only 'flaw' being slightly dark skinned.

It is a nice story with a happy ending.

A more detailed review is here.

Another lovely short story by Sundari Venkatraman dealing with a problem that still exists in India but hopefully is getting less common. Very touching and romantic.

This is one of the cutest stories I have read in the recent times. A story which has a beautiful meaning about how we are affected by our skin color. Especially in India where beauty really runs skin deep.

Nice story

Parents should not differentiate their kids for color reflection.
And Color doesn't matter for true love. Short and sweet story

Love this short story. This was a sweet, feel-good story on the romance of Nitin and Simran. The book also portrays the parents who also look down on dark-skinned children and the difference in treatment. It is sad but I know it does happen. I love that Simran was able to get someone who likes her for who she is versus something superficial.

The author tried to bring out these stories from day to day life situation... The story line is realistic. It strucks a chord
