This book builds up slowly but surely and reaches a crescendo by the end! just one of those mellow kind of reads! very captivating, detailed and kept me engrossed throughout!

This is the 2nd book of Urmilla Deshpande I have read after "A Pack of Lies" and I enjoy her writing style! And "Madhouse: True Stories Of The Inmates Of Hostel" is up next!
