Devdas and Other Stories
by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee

by Bhisham Sahni

Everything Happens for a Reason
by Kavita Daswani

Piece of Cake
by Swati Kaushal

by Shobha De Description

A bittersweet love story for the Nineties. The new bestseller from India's biggest selling novelist.

It seems like the perfect match. Maya is pretty, young, eager to escape her dull, middle-class home in Calcutta and plunge into the whirl of Bombay, where she moves after marriage. Ranjan, handsome, hard-driving and ambitious, has all the glamour of an American university degree and a wealthy family background.

Maya is determined to be the ideal wife,. Instead, she finds herself trapped and stifled by the confines of an arranged marriage to a man who, she discovers, is rigidly conservative and completely indifferent to her desires. She begins to experience, too, the utter loneliness of a stranger in suburban Bombay.

And then she strikes up a friendship with Nikhil, her charming, college-going neighbor, and the stage is set for an explosive tale of love, betrayal and paths not taken.
