But above all, the book highlights the stigmas that exist in our murry to this day.

A must read for everyone! Loved this one, touched me deeply. She wrote many letter to her husband Anand, but he didn’t reply.

Sagara Teeram: Book Summary – Mahashweta by Sudha Murty

Anand, just like the story of Cinderella and gets a life dream come true. That story alone says a lot about the book.


A episode’d mega-serial kind of story. Nov 10, Cheena Chopra rated it really liked it. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Abandoned by her uncaring in-laws and insensitive husband, she surha forced to return to her father’s home in the village. Why is it that facial beauty is still considered the first and foremost condition for marriage?

To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: At the interview, noticing the receptionist, Dolly, touch up her lipstick, Anu remembers that she had never xudha lipstick. Anu regrets her implusive decision and returns home, only to leave it and go to Bombaywhere her room-mate mahashwetta college days, Sumithra, stays with her husband, Hari Prasad.

From the very beginning I disliked Anand.

From now on, Anupama is taunted and insulted in various ways, and becomes an unspeakable and untouchable person. After marriage Anand went to England for higher studies. The social stigma Anupama looked into the mirror and shivered with shock. I thought of her as someone who was making hay as the sun shined — hogging limelight more for her being the spouse of Narayanamurty, the legendary founder of Infosys, than for her own literary prowess.

Indian novels Kannada novels. Anand is an equally charming, equally brilliant, but abundantly rich hero, who falls in love at first sight with our heroine. What should be a lack of pigmentation in her skin, turns into a curse for her.


May 01, Umang rated it really liked it. I wish I get the opportunity to meet her one day. Touching such issues needs skill, determination and dedication.

I got a hint about this book from Sudha Murty’s own book ‘Wise and Otherwise’ as a part of one of her stories. Refresh and try again. On the last day of his stay, when Satya talks about not marrying the person one loves, Anu relates her story to him and tells him that occasional failure makes an individual more mature.


He is the son of a Sanskrit teacher so his love for the language increases his familiarity with Anu. I Started this book as a leisure read, but as pages passed,i realised this,was not just a pageturner.

Me, my mahasshweta and my grandmother, all three of us have had the pleasure of reading this book. Sad reality, but love Anupama’s courage and belief in herself. There are a lot of stories that revolve around the diseases like cancer, color blindness and so much more but I feel that this book is contrary. Anand went to abroad for further study. Her mother-in-law kno about this, sent Murrty to her father house. Anupama looked into the mirror and shivered with shock.
