  10. This a Must Read Book for Everyone.I Started this book as a leisure read, but as pages passed,i realised this,was not just a pageturner I was Awe struck by the character of the protagonist and though the book looks simple in its language and story, the values it indented, Phew The book is not about Modern Women, Urban Life, its not about rustic people rather its about Everything in Life I read this books only for three hours and this would definetly stick to my heart for ages Ms.Murthy Million h [...]


  11. This book deals with the sensitive topic of vitiligo and how despite being a harmless condition of depigmentation it destroys lives and hopes and ostracises one from society and friends A young newly wed beautiful woman is the protagonist who deals with this condition and emerges out a much stronger woman.


  12. OK Let me confess I have this bitter prejudice towards celebrity authors But you will understand my prejudice if you look around the current literary scenario These days any celebrity can lend their initials literally to the brainchild of somebody else and smugly enjoy all the accolades and royalties for someone else s efforts How else can you explain it, when a fast bowler, known for off field antics than on field heroics, one who cannot even write a proper tweet without making himself a butt [...]


  13. There are very few books which make you cry or compel you to think about your stand on certain social issues and taboos this book in one of them Though it is a very simplistic and a beautifully written novel, it serves as a reality check for us One tends to get so busy with routine life and family that we forget our basic human emotions like compassion, empathy, unconditional love and friendship These are some of the tender qualities that have been reflected beautifully in this book in the main [...]


  14. Mahashweta precisely tugs at the right emotional strings with such lucidity and simplicity that one can t help cheering or grieving with the protagonist s rise, fall and then rise again The heroine is her own hero in the book Its been a while since I ve finished reading it but I still feel the sense of empowerment that this story has very successfully instilled everytime i think about the book.


  15. Like Rohini to Chandra, like Lakshmi to Narayana, am I to him Just as the creeper depends on a tree, I depend upon him I cannot live without him, and for his sake I m ready to renounce everything Let society says anything it wishes I do not care beautifully designed amazingly written Mahasweta is a must read for all who faced or made someone face social stigma Just loved it and loved Sudha Murty Ma m a little

  19. Sudha Murty She must be my foster mom, for she teaches me so much, so easily, that I never want to lose her The major takeaway from this read was no matter how hard you hit the rock bottom in life, you still can look up and hope for a miracle Anupama, despite suffering from Vitiligo, doesn t let it become the end of her life She fights all the odds and not only becomes self sufficient but also determines herself to be on her own The transformation shown through the emotional roller coaster she g [...]

  21. A nice way to let people know about leukoderma and the social stigma that comes with it We Indians are the worst lot sometimes Related so much with the book and the cause Mrs Murthy wanted to express.

  24. Was reading MahaShweta the other day, another excellent work by Sudha Murty As it happens with SudhaMurty s books I finished MahaShweta in a single sitting Though the book does have a little feministic tone I still loved the book for the discussion it brings out.MahaShweta deals with the troubles and the social stigma a married lady undergoes just because she gets affected by leucoderma.Her in laws wish to get away with her and her husband turns a blind eye How this lady faces all that and wheth [...]

  26. The story of a bright, beautiful and talented girl living with her father, stepmother and step sisters who are not as pretty or brainy has plenty of vital ingredients for a potboiler But far from it, Sudha Murthy in her compelling reader, Mahashweta, has converted it into a captivating tale of a woman who rises like a phoenix from the ashes of her own self.Imagine this After troubled growing up years without your biological mother to share and care, meeting a dashing young doctor who is besotted [...]
