Subtly pointing out that men's traditional attitude within a marriage (arranged or love) can make a great difference whether it is a good or an indifferent marriage, is really well told in this story and also the important role good and understanding in laws play in a joint family in taking the marriage forward to be a happy one.
Traditional ideas like dressing properly and obedience being expected in an arranged marriage from the daughter in law has to change with the times is also addressed within the story and the all important dowry which even in an affluent, educated society needs to be eliminated is so well woven into the script .
Good responsive sex within a loving relationship leading to a definite commitment to marriage, is not left out in this book; making it an interesting light reading book.
I would certainly recommend this author for her well told story and not boring readers.
Sunita, 20, the younger daughter of Gokul and Leela Rishi, of Rishi Enterprises, is just out of college and wants to do a course in interior design, travel abroad and be independent. She belongs to a traditional family and her autocratic father wants her have an arranged marriage. Her father is a dominating male who feels women are made for marriage and home. She respects her mother and grandfather. She can twist her mother around her finger and her grandfather dotes on her and understands her. She has an older sister, Sandhya, who has had an arranged marriage.
Akshay Malhotra, 28, the only son of Raj and Tanuja Malhotra, is the heir of the Malhotra Empire. He has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Syracruse University. Unlike the Rishis, the Malhotras have a free, modern and non-formal relationship. They give him complete freedom to do what he wants.
One day, Sunita’s mother tells her that the Malhotras would be coming with their son, Akshay, with whom her horoscope matches perfectly and that she should meet them. She protests and goes to her grandfather who tells her that the only way she can be saved from the wedding is ‘if the ‘boy’ rejects her’. In the meanwhile, Akshay is upset that his father is forcing him to meet a girl for matrimonial purposes, as he Is not keen on an arranged match. But, after seeing her photograph, decides to see her for himself and waits outside her computer Institute to check her out and decides to go and meet her in the evening. Sunita also sees him (not knowing who he is) and decides ‘to send Akshay Malhotra packing’.
In the evening, he goes to her house to meet her and they are both startled to see each other and she tells him that she does not want to get married to anyone now because of her dreams and asks him to reject her. He tells her that her father would get her married off to someone else and tells her to marry him and he would help her realize her dreams.
Next morning, she hears her father telling her mother that if the Malhotras were to refuse, he would hold a Swayamwar and she decides to go ahead with Akshay’s plan. And thus starts the story of smitten Akshay trying to woo Sunita to become the Malhotra bride with all the twists and turns.
The story is sweet and once I started it, I could not keep the book down, I was so hooked to it. The characters have been developed well and are very real: Akshay is someone every girl dreams of and Sunita is really confused. Grandpa Ratan is endearing and I loved the way Raj Malhotra calls Sunita ‘Princess’. It felt that I was watching a Bollywood movie, only the songs were missing.
Thoroughly enjoyed this happy book thank you
The premise of the story is the liberation of Sunita; who becomes a Malhotra Bride and how it is a win-win situation for both Akshay – billionaire hunk and Sunita – a beautiful damsel. The story reminded of how it was to be so young and carefree, looking at the world with starry eyes. Dreams and hopes to fulfil and goals to achieve, even the naivety of Sunita reminded me of a time long forgotten in the grind of life.
It made me nostalgic, of first love, that innocent kiss that turned into something to cherish and those hot-tempered tiffs that landed me in hotter fun. The straightforward storyline has a few quick surprises and naughty turns that manage to keep the interest going till the last page.
It is a novel for young hearts as well as old because Sundari has been able to strike a beautiful balance between the modern younger generation that manages to cherish the values and ethics of the old.
I recommend this as a read for everyone who values love and family from 18 years to 80 years because this simple romance novella shows that it is possible to love and respect both your lover and your families.
Do pick it as it is the perfect summer read – fresh, fascinating yet packs a punch!
The Malhotra Bride by Sundari Venkatraman.
Foreword . What was intriguing in the title was that a south Indian author was writing about a north Indian bride and I needed to see how this story would pan out
About the book: Akash and Sunita are quite reluctant to think of marriage. Would it mean an end of their hard earned freedom? Both are perfect by themselves and perfectly suited for each other. The book goes on to capture how reluctance turns to curiousity turns to friendship turns to love. It quite does not end up how each of them wished but ends perfectly nevertheless. Sugary sweet. .
Takeaway : Things often do not turn out how we plan or wish for them to, however in some cases they do turn out better. :)

About Writing : Sundari Venkatraman has crafted the story very well by keeping it simple yet interesting. The choice of subject is noteworthy as almost every reader can relate and connect to the story without any difficulty. One of the best things about her writing is that she has kept the flow and tone of the story remarkably smooth and understandable. There is no denying the fact that once you start reading this novel you won't be able to put it down. The story is not thrilling and adventure driven rather it is soothing to mind and one can read the whole story in one go . Its magic of her words and plots which places a permanent smile on one's face while reading and makes one feel the emotions involved in the story. No doubt the author has written each word from depth of her hearth and has poured her experience and wit in the story. I enjoyed reading this novel very much. Though there is nothing unpredictable about the story but even that has it own charm which adds value to it. The word usage is decent and every chapter makes you feel good while you read it. All the characters are beautifully sketched and are believable. One can simply relate each character to people around in the society.
The theme of the novel makes the reader understand the concept of love and importance of knowing one's partner. It is the understanding between the couple that matters the most. Giving respect and importance to partner's thoughts, dreams and ideologies makes the couple understand each other which further strengthens their relationship.
1. The blurb of the story does not suggest the whole idea of the novel.
2. The novel is a light read and portrays just one side of the so called "Marriage Fears".
3. It offers too less to change reader's perception about marriage.
Despite all critical views, the words and story seem to come out from depth of Author’s heart and her effort is appreciable. I once again congratulate her and wish her luck for her future endeavors.
The plot was good and the characters were etched real! The writing was so flowy and caught me till the end.... I had to finish the novel in a stretch....i can't put it down...
A worthy read !! 👌👌😙😚😊💕❤
