My Review

The Madras Affair by Sundari Venkatraman is a romance genre but also highlights a pivotal issue that still grips the society in India. She has tried to raise awareness via this book that ends in a happy ending for Sangita, the woman who had faced it all at the tender age of 19.

Sangita is a widow with a five-year-old son, and her conservative parents are completely to be blamed for the state she is in, however; she continues to trudge along her journey by working as a receptionist at a hospital. There she meets her future, Gautam the source of joy and bliss that she had always imagined. The Madras Affair is the journey on how she dealt with her parents, the antagonists and found her happily ever after.

In this book, there were some goosebump moments that made me believe that humanity is not lost. The bond between the sister-in-law and Sangita. The relationship between Gautam and his parents and grandparents. The way Gautam's side embraced Sangita despite her dark past. Gautam was fighting for his love till the end.

All such moments made me want to finish reading it in one go....Maybe, since in my heart of heart I wanted justice for Sangita. Thus, crediting the author for how she sketched the characters in this novel while keeping the language simple and fluent that made the reader actually grow fond of them as the story progressed.
