Book Review of Milan (A Wedding Story)
About the Book:
When a daughter turns marriageable age, what should a responsible father do? Easy--wed her to the most suitable boy who comes knocking on the door. Jai Bharadwaj, Mili's father and owner of The Serenity Tea Estate in the idyllic Nilgiris would've probably liked to do the same, but being who he was, he had to ask her first. What would she say?

It is a typical story of an Indian marriage and describes the celebrations that accompany prior to the wedding ceremony. The setting of the story is perfect as it shows the adrenalin rush in the two love birds have, before their marriage date. Dinning and laughing at small things with each other and enjoying each other differences and appreciating them. The fear of being separated and the joy of being united, taking vows never to part and at the same time teasing each other, thereby creating a healthy relationship is the quite vividly described in the story.
All the emotions of fear and anxiety have been described in a beautiful way by the author. The expectations the society has from the love birds and how they mould themselves to make everyone around them has been the spotlight of the story.
Great story that you can read to float into the world of imagination.
