The Other Side of the table by Madhumita Mukherjee

The Other Side of the Table by Madhumita Mukherjee is a very well written book. She really weaves the story through a series of letters between two friends in which we start connecting with the characters, Uma and Abhi. Uma is in Calcutta studying to be a doctor and Abhi is training to be a neurosurgeon in London. The letters reveal a deep friendship where both the characters freely express themselves. They share their secrets with one another and seek each others advice on a lot of things both professional and personal. Uma mentions her family off and on, showing that she is very close to them but Abhi’s family is mentioned fleetingly.

As you read the back cover, you feel that it is a love story, but this story is about friendship. The last line on the cover,”Letters with a story you would never expect”, is very apt.

Overall, a very pleasant and readable book.
