I received the book, Matches made in Heaven by Sundari Venkatraman as a review copy and am reading and reviewing it story by story enjoying every morsel.
Beauty is but skin deep is the second story in the book. It is the story of twenty two year old Simran who comes to her mother’s best friend’s house in Delhi from Mumbai because her father had hurt her confidence with his lack of love and insensitivity. The last straw was when her prospective bridegroom also wanted to marry her younger sister, the swan. And then Nitin walks into his home, meets his houseguest, Simran and thinks change.
An interesting story. The author has actually discussed a topic that holds a very important place in the Indian society, the skin colour. The characters are loveable and the language is simple and the flow is good,
Loved the story.
