This book is a collection of incidents that form her memoirs and help her 'discover the soul of India'.

And that's just my problem with it. A collection of 10 incidents about poor, rich people does NOT mean discovering the soul of India, Mrs. Murthy.

More details I have not read Sudha Murthy before though I have read that she written quite a lot. This time I got my hands on it as my brother bought it.

The book is written in a very simple and plain style. Describing some very common stories that the author came across in her life. The statement she makes in the preface stands correct for such stories and it is that "we all come across such strange and touching incidents in our life it is just that we forget them".

Well some people makes note of them and get a chance to share with others. This is what Sudha has done in this book.

The book is written in a very simple language and does contains interesting stories with happy and sad endings showing different facets of life.

A good short read.
