Shrimati loves History so chooses this, while Shrimaan selected the subjects which can make him go in IT field. Shrimati has to put gebtly with a taunting mother-in-law, who now gets a chance to get back at her enemies. Mar 20, Sathish rated it it was amazing. A writer living in Mumbai.
Their families are locked in a feud for the past few generations. Shrimati’s mother-in-law never accepted her. This was her debut novel written three decades ago. A simple but riveting story of a well educated and well to-do couple, where post marriage the husband takes the center stage while the wife fades in the background.
The meetings at the bakula tree that actually named the book and the way Shrikant told her that she can ask for Siddhartha, their third child while actually proposing for marriage. My aunt knows of her from when she lived in Dubai, and I often hear the story of how they maintained their own bathrooms when I crib about doing my chores. You must log in to edit Common Knowledge data. She is the one responsible for her situation now.
Eventually, incidents start happening that remind her of what all she is and has been missing, and the true worth and meaning of happiness. The way Shrikant runs after his work leaving everything behind reminds me again of the ‘Life is a game of juggling five balls’ story from Suzzannes diary for Nicholas book.
Return to Book Page. More work, more involvement and more power. On the other hand, Shrimati abandons all her dreams and ambitions to help Shrikant make his dreams come true. Srimati going away came as a total shock to Srikant. I never enjoyed reading as much I liked this book in particular.

Gently Falls the Bakula
Suha happens when we continuously force ourselves and take people for granted? The downside, the narrative is very weak, the storytelling almost like that of school kid which frustrates you in the beginning but if you have the patience, you won’t be disappointed, not totally at least.
Sagara Teeram: Book Summary – Gently Falls the Bakula by Sudha Murty
Now when she looks back, she has nothing. The way Shrikant runs after his work leaving everything behind reminds me again of the ‘Life is a ga I have always seen Sudha Murty as Mrs. Or will she give her marriage another chance Or she decides to live the life she has been living… Or will she break free… You need to read the book to know more and trust me there is more to the book than I have bzkula.
The novel ends with Shrikant looking back at his domineering self, and how cruel he was to his wife by not giving her due.
The entertainment quotient was high enough for me to recommend this book to people who like dramas and general fiction. Work is his breath. The contradictions made through and between the two protagonists- Shrimati and Shriman- are beautiful yet very real.
Shrimati loves her ‘Shri’ with all her heart. Be with people who make you happy and respect you. Shrimathi is such a gem of a person which are very rare and wouldn’t be able to find in the present generation.
Shrimati plays the ‘perfect wife’ in lieu of pursuing her passion and Shrikant rapidly and steadily climbs the corporate ladder, without realising that his family life is taking a hit.
Book review : Gently falls the bakula
A brilliant student Shrimati dedicates her life to shape the career of Shrimaan. Are they happy with the sacrifices they do for the tne of their partner? They go to Bombay where Shrikant proves himself in the software industry and becomes the MD. A beautiful love story that has NO happy ending. Perhaps, not everyone is not as lucky as me to have such a strong figure in their life and it is for them specially do I recommend this book.
The passion with which she writes about the places and the culture of her characters serves as a reflection of her own love for her culture.
