Book Review   by:VrundaShirali     Original Author: Sudha Murthy
ª
 

Gently Falls The Bakula is the story of Shrikant and Shrimati studying in std. X, when the novel opens. Two outstanding students of their school in the town of Hubli, their destinies seem entwined by the gentle teasings of their friends. When Shrimati tops in the final Board exams, where Shrikant claims the second place, he feels a twinge of deep  resentment. But Shrikant later realizes that the introvert yet charming Shrimati has attached herself to the secret gallery of his heart. The two understand that gradually they have become one in their inmost heart. And their emotions are sweet and strong, like the fragrance of the bakula flower which inspired their innocent love. Time arrives when Shrikant and Shrimati clasp hands with the vow to spend their lives together.

Shrikant secures a job in an IT company and proves his ability to shoulder responsibilities. In a short span of time he wins the admiration of his colleages and boss. But his presence in Shrimati’s life dims off. Shrimati at a crossroad, is faced to choose between her academic aspirations and her husband, nobly closes the door on her dreams and becomes a loyal wife. As Shrikant sinks deeper into his work Shrimati’s life becomes hollow. Her love for history, a burning seed in her chest, begins smouldering. She realizes that her duties as a wife had drawn curtains on her joys. Her pure, ineffable yearning to study makes Shrimati think over again. With her emotions aside, Shrimati begins the passionate search for a path which leads to her ultimate happiness.
