Today I am sharing a review of a book which is written by a close friend and a co blogger. I had the opportunity to review her first book and must say she has an art of grabbing readers attention.

ABOUT THE BOOK
"Marriages are made in heaven"- Well what does this really means? It means there is a divine power that ultimately plans or decides who should marry whom, outside of the control of the people in the marriage. You cannot foretell who will marry whom ; Two people may love each other very much but may end up not marrying each other and two people who do not even know each other may marry each other in the end. This is the irony of life and this is what this book " AAVISHKA" reminds us of. If we talk about India in particular the very nature of marriage which is still highly constrained by patriarchal socio-cultural norms and tends to be determined by families rather than the individuals who enter into the marriage.
Have you ever thought why women stay in a unhappy marriages? What really holds them back? Every woman has their own reasons but do you think any reason can be greater than their self respect? All these questions may not have straight answers but this book does provoke you to think on these lines. This is a work of fiction but based on a true story.
