    This is one of those books which I wasn't looking for to buy but loved after reading it I picked it up at the Landmark sale solely by the virtue of what Gulzar had to say about Aruna Chakravarti's writing on the back cover of this book And she didn't disappoint me on that expectationThis book is about Kulin Brahmins from Bengal and their lifestyles in 19th and early 20th centuries It's a comment on the social setup of the times through the stories of different characters across generations So we get to see orthodox Brahmins who'd get their young daughters married to much older men widow women who go through many hardships and even lose the chance of loving their kids for no fault of theirs men who were part of freedom struggle who were led by the dharma they believed in and some who walked on the reforms path led by Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar and the Brahmo Samaj of those times I like it when authors give us a clear idea of the social setup where the plot is set and Aruna lives up to that expectation very well
