Publisher's Summary

Renuka Sharma is a dutiful wife, mother, and daughter-in-law holding the fort in a modest rental in Delhi while her husband tries to rack up savings in Dubai. Working as a receptionist and committed to finding a place for her family in the new Indian dream of air-conditioned malls and high-paid jobs at multinationals, life is going as planned until the day she strikes up a conversation with an uncommonly self-possessed stranger at a Metro station. Because while Mrs. Sharma may espouse traditional values, India is changing all around her, and it wouldn't be the end of the world if she came out of her shell a little, would it?
With equal doses of humor and pathos, The Private Life of Mrs Sharma is a sharp-eyed examination of the clashing of tradition and modernity from a dramatic new voice in Indian fiction.

Disappointing!

I'm disappointed to come across such a dull and boring story line by an Indian author!!
The plot/expression is pathetic and language is beyond English...the author does not know how to use expressive language, and I question the writing flair!!!Better save your time on meaningful books than wasting it over this too mediocre melodrama! And please stay away from the audible version....the narrator is beyond sad with her absurd accent and funny expressions!!!
