Joys and Woes of Marriage in India by Hemalatha Gnanasekar. Book coverIn India, marriage is more than a contract. It is the joining of earthly and divine goods.

Marriage forges a new path for the next generation as well as riches, social standing, gratification, and refuge. It is also a wonderful melding of ideas, emotions, as well as hurdles and their corresponding resolutions.

Put simply, Indian marriages are not just a two-person affair. It is the coming together of family and community with love at the forefront.

However, as with all things in life, marriage is not black and white. When love and understanding ebb, heartbreak and sorrow flow. But does this spell the end of a union?

Not exactly.

In “Joys and Woes of Marriage in India” by Hemalatha Gnanasekar, you get to see a refreshingly different, lesser-known side of marriage.

In this insightful book, readers will:

  • Immerse yourself in 20 short stories about love and marriage across the spectrum

  • Grasp what it means to be in love, and what all that it takes to maintain it

  • Enjoy profound and funny stories that shine a light on people who have suffered in darkness

  • Get to know the modern Indian woman — independent, intelligent, and determined

And so much more!

Literature that resonates with its readers serves as a window to the soul. When you read these heartfelt stories, perhaps you’ll see your life reflected back to you.

In Gnanasekar’s beautifully crafted words, you will look at love and understand it… more than you ever dreamed possible.
