A Suitable Friend
You have heard this one before. You have probably even lived through it. The Suitable Boy is about the Indian mother’s greatest predicament: finding the perfect groom for her daughter. It’s set against the backdrop of a newborn nation in its formative years. A nation with a quivering voice and a pencil moustache. While a young woman searches for her suitable boy, a young nation finds its footing. Somewhere, it becomes the story of all our beginnings. Therefore a must-read. The Suitable Boy is an old friend of mine, and I hope even you find some solace in this friendship.
