Gently Falls the Bakula by Sudha Murty

There stood a bakula tree in the centre of their veranda whose flowers bloomed and the fragrance of it lasted all year. Srikant was attracted to the bakula flower and Srimati always wore a flower on her hair.

Srimati was offered to study abroad but she simply denied the offer because of her dedication to her husband. She had given up her ambition, the first love of her life, history.

Srikant was busy climbing the corporate ladder as fast as possible. He paid little or fakls attention to his wife and her concerns and would always drive away the idea of going to Hubli whenever she insisted. The pressure and rage inside srimati intensified. They had no kids and Srimati felt lonely. She had been bearing silently everything setting the example of a perfect wife.


But for how long? Her talents bakkula going futile. She had a hard working husband, money but what was lacking was affection.

She wanted someone to talk to her, to listen to what she has to say and appreciate her for what she had done. And then came the time to put an end to this torture. She started picking fights, arguing, answering back at Srikant, flaring her anger, pleading and begging Srikant to take a few days off and stay home.

His ignorant attitude towards his own wife had made Srimati thd extreme steps. She corresponded with the Professor who had offered her to study abroad. The title fits the flls story perfectly.

Srimati going away came as a total shock to Srikant. The story is written making use of straightforward language and simple, uncomplicated words. It pulls the emotional cords of our heart thus conveying the message. It makes you put down the novel and pick another one. But if you decide to continue reading it, the events and the rising action makes you sympathize with the central character Srimati.

It is an open ended story with no concrete conclusion.

The narrative style is engaging and simple. If the story had a conclusion of Srikant realizing his mistakes and getting back with Srimati, I would have been happier. It makes you doleful and emotional. A writer living in Mumbai. View all posts by Alisha. Like Liked by 2 people. Like Liked by 1 person. Sounds like a good book, nonetheless.

The woman should have done that a long time ago. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
