Forbidden Desires by Madhuri Banerjee – Book Review

If there has to be a expert advice which many would mention will be ” Follow your dreams/Passion “. When desires and dreams differ in a small way ,there ought to be a difference which separates them. The strange things which you do is somewhat equal to what you desire. Unfinished dreams which we wish to accomplish in the mean time in your life forms the desires.

There were days when women were denied the rights to everything. Slowly that denial of rights have been revoked in every places. Even they were denied the right to vote in some countries , but time changes and so the thoughts. Women , nowadays are independent and wish to follow their dreams and desires according to their own ways.

Forbidden Desires enthrals us with it’s story line which revolves primarily around four characters Naina , Ayesha , Kavitha and Kaajal. These women have set aside their dreams for marriage and lead a life which they don’t like as time extends. They don’t even know who the others are. Whether they have to bear all these things which they don’t like ?When everyone get to know that they have been cheated or forced to live in a way which they never thought, they decide to leave their families and marriage relationships and set to follow their dreams & desires.

The author excels in describing the characters in a disparate way. She took the story in a way in which different characters faces the relatively same type of  problems. Their resemblance adds strength to the storyline. Their marriages are at stake and each one desires to accomplish their desire.

The author had made a point where each woman has to take a decision in their life and not a decision which is biased towards others. The author also emphasise that the old customs which bind the women to their family are no longer prevalent in this modern day society.

The story is simple and the language too giving the readers the comfort to read. If you are a book worm who would like to have many twists and turns in the book that you read, this book fulfils your wish. Apart from that the book is women centric and speaks about the issues with the relationships and marriages.

A short read and there is a story which is said to the world through a different perspective. So do give a read.
