Book Review-Under the Mango Tree

  Book Review Under the Mango Tree -Fiction  Author: Bina Pillai Format: Kindle Edition  The image was taken from Amazon.com.  Under the Mango Tree, Pillai's novel handles a bitter-sweet, woman-centred, family saga theme.  Amazon blurb starts—"Diya Nair is eighteen, a diligent student, hopelessly in love with Aditya. Married against her wishes to Rajagopal, ten years older than her, Diya is exposed to an orthodox family where they follow archaic customs that are alien to her modern upbringing. "   The story opens with Diya getting ready broken-heartedly in her custom riddled ancestral home for marriage. Litle expectations about her bridegroom brighten her. Her mind invokes candid memory of Aditya—her love.  They together had woven dreams to live to bring fruition to their passion.  But it is not he that she is getting ready to marry.  Rajagopal is her bridegroom, ten years older than her. Her parents chose him in an arranged marriage, forcing her to drop her studies.  &qu
