Now, this will not go to the Trash can!

After having shared with you my familiarity with books-that-you-start-to-hate-once-you-read experiences, I must talk about this. Something that has come to my relief after a long wait. This book is called ‘The Hindi Bindi Club’.Caught a glimpse of it on http://www.curledup.com/. The synopsis was catchy and that lured me to read it. Well, I never had to regret, really. All about the relation between mothers and daughters, migrated to the US from India who are confused, torn apart between cultures yet prudent about themselves. A cache of some very warm conversations, thoughts and yes some scrumptious Indian recipes. Now, I am not gonna deny completely on the point that it is a girly book. It is in its own way. It however stands out in the way the strength of characters are projected. A good Tea Time read !
