About this book:
"It's all a matter of pure luck. The vageries of life are hard to predict. Look at you. Sukanya is the kind of woman that every man would love to marry. She has made you so happy, filled your life with the flowers of her love, made it a happy journey. Only a God-fearing man would be so lucky." Ron was shocked by Shashank's laughter, a laugh that had an undercurrent of unnamed sorrow. Ron looked at Shashank, perplexed. Finishing his drink Shashank placed his glass on a side table. His face was clouded with grief. Ron, who had seen the look in Shashank's face, asked, "Shashank, what is the problem? You look so sad. Does this have something to do with the reason you called me here?"
Shashank nodded slowly. "Something terrible has happened and I am totally shattered. I need to talk about it to someone and you are the only person I trust."
"What is it?"
"I have been betrayed by Sukanyaâ€¦"
