Book Description HTML

As Roopa’s father couldn't help her become a doctor, she marries Sathyam. Hoping that he would help her cause he fails her, feeling used by him. She insensibly seeks lesbian solace in her friend Sandhya’s embrace. Later, losing her heart to Raja Rao, Sandhya’s husband, she finds herself in a dilemma of love, even as Sathyam’s friend Prasad woos her to distraction. Unfolding the compelling saga of Roopa’s love and loss, governed by the vicissitudes of life, this 'novel' endeavors to nuance man-woman chemistry on one hand, and portrays woman-woman empathy on the other. Who said the novel is dead? 'Benign Flame' raises the bar.
