If You Love Someone...Bestseller List

'The Hindu' in its Hyderabad edition carries a weekly bestseller list based on the AA Husain bookstore's report. This week's bestseller list was topped by 'If you love someone...' which is wonderful I hope it continues to remain on the list for many weeks to come.
The initial reactions to the novel have been good. But I must share what the National Book Trust, the organiser of the World Book Fair, has printed in its Newsletter.

Quotes from the book launch:

"We, particularly women, are brought up as per the expectations of our parents, not according to our wishes. While only a woman can realise her problems, understand the lives, conflicts and sacrifices of women, a cricketer and a management consultant writing a book on a woman's life is really an achievement.'
- Smt. Renuka Chowdhury, Former Minister Woman and Child Development

'The charactersisation of Meghna - beautiful, intelligent, complex, extremely attrative, yet instantly recognisable central character is the triumph in the novel."
- Prof. Anuradha Marwah, Delhi University
