    "BEAUTIFUL WOMAN'S Beautiful Books!!!"

    It is a book from "The 'most beautiful' woman because of her thoughts, actions, simplicity.......(list goes on)-- according to me". I had read "Wise and Otherwise", "The old man and his God", 'Mahashwetha" which definitely touch your heart. After reading every short stories in these books, many times I go too much emotional ending with few drops of tears in my eyes!!!This is my experience. I respect and love this author for her great service to the society. Hats off Madam!!!

    Simple yet touching

    As always, Sudha Murty treats her readers with great reading experience. The straight-from-heart narrating style coupled with subtle experiences make reading this book an enriching experience. I don't know about anyone else but reading her books have made me a better person!
    [P.S: Also read "Gently fell the Bakula", "Dollar Bahu"," Mahashweta", "Wise and Otherwise" and "The old man and his god"]

    Life stories told in a easy manner

    When I was reading the stories, I really felt most of these stories we would have come across, but I didn't get bored while reading, probably the way author put them. The stories made me think in a different perspective about various people that I met. Really nice to read good book. Now I am full-fledged fan of Sudha Murty.

    Simple writing with lots of life lessons

    This is one of my first sets of books that I bought online. I was little confused about the paper-back and hard cover which I understood after getting the paper back copy of this book. Packing was great and no damage or faults seen.
    Cheaper but quality book

    Good stories

    As with Smt. Sudha Murthy's books, this one is very good too! Simple language and very touching. Straight from the heart. Situations that we probably would never experience.

    Love the simplicity

    Its my first Sudha Murty book. I love the fact that its kept simple . Everyone comes across situations which leaves an impression and new lessons are learnt. Its a good collection, a good read, also takes very little time to finish.
    But the question I have is why give up drinking milk or why the title "The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk"

    Good book to read

    This is the 3rd book written by Madam i have read. The book reflects the practical world thru the eyes and experiences of Madam. I am nor sure how many would like that genere of writing where some stories have a cinematic, surprise ending. There are lot of good things to be imbibed from this book
