    Meera and JAK, people who lives very different lives, find that coincidences have brought their lives together. As time goes, everything that seemed to be going bad is given life to because of new beginnings. Lessons in Forgetting is a moving story about forgiveness and second chances.

    Summary of the Book

    Meera, a corporate wife and writer of cookbooks, lived a pretty normal life till her husband decided not to come home for good one day. She now has to look after her kids, her mother and grandmother all by herself. JAK, Professor J. A. Krishnamurthy, is a cyclone studies expert who returned to India from America very recently. He has a 19 year old daughter who suffers from the trauma of an incident that happened in the past. As a father, JAK is determined to find out what really happened and wants to help her. Soon, Meera and JAK find their lives becoming entwined and as the days pass, all they see are fresh beginnings.

    Slow & Mellow...just like wine!

    This is a 328-pages long book; very long as per my reading standard & capability but I still went ahead & started it on my mother's strong recommendation. It starts very slowly & too many characters confused me plus they weren't very clear to me in the beginning...the book gathers some pace by the middle and then it gets very intriguing & binding! The last 100-odd pages are real nice and made reading this book worthwhile for me!

    Awesome

    Another master piece from Anita Nair. If you are strong enough to realise life isn't as rosy as it looks and can get turbulent in a jiffy just like the sea, then you got to read Lessons In Forgetting. May be you would be able to look at the warnings and predict the cyclone and be better prepared if not prevent it.
