Nirmala and Normala is a novel written by Sowmya Rajendran and Niveditha Subramaniam.
Summary of the Book
This is the story of a pair of twins called Nirmala and Normala who are separated at birth. As they grow up, one of them goes on to become a heroine and the other, a normal person. The authors wittily explain why the concept of being ‘normal’ is emphasized the way it is in this book. They also claim that we are all familiar with Normala. But if you are struggling to understand why on earth the heroine would play with street children in a movie and/or why she comes across as so silly in spite of being a Harvard graduate, this book might just help you find the answers.
