    Description
    In a land where skin colour can determine one's destiny, fraternal twins PULLAMMA and LATA are about to embark on a journey that will tear their lives apart. Dark skinned Pullamma dreams of being a wife. With three girls in her family, the sixteen year old is aware there isn't enough dowry to secure suitable husbands for them all. But a girl can hope. She's well versed in cooking, pickle making, cow washing -- you name it. She's also obliged her old-fashioned grandmother by not doing well in school. Fair skinned and pretty, her twin sister Lata would rather study medicine than get married. Unable to grasp the depth of Lata's desire, the twins' Grandmother formalizes a wedding alliance for the girl. Distraught, Lata rebels, with devastating consequences. As Pullamma helps ready the house for her older sister Malli's bride viewing, she prays for a positive outcome to the event. What happens next is so inconceivable that it will shape Pullamma's future in ways she couldn't have foreseen. TELL A THOUSAND LIES is a sometimes wry, sometimes sad, but ultimately realistic look at how superstition and the colour of a girl's skin rules India's hinterlands.

    Review- Tell a Thousand Lies

    Here the character of the story is a girl who is sixteen years old and she lives with her grandmother. The life of the girl changes when a politician takes decisions on behalf of her and then life changes. Most probably the character which we see in the book is really correct in current social situations. Here the values like courage, love and determination is shown by the girl. The relationships of rural life are also ...

    Good read

    Very touching rendition of a woman's simple expectations of life and how they can be left unfulfilled. The book is very fast paced and keeps you guessing. Enjoyed it very much.

Shortlisted for the Tibor South Asia Prize, 2012 and written by first time author Rasana Atreya, you find you’re gripped, at least I was, I read the book in one stretch.
    The book centres around Pullamma, a naïve, innocent girl growing up in a village with her two sisters, brought up by their grandmother. The...
