Lovely story-line, depicts the exact feeling of any female facing discontentment in married life despite a love marriage!

There are so much similarity in all these characters of different novels, starting from the location of the novels i. The story-line us Yet another Sudha Murthy Forte! The story-line usually takes us to the peak of emotions totally sunk in the oceans of reality where even a hard hearted person wud shed tears! RAtnamma's character is worth noticing because of which Mridula cud make a decision to move out and lead an independent life! Only difference in this novel was tat, there was a happy ending!
Worth a read.. Apr 25, Privy Trifles rated it liked it Shelves: I really like her easy going style of writing. She makes an instant connect with the reader moreover her stories are so slice of life that you are bound to find similarities.
Even in this one I enjoyed it but I had a small issue with the multiple plots she tried bringing in the novel which at times left me confused. The main plot itself was too strong to need any further sub plots, also at some places typos were a huge disappointment for it broke the flow of a reader. Overall a decent read, one t I really like her easy going style of writing.
Overall a decent read, one that haunted me after I read it for sadly the story is still relevant in today's times , was relevant 40 years ago and might still be relevant in future too.
The ugly facet of our country exposed very beautifully. I loved the ending, she had me there. May 20, Pari rated it really liked it.
I personally loved the ending, and whole the book! It helped me go through waiting in a Govt office: D On more serious terms, this book was more complex than Mahashwetha or Dollar Bahu. It involved so many different characters that I often had to turn back my pages just to see who it was. And all those extra characters seemed dull. It seemed to be fast forwarded movie while I was reading.

I taught me to value relationships more than money, and so many little things that we always find in Sudha Murthy's books. She has a clear idea of her concepts and somewhere, I felt it lacked as I start procrastinating if it's boring for me.
But, as always, she was brilliant. Sometime I wonder if Mridula was actually her 0. I dunno. Mridula is the daughter of Bheemanna and Rukuma Bai. They live in Aladahalli in North Karnataka.
She is a kind hearted and simple girl and has enormous enthusiasm for life and unlimited energy for reading, cooking and sketching and wants to spend every moment of the day fruitfully. Even though she scores a rank in the tenth class, she wants to be a teacher and joins the local gover A book by Sudha Murthy, a story set in North Karnataka somewhere near Hubli is how the book, House of Cards, starts.
Even though she scores a rank in the tenth class, she wants to be a teacher and joins the local government school. She has an older brother, Krishna.
He is a very sincere doctor like his father who was a medical practitioner. He wants to be a gynaecologist. For Ratnamma, money has more value than thing and for Lakshmi and Shankar, spending is more important than saving. Sanjay meets Mridula at a marriage in Hubli, then again in Bombay and proposes marriage to her.
They get married and move to Bangalore: After getting frustrated in a Government job, Sanjay moves into private practice. Though, Sanjay and Mridula move up in their socioeconomic status in the twenty five years of married life, they drift away from each other. A very well written book. At times I felt that every woman becomes a Mridula sometime in her lifetime.
Mar 29, Swetha rated it it was ok. I found this book when i was browsing through my cousins collection and decided to give it a read. This book is about a small village girl Mridula, from the state of Karnataka who lived in the moment and enjoyed life every single day. She falls in love and gets married to a guy named Sanjay, and supports him fully in everything he did without compromising what she wanted in life.
But there comes a moment in life when money comes into play and then so does greed. This story tells us about what she I found this book when i was browsing through my cousins collection and decided to give it a read. This story tells us about what she goes through when her family challenges her beliefs as well as what greed does to a person which in turn affects a marriage.
Sudha takes a very relevant topic and through this story really conveys what really happens in a household. It starts really good with a strong story line and the writing style is pretty easy to understand.
The characters had a strong base and were well developed but as the story continued the characters become shallow. To me Sudha lost the plot mid way when various characters and sub-plots were introduced which weren't really relevant. Along with this, the time line changed too frequently without completing the previous one, which actually irked me.
The ending was really sweet though and overall would say that it was a decent read. Mar 01, Priya Kulkarni rated it really liked it. House of cards is very ordinary and thought provoking reading. Mridula is calm and center character of this novel. Sudha Murthy has made it a point for all the men in this book through Mridula that man is incomplete without woman.
The only thing I went on searching for in this book was, literary way of narrating the story. It could have been more artistic also.
Over all I liked the book and give it a four stars. Sudha Murt House of cards is very ordinary and thought provoking reading. Sudha Murthy is always simple and real. I like her small topics which influence the society in long run. Aug 17, Sruthi Menon rated it it was amazing Shelves: First time a happy ending in sudha murthy's book. I loved it. At the end of the day I am a normal girl who wants to see couple living happily ever after.
Though her books always carve strong women statues they end up having a husbands with a villain head. This book is different when it comes to that. Oct 23, Teenu Vijayan rated it really liked it. House of Cards is a book that deals with this issue. It's about a couple who despite being hardworking and honest find themselves in not so great and luxurious lifestyle.
Though the wife, Mridula, never changes even when she moves to a big city like Bangalore, it's her husband Sanjay who kind of falls of track. His professional pressure gets to him and he reaches a point where they both wouldn't have imagined to find themselves in.
This book really tries to capture how life changes people, their House of Cards is a book that deals with this issue. This book really tries to capture how life changes people, their integrity, their point of view and how the fast moving life has changed our lives forever. Nov 24, Mahima rated it really liked it. House of Cards, as the name suggests is about the home - family ties and the balance needed to keep these ties healthy.
We are taken into the life of Mridula, from her early years as a simple village girl in Aladahalli, and we journey with her through the years from her marriage, to motherhood and down to 25 years after her wedding. Her husband Sanjay, as a young man was a hard working honest man from a lower background.
He remained so for a few years after their wedding. However time and circum House of Cards, as the name suggests is about the home - family ties and the balance needed to keep these ties healthy. However time and circumstances changed his value systems. He became a shrewd businessman, a huge change from his earlier self - an honest and philanthropic doctor.
Money started pouring in and changed him further, making him egoistic, a stark contrast to his hitherto humble self.
Mridula however remained the same down to earth, helpful, compassionate and warm person that she was brought up to be. She did not restrict her social circle to more affluent segments. She didnt forget old friends. She couldnt understand how her husband had changed so much over the years.
Sanjay also proves to be a dominating and disrespectful husbands and doesnt allow Mridula any real role even in parenting their only son Sishir. Sudha Murty has put across the story in a very simple and effective way. Nothing is over dramatised. Things are put across subtley and beautifully. The story also touches upon subjects like corruption and partiality of the system towards people with contacts. It exposes the dillemma and the difficulty of the masses who want to work hard and just dont get the fruits of their labour, purely because they dont know the right people.
Its a simple and quick read. I would recommend it to everyone. Sudha Murthy's writings express human feelings and moral values in a simple words make me a great fan of her writings. Mridula a young bright and beautiful woman from Aladahalli village in Karnataka meet a honest doctor Sanjay. Soon both of them fall in love and don't care about the money and their life going smoothly with their government jobs. Although Sanjay doing his work very sincerely and honestly, his colleagues and senior steal the credit of him.
After a many frustration from the power o Sudha Murthy's writings express human feelings and moral values in a simple words make me a great fan of her writings. After a many frustration from the power of money and politics, Sanjay quit the government job and start a p private nursing home.
Money brings a lot of difference in his life style and behavior. But Mridula is still a same simple woman. How money affect the human behaviors and the relation between the wife and husband is the rest of the story. The story is moving slowly but it says a great message to run a happy life in simple words Mar 29, Priti rated it liked it.

House of Cards by Sudha Murthy is a beautiful story. Mridula, a village girl from Aladahalli gets married to a doctor in Mumbai and both of them start their life in Bangalore in a simple way. Sanjay, her husband establishes his clinic and in due course becomes corrupt.
Mridula does not change.
