This is the story of Anupama whose dream marriage to Arun falls apart when she finds a white patch on her foot and discovers he has leukoderma. Anupama who is abandoned by her uncaring in-laws and insensitive husband is forced to return to her father’s house in the village. The act of a married woman staying with her parents was considered as a disgrace to the society. Her step mother’s continual spiteful remarks and her exclusion from the society forced her to commit suicide. Determined to re construct her life against all odds, Anupama goes to Bombay and she finally finds success, respect and the promise of an enduring long lasting friendship.

I liked this story because it is a very inspirational story of courage and recovery from difficult situations in a world spoilt by illusions and betrayals. This story gives a hope to the people who who became victims of prejudices that govern society.

I liked Anupama’s character because she finds hope in her life and was very courageous and efficient rebuilding her life.
