Details about The Rules of Arrangement by Anisha Bhatia
The Rules of Arrangement by Anisha Bhatia ePub PDF free download – This Voice, from across the living room, is my aunt Sheila Bua. Pa’s oldest sister. Yesterday, to her acute horror, I turned an ancient twenty-six. I’m still unmarried, with no sign of a husband on the horizon. Which is like wading ankle deep into the Swamp of Eternal Spinsterhood. “Tell me, what is our plan of action?” Sheila Bua says, her hands on her hips. Her voice, on the other hand, can qualify as a whole annoying person in its own right. As if in agreement, a lone auto rickshaw sputters reluctantly two floors below in our tiny by-lane. It’s ten in the morning on a scorching Saturday, and in Bombay, nothing moves before noon on a weekend, not even the lethargic cuckoos in the mango trees. Nothing except Sheila Bua. “What do you mean, Sheila didi?” My Mum’s soft voice is like piano music after Sheila Bua’s squawk. “You know perfectly well, Geeta. It’s high time Zoya was married.” Sheila Bua struggles to wrench her feet out of her pearly flip-flops near the main door.” That’s all I can see of her, courtesy of my curly locks flowing over my face. This is far more romantic in theory than reality: gorgeous windswept hair versus coiled strands on your tongue. You might think I’m of the windswept hair variety. Nope. Coiled strands. Always.
