Sudha Murthy has excelled in the weaving and portrayal of interesting characters in the novel "Dollar Bahu". The novel revolves around a greedy lady Gouramma and of how her aspirations for the U.S dollar makes her get a glimpse of life in the U.S as compared to India.
Sudha concludes the novel saying that you must live life in the U.S without thinking about the benefits,uniqueness,culture of India, and vice versa. Otherwise, life in India or U.S may be filled with grief if you keep thinking "the other side is always greener".
After a very long time i found myself continously reading a novel without any break. Sudha has given lot of examples to illustrate the effect of the dollar and life in U.S. I just discovered(with my friend Google)that a TV serial has been made based on the novel "Dollar Bahu."
