A Suitable Boy is Vikram Seth's epic love story set in India. Funny and tragic, with engaging, brilliantly observed characters, it is as close as you can get to Dickens for the twentieth century. The story unfolds through four middle class families: the Mehras, Kappoors, Khans, and Chatterjis. Lata Mehra, a university student, is under pressure from her mother to get married. But not to just anyone she happens to fall in love with.

The dramatised version is brilliant! The delivery is excellent, the voices almost fit the characters that conjure in the mind. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was very disappointed with the ending, though in hindsight I can see through and make sense of it. Special mention to people who've voiced Latha, Kabir, and Pran. Great work!
