Book Review: Cupid @Corporate

Author: Meenakshi M Singh

The story is a light-hearted romance set in 2005 in the corporate world when social media pressures were barely present. Those were the days when one’s personal life could stay hidden beneath the veneer of job titles and workaholism.

The story belongs to the female protagonist Suhaani Seth through and through. Brought up amidst middle-class values, Suhaani has always felt like a cog in the wheel in her household, since she wasn’t the proverbial male heir the family yearned for. She craved freedom figuratively and literally. And her jobs were the stepping stone for the same.

She fell in love at the workplace but her heart was trampled upon in the guise of adhering to archaic traditions. She found it difficult to cope and wondered if happily ever afters were not for her or if she was expected to be the demure damsel to mould into some elite household cast, to cater to the needs of a man-child and his family.

But life took a turn when she crossed paths with her senior, Siddharth and before she knew they fell in love and hard. However, its said, that life isn’t a bed of roses and that’s exactly what transpired in their love journey that culminated in a dream wedding.

Whatever happens next, promises to bring the reader a smile.

A breezy read, perfect over unending cups of tea over the weekend!
