Sarita Varma’s Girl from fatehpur is a short and sweet romantic novella which revolves around Sanjana (Sana), her childhood crush Rajan and her colleague Krish. The novel opens up with Sana returning back to her native land after few years of gap for her cousin’s wedding. Sana is a girl with very strong values and who upholds very high regards for her tradition. She has left behind Krish’s dramatic proposal and her life in Mumbai, just to be with her family and close friends. Thus begins the dramatic encounter of her with Rajan (her childhood crush).
It’s a warm delightful read with love, ego and clashes involved, (a quintessential Bollywood romance). This book is just 100 pages and I finished reading within few hours. Even though the plot was predictable, one would still want to read this short novella. I really liked the part where author has described Kumbh Mela so vividly. Writing is simple and easy to understand. Author has put a good effort in developing each characters and also described their emotions with ease. This book has a very happy ending which will leave you with warm thoughts in your mind. I recommend this novel for every chicklit lovers.
