The Marriage Bureau for Rich People

Author(s): Farahad Zama

General Fiction

What does somebody with a wealth of common sense do if retirement palls? Why, open a marriage bureau of course. And soon Mr Ali, from beautiful Vizag, sees his new business flourish as the indomitable Mrs Ali and assistant Aruna look on with careful eyes. But although many clients go away happy, problems lurk behind the scenes as Aruna nurses a heart-rending secret while Mr Ali cannot see that he rarely follows his own sage advice dished out so freely to others. And when love comes calling for Aruna, an impossible dilemma looms...A colourful coastal town proves the perfect backdrop for a splendid array of characters in this witty yet acutely observed debut novel. Indeed The Marriage Bureau for Rich People is just what Jane Austen might have written if she had ever been lucky enough to set foot in a contemporary Indian marriage bureau
