Shrikant was restlee… Holding a bakula flower in his palm, he ws wondering why he ws fascinated by this tiny flower, that was neither as beautiful as a rose nor had the fragrance of a jasmine or a champaka. And yet, it was very special to him. It held an inexplicable attraction for him.' Shrimati and Shrikant are neighbours and star students of their school in the small north Krnataka town of Hubli. It leaves no one in surprise when they come first and second respectively in the final Bord exams. Soon Shrikant discovers he is strangely attracted to Shrimati, a plain-looking yet charming person, who always does better than him in the exams. Shrimati and the two get married. Shrikant joins an It company and starts rapidly climbing the corporate ladder. He works relentlessly and reaches the pinnacle of his industry, while Shrimati abandons her academic aspirations and becomes his uncomplaining shadow, silently fulfilling her duties as a corporate leader's wife. But one day, while talking to an old professor, she starts examining what she has done with her life and realizes it is dismally empty... Gently Falls the Bakula is the story of a marriage that loses its way as ambition and self-interest take their toll. Written nearly three decades ago, Sudha Murthy's first novel remains startlingly in its scrutiny of modern values and work ethics.
