    An interesting read!!

    This is about three Bengali sisters who grew up in Calcutta and eventually end up in three different corners of the globe leading three different lifestyles! One lives a comfortable life in a posh residential locality in Mumbai keeping herself busy with household chores. Another of the sisters ends up New Jersey among the elite class of migrant Indians. The third ends up in the West in California leading a more pedestrian life after getting a divorce from herbusiness tycoon husband. It's an interesting tale about how life puts us in different circumstances we hardly imagined ourselves in and how each one of us overcomes the challenges that life poses us.

    A mixture of traditional and modern cultural values

    This book served as a good representation of the culture that origiantes from the Indian sub-continent. The life story of Tara in America pointed out the differences between the two cultures(American and South Asian). This character lived in America but was still tied to her family, her culture, and its values. She was able to get through her struggles in life with the help and guidance of her family members. There was often a cultural clash that took place when it came to seeing things from an Indian point of view and an American point of view. Tara made fun of her people and their ways throughout the book but at the end, she turned back to her culture and its values.

    One of the greatest works of literature

    Desirable Daughters was a great book based on cultural and moral values that origianted from the Indian sub-continent. A very touching and sensational story.
