House of Cards is the story of Mridula, a bright young woman with enormous enthusiasm for life who hails from a Karnataka village. A chance meeting with Sanjay, a talented but impoverished doctor, leads to love and the couple marry and settle in Bangalore. The more Mridula sees of the world, the more she realizes how selfish and materialistic people can be, but she does not take the ups and downs of life to heart and lives each day with positive energy. Trouble brews when Sanjay quits his government job and starts an immensely successful private practice. With affluence comes the never ending ambition for more and the inevitable slide into corrupt practices. For a long time, Mridula has no idea that Sanjay has sold his soul. When the truth hits her, she has no recourse but to walk out on him, but can she really find a space of her own? This intricately woven novel explores human relationships in telling detail and holds up a mirror to our society with candour and with conviction. 


Amazing book and highly recommended. The protagonist of House of Cards is Mridula, a brilliant young woman from a Karnataka village who exudes tremendous energy for life. After a chance encounter with Sanjay, a gifted but struggling doctor, the two fall in love, get hitched, and move to Bangalore. Mridula is becoming more aware of how materialistic and egotistical people can be as she travels the world, but she does not let this realisation affect how positively she approaches each day. When Sanjay leaves his government position and launches an incredibly prosperous private practise, trouble begins to develop. With wealth comes the constant need for more and the unavoidable descent into unethical behaviour. Mridula has been unaware that Sanjay has sold for a very long period.
