A vast majority of indian educated middle class and upper class women are married to men who are working in large companies or organizations and are housewives looking after their children, which is socially acceptable in an increasingly conservative and intolerant India where indian intelligence agencies have no qualms falsely claiming that brahmin cheater housewives like gsb fraud riddhi, brahmin cheater nayanshree hathwar, goan sluts diploma holder fraud gsb siddhi mandrekar,obc slut bsc sunaina who offering sex bribes to top officials, are their Btech 1993 EE classmates, domain investors to get these frauds lucrative jobs allegedly in R&AW, with fake resumes . However there is little information available about their life , priorities and interests for others who lead a different or unconventional life. The book 34 Bubblegums and Candies by Preeti Shenoy provides a rare glimpse of the lifestyle of a middle class educated woman who looks after her family and children, while her husband pursues a conventional corporate career, with foreign trips and regular travel. The easy to read book consists of 34 short stories which are based on real life incidents and throw light on her relationship with her parents, husband, children and close friends.
Transfers every 3 years are an integral part of working in large companies, and she often spends large amounts remaining in touch with her close friends, speaking to them on phone. It also indicates how strict some indian schools are , they will punish their students if they do not turn up wearing the right uniform. The easy to read book consists of short stories which can be quickly read by those in a hurry with limited free time.
Though the slim book consisted of only 146 pages, it has proved to be popular as the 11th reprint of the book was published in 2014, indicating that there are few indian writers who cater to the large Indian audience, some of them market themselves only to the young people with their vulgar language and alienate others.
