Part II, Gunasundari’s Household, details the complex dynamics of a Hindu joint family. Gunasundari and Vidya Chatura, Minister of Ratnanagari, were married as children. Intelligent and eager, Gunasundari learns from her husband to share his pleasures of literature, poetry, philosophy. But this blissful aesthetic conjugality is disrupted when his relatives come to live with them. She must suddenly manage a household of fourteen individuals, each with different needs and idiosyncrasies. Govardhanram’s acute, often delightfully wry observations on human nature, household dynamics, his sharp characterisation and descriptions of a pregnant Gunasundari struggling to keep the family ‘joint’ and content are perceptive and thought-provoking.
