அனிதாவின் காதல்கள்Anitavin Kaadhalagal, which translates into Anita's affairs, may sound lurid initially but once you complete it you find the title wholly misleading. Written by Sujatha, it portrays the love story of a simple vulnerable, young girl who has been used to tranquil and calm living style. When she happens to meet the man who sweeps the ground off her feet with love the world around her changes but she couldn't. By the time she could adjust herself to that hectic pace, a rough wave topples her life and she is left stranded. Meanwhile she comes across four young men who are desperate to get her and their proposals.

Anitha is a Brahmin girl next door contended with her simple life style, crush on Salman Khan, icecream parlors and group study in her friend Madhu's room. Her life changes when she accidentally meets Vairavan, a leading young industrialist, who manages to charm her orthodox parents and gets he married in a jiffy. The following sequences are like dream come true and it comes to a screeching halt when her husband was arrested in a scam. Meanwhile three more guys propose her and finally Anita decides to take the life on her own.

{mosimage}Strength of Sujatha is his style of writing will be stark, not sugar coated or biased. The entire novel is from Anitha's point of view, thus highlighting the feminine sensitiveness. Anitha being a simple girl is not carried away by the romantic advancements being made by Vairavan. Infact, before she realises what had stuck her, the marriage is finished. Since we travel with Anitha, we explore the lighter vein college life of a simple girl and her reactions unable to cope up with the sudden marriage in her life. You could sympathise that even before she is fully drawn into the fact that she is married, a hurricane sweeps her happiness and she is let free again, making life a turmoil for her.

Coming to the famed title Anitha was being loved by Suresh, a software engineer, who comes through proper channel. Next is by Vairavan who manages to marry her, even though he was of lower caste, just because he makes right moves with money and charms her parents. Then comes her relative Sitaraman, for whom Anitha is the sole inspiration to move up in the hierarchical ladder by appearing for competitive exams. Last comes Vishwanathan, an aspiring musician and friend of Sitaraman, who feels that Anita was not given proper freedom. All come at different stages of Anitha's troubles and also within a month.

Through out the novel, Anita comes as a meek and submissive young girl who couldn't vent out her feelings and sometimes you get irritated why this girl doesn't be affirmative atleast with her marriage. But the way Sujatha had written it overrides this and makes you to look forward what will happen next. This is the beauty of this novel, which travels in the predictable path towards the climax. Especially the romantic episodes through which Vairavan expresses and proposes Anitha are interesting. His ordeals and the circumstances under which he decides to set Anitha free are equally interesting, making this reading a delight. When the same Vairavan sees a ray of hope, he pleads Anitha to be back in her life is just exciting.

As usual Sujatha takes up a real issue as a backdrop and builds a story around it. Here it happens to be the stock market, share trading and its scams. He elucidates the thin line between the legal trading and bulling, how sometimes the victims can be really legal through the arrest of Vairavan and its impact on the victims social life. The grand wedding reception of Vairavan and the unattended burial of his father are well said. Coming to the marriage, Anitha's expression of being a lost babe in the wood of VIPs was nice.

May be Sujatha thought of giving some wild justifications to the titillating title, he starts the novel with the description of her sisters' husbands, how they joke everything with hidden sexual innuendoes, making you believe that they will be a part of Anitha's affairs. But nothing happens so. As said, the novel didn't violate from traditional values, but takes a dig at the ever changing materialistic Brahmin attitude who are always ready to bend the traditions according to their conveniences. When realising that Vairavan is a multi millionaire, caste didn't come in between, when Vairavan was arrested they conveniently take up the caste issue and tries to get her married to Sitaraman, supporting with the instances of remarriages.

Overall, this novel offers nothing new except the Share scams, but its racy narrative makes it worth reading.
