** A Bad Character by Deepti Kapoor


The title says it all: A Bad Character is the  lover chosen by the heroine, very poorly chosen as all readers can readily grasp from their first encounter. The setting, Delhi, is exotic (for me, at least!), the writing gorgeous, but the story can’t rise from its banal, oft-repeated theme.
