The novel carries no extraordinary or very interesting story but the two simple outlines of how two love birds married in the mid of their academic session , seeking solace to live life with comfort and the bonding between two women who find a breathing space in the form of sisterhood who come together in their professional world.
As the title suggests the novel reflects the two vague women Sharmila Chatterjee aka mil, ages 22 and Indrani sen in her fifties. The book portraits a perfect companionship where the two complements each other. The age of Indrani sometimes nodded down its head in front of the confidence and boldness of mil where as the mother like indrani never forgot to support mil in her low time and to console her with experienced guidance. Apart from these two women characters, one character that is worth to mention is Abhimanyu, mil's husband. The balanced, idealistic, caring romantic guy is the gem of the novel, whose character portrayal will definitely win the heart of the readers.
