Book Description
A partly Biographical tale from Chetan Bhagat, the book is about how Punjabi boy and a Tamil Girl meet each other in IIM-A, fall in love and decide to marry each other but the problems arise when on the convocation day their parents meet and due to cultural differences their marriage is called off. What ensues is a combination of love and humour laced with small tragedies in between. Soon to be adapted on screen by the same name the book takes subtle jibes at the cultural differences in India and specially the two cultural backgrounds to which the boy and the girl belong.
About the Author
Chetan Bhagat is the author of best-selling novels like Five Point Ssomeone and 3 Mistakes of my Life amongst others. He is regarded as "the biggest selling English language novelist in India's history" by The New York Times and all but one of his books have been adapted on screen and proved to be blockbusters. He is a graduate from IIT-D and completed his education from IIM-A, and hence is well connected to the problems most of today’s generation face and has a huge connect with the youth of India. Apart from being a bestselling Author, he is also a sought after speaker and his columns appear regularly in The Hindustan Times.

    Its really an superb book by Mr.Chetan Bhagat,
    I am found of reading books and really I enjoyed a lot by reading this book.
    This would be very best choice for fiction lovers..

    I'd somewhat criticized Chetan's earlier book (The 3 mistakes of my life) due to certain factual conflicts, but have no complaints on the latest one. It made an interesting read through out.

    By now you must be knowing the story line. Its about 2 IIM-A students meeting at the beginning of the course, falling in love, deciding to get married, trying to convince and win approval of their parents and in-laws. Gives an excellent insight of cultural differences between two states (Punjab and TamilNadu) and parental mindsets and considerations while considering a bride/groom. Let me not reveal more as the story is best enjoyed by reading the book.

    Sharing a few observations about the book:
    Chetan has taken lots of liberty to reveal inside secrets of his former employer, Citibank. The details as to how badly he wanted the citibank job (as it paid the highest), how he carefully lied in his selection interview, his first day at work when he recommended a customer to invest in internet stocks, blindly trusting research reports published by another equally incompetent fresher and other matters internal to office.

    Its a open secret how people go after highest paying jobs and how companies treat fresh recruits. Nothing official about it, but when putting the same in something as official as a book, authors usually use pseudo names to hide real identity of a company/person.(or at least add a disclaimer) But Chetan has mentioned Citibank's name directly, without any hesitation. We can brush it aside as a fiction, but incidents mentioned are very close to reality and if a potential HNI reads this book and finds out how fresh out of college students with half baked knowledge mismanage his/her money, he/she is sure to think twice next time. May be Chetan has taken necessary permission, or may be no one felt such disclosures could be bad for Citi's image. Fortunately for Citibank, I'm sure most of its priority banking customers will be too busy to read " " to get an idea who is managing their money and how. (John Grisham's "The Associate" explains how lawfirms exploit lawschool graduates)

    Chetan also mentioned how his job was misused-to get Ananya's mom on stage, to get free stay at Goa hotel, promising that he'll get Citibank to do its annual conference there and so on. All these might be purely imaginary, but since such things happen in real life every day and since Chetan was working with Citibank till 2009 (he quit to become full time writer, just as Krish in his book wanted to) these things appear more as a confession than fiction

    There's also no mention of any induction program or training-he was asked to supervise a team right on his day 1. Sounds a little odd

    That apart, Chetan's books also give a feeling that there's nothing great about IITs and IIMs. The blind faith most of us have about IIT and IIMs are likely to be shaken a little, if we take Chetan's description of IIT/IIM life in his books for real.

    Will it be a safe bet to guess that his next book will have number 4 in it? He's already done with 1 (1 night @ call centre), 2 (2-states), 3 (The 3 mistakes of my life) and 5 (5 point someone)

    I liked this particular line, which gives a clear illustration of cultural shock and differences-When Krish visits Ananya's house in Mylapore Chennai, a banana leaf was laid in front of them, to be served food on. "For a moment I wondered if I should eat it or wipe my hands with it-then Ananya said that this is the plate"

    Krish's Dad stepping in last moment (more details removed from this review) was a surprise element for me in the book, else the story took the normal expected course.

    Rest of the aspects are best enjoyed by reading the book itself. In brief its all about Krish and Ananya's attempts to open up the closed mindset their parents had- that a bride/groom of a different community/state is not even worth considering.

    If you've read it share your thoughts please.
