2 States: The Story of My Marriage - Chetan Bhagat

Love marriages around the world are simple:

Boy loves girl. Girl loves boy.
They get married.
In India, there are a few more steps:
Boy loves Girl. Girl loves Boy.
Girl's family has to love boy. Boy's family has to love girl.
Girl's Family has to love Boy's Family. Boy's family has to love girl's family.
Girl and Boy still love each other. They get married.

Welcome to 2 States, a story about Krish and Ananya. They are from two different states of India, deeply in love and want to get married. Of course, their parents don’t agree. To convert their love story into a love marriage, the couple have a tough battle in front of them. For it is easy to fight and rebel, but it is much harder to convince. Will they make it? From the author of blockbusters Five Point Someone, One Night @ the Call Center and The 3 Mistakes of My Life, comes another witty tale about inter-community marriages in modern India.

Chetan Bhagat


The best from Chetan Bhagat so far.Finished the book in just one - go.So beautifully written and the characters of Krish and Ananya are well brought out.Chetan's claim that its his trus story has only helped to increase the market - value of the book.The diverse culture and people of different states in India  are great to read.Krish's experience in Chennai would have been a super - hit scene if it is taken right out of the book and placed in a Bollywood movie.So humour filled are these incidents that you almost laugh out every few seconds. This book is a light, quick, fun read and is certainly infinitely better than Three Mistakes of My Life.

Bollywood masala is oozing in every page.Krish, a Punjabi and Ananya, a Tamilian fall in love with each other.Their romance makes readers wish they love someone so deeply and truly like them.The numerous hurdles they face and their strong will to overcome them and marry each other forms the core of the story.Once again Chetan's easy style makes for an easy - read and you do not need to have a dictionary by your side.

Chetan could have omitted the unnecessary taboo words used all over the book.

Overall -  "Welcome to the world of Indian Marriage System".

Rating: 3.2/5
