2 States : The Story Of My Marriage (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.81

Loosely based on his real life, 2 States: The Story Of My Marriage charts the love story between a Tamil Brahmin girl and a Punjabi boy who find their relationship jeopardized by this very ethnic disconnect.

Summary Of The Book

Krish Malhotra meets Ananya Swaminathan at IIM Ahmedabad where they are both pursuing an M.B.A. Ananya’s charm and good looks bring her to the fore of the popularity chart at the Institute and although Krish finds her very appealing, this reputation makes him wary of her. Ananya enlists Krish’s help who is an IIT graduate and the duo began their friendship. Soon this friendship blossoms into love and the pair become inseparable.

The real story begins in their last year at the Institute when having moved past all of the other person’s idiosyncrasies, the two are resolved to tie their love through the bond of marriage. However, they aren’t the only ones involved in this decision and although they are in love, there is the question of their families. With the parents not accepting their love, Ananya is sent off to meet Tamil Brahmin boys while Krish is sent off to meet respectable Punjabi girls. However, Krish cannot forget Ananya and is the same with her and he embarks on a quest to win over her family to finally marry her.

Through a number of amusing and misfortunate clashes, the families disapprove of this union due to their cultural and ethnic differences. The magic that is Bhagat’s gift in storytelling is his use of humor and candor and he employs these devices to full use in this story where the North-South polarities provide generous comedic effect. Narrated from Krish’s point of view, a first person narrative, 2 States: The Story Of My Marriage is an infectiously lighthearted read that digs at the ethnic gap between Indian communities. The rights of the book have been sold to producer Nadiadwala who is adapting the warm tale for the big screen.

In the country like India where love story is the best amusement being provided by yashraj films, Chetan sir also served the same & he has got a new idea to unite the nation.the book has got a well description of heroine girl daring to change the system & she did.Being prurient i had savored every line from chetan g's kiss to their coitus.in this book one can get chance to explore the dishes of kerala. i wonder if i may get such a gorgeous lady.............
well what i m writing today in english is the gift of this book.
but.but .............i m still in confusion how author's grumpy father suddenly changed into a loving papa!
and my advice if u r still reading it ...."must buy for who is in love or who was in love because it will show you the way to turn your lovemaking into your official honeymoon!!!!!!

A very good book, no strings attached

Well, i had heard good things about this book and that is when i finally decided to buy it
It started a bit slow and i was always trying to mentally compare it to "5 point someone" so i was initially a little disappointed but Boy, did i know what was coming up next, as chapters passed i got so much into the storyline that i did not even have track of time and read the book through the night to finish it
The key points that i liked is

2. A potent mixture of humor and satire made on the cultures and the practices being followed in each state
3. The chemistry between the lead characters
4. And the surprise element, some cross reference to his character in his first book, felt like a sequel and it felt good

This is highly recommended from my side and please dont try and compare it to any classics, try reading it with a clean slate and you will have a smile on your face by the time you are done with this book

Happy Reading

MUST READ FOR LOVERS...

I am a real diehard fan of ChetanBhagat. He is my favorite writer. His books are my favorite.. "2states" the most favorite of them all..

2States is one of the best love stories I have ever heard or read about. A real transpiring love story.. I read the book in one nonstop sitting. Completed reading it for the eighth time now and I've never got bored reading it..

The book is an eye opener for young minds.For someone who thought the journey from start of 'true love' towards tying the knot was easy,the first three quarters of the book will frighten you.It depends on the way you s...

The book is an eye opener for young minds.For someone who thought the journey from start of 'true love' towards tying the knot was easy,the first three quarters of the book will frighten you.It depends on the way you see it though….Last time I checked the novel has a happy ending so it should be fine guys..

Favorite line from the book;
“Pretty girls behave best when you ignore them. Of course, they have to know you are ignoring them, for otherwise they may not even know you exist.”

NOTE: The book is a really inspiring one.. Girls who are a bit shy and who think they will never fall in love with someone of the other caste or religion, may be fearing from some really strong resistance from their families (ie. every typical Indian girl) should not read this book.. They might get encouraged and may even fall in love!! I've got a second hand experience.. :D

Bittersweet

The reason this book is interesting is because it has characters one can so easily relate to that you won't be surprised if one of them seems to be the not so distant cousin of your next door neighbour or irritating relative.
As for flipkart's service.... awesome is the best word.
