2 States: The Story of My Marriage (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 99

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.

2 States (Book) - Chetan Bhagat

The book and the story: As the top of the cover itself says “2 States – The story of my marriage” – you can imagine what it’s all about. I still have no idea about him and his life yet but but I can tell you one thing about him after reading this book that I guess this is his own life story and I am sure Chetan Bhagat is one hopelessly romantic guy, who is madly in love with his wife – so much so that he just can’t stop bragging about her and this book is nothing but the same story told in a typical filmy way but it’s simply amazing. People who have read the book especially the guys and thos

the book which got me footing in the world of english

well..........'jab kuch achha lagta hai to vo mushkil hoke bhi asaan ho jaata hai!'
bought this novel from a flee market with purpose of learning english as advised by someone and to my amazement i found it intriguing me to read further.
as i was a beginner so it took me 1 month to go through it.for me it was a wonderful experience to learn as well as delight.
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 c

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
1. Simple and lively language
2. A potent mixture of humor and satire made on the cultures and the practices being followed in each state
3. The chemistry between

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 see it though…

Well thaught title

2 States is an appropriate title given to this book. The book is all about 2 people who are from different states, who are in love with each other and wants to get married. As they are from different states their parents did not approve for their marriage. Krish and Ananya decides (name of the characters) to convince each others parents for their marriage. The story revolves around how orthodox people are there in India who do not allow people from 2 different castes to get married. After an year long drama both manages to convince their parents for their marriage. Over all an amazing novel to

The worst novel I ever read.

I don't know why the crappy writers are downgrading the standard of literary world. Chetan Bhagat's books are as cheap their prices. A high school student can write better prose than him.

A witty text

This is the first text I ever ordered from Flipkart. The service was great and so was the product.

As war as the contextual elements of the text is concerned, I think Chetan Bhagat does a fairly good job here. He is witty, he is slapstic at times, yet he unearthes the nuances of the 'marriage market' in India today with panache and chutzpah. His portrayal of the idiosyncrasies of South and North India is witty and yet thought provoking.

This is not a 'heavy literature' and the language is for everyone to understand. It is a good time pass read for everyone.
