2 States : The Story Of My Marriage (Paperback) Price: Rs.119

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.

FIRST TIME EVER-a love story proved to be a motivational one(for career)

Dear writer,
I completed it in 8 consecutive hours (from 11:30pm-7:30 am).I have been preparing for CAT plus have a boyfriend from IIT-D (currently working in J.P. Morgan chase), who is a devil-may-care kindda and innocent (because least interested in girls and I career-focused) guy. A couple of things in your story and mine do match. Two things were bugging my mind like anything. first-will I’ll be in one of the IIMs, and second-will he ever grow up? Now it had to happened, I got to read it. Actually he had threatened me not to read it till I am done with CAT.
Time for THE EXPERT'S COMMENTS (bad joke? I know)...as everyone in the country is aware it's a moving love story though common in story but outstanding in narration..(Actually things become common, how we can expect God to create a new story for everyone. Population Problem you see.)...Apart from my "non-jhelable jokes”. I would like to adulate by saying "It was not just a love story but proved to me a motivational one, I started burning the midnight oils, and gird up my loins to make my dream come true(because i was really fascinated by the HALLMARK that you both possessed)..i even liked the blending of the flavor of 'united India' to it(since i am highly patriotic)..
And now I am so relaxed, and have stated to myself like his mine love story will also be fine. I have sent him a copy of the novel. Along with that I sent a love letter too to do some coaxing work and how can I forget mentioning, I put some leaves of a branch that touches my balcony (like Ananya did. sorry no flowers available neither in my hair nor in my balcony)...Thanks for bearing another writer and for the 'ACTUAL REVITALS'...i destressed myself..

FINISHED IT IN 5HRS:NOW DOING REVISION TOO

Beauty of Life comes in small thing...the same way Chetan's novels have captivated a whole new genre of readers..who have the power to transform our nation.His message is clear..the narrow boundaries of States should fall before India the Nation and ofcourse love proves the tool to do away with such ills..Yeah!!I loved this novel in that way...the tone of Chetan's novels always present the story frankly and reading novels about things of our own lyf truly stir our memories..both sweet and yeah..sad.But that's what is great about Chetan.
My Final Judgement Dear Prospective Readers...JUST BUY THE BOOK..NO 2ND THOUGHTS..
To Chetan Sir::JUST GO ON ,MAKE US READ & THINK ,IAM SURE U WILL ONEDAY COME OUT WITH A MASTERPIECE THAT WILL SURELY CHANgE HOW WE THINK ABOUT INDIA..WAITING 4 THAT DAY WITH ALL MY HEART

Poor work by Bhagat

There is nothing to excite about this novel.Poor description and ideas about "Madrasi" people.If people praise chetan Bhagat as a best novelist and his work as great then I regret for them because they havent tasted the best stories , novels and literature yet

Chetan needs to break new grounds now

Just finished reading 2 states. There are moments in the book which make you laugh and there are moments where you will get to think. But largely otherwise this book is just about average. I got a feeling that Chetan has repeated himself in this book. The book is not very long, but seems long and that's not good.

This book also seems to be written with the hope of converting it in a movie - too many formulas and impractical situations...probably would have worked slightly better if this were not a semi-autobiographic attempt. At times, it reads extremely corny and immaturish as well.

I am sure people who have read Chetan before (like me) will buy this book and read it and kind of enjoy it in parts atleast. His books have been light entertainment and at the price point that they sell, they are definitely worth the money that you put in and more. But whether his books remain with you and if they are your companions for multiple reads and peeks in between, i don't think so. And that's where Chetan now needs to break new grounds. Start with focusing on developing the characters, having more practical and sensible story-plots (not the typical bollywood jokes).

All said and done, i will wait for Chetan's next book - he is good fun for a few hours that it takes to read his books.
