The Good Indian Girl (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 265

Who is the Good Indian Girl? What does she look like? How does she dress? Is she real — or is she a myth?

In this funny, wicked, touching, irreverent, poignant collection of stories, Annie Zaidi and Smriti Ravindra lift the veil (or sari pallu) on the lives and loves of girls who have been born or raised in the subcontinent.

The niceties have to be observed, but the urge to subvert is often overwhelming. As they shimmy down drainpipes at midnight, or steal covert glances at the boys across the street, the real life incidents from which these stories are drawn will ring a bell with any woman who has negotiated the minefield of family love and romantic longing and desire that lies between childhood and womanhood.

This is the Good Indian Girl as she has never been seen before—fiesty, imaginative, a little crazy, smart, vulnerable. Prepare to be surprised.

First to review

Wonderful read

Annie Zaidi and Smriti Ravindra have written a collection of stories that explore what it means to be a Good Indian Girl (or GIG - if there’s a GIG, there’s got to be a Bad Indian Girl or BIG as well). The stories, set in small towns and big cities follow the lives of interconnected characters - but unlike the more annoying fractured narratives that found currency in Hollywood movies like Crash and Mexican ones like Amores Perros, these stories grow organically, branching out and reaching heights of joy or digging roots deep down to the darker side of being a young woman in India.

Surprised me completely

Started reading with lots of assumptions considering the subject of the book but I was proved wrong. Overall I was zapped by this wonderfully written series of short stories.

How this will help INDIAN men to understand INDIAN women better:

There are times where there's absolutely no reason to worry, you have to let woman be themselves and wait until she tells. If it takes longer, ask. Do not jump into guns. Just like I did before reading this book, I made classic mistake, judged it before reading it. Asking solves many unwanted issues. Makes communication easier.

Just like men, women too h

Disappointing

had loads of expectations from this book but fell flat.
Most stories are absolutely boring,with dry drab social topics woven again and again.
Its a mix of girly gossip and aunty politics.Not risque content or gender-inequality issues. Not discirimination. Its about a bunch of mischievous girls, the same characters who come again and again in different stories revealing about their 'kaands; done in their younger days.

Even my mom absolutely loathed the book.
