Her friend Aditi, who is quite experienced in terms of love and relationships, offers to help her by arranging dates for Kaveri.
After a slew of unsuccessful dates, she does finally end up in a relationship, which is kind of ephemeral with the man, but true and eternal with her own self.

my point(s)-of-view after reading the book:
* the author has tried her best to be a chetan bhagat in disguise (well, not-so-well). there is this desperate struggle of the protagonist to portray herself as a foodie (typical C.B. style. and well, seldom men like the women who chew a bone first, and a boner next. pls set it as a reminder while working on your next book. you can count on me. i'm a guy after all...)
* has the kinda humor that no guy under the sun will ever enjoy (but all girls certainly will, i think). instances wherein the characters supposedly "burst into laughter,&quo... (Expand)
Its been whole lot of waste of time in reading this book since I kept on expecting that there would be something interesting to read. In short, its a low-grade book available on road-side shops with a fancy cover.
Please do some useful work instead of reading this book.
* s3x in the baloon: did i just read the porn version of Goosebumps? Einstein quoted that "imagination is more powerful than knowledge," but he certainly forgot to quip- "the imagination of women is more powerful than imagination itself."
* all in all, it was a 'Mad Bane' experience (abbreviating the author's name)
project summary: i want my money back. i shall magnanimously "let go" the time being invested in reading the book.
For starters, nobody should waste money on this book because it has a dumb, pathetic, filmy, trashy, sub-standard storyline. The book, in no way, enriches the reader; the story does not stay with the reader once he/she is done reading it
I am not going to give a synopsis for the book for the simple reason that I don't even remember the damn dumb story.
And secondly, nobody should waste a single moment of their lives on this piece of trash. God knows why I purchased this book.
I read the book because I had to, after knowing that it is the prequel to Mistakes Like Love and Sex. The book starts with the ordinary life of Kaveri who is 30 yet virgin. She is unsure of her life and unaware of her dreams. She has seen the world and speaks seven different languages, she is confident and possesses all the qualities an average successful girl should have. Yet there is something that is missing inside her.
The story is woven around the protagonist Kaveri. Basically showing the changes in her character as she gains experience in life through real life examples. However, in... (Expand)
Indeed, and which nation are we talking about? If Shobhaa De and Sushmita Sen are praising it...it must be...INDIA. Nice joke. (View complete review)
Being her first book, I will excuse the repetitive sentiments of Kaveri being portrayed to gain sympathy from the readers. If you will read all three books of her, you will realise she has matured with her writing, storyline and vocabulary too. Pick up Advantage Love from the rack...it's her best...

This book is really and truly, a waste of time. It starts off fairly promisingly, but then, the author tries too hard to bring in a variety of ideas into a single plot. The result is that the reader totally loses interest in what he is reading, and stops caring altogether.
Anyway, the title of t... (View complete review)
I had purchased this book after scrutinizing lots or reviews over the internet and finally decided to shell out my 170 rupees for this. To begin with, it's a complete girlish novel totally cornered on the female protagonist Kaveri. The thing to be noted here is that "women are very confusing... (View complete review)
