    Description

    Battle For Bittora by Anuja Chauhan is the humorous and gripping story of a political battle in the dusty hinterlands of India where a love story threatens to play spoilsport.

    Summary Of The Book

    In Battle For Bittora, Jinni, all of twenty five years, works in a cool and happening animation studio. She is content being independent and carefree till her grandmother Pushpa Pande turns up all of a sudden. The catch? Jinni has to leave for their hometown of Bittora to contest for a seat in the upcoming elections to the Lok Sabha! In spite of all her resistance, Jinni gets caught up in a whirlpool of emotions, sensations and unexpected experiences. As Sarojini Pande from the famous Pavit Pradesh Pande dynasty, she has to wear cotton saris, deal with corruption, allegations of nymphomania and nerve wracking heat. Battle For Bittora pits former royal Zain Altaf Khan against Jinni who is drool worthy but extremely idealistic.

    Battle For Bittora brings Jinni to an unfathomable climax of sorts when her childhood sweetheart Zain comes into the picture. Even though Jinni is swarmed by sycophants and election aides, she rediscovers her attraction and love for Zain. The dusty and hot lands of Bittora form an unconventional backdrop for their blossoming love story. However, each of them tries to outsmart the other in their race for power. Battle For Bittora is Indian to its very core and displays politics and its rotten underbelly in a light handed manner. Special mention must be made of Pushpa Pande who keeps readers laughing throughout the novel with her brand of accented English or Hinglish. Anuja Chauhan’s book stands out for its mischievous sense of humour and its tantalizing romanticism.

    Really humorous

    I would give this a five star!The incidents are hilarious and laugh-out-loud funny. The electioneering is very real too. Very few books manage to keep the reader so thoroughly entertained. If you are not much into chick-lits, dont be put off by the chick-lit - romantic sounding blurb. Its far more than just another romance novel. The liberal use of 'hinglish' may be a slight put off, so if you dont know hindi, you may be at a disadvantage.
    I rate this higher than 'The Zoya factor' for its hu...

    A remarkable read!

    I must credit this book for the fact that it brought me back to being a reader after a long long time. It is that good! The characters are great! the Hinglish which most people may have thought to be a negative for the book, gets a big yes from me. It made the characters a reality, especially the Ammaji! The book is sometimes so funny that it can make you actually laugh out aloud.
    On a serious note, this is the first time I actually came to know what exactly goes through the political circles...

    Simple and Good Read

    The simple language used by the author makes it a like-able book. The character of Jinni is portrayed beautifully and the bitter-sweet love affair between Zain and Jinni adds the required spice to the story.

    The story is simple with very little twist and turn. The story has its ups and downs and sometimes the story-line feels flat, but overall its an enjoyable read. Kudos to the Author for bringing humor to a boring topic like politics.

    One of my best ever reads!

    This is such an amazing book. So well written and the characterisation holds true indian sort of touch.
    Talking about Jinni and Zain, they're amazing! I personally got this because I heard about a Fawad Khan-Sonam Kapoor movie was to be made on it which got cancelled later. But I am so glad I read this book! Totally smitten by Anuja Chauhan's writing and explaining skills. Plus this is a true Indian book as I would say! A joyous read overall!
