    Read it in one go!!

    It was so interesting that I had to read it all at once despite how busy I was.
    The plot is really interesting and the scene setting of author is fabulous. I loved the character of Aunt Parvati (typical punjabi woman found in most families) and ofcourse the lead Parshuraman as I can relate to him in many situations. Overall it is a nice package to read that keep you binded by its plot till the end. Highly recommended to every reader.

    Good debut novel

    Loved the whole trans-continental feel to the novel and easy to read language.. sympathized with Parshuraman and hated his sister! The most likeable characters easily were Nani and Jennifer and the ending was quite unpredictable.. great debut and all the best for the next book!

    A must read!!

    Came across an article on this book in the local paper. Being a resident of Chandigarh for the past 30 odd years, a beautiful dreamy town in North India, I was curious what would an author from this city be like. Well I have to say, the author ‘ Vani ‘ has been very true to her soil . Vani has beautifully captured the life of an IT professional born and bred in the city , who then moves further to become an NRI. All the dilemmas of a young NRI IT professional; from resisting a sassy hot co-wo...

    Entertaining

    Storyline: Interesting, realistic, engaging and entertaining.

    The book delves into the institution of marriage in the Indian context where the family plays a major role in hunting for a prospective bride/ groom for an eligible bachelor/ spinster in the family and why not after all marriage as per Indian belief is one that brings not two people but two families together. So here in ‘The Recession Groom’ we have an eligible bachelor in the protagonist Parshuraman Joshi a successful IT professi...

    Very Entertaing and Refreshing Read

    After reading a lot of non-fiction at a stretch I decided to pick some entertaining light read. I picked 'The Recession Groom' at someone's recommendation. Although I had a few thoughts like .. I know it all about Indian culture and recession and blah blah.

    Anyways I started with it and soon enough I was in the grip of this book. I found myself touring with it everywhere (including loo ;) as it's a fantastically refreshing read.

    The author's characterization is excellent and though they ha...

    Parshuraman learns about life

    Parshuraman Joshi is a Punjabi Brahmin with roots in Chandigarh. He studies and works in the USA. He is rather under the thumb of his bossy aunt, Parvati, who has nurtured him. He is 27, earning well and ripe for marriage.

    His sister Ragini and aunt Parvati try to outdo each other in looking for a perfect girl for Parshuraman. Poor Parshuraman starts feeling more like a commodity than a person as eager Mamas with young daughters pursue him.

    However, the book is not all about funny situation...
