D-for-Dhamaka! A fun read indeed!

The 5 daughters of BJ (Bau Ji) are the 5 different hues of the spectrum. Well, technically 4 because the 3rd offspring((Chandu with her Estonian spouse and son Hendrick Narayan Lippick) never surfaces. You can hear the Judge yelling "no one should take her name in the house" and ultimately discover the "secret" nexus between old Mr Gambhir and LN which clearly marks out the fact that a father can't be weaned away from a child for long.

The show stealers are themembers of the thakur clan--Anj...

Immensely putdownable!

Damn! If you are one of those guys who have the audacity to flip through the pages of a rather pernicious looking "chic-flick" and decide to breeze through it in the hope that such an un-nerving genre does not exist in the first place. Well. then you could not have been more wrong. This self styled salt and peppery attempt at Jane Austenesque style of writing falls flat on its face and well is absolutely for girls and teenage ones at that. I was hoping for a run up through the nostalgic 80's ...

Hillarious

This is my first Anuja Chauhan book and i must say it will be the first of many books to read from this Author.after reading the first few pages i just couldnt put it down n completed within 3 days ...and it has its mushy moments and all in all a great peak into the era when we only had one channel to boost of and off course you do come to know abt politics @ that time ..all in all a good read and the characters stay with u even after putting down the book..go for it .. !!!!

A Breath of Fresh Air!

I think its a very brave move for Anuja Chauhan to write about the 80s- it was a huge risk taken on her part as descriptions are very important for creating the background in a novel- and she nailed it! Although I am only a teenager right now, I was able to clearly imagine the 80s because of the apt descriptions. I remember my mother telling me about those times when they used to have Doordarshan as the only channel and the whole family used to be huddled in front of the TV every Sunday to wa...

Fun and frolic!

The cover of Those Pricey Thakur Girls by Anuja Chauhan proclaims her to be the only author of popular Indian fiction worth reading. Now, I usually steer clear of populist Indian fiction for the simple reason that they are usually so bad that I can actually feel my intellect going down while reading these books. But this was a highly recommended read from two of my friends so I thought to take a plunge with this one and I was definitely not disappointed.

This book follows an extremely quirky...

L for Love, D for Debjani, D for Dylan

Justice Laxmi Narayan Thakur and his wife Mamta produced 'five delectable daughters, each one more beautiful than the other' named alphabetically. Anjini- childless, flirt (she irritated me), Binodini- lalchi selfish, Chandralekha- run away bride, Debjani- lovers of losers... finding her Mr.honest and brave and kind, Eshwari- queen of her school.

D for Dylan singh shekhawat is honest (well, he stole ten rupees from another boy's pencil box and spent it on cigarettes) and brave (jumping from ...

Left it midway!

After hearing a lot about this book, I was looking forward to reading it. However, the writing disappointed me. You may enjoy it on a train journey or while waiting on an airport terminal but there is nothing in this book that stays with you after you have finished it. The characters are so so and the the author writes about a pre liberalized India but with modern day sensibilities.

If you want to read a well written good book go read Love and other impossible pursuits or The Glass Castle!

The Thakur Girls: Awesome

Two words for the book “Brilliantly Awesome”. The book was given to me by a friend as I liked the cover a lot and the title was very catchy. She warned me not to read the book in metro as there would be moments when I would be laughing loud and people would be staring at me as if I am mad. Well, I took her advice and read the book in my room, but that didn’t stop my brother from calling me mad girl as I was laughing loudly all alone in my room. Now you can guess how hilarious this book is, it...
