Marriage is traditionally the destiny offered to women by society. Most women are married or have been, or plan to be or suffer from not being.~ Simone de Beauvoir
Arranged marriages though very common in India for centuries together are still very much prevalent and happening.. The pain that the gal goes through in each of the “rishta” that comes is m sure more than what she feels during labour..There still exist the Maa-s who feel her kid(irrespective of son/daughter) is one up on the other person’s comparing qualifications, skin colour/texture, height, salary package et al. bringing the skin of Generation Y to blush a deep beetroot till their roots which otherwise on any given day would be as normal as yours or mine.
Never before have a I read any book so fast in my life 😉
Ineligible Bachelors- as the name might have already given a clue is about arranged marriage.. The narrator
also the female protagonist and her tell tales of meeting prospective groom alongside her inexplicable “chemistry n love” with her boss..Does kasturi have a say in front of an “if-u-loved-me-enuff-u-wud-meet-this-guy” mom and a “my-lips-are-sealed” dad? Will she marry the man she fell in love with.. or choose one of the guys her dearest MA chooses for her? Will She Wont She??
To all this drama add a few twists and turns accident, broken bones, hospital scenes, thugs, attempt to murder alongwith a few “crack-me-up” meets with prospective grooms and you have a Hilarious CHICK LIT..
Overall I am satisfied with the book… I laughed, cried, swore at the right places.. which definitely means I enjoyed the book.. The best thing about reading Chick-lits is relating to the characters in the book which is an important aspect to relish a book and yes to a very large extent I could relate to the main character in more than many ways.. Another tale of Happily Ever After and hell, we have enough worries in reality we could do with a wee bit of happiness in the books and movies atleast 😉 I give it a 4/5
Kudos to Ruchita Misra.. Why? Cos for being a first time author her book has definitely captured my attention and I would recommend it to my friends.. Lay your hands on this one and m sure you r definitely not gonna regret 😉
And last but not the least thanks to BlogAdda, I dint have to beg, borrow or steal to lay my hands on this lovely book 😀
