What happens when you’re in your late 20s with every nanosecond taking you closer to the terrifying thirties…?
When in every call all your momma talks about is marriage… When all your cousins, far-fetched relatives…even the relatives next door neighbor’s grand uncle’s daughter’s niece has got married and your still single.. Awright the last line was a slight exaggeration 🙄 so what… But that’s what this is all about 😀
You live in Delhi with the only sole solace being your 2 thicker than thick friends…they are the only ones who brighten up your ladies single nights out at the snazziest clubs… Each of you stuck in the same rut waiting for a divine intervention or a miracle for a funny-idiotic-never happens to me- thing called LOVE… in short you’re in search of your perfect soul-mate…
And worst of all… you know you are big bodied-(that’s how aisha calls herself—why do I relate myself to this 😛 ) and getting guys who are single and 30+ is like searching a needle in haystack or worse.. Searching a needle in a barn 😀
What happens when due to some divine intervention and some Swami Ka aashirwad… you finally glimpse at the perfect Adonis of your life… only neither is the moment right nor is the situation… What happens when he makes sure you accompany him almost everywhere he needs company only to introduce you to what-u-think could be a potential competitor… What happens when his cousin mistakes you to be one of those freaks who pick up gals not only for a man but also for herself…?
Amidst all this you also have Mumma, maasi (aunty) and cousin sister troubling you with innumerable questions on “are you even gonna get married”…
When your Adonis finally does ask you… Your are just too awestruck and numb to reply… and like all books and stories in the end it’s always a HAPPY Ending..!! 😀
Cos dint SRK say “if it’s not a happy ending it means the movie is yet to end 🙂 ”
This is the story of Aisha Bhatia… The book Almost Single by Advaita Kala..
Awesome… mind-blowing… and simply marvelous…sexy… sassy… a supersplendofantabulous book 😀
I’m running out of adjectives to describe this one… Though it’s a Chic lit, I assure you even guys can read this 🙂
It’s simply endearing and depicts the predicament of a typical nearing-30-still-single female… who faces the trauma from the typical Indian Society which has a stigma for women who are above the age of 25 and still single… mocking at your dressing tastes, nature, behavior, even to the extent of wondering if you’re really straight.. Sigh!! Nonetheless this is not wat the book is about… its jus a nice feel-good… humorous take into the life of Aisha Bhatia 😀 and I guess any of you singletons out there are sure to relate to her predicament J
Rock on guys go ahead and buy the book… I loved it so much that I wud say it’s a perfect un-put-down-able book 😀
4/5 from me 😀 and yes CERTIFIED MUST READ
Im keeping up my word of more book reviews 😉
That’s it from Megzone for now..!!
