REVIEWER’S TAKE

This book highlights the idiosyncrasies of arranged marriage. We are living in the 21st century but at many places, searching for a match through arrange marriage is a trip down to stone age. The story highlights the fact, for a few people girl’s education, career, beauty, nothing matters, only dowry is the deal maker or breaker. An instance is shared where the guy’s father asks the girl to ensure that the salary is transferred to his account. The beauty of the book is, it addresses few maladies without being preachy or boring. The story is gripping and well written. The author has added a dash of humor and wit to even the dullest of the situation.

PLOT

Mitali is a well-settled IT professional, who is looking for a perfect match through matrimonial websites. During the search process, she comes across different kind of boys. I remember one particular instance, where Mitali was supposed to meet this person, they mutually decide the time and venue. She reached a little bit early but the boy never turned up, he also has guts to not even respond to her calls. Totally humiliated she returns back to her home when the boy conveniently messages her, the meeting had supposedly skipped his mind, as he had to take his mom for a shopping trip. And this is not the only one instance but the story is packed with many more.

After reading the book, I was left wondering how difficult it is to be a human. The mindset towards marriage definitely needs an overall overhaul.

Priyanka’s writing is fresh, witty yet sensitive at certain points. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
