2 States: The Story of My Marriage by Chetan Bhagat

2 States: The Story of my Marriage by Chetan Bhagat is a wittily written novel describing the ups and downs of an Indian marriage where the bride and the groom belong to two different communities.


The story is about a Punjabi groom falling in love with a Tamilian Brahmin bride while studying in a prestigious management institute. Both the families are dead-set against the marriage - but how things they encountered in their life are taken care of!

This book is lighthearted, enjoyable and also an eye-opener for all readers. The message is clear: that we in India are a conservative society and it takes strong determination and unconditional love to overcome the age-old stereotypical thinking.

Once you start reading, this book will hold on to you, and it may even keep you awake until you would complete it in one go! I recommend it for all the book club members because it is such a comical and good book where one starts laughing out loud at several incidents that happen!
