Two States !!

22 Oct



Two States – thats chetan bhagat recent book…which i read luckily…After having angel..its kind of touch to catch up on my activities and interest..I am not kind of book loving person but really love reading all CB’s book…infact his “one night at call center” was the first one i read completely

Story is simple but way of narration is simply superb..

Boy loves girl. Girl loves boy.They get married.

In India, there are few more steps

Boy loves girl, Girl loves boy.

Girls family has to love boy. Boy’s family has to love girl,

Girl’s family has to love boy’s family.Boy’s family has to love girl’s family.

Girl boy still managed to love each other .they get married

This is what is written at back of book and summarize whole story… There is guy krish who loves south indian beauty ananaya swaminathan…Falling in love is easy but to materialise it till  marriage is not peice of cake.They met in IIMA campus and got mad for each other..Soon college life got over and they got job in  different company.  pre=””>Krish managed to get posted in Chennai which is ananaya’s hometown…He tried his level best through his amusing ways to impress them by giving coaching to younger brother Manju , giving chance of singing at concert to her mother , helping dad with his office work  In second part its ananya’s turn to plead krish’s family and she also did it well..problem came when family have to meet…Well i m not gonna write whole story here..go and grab the book..its worth reading !!!


There is good comparison between south indian and north indian living style and mentality. He tries to make fun of both so that nobody feel offended Like for what marble flooring is for north indian family ..its iit degree for south indian

There is important lesson also which i like most.. ” Forgiving – For you ..forgiving doesnt make the person who hurts you feel better…it makes you feel better”  ..so apt and true !!


There is something different in chetan’s writing style which makes me hooked to it until i finish it..though for this one i took 1 week to finish…like my homework i use to read it mostly at night or early morning hours
