Two States: The Story of My Marriage


Chetan Bhagat

Paperback    9788129115300


From bestselling author Chetan Bhagat comes another witty and amusing tale about life in modern India.  In 2 States he takes the subject of inter-community marriage.


Loosely based on his real life, 2 States: The Story Of My Marriage charts the love story between a Tamil girl (Ananya) and a Punjabi boy (Krish) who find their relationship jeopardized by this very ethnic disconnect.
Through a number of amusing and unfortunate clashes, the families disapprove of this union due to their cultural and ethnic differences. The magic that is Bhagat’s gift in storytelling is his use of humour and he employs this device to full use in this story where the North-South polarities provide generous comedic opportunities. Narrated from Krish’s point of view, a first person narrative, 2 States: The Story Of My Marriage is an infectiously lighthearted read that digs at the ethnic gap between Indian communities.
