TWO STATES BY CHETAN BHAGAT
His way of writing is so natrurla, and I read somewhere that he has made fun of south Indians..nothing like that,,infact north indians come out more as a shallow people. After rreading the book I loved Ananya the most..and then her parents, couldnt admire a single person of Krish family, even Krish doesnt come out so haloed as Ananya..how I would love to see a girl like that...she is a sooper:)..can you believe it that she has certain traits which I dislike but still I love her...cant get her out of my mind..she is a lovely person.
There are certain things everyone can identify with...
Boy's mother having a chip on her shoulder..about being groom's mother,
A girl bringing more dowry considered better:).(education and compatibility be damned)
Groom settled in US get more weightage.
Bride; earning more will get more respect.
many things one can relate to completely....like he writes..
Tamilians love to irritate non-Tamil speakers by speaking only in Tamil in front of them. This is the only silent rebellion in their otherwise repressed, docile personality.
But it is true with most of the people except north Indians may be, when I was in WB, wherever two bengali met, they will start chattering in bengali leaving me bewildered and isolated and the same happens with marathis also...I also sometimes feel like saying something in Hindi in conversation, but stops my self, but here on blog I take that liberty, so i am also equally guilty.
One of the fellow blooger Rich has dont the review..a detailed one and agree to her:)..you may read it here
Most of the characters in the book are well sketched..be it Bala, Ajay or the girls in Krissh's family. yesterday i read an article in TOI written by Chetan Bhagat on language issue..its worth reading, very well written.
All in all a good book and I will recommend to everyone...it gives us insight onto the life of IIM hostel life also:)
