2 states turned into 1

To my readers,

A story about a IIT-IIMA-ian guy Krish Malhotra & economics gold medalist as well as IIMA-ian girl Ananya Swaminathan… The first person is Punjabi & the latter Tamil brahmin…

Before going into it, I have something to say about the coverpage [read- an interesting wrapper], while i turned the book over, i saw something written over there, which was something like this..

In all over the the world,
A boy loves a girl , the girl loves him too & they get married..

In India,
A boy loves a girl, the girl also loves him..
The boy’s family love the girl, the girls family love the boy too…
The boy’s family love the girl’s family & the girl’s family also love the boy’s family…
The boy & the girl still love each other…
They get married….

These lines gave birth to two thoughts in my mind in succession ..

1.yes , its correct..

2.That is our love & priority to our parents…

Then I started reading the book… I had to cross many hurdles to read the book… like ******* practicals[read- semestar practicals], Avishek da( who even called me up around 4.30 am on my birthday asking for the book) & some more things which are too personal to disclose…
Today morning only I finished ‘2 states’….& I started with my review about this book…

Here goes the characters [read- lovers & villains] one by one in my views ……

1.Krish is great throughout… a nicely sketched character by Mr.Bhagat… he is simple, not a book-worm(Don’t mind IIT-ians, i’m not trying to discose anything about your character anyway.. no hard feelings), sympathetic, confused sometimes, hard-worker, charming..and yes a great lover… (I will surely mind wearing a ‘lungi’ which belongs to my father-in-law!!!)

2.Ananya… feminist of course.. confident, proud( of course she will be, she is an IIMA-ian indeed) the charm of the book till the Goa act…a bit impatient….and of course how can i forget about her beauty… in my words ‘a multicoloured butterfly’… But lastly i wanna quote a line from the book, “The word ‘future’ & women is a dangerous combination”…she is no different….

3. Krish’s mom[read- sometimes the cause of my red face while reading the book] A real mom… rather a real punjabi DNA…but she loved her son.. & as she faced such[you will get it while reading the book] a life, the mistakes she made are easily forgivable..

4.Krish’s father A teriffically confusing character…. a former Army Officer who loves to shout at his better half… doesn’t love someone watchin his TV… but turns out to be the savior of Krish’s life atlast…..When he started to grow feelings for his son…. While he started to earn money???

5. Ananya’s parents Here I loved the sketching of characters by Mr.writer… I have only one thing in mind for the ‘harish-lovers'[don’t make your brain work much.. read the book ..& you will get to know…]They are a good family, all they need to do is to change the way they eat…;)

The other characters are ‘sweet and salty’…they add a special flavour to ‘two states’…

The book is an awesome treat to read..They way Chetan Bhagat described how 2 states came closer & closer is inexplicable…I’m sure anyone can enjoy the book with the couple from Del’-‘nai* (Krish & Ananya…I’m sure if Ananya was for real she would have called me in my personal no. to change it to Ananya & Krish.. but lucky me ,lucky Krish..)

But Lastly, here I throw a question for everyone… specially guys…”I couldn’t make out, a superp sexy girl like Ananya is hanging out with a guy like Krish( who doesn’t even have any other friend to discuss about.. leave friend-circle!!! )… and the other guys of IIM saw them , cutting their nails with their inborn nail-cutters(teeth)..!!thats starnge.. Isn’t it!! ”

PS- By the way, I forgot to tell you.. the ****** [read- physical closeness] parts are also nicely described…
*Del’-‘nai – Delhi + Chennai

  4. @Souvick Good try in reviewing the book. But lemme tell you, book review is a completely different horizon to talk about. Improve your analytical skills. Also writing.

    @Tushi I don’t know who you are, but all I want to tell that if Chetan Bhagat is your favourite English author, then seriously you need to catch up with standard English writings, which seriously lacks in Chetan’s books. You can catch up with any other well-selling English authors books if you wish. Or something more international.

    thanks for the comment… appreciations gives a good feel , criticism gives better…. /// and about Chetan Bhagat, he doesn’t believe in awards and avoids heavy words in his writings… he loves to connect to the mass… & thats his speciality….
