ABOUT THIS BOOK
Arranged marriages are complicated things. So are mothers. And so are relationships.
Kasturi Shukla is a fresh MBA graduate with a great job in hand. She is also geeky and single at twenty-four. The biggest sore spot in Kasturi?s life is her dominating, arranged marriage obsessed mother now hell-bent on getting her married at the earliest.
Does Kasturi find love in one of the rather weird but IIT/IIM boys that Mum manages to ?shortlist?? Or perhaps she can follow her wildly beating heart that seems to be set on the Greek God incarnate that her boss, Rajeev sir, is?
With office buddies Ananya and Varun by her side, the hilariously fumbling Kasturi embarks on a rip-roaring journey to find Mr Right.
The (In)eligible Bachelors, which chronicles Kasturi?s daily diary through this time, is a riotous adventure of adrenaline, laughter and guffaws.
It is also an invaluable lesson in love, family and friendship.
A witty take on the system of arranged marriages, the marriage market that rules the Indian society.
A witty and humorous easy-to-read writing style makes for a good read.
The creative chapter headings arouse the what-next quality.
