I am an ordinary soul, an unknown Indian. Yet, I value my opinion enough to share it Given all the buzz around the book, yours truly tried her bestest to lay her hands on a copy Then Hitesh of bookreaderslounge. Err, rather by putting thumb to keyboard. And in due course became the happy owner of a copy. So thank you Hitesh and thank you Blogadda! About the 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. 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. 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. This is a fun story and makes for a light breezy read.
The book jacket cover catches your attention instantly and makes you want to read it. Ruchita must be displaying all her pearly whites. The book is in the form of diary entries written by Kasturi the protagonist. She is forced to meet several so-called eligible bachelors by her melodramatic mother whose sole aim in life is to get Kasturi her second Masters degree These meetings and what happens before and after make for some humourous reading.
TIB plays out as a predictable Bollywood love story, sticking faithfully to tried-and-tested formula. In fact, there is nothing fresh or ingenious about the storyline, yet the book leaves an impression and makes you laugh. The characters are relatable too and do not stretch your imagination. Not much suspension of disbelief either. It looks like Ruchita actually enjoyed writing this book Ya Jaane Na mixed with a wee bit of Dostana and a dash of Sabrina.
You will enjoy the mix-and-match flavour. Frankly, The In eligible Bachelors is a warm-hearted story that is tailor-made for the silver screen. Saif Ali Khan as the smooth charmer Rajiv Mehrotra though I am not sure if he has chocolate-brown eyes. Second choice: Bobby Deol. Shahid Kapoor as Dr. Purva Dixit. But for the stellar role of Pita-ji, I can think of none except Ritesh Deshmukh.
On second thoughts, even Sharman Joshi or Aftab Shivdasani may be a good choice. Suggestions: The book feels good to hold, but there are quite a few editing errors Not done. Could have and should have been pruned out. The accident bit works well, but the chase and dishum-dishum bit does not quite blend in.
Perhaps a mugging incident, an encounter with a thief or an intruder may have worked better. However, that does not take away from what is essentially an entertaining read. And no, I am not going to classify this as "chick lit" simply because no novel with a male-protagonist-and-male-author combo has ever been classified as "mutton lit". Or "beef lit" for that matter.

The (In)Eligible Bachelors
Though enjoyable and pretty entertaining, it comes with its set of minor flaws. Good things first: There is no major plot. But I like the characters. All of them. Kasturi with her freshness, and a loving heart; and her mom with her concerns about getting her daughter married to a highly qualified, rich bachelor of the same caste. Quite a fun read, the whole family picture. The transformation of almost tomboyish Ananya to a lovey-dovey koochi-cooing damsel is quite funny.
