2 States Vs Love

2 States book cover

Well as soon as I saw Chetan Bhagat on the cover I picked up this book in Odyssey. Well I'm a big fan of Chetan Bhagat right from his 5 Point Someone. Well another story telling a college love story between two states is what I thought as soon as I read the title. Well the synopsis of the story changed that thought. Which goes likes this.


Love marriages around the world are simple:
Boy loves girl. Girl loves boy.
They get married.

In India, there are a few more steps:
Boy loves Girl. Girl loves Boy.
Girl's family has to love boy. Boy's family has to love girl.
Girl's Family has to love Boy's Family. Boy's family has to love girl's family.
Girl and Boy still love each other. They get married.

Welcome to 2 States, a story about Krish and Ananya. They are from two different states of India, deeply in love and want to get married. Of course, their parents don’t agree. To convert their love story into a love marriage, the couple have a tough battle in front of them. For it is easy to fight and rebel, but it is much harder to convince. Will they make it?

I have finished the book and it's really good. Reminded me of a lot of things and one punjabi girl. Only after visiting Chetan Bhagat's Website did I come to know that the story is based on his own true life. :)
