Two States is a love story about Krish and Ananya. Krish is a Punjabi from Delhi and Ananya is a Tamilian from Chennai. They meet and fall in love while pursuing their MBA at IIM-Ahmedabad ( the country’s premier management institute).The story moves at a rapid pace and involves the usual- sex, sleepovers, studies and a complacent, private existence.

The honeymoon period ends when their parents meet for the first time at their convocation ceremony. Things quickly turn sour their parents evidently disapprove of a relationship where boy and girl are from opposite ends of the country. Since Krish and Ananya are deeply in love and are resolute in their decision to get married, the rest is about how they try to win over their in-laws through a series of futile attempts. The story swings back and forth between Delhi and Chennai. Like all love stories, this one, too, has a happy ending.

2 States is an easy read that is made is made digestible with a healthy dose of colloquial humor. It’s not as exciting as ‘Three Mistakes of my Life’ and or as absorbing as ‘Five Point Someone’. It’s a tale where the protagonists don’t let their parents’ decision sway their choice and stick to their guns.
