The story commences in the IIM Ahmedabad mess (a not so happening place, surely), where Krish, a Punjabi boy from Delhi spots Ananya, a Tamilian girl from Chennai, quarreling with the mess staff about the food, and wonders about the beauty in an otherwise drought of pretty faces. They become friends because Ananya considers Krish harmless (one who could only be a friend). They start studying together and over time, she is proved wrong as a romantic fire is kindled in their hearts. They both land good jobs, and have serious plans of getting married. However as Chetan puts it, in India the story doesn’t end with ‘Boy and girl meet, fall in love and get married’. Thus, the focus shifts to convincing their families, which they eventually succeed in achieving after much ado.

The novel is narrated in first person with the characteristic informal storytelling. In a humerous manner, Chetan takes digs at the absurdness of Punjabi and Tamilian cultures at the same time impressing upon the strength of the love of Krish and Ananya which makes them perform ridiculous feats. The story has a personal angle with the Author drawing upon his own experiences. Yes, there are clichés and certain unreal events which make you feel a little out of place. However, recommended for all lovers who have gone the extra mile to prove their love (if at all it required one).
