Sorry! This book is no longer available to read.

Synopsis

“Love gave me a very comical virtue - chastity.”

How the hell did I land up in this mess? All I wanted was for Devika to say yes to going with me to the prom. Now since I didn't have a face like Ranbir and a body like Hrithik (not to mention their fame, bank balances…), I wasn't vain enough to think I could achieve this on my lonesome. So I asked for Divine Intervention.

Of course since there is no such thing as a free lunch (exam mein 35 laane ke liye bhi 17.5 naariyal todne padte hain), I had to offer something in return. And in a moment of colossal stupidity, I came up with my own version of a Bhishma Pratigya - “I will be chaste, I will not look at another girl, I will not even think of…”

Pungi baji na? Might as well have promised to jog up and down Everest 5 times before breakfast carrying the population of Chinchpokli on my shoulders…

And to make it worse the minute I took my pledge, every basketball playing chickie on campus, every psycho rick guy with a taste for bawdy gaana bajaana, every libido stimulating hoarding, every pervy comic book artist – the entire Universe in general set out to do a Rama at Sita’s Swayamvar. Only instead of a bow, it was my chastity vow they were trying to annihilate!

As if that wasn’t enough, enter Alisha…

Who’s Alisha? Just a girl so hot, that her very sighting would cause the cerebral chips of every guy in a 500 metre radius to get so fried that they would be reduced to a state of “DUH...HOTTIE.”

And she was wanting to ‘make friendship’ with me.

Put simply boss – MERI TOH LAGNE WAALI THI!

Entertaining just like Abhishek Bachan's movie.Humour is not humourous enough.

The book seems intended for a collegial / younger audience (15-30 years of age). It ticks boxes by way of humour as well as portraying the general existential angst / confusion of a young gent in love. Well worth a read.

The only thing I felt while reading this book is as if I am sitting with a friend who just doesn't know when to shut up. Everything is spelled out for the reader (even the fact that the book is supposed to be funny).

Think the author is trying too hard to be funny...Emotional connect is missing...

The synopsis mentioned alisha talking to him which makes him feel that it was a wrong decision...somehow i was waiting for that...the chapters can be divided into 2 halves...one praising devika and the other praising alisha...Somehow didnt connect with me...nonetheless all the best!!

About the author

I love stories - hearing them, seeing them, discovering them and when I'm not in one of my all too common lazy spells, penning them down.
