Book Summary of 2 States: The Story of My Marriage

2 States is the catchy, hilarious and quirky tale of Ananya and Krish’s marriage. This story is a retelling of Chetan Bhagat’s marriage with his college sweetheart. Bhagat is impressively witty in putting down the nuances that he went through during his wedding. A must read!

Summary of the Book

A wedding in India is a complex affair that involves more than just the bride and groom - it includes every member of both the families. Chetan Bhagat’s 2 States is the author’s personal account of the challenges that he and his wife faced in convincing their parents to agree to their love marriage.

The novel is a hilarious take on the complications that arise within Indian families, especially when youngsters from diverse backgrounds fall in love and decide to tie the knot. As Bhagat aptly portrays, not only should the couple be willing to wed, but their families have to accept the union too!

Bhagat leads his readers through the love story of Ananya and Krish, who belong to two culturally diverse states in India. They fall deeply in love during their time together in college, and as time goes on, they decide to get married. To be happily married ever after, though, they have an arduous task ahead. They have to persuade their parents, and for this, Krish must figure out a way to fit into a traditional south Indian household, and Ananya must try and compete with her Punjabi counterparts.

Bhagat belts out a quirky and witty novel that’s peppered with humor, and the contrast of a Punjabi and Tamilian household is brought out through this book.

Neha May 22, 2012 review from Goodreads

There is Fiction, then there is Drama and then there is Bollywood.. well 2 States is definitely not the former 2.. being Bollywood end to end. At time you think it is a script written for a movie & by chance printed as a book. Long back when I read Chetan's 5 pt Someone, I liked it, as in it...

Keerthy March 22, 2011 review from Goodreads

Chetan Bhagat, in my opinion, might not have read any good book in his life, except Mills and Boons. Now, he might be India's bestselling author, but he can never be a best writer, if he goes on writing this stuff. I never see any substance in his writing, no standard. If there is any in 5 Point...

I'm about 30 pages in and I was having high expectataion on this book warmly recommended to me by some Indian friendes. Chetan Bhagat is one of the most-beloved Indian authors writing in English, but as everywhere, the best-loved isn't always the best literature. The characters are unpleasant and...
