This book is very much liked by the modern youth because of it's a collection of humor and reality in such a manner that it represents the state of modern generation youth in love. It is a novel written by Chetan Bhagat. It is the story about a couple coming from two different states in India, who face hardships in convincing their parents for approval of their marriage. The novel is a fiction, but is said to be inspired from the real storyof the author and his wife Anusha who are from Delhi and Tamil Nadu, respectively.

The story begins in the IIM Ahemedabad mess, where Krish, a Punjabi boy from Delhi sights a beautiful girl, Ananya, a Tamil from Chennai, quarreling with the mess staff about the food. They become friends within a few days and decide to study together every night. In time, they become romantically involved. They both get good jobs, and have serious plans for their wedding. But because their parents would not approve them, they decided to convince them one by one.

At first Krish tries to convince his girlfriend Ananya's parents and at last and convinces them by helping Ananya's father to do his first powerpoint presentation and later convinces her mom by asking her sing in a concert organised by Krish's office.She was convinced as she had her biggest dream of singing in a big concert comes to be true.

Then they tried to convince Krish's mom the problem was Krish's mother's relatives who doesn't quite like this,they say that Krish should not marry a Madrasi but ends up agreeing with them when Ananya tries to help one of Krish's cousin to get married and succeeds to do so.

Now as they have convinced both their parents they now try to make their parents meet each other to know each. They go to GOA.But this dream of theirs ends as Ananya's parents finds something fishy between Krish's mom and him. Ananya's family end up deciding that Krish and Ananya will not marry each other But at last Krish's father who was like a enemy for Krish helps Krish and Ananya to get married as he convinces Ananya's family well.

It is narrated in a first person point of view in a humorous tone, often taking digs at Tamil cultures . The novel ends with Ananya giving birth to twin boys. They say that the babies belong to a state called 'India'.

It somewhat near to real life, so it gathered attention of the people of all ages, making this novel the second biggest hit of Chetan Bhagat.
