Synopsis13 - 2 States

'2 States' is about Krish Malhotra, a Punjabi guy and Ananya Swaminathan, a Tamil girl, who fell in love with each other while studying in IIMA. Both of them are madly in love with each other but their families are against this marriage.

Krish's parents want him to get married to some rich Punjabi girl. While Ananya's parents want her to get married to a Tamil guy with an American degree. In addition to this, Krish's family doesn't like Ananya and Ananya's family doesn't like Krish. Also, the two families doesn't like each other being culturally and linguistically poles apart.

Now, it is upto Krish and Ananya to get their families on board, so that they give their consent for the impending marriage.And that's the story !!

The story appears quite simple but highly exaggerated. The thing which I liked about this book is that the author has tried to insert humorous elements wherever possible. This humorous elements make this book readable, else the story is quite redundant and boring.
