Bloomsbury to Publish Knotty Affairs by Chirag Bagadia
We Indians, dipped in the rich traditional culture, have the penchant to enjoy even the smallest of the customs involved in lavish marriage celebrations. The very thought of our best friend getting married is enough to get us excited for the marriage functions.
Out of the many traditions celebrated, one of them involves an Indian bride leaving her parents’ home and moving in with her husband and inlaws.
For an Indian guy, there always is a choice- whether he has to stay with his parents or stay separately.
Unfortunately, for an Indian girl, it is never a matter of choice..even if a girl loves her parents dearly, she is rooted out of her parents’ lovenest and placed in a complete stranger world.
What happens when Aakash, a 27 year old budding dentist falls in love with a girl who is not in sync with this one tradition followed during the marriages. What if she is courageous enough to tell Aakash“
Just as you love your parents, I love mine too..why am I asked to leave them if you can’t?”
Aakash, although in love with the girl, is left questioning his own belief, when he finds his love simply not in acceptance with one ‘mandatory’ tradition involved in marriage.
Take this breath-taking and tradition-defying journey with Aakash, Kashish and Aneri as they dare to delve deeper into the web of love and relationship. Witness them write their love own love letter to their parents in the most unique and life-defining way.
Warm up to their crazy antics and solutions as they string to your hearts and almost make you ask yourself why can’t this be my journey too?
