2 States Book Review
The writer took inspiration from his own life, but the novel is a work of fiction. The novel is based on the story of a couple, who belongs to different states, castes and religion and wanted to get married. How they meet at IIMA campus and the way they convince their parents for their marriage is the actual plot of the novel. Soon they become good friends and their friendship turns into love and they start to live together. After the course both of them get job in the companies they have wished. Then Krish proposes to Ananya for marriage. While both of them were ready but not their families as, being from different states opposition from the respective families is obvious in India.
