Description

The book's a great read with an attractive theme and varied characters. I enjoyed reading it."
-- Amish Tripathi, Bestselling author of The Shiva Trilogy

In an age when families are becoming more nuclear, Karthik's family was an aberration: It was a large joint family with its own complications, contradictions and commonalities. Two love stories and a wedding get intertwined within the family at the same time. One of them could make or break the joint family, will the family survive? Will the love story succeed? Will the younger generation respond to the needs of the family? How will the older generation respond to the changing perceptions of the younger generation? Will the family eco-system survive?

In an India swamped by globalization, this racy and humorous story tries to dissect the generational changes in Indian society and how the Indian society is responding to the changes.

Praise for the book
"Sriram is a delightful new voice. He writes with verve and humor. And he understand that bewildering institution: the Great Indian Family"
-- Hindol Sengupta, Writer & Editor at Fortune India.

"This is the tale of a wedding, actually two weddings. At once over the top & vividly contemporary, it tells of the dynamics of the indian middle class family simultaneously negotiating tradition and modernity. Sriram does a great job of describing NRI cousins, old college rivalries and inter-generational relationships"
-- Sanjeev Sanyal, Economist & Bestselling Writer
