Debut Book by Himanshu Modi, it is a satire on the prevalent tradition of Arranged Marriages. The author provides a 360 degree view to the entire process of an arranged marriage... from a "boy's" perspective.

Flipkart

Marriage was always going to be an inescapable eventuality for Ajay Shroff. For a Gujarati, at the age of 26, he is anyways late on the matrimonial circuit. By the time he is 28, he is officially an antique. And yet, he cannot get over his "gamophobia”. The problem is, he is not really scared of marriage, or of girls, and definitely wouldn’t mind the companionship. So he cannot really pinpoint why meeting a girl for arranged marriage makes him feel so terrified. Perhaps it is just the fear of the unknown. Or perhaps it’s the pre-matrimonial misadventures that have got him thinking that if the “before” is so deplorable, what utter hell lies in the “after”? How he wishes for a romantic fairy-tale of how he met his wife. If only he wasn’t getting married just because his Mom says, “Get Married!”
