Book Reviews


I had bought this one for gifting to a friend and here is what she has to say- " I find this book so amazing. It has some of the essential pieces of learning for the would-be brides while they are getting ready for the plunge. So many real life case studies and live examples keep you interested throughout (and I wished it had lasted a little longer). I think every girl should read this at least once during that important juncture of time."

A perfect read for all the brides and married females - "Indian Women and the Shaadi Conundrum", a book which openly and honestly talks about pre-marriage and post-marriage issues. This book is dedicated to all the Indian women who feel overwrought about Shaadi conundrum and think about why our society is so anxious about the marriage and kids.

Relationships are complex entities. The more you think you have understood them, the farther you drive yourself from understanding it. There is no relationship manual in this world that can help you have a sound and smooth-sailing relationship. The books will tell you about the Dos and Don'ts. Following them or ignoring them depends on completely on you. 'Indian Women and The Shaadi Conundrum' is one such book that will help you in your so-called Shaadi journey.

The book talks about the pre-marriage and post-marriage situations that a girl faces. Right from choosing a life partner to planning a baby, this book talks about all of it. Women are usually considered weaker. They aren't allowed to voice their opinion. With this book, one will feel inspired to take her own decisions. A relationship is a two-way street. Men and women, both have to walk together in order to reach the destination. Men often forget this. This book will be an eye-opener for men as well. The book teaches the reader how to be self-dependent and assertive. It tells you that there's nothing wrong in leading your life the way you want. The book has a special note for mother-in-law and husband. I would say that this book is not just for those girls who are going to be wedded soon but also, for those who are in relationships. It is not only for women but for men too. It is a self-help book which if followed will surely sweeten your relationship. The simple narration makes this book an easy read. The case studies help you understand the dilemma better. The checklists at the end of each chapter will help you know where you stand in your relationship. I will recommend this book to all women regardless of their age.

Indian Women and The Shaadi Conundrum is a perfect guide if you are searching for true LOVE in your LIFE.The book comprises of Before You Say Yes, Pre-Wedding Blues: Coping up with Stress, Life after Marriage: A New Phase, How to have a Happy Relationship with Your Husband, The Baby Dilemma, Coping up with Adjustments in a Marriage, Patriarchy, and the Indian Society & Self-Empowerment: The Key to Happiness. The duo has focused more on important details with amazing solutions. They have used multiple checklists and pointers throughout the book to make it easy to read and understand the points. The book is based on many surveys and research on women from different fields.

This book should serve as a reference point for organizations such as National Commission for Women and the case studies as a guide in drafting legislations to protect women, upholding their rights in society. A brilliantly explored scholar work that serves as a guide to the Government, academic institutions, NGOs and helping to spread awareness, raise mass consciousness and educate. Full marks to the authors for urging us to question rules that discriminate against fellow human beings. Such nonsensical rules should not only be questioned but chucked out. It’s written in a simple and direct language, that makes it easy to understand minus technical jargons. Go and grab it.
