Amrita Datta is petite and pretty, with large light brown eyes. But she calls herself an Army Girl, because of her army background. Her father and his two brothers were army officers, inspired by an uncle who almost became army general when Jawaharlal Nehru was Prime Minister. Marrying army officers is a tradition in both her father and mother’s side of the family.
Oscar Pereira, macho and handsome, is a reporter in the Mumbai edition of Newstimes, India’s largest newspaper. He comes from a family of staunch Christians. Delhi-based Amrita joins Newstimes as a trainee in Mumbai, as part of her one-year training programme. Busy with chasing front page stories, Oscar barely notices Amrita. Then when she has just twenty days left to return to Delhi, she is assigned to accompany Oscar to report on the Ganapati immersion at Chowpatty beach. But, both pay little attention to the event, because they suddenly discover love, although they have little in common – socially, culturally and religiously.
Will Oscar’s parents accept a non-Christian? Will Amrita’s parents allow a civilian in the army clan?
The LazyScoop Review:
The title of the book really intrigued me as to what it’s going to be about. I started reading it and from the first chapter itself this book made me smile. The book had some kind of nostalgia, it was very reminiscent to old Bollywood movies. Innocent Characters, Lovely situations and Light humour in some places was enjoyable to read.
The story is simple, Oscar and Amrita being in the same Newspaper Company, fall for each other. Marriage is a difficult task though, both are from different religions. And so convincing the families is a challenge. Will they be successful in doing so? For the Answers, one will have to read the book.
The merit of this book is its simple but entertaining plot, narration is smooth, lucid and language used is simple. The writer has writen it in third person perspective. The pace of the book is really fast in some places, and feels quite dragged in some places. However, it still manages to keep the reader’s attention glued to it.This book in the end, gives you a wide smile. I enjoyed reading it.
