About the Author :
Chetan Bhagat is the author of three blockbuster novels , five point someone (2004) , one night at the call centre (2005) and the three mistakes of my life (2008). All three books have remained bestsellers since their release and have inspired major Bollywood films. The New York Times called Chetan ‘the biggest selling English language novelist in India’s history’. Seen more as a youth icon than just an author , this IITD/IIMA graduate is making India read like never before.
Chetan also writes op-ed columns for leading English and Hindi newspapers , focusing on youth and a national development based issues.
Chetan quit his entire international investment banking career in 2009 , to devote his entire time to writing and make change happen in the country. He lives in Mumbai with his wife Anusha , and ex-classmate from IIMA , and his twin boys Shyam and Ishaan.

Characters :
Krish’s Family
Ananya’s Family

Summary :
2 States , a story about Krish and Ananya who are from two different states of India , deeply in love and want to get married. Of course , their parents don’t agree. To cinvert their love story to marriage , the couple have a tough battle in front of them. For it is easy to fight and rebel , but much harder to convince. Will they make it?

My Take :
I have read all Chetan Bhagat books up until now. This one is about Krish and Ananya who are the main characters and fall in love during college. Once they realise it’s time to tell their parents they take it step by step and it is certainly not easy. Both Ananya and Krish belong to different states thus the title and all the difference that comes along with it. A punjabi boy and a tamilian girl was not it. There came a punjabi family and a tamil family too. That’s when the trouble comes in.
This book was average unless of course you’re a Chetan Bhagat fan ! I liked the book as it is a light one to read.

Price : 95 INR
This book is not what we call a great pick but for someone who is a Chetan Bhagat fan this book must be read.

Rating : 2.5/5
