Like many other books i have read, this one also belongs to same old routine Love story things. The book revolves around Deb – the protagonist and his girlfriend, friends and their college life.
i would not elaborate on the details about their so called love story as it is too mainstream. Coming back to the title of the book – it is the reason why the lead couple break up. The girl finds his boyfriend (Our protagonist) kissing someone else. The protagonist is drunk and defends himself to his best. But, girls you know. She asks for a break and the main part of the book begins. The guy goes mad, crazy, drunk and also angry at times (like all other guys).
in meantime, there are two important characters – Kabir and Malini, both have very crucial roles to play in the break up thing.
After a month the girl is back to protagonist and things start to patch up only to last for a short time. To justify an Indian authors fucked up and mediocre love story, the story takes a U – turn. The girl tells our protagonist that even she kissed a guy (Kabir) and also made out with him during the break.Our protagonist goes hell lot crazy and ends it once and for all.
Wait, its still not over. Meanwhile all get placed (they are doing their MBA in MDI, Gurgaon) and are back to respective lives. Our protagonist tries to forget the incident with the help of someone else (Malini, the girl he was caught kissing). It all comes to an end where our protagonist learns that his girl had lied to him in his face. She was just testing his Love for her (So called TESTING).
Now, in the end, our protagonist is guilty of all what he behaved and is back convincing or manofying his girl.
P.S – The book has got some solid punch lines which one can relate to one’s private life (and obviously to relationships).
some of the obvious real life things i found in the book:
1) Only girls have the right to rule (i would not say lead, never) in a relationship.
2) They can call for a break whenever they want and it will be till they desire to.
3) If you do the same, you don’t LOVE them enough.
4) A girl can test your love for her; if you you dare to try it, its all about TRUST issues.
5) Boys are responsible for that sweet SMILE to disappear from a Girl’s (probably princesses) face.
6) All guys are assholes, i mean all, and always!!
