 Aditi Bhan's Novel Narrates the Story of a Modern Day Career Girl and Her Dreams

Journalist Aditi Bhan's novel titled 'When Are You Getting Married?' narrates the story of a present day career girl, her dreams, and how they are realized. The 179 page book with 51 chapters has been published by Partridge.

This novel focuses on the experience of a young girl named Poornima who wants to make a mark in her career, and hopes to get married to a person of her choice. As depicted in Bollywood movies, she looks forward to falling in love with a person of her choice and getting married. But it does not turn out that way and once she attains 'marriageable age', her parents look for a boy, and conclude an 'arranged marriage'.


She cannot go against her parents, as it would disturb the peace in her house, Poornima accepts that perhaps arranged marriages are not always bad; and not everyone falls in love. Arranged marriages at least ensure that everyone gets a life partner, if not love. She meets several boys, including their parents, but things do not work out. She finally decides to put an end to the ordeal by agreeing to a proposal. In one case, the engagement is finalized, but it does not end up in marriage.

Poornima then decides to concentrate on her career, and wants to become a chartered accountant. As she has to keep her parents happy, she continues to meet boys to conclude an 'arranged marriage'. To put an end to the tension at home, she agrees a proposal, and a second 'engagement' is concluded. But she does not realize that in her office someone had fallen in love with her, and she had also, in a way, been responding to him.

There is a crisis again and how does it end now?

If you are a young girl of 'marriageable age' pursuing a career in a metropolitan Indian city, buy the novel. It might just help you making a decision.
