Once Indian women complete their education or get jobs, they have to face the most dreaded question, which is "Shaadi kab karogi?" Be it your excited friends, worrisome relatives or inquisitive neighbours, people make it their life's mission to ensure that you find a suitable match. The Shaadi Conundrum starts when you reach the so-called marriageable age and continues way beyond, once you get married, as there are a plethora of issues which we call 'adjustments' in India, that are considered 'normal' even if they are driving you nuts. From the pre-wedding phase to the post wedding phase, the book highlights the different issues that crop up, the reasons and effective solutions, which will be immensely beneficial for all urban women who are in the process of looking for grooms or have been married recently. The book contains useful tips, self-assessment checklists which will help women in dealing with conflicts and in decoding the relationship dynamics. 


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 Donts. 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. 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. Simple narration makes this book an easy read. The case studies help you understand the dilemma better. The checklists at the end of each chapters will help you know where you stand in your relationship. I will recommend this book to all women regardless of their age. 

I rate: 

Cover: 3.5/5 

Overall, I rate 'Indian Women and The Shaadi Conundrum' with 4.5/5 stars.
