In a city where old is meeting new, daughters are surprising mothers, and love is breaking all the rules, this heartfelt and wickedly funny cross-cultural debut novel introduces a smart, irreverent young woman searching for independence and matrimony in a culture bound by tradition. Somewhere a clock is ticking, though as far as Aisha is concerned, it can be cheerfully drowned out by laughter over a champagne brunch. Yet when the handsomely chiseled Karan Verma arrives from New York, Aisha experiences an unexpected attitude adjustment. Savvy, sexy, and unforgettable, Almost Single tackles the loving, exasperating tug-of-war between mothers and daughters, traditional customs and contemporary romance—and what happens when a modern Indian woman is caught in the middle.

I Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced. But it's not working for me. The characters needed far more development if I was supposed to care. Jun 29, Sarthak is currently reading it. Terse, urban and bold View 1 comment. Jan 08, Namitha Varma rated it it was ok Shelves: Indian Bridget Jones.

I'd have enjoyed this more when I was one of the single-and-desperate-to-mingle crowds myself. Apr 07, Ranjani Rao rated it liked it. One more in the ever-growing genre of Indian chick-lit, this book has one strength. The novel breezily captures the life of the protagonist, Aisha Bhatia, almost thirty, very single and surrounded by friends who are in a similar situation.

Most of the book is devoted to the single-minded pursuit or discussion of booze, cigarettes, available men, not necessarily in that order. Aisha's best friends,a very available and always on the look out, Misha and Anushka, undergoing the throes of d One more in the ever-growing genre of Indian chick-lit, this book has one strength. Aisha's best friends,a very available and always on the look out, Misha and Anushka, undergoing the throes of divorce, provide able support to her angst as she works in a fancy hotel with its dark underpinnings reserved for the rich and the minions who serve them.

It is not clear what the other two girls do for a living as they brunch at five-start hotels, discuss expensive shiatsu massages and consume copious amounts of branded liquor. Comic relief is also provided by a pair of gay characters who appear to be in a monogamous and committed relationship while the straight women ogle every specimen of the male species.

Of course, there is Aisha's consistent love interest, the hunky NRI Karan who has all the required attributes of a eligible bachelor and the multiple unfortunate liaisons of the intrepid Misha to spice up the narrative.

The women seem be connoisseurs of wine but can't tell daals apart. Their redeeming feature is their closeness and camaraderie. The novel is light-hearted and fun, with the devil-may-care attitude of the urban youth that laughs at tradition but is not averse to clinging to weird gurus and rituals when the situation demands.

It is well-written but by no means a literary marvel. What saves the book from being mediocre is the irreverent humour that makes light of every dark situation, including the majestic institution of marriage.

Dec 13, Pooja Banga rated it liked it. I needed a light read after a heavy WW2 novel and this came in handy. An easy breezy read of light entertainment. There were, however, two points that I really didn't like - always considering that it was only a chic-flic: One moment she hates him and suddenly they are boyfriend and girlfriend? A few more details would have been good.

Same goes for the ending which comes across rush I needed a light read after a heavy WW2 novel and this came in handy. Same goes for the ending which comes across rushed at best. Suddenly out of nowhere everything falls into place. I know this is a fun happy-end kind of book but again, a little more story would have been good here.

Overall, don't spend your money but if you get a chance, why not pick it up. Sep 08, Lavanya Nair rated it liked it. Finished reading it finally.

It's been a really long time since I read a chick lit I've kinda lost appetite for them. All the more difficult to choose one from umpteen ectypes. They all look like clones of their western counterparts. A ten on ten in the humour department Phew! A ten on ten in the humour department but not quite satisfied with the content. Chick with substance-that's how I like it. Jun 14, Ellie rated it really liked it. The Indian Bridget Jones, only wittier and funnier!

Bridget Jones is a good story, but Almost Single is better in a lot of ways. Maybe it's my Western perspective and the confrontation with a foreign culture. I personally very much enjoyed this book, though it was an obligatory course reading.

The story is light, fluffy, heartwarming, witty and funny. There are tims when you laugh out loud with Aisha and then moments when you'd like to slap her Her mum, cousin and aunty and friends give the r The Indian Bridget Jones, only wittier and funnier! Her mum, cousin and aunty and friends give the right amount of spice to it. I'd really recommend to read it, especially as a light summer read. Jan 28, Kannan Ranganathan rated it it was ok.

I bought this book while waiting at the airport and wanted something that is not too serious. Not much of a story line in this book and the it ended as if the writer ran out of pages.

An alright book to pass the time with during lunch break at work. I have a soft spot for this branch of chick lit and even though I'll likely forget the whole story in a few days, it was still cute even if predictable and generic.

Not my theme. Dec 25, Naughty Kitty rated it it was ok. Recommend it for a one time read. Fun at some parts but majorly predictable. Story doesn't stay with you. Forgot about it in a couple of days.

Sep 02, Punit Sahani rated it really liked it. Fancy, Funny, Chic, and off course bitchy.

Mar 19, Jixcy Joseph rated it really liked it. A hilarious read through. Mar 28, Resham Tharani rated it it was ok. There cant be any spoilers cuz the plot is very predictable. Definitely a light read but don't expect too much in terms of story line. Jul 03, Shubhangi Dongre rated it it was amazing. Relatable for any young indian girl. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed. About Advaita Kala. Advaita Kala.

I am a hotelier by profession and have worked and studied in India and abroad. I have a kid sister who is a lawyer from the London School of Economics; I live at home with my parents and a St Bernard.

I have, however, been in Delhi for nearly two years now, which is a record of sorts for the recent past. I travel extensively.

Every month, possibly for half the month, I am out of town. What inspired you to write Almost Single and when did you decide to really sit yourself down and start on it? I have always written but it has been a very private endeavour, mostly an attempt to make sense of the world around me.

The idea for Almost Single germinated as a result of some of the experiences that surrounded me. The rapid way in which the concepts of love and courtship are evolving and continue to do so. As for sitting myself down and writing, well, I can be quite obsessive and do one thing and nothing else, and then there are days when I would go nowhere near the book.

I need to disconnect and feel that urge within me to start writing again, some sort of trigger. How much of your work has been inspired by your own life and experiences? What has been the reaction of your friends and family to your book? I have great friends and family, and their support has been tremendous. I kid around sometimes saying that I have the strongest sales force because I have friends all over the country and they are totally tracking the book. But they are just happy that I went out there and did what I wanted to do and the book came into being, since getting published can be tough.

What kind of books do you like to read? I am an avid reader and have a particular liking for the suspense genre, right from my Nancy Drew days to Agatha Christies, and the present conspiracy theorist books.

I also read lots of biographies, I am a bit of a history enthusiast. I love books on the Mughal Era, historical or fictionalised accounts on the Taj Mahal are always welcome. I get into phases and then read books specific to that style or genre. Did any other work inspire you to write your book? How did you go about wr Books by Advaita Kala.
