Single in the City - Sushmita Bose
Well the bottom line is I have not been able to go as of yet but thats one of the reasons why I picked up this book.
a collection of the eponymous column that Sushmita Bose wrote for Hindustan Times. Well column or no column I wanted to a woman's view on the place thats allegedly not safe for women. The book is a light hearted take on the issues any person who has moved to a new place has to deal with. Having worked in the IT industry I have seen many of my out of town colleagues go through lot of the stuff described in the book. Oh yes there is definitely that Delhi flavor too and I think its just the right amount.
This book is definitely not for the people who read hardcore intellectual books nor does it have a thrilling plot that keeps u gripped. But one thing i can say that it is for the people who want to do some light read after a stressful and hectic week! So what if it sounds like Sex and the City, it actually shows that for an Indian woman life is not just about Labels and Love. Theres a lot more to it. And the illustrations are interesting too.
As for me I still do want to go to Delhi! So what if I'm not single any more!
