About The Author: Rashmi Kumar is an Indian author. She was previously a journalist who worked for leading Indian newspapers, before moving to Canada in 2012. There, she found an opportunity to showcase her Indian literary work to the Canadian audience. Rashmi Kumar’s other work is: .
If you are a woman in your 30s, and are yet unmarried or deserted or divorced, living in India will make you belong to a category which finds extremely hard to find the right man to just be with. Such women will be labelled as cynical, and acquire disastrously special statuses such as unreasonable or demanding or chronically single or bossy! In this title, one such woman is pleading with God, asking the same question that might be resonating in the minds of the rest of her kind – “where have I gone wrong?” Alafia Singh is on a similar journey, as she has set out to find a life partner for herself, but by following traditional methods. Will she be successful in her attempts?
Review: The cover is simple and pleasing. The title really makes you attracted to read the book. The blurb clearly tells you about a young woman who is single and searching for a groom. It’s really painful for a woman when she reaches in her 30’s and are unmarried or divorced and unable to find a perfect match and elders started criticizing you. That is what Rashmi has narrated in the book. The way Alafia is searching for a groom and find out different people is very humorous. I enjoyed reading it. Rashmi had narrated it wonderfully. It’s true you will find different people in a matrimonial site. Some are only interested in sex when they see a single woman. The characterization of the book was perfect. Each character played an important role . This book will make you hooked as per the title till the end and while reading it you will not at all feel bored. Each chapter will make you laugh and sometimes will make you sad. You will surely feel sad for Alafia. Your life will be miserable when you see your younger siblings getting married before you. Each girl who is single will surely relate to Alafia’s character. The end was a bit emotional. I would recommend everyone to read this book. A small book perfect to read with a coffee. All the best Rashmi. I loved your writing style that's why I purchased your first book and will read it..
Drawback: I wished Rashmi should make her find a perfect match in the end. Climax was short and I felt not a perfect ending.
