Two States- The Story of My Marriage

Two States – The Story of My Marriage by Chetan Bhagat is a novel which was written by his own inspiration from his life, but the novel is a fictional work of his.

Before starting the book, I started watching this (2 States) movie by Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor, thinking of a 3-Idiots movie first.

Paralyzed Marriage Institution in Punjabi Culture

Doing marriage in Punjabi society has become one of the toughest tasks. It is due to some rites, which, according to people, are the compulsory elements that must be a part of a marriage.
