The Great Indian Matrimonial Tamasha

Author Name: Himika Ganguly | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

She looked at her watch for the sixth time and prayed silently for the eighth time. Ten minutes to call it an hour.

Her mother wouldn’t go to sleep happily tonight. Her father would once again get sandwiched in a nasty debate between the two most important women in his life.But then again, such is living.


Welcome to the life of Ms Bengal Rani who has set out on one of the most arduous tasks of her life, which is finding a man to marry. Actually happily marry. Now, the most obvious option for her is the booming online shaadi bazaar of our country.

Problem solved? Not really. In fact, it gets more twisted here on.

A day dreamer, Mr Telecom Raja, with a bucket list so bizarre that can be safely named cringe worthy, or a narcissist Aeroplane Mistri who meets every girl with a pre-conceived notion that she is already smitten. These and more are specimens of the prospective bridegrooms who Bengal Rani is encountering. And with raised eyebrows realising a simple fact of life —All men are not from Mars. Some escaped Black Hole and need to be sent back to it. On urgent basis!

Are these the experiences of only one woman? No, for a book like this, a lot of interesting, intelligent and slightly frustrated women need to meet…gossip…and bitch.

Are these experiences 100% real? I leave that on you to decide. But then, I rarely lie.

So welcome to my Tamasha—a Pandora’s Box of extreme encounters!

Himika Ganguly

Himika Ganguly is a marketing and communications professional who has done extensive work in the fields of brand building, content writing, events management, social media management and public relations for organizations that are leaders in their respective sectors. However, writing is her most important forte, thanks to her upbringing that helped inculcate the love of reading and a prior stint with a broadcasting channel where she was an integral part of the creative team. The Great Indian Matrimonial Tamasha is Himika’s first published work and undoubtedly closest to her heart. Along with that, she is finishing two more novels and gearing up to put them for public viewing soon.

Himika is also a visiting faculty in management colleges. You can follow Himika on Twitter @himika1711 and at www.facebook.com/himika.ganguly on Facebook. Alternatively you can get in touch with her on himi.1711@gmail.com.
