And I am quite impressed with the rediff guys. There was some mistake in the blurb of the book on the rediff website, as given to them by the publisher. We sent a mail to them and they have responded promptly!

The details...

What's the book called?
Knots and No Crosses – Heartbreak after heartbreak, he still dreams of a perfect wedding...

What's the book about? Authorspeak
The wave of ‘feminism’ has swept over the world and empowered women to shout out from rooftops. They are forever harnessing attention by drawing the mind towards a range of problems starting with PMS, labour pains and now the marital market. The marital market is unfair on the women of today!

The woman who had gotten into the car, without looking back once as he stood there on the empty streets outside the institute, nursing a broken heart."

Akkie’s relationships have followed a trial and error pattern. He finally meets the one woman who completes him. They both plan their ‘dream wedding’, only, the wedding turns out to be anything but a dream! As Akkie, tries to placate his agitated bride three days before their wedding, his past catches up with him, spelling disaster after disaster. The crunching blow, comes when the son of his first ever girlfriend calls Akkie ‘Papa’ in front of a room filled to capacity with the Bride’s family. The wedding gets called off. But Akkie knows, there is no one else for him, but her…
