My Review – The Recession Groom by Vani


Well, just like my usual start I was amazed when I finished reading this book.. The story revolves around main character Parashuraman who is born in a Hindu Punjabi family and was settled in Canada. The other characters were his Sister, his aunt and his cousin sisters Tia and Ana.

He works in a MNC in Canada called Vezza as an IT Specialist. On his peak days he gets bombarded with marriage alliances though he was least bothered. His Sister Ragini tries to fix him up with a South Indian family  while his aunt with a daughter of a multi millionaire from US. Though he did not liked the former but fell in love with the latter.

When the proposal with the US Hindu girl was fixed, something bad happens. Yes, Parashuraman was laid off despite his stupendous performance and what happens in the end is an unexpected one – though I would say it is a Perfect Ending.

The author has beautifully captured the essence of family bonding, culture and tradition while also brought out the feelings of a guy in an exceptional way which I feel is a positive one this book has to over since these days jealousy is wide spread and family bonding seems to be a rarity.

I could also very well relate the feeling of a bachelor with his sister and aunt since I also has a sister and few of the incidents had happened in my life as well, though not all, luckily. This book hasn’t got any negatives at least for me for sure since I live with my parents and my sibling stays just in the next apartment. This gives a perfect family bonding in my personal life. This story also emphasize on being focused in life and learn to compromise which can make your life, a real cake walk or a smooth one – which I think will be agreed by any one beyond doubt!!

I could also see the influence of Tamil in few places and being a Chennaite, it gives me a pleasant feeling by default though my mother tongue is a different language 🙂
