About the Book :
Twenty-five-year-old Jinni lives in Mumbai, works in a hip animation studio and is perfectly happy with her carefree and independent existence. Until her bossy grandmother shows up and announces that it is Jinni’s 'duty' to drop everything and come and contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from their sleepy hometown, Bittora. Of course Jinni swears she won't. But she soon ends up swathed in cotton saris and frumpy blouses, battling prickly heat, corruption and accusations of nymphomania as candidate Sarojini Pande, a daughter of the illustrious Pande dynasty of Pavit Pradesh. And if life isn’t fun enough already, her main opposition turns out to be Bittora ex-royal, Zain Altaf Khan – an irritatingly idealistic though undeniably lustworthy individual with whom Jinni shares a complicated history…
Enlivened by Chauhan’s characteristic brand of wicked humour and sexy romanticism, this is a rollicking new tale of young India.
About the Author :
Anuja Chauhan s first book, The Zoya Factor, was a national bestseller and is being made into a film by Shah Rukh Khan s Red Chillies Entertainment. Anuja works in advertising and has sold colas, chips, chocolates and cell-phones for a living. Her contribution to the nation s real politik is mostly limited to serving tea and being seen and not heard in her mother-in-law s drawing room.

The second book by Chauhan is another fun-pack of humorous jargon and a satire on the political system, coupled with the usual elements of a rom-com work. The characters of "ammaji" and "the crack team" gives you a fit of laughter with their amusing lingo! Though the book lacks the charm of the author's debut novel, The Zoya Factor. Infibeam's delivery has been pretty good and worthy of appreciation in shipping the books to interior towns in reasonable time.
