About the Author

Nandini Krishnan is a journalist, playwright and humorist based in Chennai, which shestill calls Madras'. Her chief qualification for writing this book is that, for as long as shecan remember, her mother has been taking her to weddings when she wasn't in the mood tocook. Nandini's chief motive for writing the book is the idea of being able to tell relativeswho ask if she's thought about marriage, Marriage? Ha, I wrote the book on it!' Her idea ofan arranged marriage derived mainly from her family's frantic-and failed- attempts to sether up with a suitable prospect' every time she was between boyfriends. That idea changedin the process of speaking to interviewees for this book.After dabbling in teaching, radio, television, print and online media, she wished she couldget paid to watch movies, read books, speak to writers, and whine about the state of thenation. Thankfully, there is space for reviewers and columnists in the media, and her wishcame true.
