Hey, hello, hi! Here I am (a month later) with a review for When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. So let's begin, shall we?
Although they are so different, they happen to get into the same web developing summer program and somehow start actually getting along (and are those love sparks between them?).
What I like
The other message is that tradition is important. I loved the way we are introduced to the Indian culture and the believes Indians have. Yes, arranged marriage is still a thing and it sounds ridiculous. But we are shown that it really is something practical that may or may not work, yet it is never obligatory to marry the person your parents have chosen for you. They just recommend you a husband/wife. However, you make the choice.
What I dislike
Who I recommend it for
I think When Dimple met Rishi is the perfect summer to autumn read. This book is so cute it makes you smile, but it is not overly sweet or cheesy. If you are looking for a cute contemporary, where cultural diversity is evident, or a book that is funny and makes you think at the same time, then When Dimple met Rishi is just for you.
