Book title: Those Pricey Thakur Girls
Author: Anuja Chauhan
Publisher: Harper Collins India
Humour is a tricky art and most people fail to employ it intelligently in their works, be it cinema, sitcoms, musical lyrics or illustrations. The art of writing is no different and here too, humour seems to revolve around the farcical, with borrowed references from the commonest elements available such as gender inequalities, insecure politicos, or simply the society we inhabit. So when you chance upon a book that stirs up genuine chuckles and at times, uninhibited laughter without the slightest trace of contempt, you welcome it with arms wide open. Anuja Chauhan’s latest, ‘Those Pricey Thakur Girls’ is one such book on the stands that promises an entertaining read to those who don’t fancy brainy literature.
