Book Review: Those Pricey Thakur Girls

Hello Friends, on popular demand is today's Book Review of "Those Pricey Thakur Girls" By Anuja Chauhan. The book, set in 1980's India, is a story of an upper-middleclass Rajput family of five alphabetically named sisters. The story mainly revolves around Debjani Thakur, the fourth sister and her career as a newsreader at DeshDarpan (read Doordarshan) and her current lovelife with Dylan Singh Sekhawat, who is a news reporter with India Post. The novel is not just about their romance, it also touches upon the anti-Sikh riots and independence of journalism during those items. If you remember growing up in India in late 1980's the book will make you nostalgic of "Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi" comedy tv show, news reader Salma Sultan's signature "rose tucked in her hair", Doordarshan's infamous depressing music and most awaited, Chitrahaar every Friday. The book is a nice read but I personally prefer Anuja Chauhan's first book Zoya Factor over this one. There is also a TV series started based of this book called "Dilli Wali Thakur Gurls".
