When Dimple Met Rishi

Recently , I’ve completed reading the book ,” When Dimple Met Rishi ” . I know what your thinking , “why would a 25 year old women read this book” ? The answer is simple I love cute stories and this story is cute and unassuming .  In most romance stories the girl is fragile and soft , however in this story Dimple is fierce she doesn’t agree with traditions and she’s not afraid to stand up for herself  and that’s not to say she doesn’t have a soft moment because she does .Dimple is multifaceted she’s feisty but she’s caring and even if she doesn’t say aloud she’s aware of her actions  . Rishi is a quiet guy , he wants to uphold traditions and he loves his culture even down to his use of  “Gods ” instead of ” God”  because of the fact he’s polytheist,  however  this does have its downsides . Rishi doesn’t want to disappoint his parent even though he has an entire other passion he could pursue , he wont because he feels it would disappoint his family and what they want from him so he can be a good Indian son. What makes this story brilliant for me is they fact that as this story progresses you can see that the personalities of the characters aren’t just black and white . I love the use of Hindi through out the story , I also loved how the Desi culture was expressed through out the story . “When  Dimple met Rishi ” modernized a traditional when opposites attract love story and gave it culture. I really loved this book , it made me smile and kept me engaged so that I could read it continuously. This book doesn’t run from its cultural roots , it makes its heritage known . I recommend this book to anyone who wants to smile and unwind. – Myriesha
