Book Description

 The problem is the small print in my struggle for a divorce, as with everything in my life, it always reads subject to my mothers permission and since my mother was not going to give me permission to divorce in a hurry, I was relegated to being an armchair divorcee. But Indian parents will never voluntarily give their children permission to get divorced or have a live-in relationship or conceive a child by any means other than Immaculate Conception which, of course, would only take place after the child is married. So I decided, after two years of being separated, to stop waiting for my parent's elusive permission and to take the initial steps in the painful journey myself. In this process, I was also branded a feminist, which in their view is marginally worse than being a terrorist. The Diary of a Reluctant Feminist is a profoundly funny chronicle of a young woman's attempt to get divorced as opposed more by her own parents than her in-laws and her ex, she struggles to explain the flimsy grounds of incompatibility to her disapproving, old-fashioned, middle-class Punjabi family. Warm, humorous, sad and wise, this is a book for all those who have ever dreaded telling their parents an uncomfortable truth about themselves.
