If you are a single woman in your thirties, fed up with the singles scene and tired of single dinner parties, exhausted by phone calls, e-profiles, and forced dinner conversation. You fear you will never marry. What do you do? Read this memoir for a refreshing new look at matrimony.
Anita Jain, a New York-based Indian-American journalist, is just such a woman. Even her parents despair of her and have logged her details on to an Indian dating interne site.
