Get rich through marriage
8 January, 2014
A continuation of the authors’ previous book, OF COURSE, I LOVE YOU, the story of 4 young fresh graduates, narrated by Debashish Roy, a senior intern in a major financial institution, mentoring the fresh interns, along with his gorgeous love Avantika.
Storyline: Four fresh graduates Abhijeet, Saurav, Garima and Shruti get through their college placement interviews and join the Hyderabad corporate office of Silverman Financial, a giant in the industry. Coming from different financial and emotional backgrounds, all of them dream of having a successful and lavish careers. But they are greeted by the tough working environment of the organization with equally tough bosses to work with. They struggle to keep up to the organization’s expectations and get frustrated with the way their superior exploits the fresh female interns sexually. Shruti, the poorest of all, struggles to keep her job to meet her parents’ thirst for money. She is misunderstood by her other three friends to have slept with her boss to keep her job and breaks away from the group. In the midst of her loneliness and drunken state, she encounters Rishab, the owner of a lavish night club and heir to a vast business empire. Rishab gets impressed by the simplicity and humble background of Shruti only to fall in love with her. She finally reunites with her friends, after they realize their mistake and also fulfills her cherished wish of marrying a rich guy. Abhijeet and Garima marry, while Saurav finds Riya (ex-girlfriend of Abhijeet). All to end in a happy note of living rich until they find a better partner.
Positives: Young dreams of finding a career that makes one financially stable is worth observing. Though today’s young generation know very well what they want, the book depicts how they are capable of making or breaking their lives, without depending on their elders. Interesting book if one wants to know how corporate culture exploits the young and needy. Sexual harassment of female employees by male bosses is well elicited. A good entertainer for the young, who are looking for something to read on love and sex.
Negatives: The book has a filmy touch. Dreaming big is not a crime but means to achieve that dream is what counts. Sex and relationship seem to be in the air and very casual in today’s youth, as per the author….as easy as one changes clothes. They are forgetting the point that such relationships become a big problem once the married life partner comes to know about it, later, unless he or she is equally involved in similar acts. Infatuation rather than true love seems to be rampant. The author seems to have experienced similar environment and has a halo effect on his writings. Possibilities of youth adopting easy method of getting rich through marriage.
