KOLKATA, India - July 21, 2014 - PRLog -- The author Shilpi Popli holds a Master's degree in English Literature and is also a TESOL/TEFL certified teacher from Oxford Seminars (USA). She has mentored students and professionals from all over the world. She is an entrepreneur and a budding writer.

‘Brides Wanted’ is a light-hearted story of four neighborhood friends belonging to the same age group. Their families go nuts, groom hunting. Our typical society and mindset makes the whole process an enormous task. The entire wedding circus takes a toll on many, as the prime focus is upon- hit music, color of the canopy, count of savories in the menu, gifts, ambience, venue, invitation cards, sweet boxes, and tons of related flash.

It seems that the weddings are overpowering the marriages. Can something be done about it?

The story highlights the unending expectations and demands from both ends. In traditional Indian weddings, food, clothes, decoration, gifts, etc have become the main focus in order to make it a pompous affair. There is so much money and sweat involved in the making of a wedding that it takes away from the real essence. The wedding process has become more like a circus than a holy ritual. Show-off and fake lavishness surrounding the whole drill, hampers the soul of a marriage.

The author has brilliantly captured the substance of the complete act in a funny manner.  She has carved out a wonderful story that begins with groom hunting and culminates with exchange of vows. Incidents she has mentioned here are those which most of us can relate to. It is a simple story but the satirical tone makes it all the more interesting. While reading the story many times readers are sure to get nostalgic. The story has been narrated more like a script, short chapters makes it an interesting and a quick read.
