The weight jibes, confrontations with 'desi Jeeves', friends and their mothers-in-law and her reference to her husband as 'man of the house' and her son as 'the prodigal son' make this story so close to real life. If it hadn't been Twinkle Khanna who wrote this, most of the people won't even know about this crappy book but like I said at the beginning, talk about privilege. She shares her observations and her own experiences that I found funny may be for the first two pages but then everything fell flat. I think it's true when she says that Mrs Funnybones is "a bit like you and a lot like me" Maybe there's a Mrs Funnybones in all of us who we could channel sometimes to preserve our sanity! Though this sounds like most women's lives it is definitely not average (yearly vacations abroad and servants doing most of the work).

Pointing out at the girl on the right, who has her hand in a plaster, Twinkle said, "The girl with the broken arm is me- every year I would invariably be in a cast-many fractured bones-took that unpleasant factor and flipped it into a moniker that now makes me smile-Mrs Funnybones :). In these 26 chapters marked A-Z which is unique since she has managed to start every chapter with letter corresponding to the chapter number. At first, they will go just up your knee; then a month later, a bit higher and with each month that passes, they will go higher and higher, till they reach the ideal fit, whereby you lie down on your bed and pull the zip up. When you meet your gynaecologist at a party, he will always look shorter, till you realise that you normally see him when you are flat on your back and he is looming over between your legs. Mom says she hates festivals, wants to drink beer, ride her yellow scooter, and run over random people who burst crackers.Her wry, self-deprecating humour is so good, especially the various places she has lamented her name; but none is better than this incident which transpires when she is visiting her mother, Dimple. But, the book proves to be a light-hearted much-needed break for readers whose life is filled with heavy routine, nagging relatives, demanding jobs or marriage to laugh at nonsensical random stuff. While her writing quality isn't out of the ordinary, the messages she conveys are totally identifiable, if you're a married Indian woman with/without kids today. Still, I felt that it gets boring after some time but yeah, go for it if you need to get over some book hangover! Which isn’t as great as it may sound, even though I had a full n busy day at work and only allowed myself to read in the metro to work, at lunch, in the metro home and after a much despised 30 minutes of exercise.

The ladies are curvy, sometimes fat and not perfect, once again trying to win the readers through connection. Twinkle Khanna, born to famous film stars and married to one, is not someone you would empathise or identify with and yet her skill in her narrative lies in the fact that when you turn to the last page, that is exactly how you feel. She has arranged the chapters according to the 26 letters of the Alphabet, each one giving a glimpse into her thoughts, her insecurities, and some not-so-funny moments. But what makes it special is the casual way in which it addresses the human preoccupation with belonging–one that we all experience–be it to our parents, our careers, our bodies, our partners or their families. On a quiet December evening in 1989, a bored scanner chanced upon a report of a curious bedtime conversation between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles in which the current king made an important confession.Twinkle Khanna matches her tv show persona in her book with tongue in cheek remarks and colourful opinions. You can take on this book if you are in need a break, just to clear your mind and let go of everything else; you can actually finish reading this book in one sitting. However, this could be the beginning of seeing India’s likes to towards popular feminist humour books much to the likes of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling. A regular girl in her 20's with a day job as a software engineer, who loves crafting and exercising. You lose a child to an accident or an illness, and with a broken heart, you console yourself that you did your best, it’s perhaps God’s will, he has gone to a better place; but when your child decides that the life he has been given, the life where everything he knows is what you have taught him, is not worth living, how do you live with that?

Some of the jokes were not so original, you can predict ends of sentences; and the repeated use of the word 'blimey' didn't lend to the funniness either, though I do understand how she meant to use it at the end of every little mishap that happened on her day.When the picture surfaced on the web three years ago, Twinkle not just took notice of it but also revealed the fun fact about herself. Final Thoughts :- Hillarious for the most part, this light take on the daily grind of life will definitely bring a smile to your face. From parenting to feminism, from handling papparazzi's to Mom-in-Law, from tackling Man in the house to Karva Chauth, Twinkle treads on various topics quite gracefully! At an art exhibition recently, two patrons got into a fierce debate over the impact of artificial intelligence.
