Mrs. Funny Bones By Twinkle Khanna
Mrs. Funnybones: She’s Just Like You and a Lot Like Me is an Indian non – fiction Book, written by Twinkle Khanna. This book is really a stress buster and entertaining which depicts the typical Indian Family and Drama. It’s a story of a woman who is a mother of two, an ordinary version of the star, and someone who finds humor in the everyday situations that women in India face every day.
The book’s tagline, “She’s just like and a lot like me,” along with the celebrity author may make one wonder how a simple Indian household life can be compared to the luxurious life of someone like Twinkle Khanna. But that is part of the book’s charm. It isn’t fully the author’s autobiography, nor is it the traditional tell-all that celebrities frequently write.
Weight Loss By Upamanyu Chatterjee
Weight loss is the story of Bhola, an innocent and unremarkable man who falls for all the wrong people because of his near-crippling obsessions with sex and running.

He has degrading encounters with his landlady and a vegetable vendor-turned-nurse and her husband while in college. Later, he marries (a woman with a liquid gold voice), has a daughter, and feels he is on the verge of finding harmony and beauty. Then his history comes back to haunt him.
Through this compelling book, Upamanyu Chatterjee’s black and weird humor has never been more interesting.
