'The problem is the small print in my struggle for a divorce; as with everything in my life, it always reads 'subject to my mother's permission.' And since my mother was not going to give me permission to divorce in a hurry, I was relegated to being an armchair divorcee. But Indian parents will never voluntarily give their children permission to get divorced or have a live-in relationship or conceive a child by any means other than Immaculate Conception which, of course, would only take place after the child is married. So I decided, after two years of being separated, to stop waiting for my parents' elusive permission, and to take the initial steps in the painful journey myself. In this process, I was also branded a 'feminist', which in their view is marginally worse than being a terrorist...' The Diary of a Reluctant Feminist is a profoundly funny chronicle of a young woman's attempt to get divorced as - opposed more by her own parents than her in-laws and her ex - she struggles to explain the flimsy
grounds of incompatibility to her disapproving, old-fashioned, middle-class Punjabi family. Warm, humorous, sad and wise, this is a book for all those who have ever dreaded telling their parents an uncomfortable truth about themselves.

Bhavna Bhavna is a Certified Public Accountant, a full-time writer and mother of two.

She has come to realize how difficult it is to do so in middle-class India.
