Red Turban White Horse by Nandini Bajpai turned out to be a really cute read. It has a nice story with loads of characters and a protagonist who is trying to juggle everything and everyone. Every once in a while I enjoy reading clean and sweet young adult books and Red Turban White Horse was just that.Mini is our heroine. She lives with her Dad who has just started his tech company. Mini's mother passed away seven years ago and after that the role to take care of her father has somehow fallen up [...]
I just finished reading the delightful debut YA novel “Red Turban White Horse” written by the local author Nandini Bajpai that is set in the Metrowest (of Boston) and is full of thinly disguised local references. For someone, like myself, living in the region, this is a tasty treat! The heroine of the story (Padmini “Mini” Kapoor) is a resourceful, caring teen who comes in charge of orchestrating her older sisters wedding while at the same time a hurricane is barreling down the east coas [...]
Red Turban White Horse is a new Young Adult novel by Nandini Bajpai. We are soo excited to have been part of the Book Launch and were able to get a pre release copy yesterday. Our young readers immediately started on the book and here is their review.Mini Kapoor is a 17 year old girl in the USA whose sister Vinnie is getting married. Both her Dad and her sister are too busy to make the arrangements for the wedding, so Mini takes it upon herself to plan the wedding with a limited budget. Most of [...]
Red Turban White Horse was a rather sweet and endearing piece of YA Lit. If you like your teenage heroines to be savvy, street-smart, wise beyond their years, non-whiny, blessed with an artistic flair/ fashion sense/ Etsy shop, then Mini Kapoor ticks all the right boxes. Imagine a teen Sonam Kapoor, if you will. The fact that Mini appears to be a Harry Potter fan, (numerous references pepper the books) worked for me.The story revolves around the run-up to the Great yet classy (and homespun) Indi [...]
A teenager plans a Big Fat Indian Wedding in Boston- with Hurricane Irene headed for the area the very day of the wedding.How can I NOT be interested?Seventeen-year-old Mini Kapoor, design aspirant, dog-lover, fashion expert, and Potterhead (so relatable!) has a sister getting married. Unfortunately, Megha Kapoor, her mother, passed away from cancer years ago, Vinod Kapoor, her father, is busy running his tech startup, and the bride herself, Vini Kapoor is currently doing her residency, as is he [...]
I loved the book. Yes, it’s a little too happily-ever-after, but it seems like we all need happy books at times – all YA books don’t need to be full of angst. Nandini has a real talent for writing people – even peripheral characters stood out, I could imagine them as real people, not props to the main characters. The casually urban, upper middle-class lifestyles portrayed, the good-humored stereotyping of desis (and Asians), men who participate in family life and aren’t one note charac [...]
This book is amazing. Nandini is the Sophie Kinsella of Indian chick lit.This one is a tribute to sisterhood, romance and the great Indian wedding.I am happy that an Indian author wrote such a marvellous piece of literature.
I don't usually read these kind of books. But the overall essence plus the Harry Potter references were hard to resist. It's not the best book, but the light way it had tread Indian culture and American culture both is really good. It's a great read, a light one for sure. The themes of love, moving on, getting over loves ones, cancer awareness etc it's not a romance novel, but it has romance at some of its finest.
Planning a wedding is no piece of cake.cially if you have to orchestrate the details all by yourself. Mini Kapoor, the heroine of RTWH is planning a wedding for her older sister. After their mom's demise 7 years ago, they have been raised by their techie father, who is far removed from the world of desi weddings. The older sister and groom are medical students with very little time for wedding planning.For planning a wedding, you need warmth to go the extra mile and get the best for your loved o [...]
I picked up an Young Fiction book after a long time and I must admit I did enjoy reading it :) The book's blurb reads: "Can a teenager plan a Big Fat Indian Wedding - in America? It's been several years since mom died-and dad's raised Mini to know more about computers, calculus, and cars than desi weddings-but ever since Mini saw the jewelry mom left them she's wanted her sister to have the wedding mom would have planned. Dad's tech start-up means a shoe-string budget, but Mini has her old Mini [...]

I read this book in 2013. We were a bunch of 11th graders who attended the launch ceremony. I was immediately appealed, bought the book, got it signed, and started reading that very night. At that point of time, it was refreshing. I was just getting over my Sparks, Steele, Archer etc phase. Here was a novel whose protagonist I could relate to. It had the cars, the designer dresses, the romance, the friendship, Harry Potter references, Bollywoodish feels. It's a book aimed majorly at the pre to m [...]
