Independent, young Ananya was madly in love with Arjun, she plummeted from despair into a deep well of grief when Arjun decided to leave her. This was her first encounter with the lopsided ‘Modern’ Indian society where dating someone is fine but marriage is still considered as marriage between two families and not the marriage of two individuals who are in love.

After her break-up, when everyone else was focusing on her ‘marriageable age’ she decided to move to America for a work opportunity. People criticized her for making career a priority when being almost 30 years old single girl she should be JUST thinking about getting married. One of her friends accused her of being feminist, too bold and egoistic and asked her to be more ‘Indian’ to be a fit for marriage. But she stood up for herself and refused to settle for less. She wanted to know the guy well before committing to marriage, so she decided to try the contemporary way of Matrimony Portals to find a suitable match over traditional arranged marriages. It sounded perfect and an intelligent way to find love, get married and live happily-ever-after but her experience with the website wasn’t something she was hoping for. From some fake profiles to people who wanted to have just question answer sessions; to people who were looking for just a hook-up to some male chauvinist pigs -- She interacted with all different kinds of people and what happened in the end was more shocking than anything else.

The story is sometimes sarcastic, sometimes sad and sometimes funny but is inspired by the story of every young, independent woman who is still single but who refuses to settle for less.
