A couple's tryst with the madness of a large intrusive family, interfering relatives, nosy neighbours and disapproving doctors is the subject of a new book which is a hilarious take on the Indian urban life.
"Koi Good News?" is a funny private journal of a highly public pregnancy by Zarreen Khan.
When Mona and Ramit did the unthinkable in the family by remaining childless for four years, one question that they battled day-in and day-out was: "Koi good news? (Is there any good news?)"
The truth, however, is that Ramit and Mona had been trying to conceive for the past one year.
"Finally, aided by the wine at their highly glamorous neighbours' party, Mona gets pregnant. And so begins a crazy journey - complete with interfering relatives, nosy neighbours, disapproving doctors, and absolutely no privacy," the book's blurb says.
According to publisher HarperCollins India, "Koi Good News?" has been optioned for a feature film by a major production house.
According to Khan, her book basically is the "story of a lot of us".
"This is the Indian urban life, laid out in all its hilarious glory warts and all," she says.
