Eminent Author, Rashmi Kumar launched her book Hooked, Lined & Single at Crossword, Pune. RJ Smita, seasoned radio jockey released the book. Hooked, Lined & Single revolves around Alafia Singh and her efforts in finding a suitable husband. During this process, she comes across a lot of men, falls for some and some fall for her. But getting the right man remains a distant reality. Through this fascinating anecdotal journey, the author attempts to throw light on the funny, poignant and romantic encounters she’s had with several men–while in the process rediscovering her own self and realising that she does not really need a marriage or a man to make her life happier or more fulfilling.
Talking about the launch Rashmi Kumar said, “Pune has always been extremely close to my heart. Spending time here is like revisiting childhood memories with my grandparents. Pune figured heavily in my first book. Once again I owe this city for the many expediences it gave me because of which I could become an author.”
An elated RJ Smita said, “Our society is quick in typecasting individuals and specially a woman who’s single. Rashmi’s keen observation of this mindset reflects very well in her book Hooked, Lined and Single. She has aptly caught the essence of challenges that a single girl of today’s age faces. This is her second book after Stilettos in the Newsrooom, which is certainly going to be a treat for readers and I assure, many of us will end up getting”hooked” on to it. My best-est wishes!”
