Here we can see the hurdels in love and this is very true in the case of Krish and Ananya. The main focus is about cultural contradictions , Inter-caste marriage is still a taboo in India.
He deals with the grim realities of life and the difficulties faced by the young generation for the love marriage. Both look down upon each other for different reasons.

In the Punjabi household for marring a girl with a big dowry while in a south Indian household the importance is given to education and success. Both of them have to struggle and faced a lot of problems in order to convert their love affairs into marriage.
In the first scene in the novel reveals obvious distinctiveness between South and North India in the mess where Krish Malhotra sees Ananya and she starts a argument about the cuisine: And when Krish offers her to go for the lunch, now the cultural clash becomes even more obvious from this conversation of Ananya and Krish: But you should http: What about you, commoner? I grew up in Delhi. And I have no idea of my caste, but we do eat chicken.
The hero Krish tries to make his mother understand the sensitivity of the situation and suggests her to call them Tamilian,.
She makes a racist comment: Chetan Bhagat also highlights the linguistic and cultural alienation that North Indians feel when they go to southern region of India.
He also points out the feeling of cultural contradictions which Krish feels when he is exposed to South India: It had the usual Indian elements like autos, packed public buses, hassled traffic cops and tiny shops that sold groceries, fruits, utensils, clothes or novelty.
However, it did feel different. First, the sign in every shop was in Tamil. The Tamil font resembles those optical illusion puzzles that give you a headache if you stare at them long enough. Tamil women, all of them, wear flowers in their hair. The city is filled with film posters. The heroes are fat, balding, have thick moustaches and the heroine next to them is a ravishing beauty. The four of them surrounded me like biddies from a low-budget Kollywood film.
They started moving around me slowly. One man http: He had a turban — a Sardar-ji in Chennai was akin to spotting a polar bear in Delhi.
He had come out to place a cover on his car. Tingles of relief ran down my spine. Krishna had come to save Draupadi. Uncle looked at me.
The drivers gave their version of the story to him. Uncle spoke to them in fluent Tamil. It is fascinating to see a Sardar-ji speak in Tamil. While a North Indian officer comments on South-Indians: Another South Indian character in the novel shows his hatred towards North Indian by saying: Ten years back I had offers from multinational banks. But I stayed loyal to my bank. And I was patient to get my turn to be GM. Through these examples, Chetan Bhagat sincerely advocates national integrity, mirrors the issue of racism and submits that this is a threat to national unity.
Despite all these Chetan Bhagat stand at every place to criticize and mock the narrow mindedness of typical Indian whether it is of South-Indians or North Indian.
But the Indian in me is quite happy. And more than anything, the human being in me is happy. The real message of the novel is to give more importance to human relationship based on human emotions and sentiments.
