Author Reenita Hora discusses her book, Operation Mom: My Plan to Get My Mom a Life and a Man. This YA rom-com novel features a 17-year-old native of Mumbai and her mother, a middle-aged Punjabi woman. Reenita notes that this book is a work of fiction, not a self-help guide, and is more comedy than romance. In fact, it is inspired by the comedy of her everyday existence and the zany, feisty and fabulous women in her life. Her goal was to write a comedic story that would be universal, while still showcasing Indian characters and various aspects of their lives—especially the everyday humor.
