The Ex-Factor book be like – Do you want to know, what it is like to be talk first and think later person? Then the main character, Oindrilla Roy, is. She describes her family as a perfect Bengali family. The beginning of this book explains the above statement.
The Ex-Factor: The Beginning
It all started with a high-pitched tone of her mother in an unearthly hour about the maid who ran away two days back and was not willing to work in a Bengali family and so was the cook! Now this has got to her mother’s nerves. Her parents were working in a high office for the government.
Oinks (as she is referred by her friends) contributes to the house and heads to the office. She doesn’t happen to be talkative around the office so gets along with only one of her colleagues, Rajat. At EOFA, for a project, she has to go to Shillong along with others. And just before she thought this was the biggest news she would get, one more awaited her. Her best friend Sweety and Divya were seeing each other.
The Ex-Factor: The Chaos
As Oinks and her mother are headed to Kolkata to visit her Mamu’s family, and during her flight, her mother being the usual Mom was sunaoing. She tried to look who was that fairly dashing man sitting next to her mom. and when finally, they landed she knew that he was Vivek! Her ex! He is someone who had to study Korean in the first place! He greeted her and she was more in shock that she gave a wage answer.
As they reach her Mamu’s house, after a couple of days there, her baby cousin, Ankitha gives her another shock, by telling her she is in love and will text you soon. This is when they have to leave, her mom for Delhi to take care of her kutta’s and Oinks to Shillong.
Little did she know that her ex would be her colleague! They both have many awkward situations but try to be more civilized around the other team members. Seeing each other has created a sense of the old love being back and trying to get the differences off. On top of this Sweety and Divya eloped to Shillong and so did Ankitha in Cal.
The Ex-Factor: Happy Ending?
She guff’s off many times after she thinks he is engaged and wants to distance herself. Then her office buddy Rajat who was being friendly finally expressed his feelings and got dumped. Oh, by the way, Vivek’s engagement was called off by him!
After so much drama from both and also from Sweety-Divya, she gathered the courage to talk to him. All she did was express how she felt and ran off to the emergency stairs. And then comes the time, he too was in love with the same old person!
They were always in love, and tried to move on but never really did. As truly said, Love in the time of Chaos comes so true with Oindrilla and Vikek!
