Half Girlfriend is a young adult romance novel set in Delhi and Dumraon, written by Chetan Bhagat. It is narrated through the voice of Madhav Jha, who hails from a small village called Dumraon in Bihar. The story follows Madhav's romantic journey with Riya Somani, who belongs to an English-speaking family in New Delhi. Despite being poor themselves, Madhav manages to get admission into St Stephens College on a scholarship; he meets Riya during his first game at college, where she attends as the cheerleader for her university team and her best friend Shreya (who later becomes Madhav's girlfriend).

After their first meeting at the basketball game, Madhav falls deeply in love with Riya but does not speak to or meet her again for three months because he cannot speak English properly yet (his father only found out about him going to college when one day he happened to overhear some people talking about it while waiting outside his clinic). So instead of trying to communicate with Riya himself right away like any average person would do if they had feelings for someone else, he decides instead that it would be better if someone else could help him improve his English skills so that he could talk happily with her without having any reservations whatsoever about doing so! And after three months of classes with this other classmate named Rohan Malhotra (who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend), Madhav visits Riya's house one day so that he can invite her out somewhere fun together without making any mistakes beforehand, like what usually happens when two people go on their first date ever before deciding whether or not they even want anything more than just friendship between each other afterward.

Half Girlfriend is a young adult coming-of-age love story by Chetan Bhagat.

As you may or may not know, Chetan Bhagat is the author of this novel. But what exactly is it?

It's a romance and coming-of-age tale set in India. It follows the story of Madhav Jha (who goes by "Mad"), an orphaned student at St. Teresa's College, Delhi University, who falls in love with Riya Somani, a wealthy girl from the United States who comes to study abroad for six months to work on her thesis on Indian culture and society.

The story begins with Riya's arrival in India, where she meets Madhav Jha, a student who is from Bihar.

Their romance is complicated because they are very much in love despite being from different backgrounds. It's a story about finding yourself and figuring out what matters most to you.

The story is narrated through the voice of Madhav Jha, who hails from a small Bihar village called Dumraon.

The story is narrated through the voice of Madhav Jha, who hails from a small Bihar village called Dumraon. The setting for most of the book is Delhi and its suburbs. It's set in 2013, a critical year for our country: Narendra Modi became prime minister, Facebook acquired Whatsapp (for $19 billion), and an Indian team won cricket's World Cup after 28 years.

But more importantly than all that: it's also when Chetan Bhagat was born! Let's not forget that this man has given us two movies (2 States and Kai Po Che) and several books—including Half Girlfriend—that have sold millions of copies worldwide over the last decade.

It's important to note that the story begins in February 2013 when Madhav Jha and Riya Somani (the novel's main characters) are still teenagers. The following month, during Delhi University's admission season, they meet again as students at St. Stephen's College, where he studies economics. She has chosen English literature because it is considered prestigious. Their relationship becomes complicated when Madhav wants to be more than just "friends with benefits";

Madhav has never been to Delhi before; this is his first time away from home. He lives with his uncle and aunt in a small room they rent to make money. Madhav falls in love with Riya at first sight and plans on making her his girlfriend as soon as possible so that they can be together forever (or at least until she dumps him).

But Madhav’s plan backfires when he finds out Riya isn’t interested in dating him because she doesn’t want to be tied down by any man.

Madhav has been a basketball player since the age of eight. His father taught him about Ayurveda, an ancient way of healing passed down from generation to generation in their village. Although he never intended to be an Ayurvedic doctor, Madhav feels he and everyone must know about this medicine because "it's what keeps us alive." He says that even though people may think they're too busy

Riya Somani is the female protagonist from a wealthy English-speaking family in New Delhi. She is a good student and serves as her college's cheerleader. Riya has a best friend named Shreya, who spends most of their time together.

Riya has two brothers – Gaurav and Kishan – who belong to an English-speaking family like hers, but they live in London, whereas she lives in India with her parents.

She loves basketball and plays it very well. Still, she doesn't want to play professionally because she feels that basketball is just a hobby and should not be taken seriously by anyone else!

Riya's family has a good relationship with their neighbors, the Somanis. The Somanis recently moved from Delhi, where they were selling fashion clothes.

Despite being poor, Madhav manages to get admission into St Stephens College on a scholarship.

Madhav invites Riya to spend the summer with him in his village, and she agrees. When Madhav arrives at her house, he is greeted by a visibly distressed Riya. Her father has just died of a heart attack, and all her relatives are telling her it's time to get married.

Riya escapes from the pressure and goes out on a walk with Madhav. She tells him she prefers being a 'half girlfriend' rather than his girlfriend.

Madhav falls in love with Riya at first sight but does not speak to her for the rest of the game.

Madhav is visibly smitten with Riya. He can't take his eyes off her, even when they're supposed to be playing cricket. She's so beautiful that all he can think about is how lucky Gaurav is and how much he would like to be friends with her boyfriend.

Madhav finally has a chance to speak with her when they both go for a snack run after the game ends. Unfortunately, it does not go well: Madhav stutters incoherently and ends up giving away that he likes her; Riya makes fun of him for being shy; she warns him not to talk about this again because it will bother Gaurav—and then she leaves him speechless in mid-sentence by saying "bye."

It's safe to say that Madhav does not get along well with women at first or second sight!

Madhav asks Rohan Malhotra, a well-known classmate from college, for help in improving his English so that he can talk to Riya without reservations. He then seeks out advice and assistance from other students as well.

Madhav: "My English is not good enough to talk to her."

Rohan: "But why don't you improve your English yourself?"

Madhav: "I don't have time for that since I'm already busy with other things." Rohan: "Then we should do some exercises together so that you can learn how to speak it properly. Let's start now!" Madhav: "Okay..."

The next day, Madhav and Rohan walked together to meet each other's family.

"Hey, bro! What's up?" Madhav asked when they were near their homes.

Rohan looked at him with a smile and replied: "Nothing much. Just waiting for someone special to come by." Madhav nodded while walking towards the door of his house.

After three months of classes with Rohan, Madhav visits Riya's house to invite her to watch him play basketball against another university team.

The game ends with a score of 8-9 in favor of Madhav’s team, and Riya cheers him on from the sidelines. After the game is over, Madhav asks her out for dinner at his favorite restaurant. She agrees to go, but only if he takes her on a date afterward.

Madhav is nervous about the game. He tries to speak English with Riya, but she ignores him by laughing at his poor English skills. Madhav tells her he loves her; she is embarrassed because of his poor English skills and offers a deal: she will teach him how to speak English if he teaches her how to play basketball at half court!

The next day, they go to a park and non-stop practice their respective skills. Riya tells Madhav that her father wants her back at home because he believes it's time she got married. When Madhav asks why she didn't tell him about this sooner, Riya says that since she is not sure if he loves her, there is no point telling him anything about herself anymore.

Half Girlfriend is an exciting romance novel with lots of drama and some unique characters.

As the story unfolds, we learn that Madhav lives with his father and mother in Delhi. His father is an Ayurvedic doctor and has no time for him, so he's left at home alone, where he plays basketball and reads books all day. When Madhav was just a child, his parents divorced because they couldn't agree on what kind of medicine to use in their practice. One thing they both agreed on, though, was that they wanted their son to be educated at a good school—a decision which led him to St Francis College in Delhi, where he eventually meets Riya Sharma during his first basketball game at college.

Half Girlfriend is an exciting romance novel with lots of drama and some unique characters. For example, there’s a guy named Rohan Malhotra who teaches English to people who want to improve their language skills but don’t have time or money for lessons from English teachers at schools or colleges; instead, Rohan offers private tutoring sessions for people like Madhav Jha (the main character) who need help learning how "to speak like an American person."

Summary

The story is narrated through the voice of Madhav Jha, who hails from a small Bihar village called Dumraon. Madhav is the son of an Ayurvedic doctor and is a basketball player. Riya Somani is the female protagonist from a wealthy English-speaking family in New Delhi.
