Abstract

Parody is a cultural spectacle and it is used as a significant factor for creative expression. A Parodist takes another’s material to make their parodying effective and recognizable. In France, Parody is used to evoke laughter. Judy Balan, an Indian writer in English is an ardent blogger and reviewer who has authored an outright comedy titled Two Fates: The Story of My Divorce and Half Boyfriend. Her story parodies the bestseller Two States: The Story of my Marriage and Half Girlfriend by Chetan Bhagat. Through parodies she evokes laughter and explores the Indian Pop Culture which is ignored in the works of Chetan Bhagat.
