    The dress looks better on her against the model; the color and style fits her well.

    She chose this for a cover? She looks like a school going girl as opposed to a mature desi woman…why not go desi?

      Exactlly! if this was deemed worthy enough of being at the cover I’m not thrilled or even curious as to what could possibly be inside the book!

      Your reason for disliking this is coz its not desi??? Why should she not go western if she wants?? weird!

      Maybe that was her point to look much younger than her age.

        Lol it says on the cover about how she lost weight. And I am sorry if you havent noticed but this is what all them indians are doing right now. Dressing up and aping every single western culture move. So it should be no suprise this book will talk about nothing but the western ways. Oh our dear culture, it will be missed

          Since when is it Indian culture to not lose weight?Being slim and healthy is not a western concept.
          Every mum on this planet would love to go back to her pre pregnancy shape, So if someone like Karisma who’s so fit after 2 kids wants to share her tips with us, all I can say is we are really lucky!!
          I for sure am going to buy this.. its great to see an Indian book on this subject..Karisma was the perfect choice.

          Dressing up, losing weight is a bad thing. I didn’t realize Indian culture was all about being a sloppily dressed fat ass.

    I love her sense of style, minimalist and elegant. I would pick similar outfits for myself (ahem, if I had the money, of course!). And yes, if the book has many more pictures of her looking fabulous, I would definitely buy the book.

      Oh, the only rant I have is about the pose. What’s with the hands up in the air look that all Indian moms on TV ads have perfected over the years? Such a dated pose. They use this for everything – to indicate their prowess at cooking fantastic meals or their ability to make clothes spotlessly white. She should have just put her hands down.

    not working. for someone who chooses sophisticated, age-appropriate attire for her personal appearances, this is so Barbie. meh.

    Nooo because being a mummy is more than losing weight and looking yummy

    Not for the dress, she looks cute.
    But the constant, never ending ‘yummification’ of us. Can we just leave it at you are mummy and how awesome is that? So much pressure to become yummy too.

    Haha such a huge book as a guide for being a yummy mummy.all u need is an army or domestic help and one nanny for each kid… Life gets simpler making a dull mummy a yummy one :) but karishma looks great on the cover

    1. Jasmine at | | Reply

      Hahaha She probably has 2 nannys or “bais” for each kid haha. or more. I can just imagine the book saying:
      Step one to being a yummy mummy: Hire a nanny for your child. Or 2. Now that you are free, enjoy your life and forget you had a child.

      1. justcasually at | | Reply

        Wow! That is catty! Why assume that if you have a bai for your child, you ‘forget’ about your kid. Responsible parenting and money are inversely proportional?
        I can understand that the book is pushing a sterotype of a supermom who is always well groomed and also on top of things, go after that if you must. Why must you doubt her instincts and capabilities as a mom.

        1. Rashmi K at | | Reply

          IMHO, i dont think the point was to judge her capability as a mum. It’s quite natural these days for us mortals to get annoyed looking at another privileged person speaking down from a high falutin POV, minting money telling others how to live their life. Marissa Mayer saying motherhood is easy was just as ridiculed, given she had built a creche in her office. People need to check their privilege before trumpeting their “success”.

    yummy mummy c’mon you are more than that lady. let the title of the book accord more respect!

  16. Ms at | | Reply

    I love the dress!!! And she looks elegant as always! Not sure about the book though, I’m wondering what great tips on being a mom and losing weight a priveledged celebrity is going to offer!

  17. DiptiN at | | Reply

    At least she is not wearing black. I hate, absolutely hate the way she styles her hair.

  18. Jasmine at | | Reply

    Lol I am sorry, but we all know her being a yummy mummy is no thanks to herself. Its just going on expensive diets and even more expensive fitness trainers and much much more expensive anti aging creams.
    But jokes aside anyone know where I can find this book online haha? I dont live in India :P

    I am a mummy. Please don’t ever call me yummy.

  20. Asha at | | Reply

    I read an excerpt of the book today. She comes across as the Indian Gwyneth Paltrow…talking about managing her household staff, and teaching the “help” to manage her schedule. Privileged much?

    And seriously isnt being a mummy hard enough without the added pressure of being yummy as well? I am not a mummy, but I think this is grossly unfair!!


    1. Sifar at | | Reply

      Seriously there’s no pressure to be yummy if u don’t want to be. But its great for some women who want to look after themselves as well as their kids!

      The book is clearly not for those living in America who have no ‘help’. Middle class families in India have maid and gardener and an istri wala..maybe i`m missing some more …the rich in India have nannies as well.. hence it is made for those who live in that privileged country.
