On Tuesday at about 12pm, Dutta appeared on social media platform – Twitter, and proclaimed his desire to convert his four-year-long relationship into marriage. Instead of the traditional approach of a ring, he uses the hashtag #marrymeavantika.
What followed were a series of tweets by the nervous Bengali author where he seeks supports from his followers and tries to justify his proclamation. All this time Avantika is on a flight and the plan is to overwhelm her with support and bully her into marrying him.

In a confessional mood, Dutta launches into his reasons for doing this over Twitter. He writes in a post on Instagram, “She (Avantika) alleges I’m too busy with my books, my readers, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to formally propose her. Though that’s true, a part of the reason is also my overwhelming shyness to do something grand. So I’m doing what I do best. Hiding behind my phone and asking my readers for help! Okay, I know a lot of you will tell me I’m breaking your heart but seriously you girls can do better.”


The Perfect Girlfriend

The tweets that follow explain the reason why she would make for a perfect life-partner.

Even relatives and friends feature in this proposal party.
