What makes a 'good indian girl'?

I recently read a refreshingly honest book, written with a good dose of humour - 'The Bad Boys Guide to the Good Indian Girl'.

By Smriti Ravindra and Annie Zaidi, it chronicles the various aspects of an Indian girl's life (albeit in urban settings). The joys & sorrows, the conventional mores, the unwritten, unspoken rules & regulations that govern her existence all find a place in this book.

I can assure you that every Indian girl/woman (born before the '90s) who reads this book will relate to some notion/ story/ incident narrated here.

I certainly could.

Here's one of the authors speaking of how the book came about:
Why good Indian girls are not bad
