The Mindy Project makes Kaling the first South Asian American to be the headliner of her own network television show. Doctor Mindy Lahiri makes similar strides as a smart, spunky gynecologist trying to have it all — a great job that pays well and a handsome man who delivers. Both are often up in the air due to her well-meaning, but often meddling, co-workers and her obvious chemistry with Dr. Danny Castellano (Chris Messina), a smoldering curmudgeon.
While Mindy wows us with her skills (who else could go from party girl to doctor in the flawless badass fashion she does, all while M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls" plays in the background), she also likes to drink and have a great time. Though preferably not one that lands her in a pool with a crazy talking Barbie doll. For the times when Mindy is more play than work, I think she'd love YouTube sensation Hannah Hart's book, based on her web series, My Drunk Kitchen.
