    This is a modern day love story, things that a every normal Indian couple face in their relationship. The story starts where Aman is returning back to India after two years from UK. For two years he stayed away from his friends and family to get over love of his life Shruti. Where after many trials he still couldn’t forget her. On the other hand now Shruti is happily married to Rishabh. But still she thinks how her life would be if she was still with Aman. However the main reason for their split was Shruti because her parents were against Aman and due to her mother’s illness. Like I said this happens in every other couples life in India.The a beautiful girl Anjali enters Aman’s life she likes him a lot, but Aman is still in thoughts with Shruti. Now Rishabh discovers about Shruti’s past and their relationship starts drifting away. It’s a perfect read with a very fluent and captivating narration.
