This book attempts in right earnest to take you through the pursuit of love and its various ‘interpretations’ by means of 21 short stories and 7 poems. You may identify yourself with a character, either in full or part, in a story or may be many stories. You may smile, laugh, cry, rejoice and be one with your inner self. Or you may just shrug it off as ‘cheesy’ and ‘childish’! Whatever may be the case, I believe, it will be an ‘amusing’ experience.
Emotions are what make us human, and life worth living. Love of all, is proclaimed to be the purest. With patience dwindling fast and faith fading away, bonds for a life-time are broken in just a few months or even in a matter of days, more frequently than ever before. The story ‘The Break Up’is a mirror to the guy and gal ‘interpreting’ relationship differently and then breaking up. Beside this story, you may find in some stories, a glimpse of love which goes beyond just a ‘guy’ and ‘gal’ relationship. A sincere effort is aimed at bringing out a ‘holistic’ view of the emotion.
