I am very very NEW to reading. I read a lot of self help type of books. I happen to come across an advertisement for your book I STILL THINK ABOUT YOU for a nominal pricing. From the title I assumed that it is going to be a love story. Either it is going to make me CRY or end up with SMILES.. I just wanted to give it a try for the pricing and I did. My book arrived. I read the first few pages, did not want to continue because I was personally having a difficult time in my relationship with the most significant person in my life. The behaviour of Vratika + how Dhruv went on just because of the fact that he was madly in love with her. At that point, I was fed up to continue. I left the book. I never touched it back for a month. Last week I went to chennai. I decided to give a read through or give away to someone. I felt let me read it for what is the max that is gonna happen..?? Trust me Arpit, I am really glad that I picked up the book. This is the most amazing book I have read. It has a story outline which is not there in any of the self help books.. which says DO THIS, DO THAT.. but in your book, I could see myself. It taught me the most amazing things which I have been trying to learn in all of the self help books with so much efforts. I got scoldings from my grand mother for continuously reading, but NEVER kept the book down.
Your story taught me
a. To BELIEVE
b. It is REAL.
Hope is REAL.
Happiness is REAL.
Magic is REAL. (The dream of the amazing tree)
Healing is REAL.
Transformation of a person is REAL.
LOVE is REAL.
I am REAL.
PS: I am attaching a painting that I did for my significant other (my love) which I related to the magic tree in the story.
c. I learnt what REAL LOVE is. Love is not the gooey, aww feeling, butterflies in the stomach, heart beat racing faster. Well, that is the starting point for us to look at the opposite gendere to start with. But I learnt that I was loving my person all wrong. I was loving him from MY POINT OF VIEW with ME in the centre. That is not what love is. I learnt what LOVE is. Any body can fall in love, but it takes really matured people and their choice to stay in love for the rest of the lives. LOVE is when we spend our lives together at the age of 80, with wrinkles all around, sipping coffee next to each other and looking at him, I am saying.. Kutty Ma... WE MADE IT. That is love.
I am now learning to love myself, and my baby from a different vantage point. I do not know if we will last together for all the past indifferences, confusions, and so on.. But I BELIEVE, we will and I will let you know once i tell him WE MADE IT THROUGH.
Note: Was it just a mere coincidence that the first time I am using a web based FB and I see my baby pop up as seen 4hours ago as I was typing the above point. I whole heartedly now believe Arpit, that Universe is always communicating to us, through these tiny signs, just that we need to notice. I believe, UNIVERSE is got my back. Thanks to you.. I will never give up.
d.I see myself in Dhruvs' place. I really hope that my love gets to see how much I am becoming a different person at HEART and we are blessed to be together. I cant wait for our first kiss in PURE LOVE.
Every artist deserves to be appreciated. The minute I finished this book.. I decided to write to you. I finished it a week ago. But finally, something prompted me to write it today. I am glad I found the time to pen my feelings on your book down. I am glad I picked your book. I would recommend this book for anyone who is going through depression, lost hope in life. I do not know under what category the book is.. I believe this is the best self help motivational book I have read which made me believe in LOVE.
Thank you for a lovely book Sir.
A first time reader.
