First of all my compliments to Shilpa for choosing disability as a theme & weaving an adorable storyline around it.
The plot revolves around Dev & Avni who struggles around various emotional turmoils in their respective lives but they were hell bent on staying unwavered & not to succumb to their miseries. Dev was a rich & successful author with a dark past. He was visually impaired but rather than drenching himself into maudlin guilt, he preferred to look forward in life. Avni on the other hand had her own share of troubles & pain. Dev’ positive persona compelled enticed Avni & eventually she fell in love with him all hook, line & sinker. Though she was madly in love with him but not ready to compromise on her self respect as an individual & independence of being self dependent.
You would love to read how they reached a middle ground where both agreed to become a couple giving breathing space to the aspirations of each other.
Best part is narration of the story without much of a drama. Writer has beautifully depicted the emotional mood swings of disabled people & it will compel you to look at life from their point of view. While two characters in this story are disabled but rather than willowing in self pity they command respect from others with their actions & words.
What I found interesting is the typical boys talk between Maanav, Rishi & Dev. You would love crude & raw banters between the boys which is not much common in novels. Friendship between Diana, Seher & Avni is altruistic & u would adore all of them. Conversation between Avni & her father will make u emotional & you will get transported into their world.
Overall ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to Shilpa for daring to choose this theme.
