The Idea

The story is about two individuals who are as different as chalk and cheese. It’s the story of their love transcending years and continents. If he is quiet, calm and reserved, she is bubbly, cheerful and vivacious. If he rarely talks to people, she talks so much to anyone and everyone that she could create a racket. He’s a suave, young and dynamic working man of today. But his life revolves around work. There’s something he wants to forget. There’s something which is bothering him which he wants to escape from. So he keeps himself as busy as he can. There is a strong desire to earn as much as he can in the least possible time.

And then one fine day he meets someone at a wedding who changes his life forever. She’s a charming, young Delhi girl who has just entered the modelling industry. She wants to be famous and she’s willing to go all out for it. She’s wearing an exquisitely designed sari and looks stunning. He doesn’t know her. But in that very moment, he knows that they would have ‘A story’. But life is not all so easy. Destiny has something else in store for them.

What Makes This Story ‘Real’

The story is inspired from my observations of two of my closest friends. It portrays the good, the bad and the ugly of relationships between couples in today’s fast paced world. Love is not the only thing which can help a relationship stick along. There’s much more involved and the story delves into that.

Her gorgeous smile seemed to obscure the loneliness her hazel kohl lined eyes portrayed. Every moment that I gazed at her, I could feel myself losing into those eyes. She was really tall and with a figure that would have put many others to shame, she seemed to capture everyone’s attention at the party. She had made the effort to tie her hair but a strand popped out on the side of her cheek. As she brushed it off, my heart skipped a beat. I had just fallen for her. She was the one.

But wait. I had never seen her before. Who was she? How come she was here? Was she related to us?

Just as the questions were swirling on in my head, I heard my sister call out to her. So that was it. She was one of her closest friends.

This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs from Yashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India.

      Thanks Rinzu :). I read your story and you have really done it quite well – emotional and engaging. All the best for the contest to you as well :). I tried commenting on your blog but guess there was some issue due to which my comment didn’t go through.

  2. There is so much more besides love, isn’t there? Would like to find out your perspective. A red heart and good luck.
