The author, Dr. Sreelatha Chakravarty, brings to life a character, which is interesting enough to fill an entire book but is unique enough to baffle a practical reader. The author tries to paint a picture of romanticism as some kind of infirmity that makes many a person live in make-believe. When such make-believe is questioned or negated by the practicalities of life, some souls like Indira in the story, cling onto delusions to ward off hopelessness.
An eternal romantic is poetry of life—a slice of life that in very few words tries to encapsulate the vast subject of romance from the character’s perspective. And when the story ends you hope it had just begun. That is why the author is planning on writing a sequel to it. An Eternal Romantic is, for the author, is a study on schizophrenia as it manifests in the form of romantic aspirations and beliefs.
