A CELEBRATED maxim says that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Ravinder Singh’s ‘I Too Had A Love Story’ proves the maxim true and beautifully depicts the beauty and power of true love through the writer’s own heart touching love story.

It is the narrative of the journey of meeting of two strangers through a matrimonial site to the point, where their relationship becomes the most precious gift of Almighty.

Ravinder and Khushi have never seen each other, but love has made them one. The writer has successfully brought out the depth of their relationship through the lively and graphic delineation of their conversation, feelings and emotions.  

The readers can feel their warmth and closeness in the lively and picturesque account of how they longed to be with each other in the rain, the coaxing and cajoling after the tiffs and trying to feel each other in imagination.

Reading this book is all the more enjoyable as the reader relates and identifies with the writer. Impatiently waiting for the next phone call, little surprises bringing them closer, late night conversations, tears and smiles, all these make it a read-till-finish book.

The throbbing curiosity, the irrepressible apprehensions and the overpowering excitement and happiness to meet Khushi in person for the first time takes the story to a crescendo of feelings, emotion and action. Soft and light hearted humor strewn throughout adds an entertainment quotient to the story. The writer tickles a funny bone as he talks about his paranoia when revealing his affair to his parents.

Tear will roll down when an accident leave Khushi battling with death and Ravinder shattered. It reminds that a beloved can save his love till where God intervenes.

Along with the innate beauty of their love story, the expression of the subtle emotions in the most simple and lucid way makes it special. The fact that the writer does not make any effort to impress the readers with lofty words and articulations point to the honesty of the writer’s feelings.

The writer has summed up the essence of his story in the most appealing terms. Not everyone in this world has the fate to cherish the fullest form of love. Some are born, just to experience the abbreviation of it.

Those for whom love is the most beautiful feeling above human definitions and parameters the book will make for an ever cherished experience.

I have not read this book. But, I love this book. And this is the only memory now I have with me about her. She was reading the book in train for continuously 2 days. In between she was starring at me. I don't know her name. Only thing I know, yes she is the one. I tried to start talking with her. But, something stopped me. She took the first initiative to talk. She did only two requests to me. 1) Could you please give me the mobile (It was ringing and plugged into charging)? 2) Excuse Me. Could you please help me opening the bottle? I dont think, I can meet her again in my entire life. She is just lost. But, will try to find her using full of my intelligence and luck. My guess is: her hometown is in Kolkata. I don't know where. And she may be studying in Pune. She has a spects. And she has an HCL Laptop. She has a wheatish complexion. Around 5'2" Height. Short Hair. Beautiful eyes. Her voice was like someone is calling me to get into a dream. I am so stupid. The train stopped at Howrah Station. She was standing with her luggage on the platform. May be waiting for her Parents. I don't know. But, she was looking at me. I could not say a goodbye even. My Journey Details:- ================== Name: Biswadip Majumdar. Date of Journey: 14th July, 2012. Sit Number: CONFIRM B9/ 0038/ UB Train No. & Name: 12221/HOWRAH DURONTO # PNR No: 8303572309 From: PUNE JN(PUNE) To: HOWRAH JN(HWH) =================== I Was in right upper barth of the compartment. And she was in Side upper birth in the next compartment. Kind of diagonally facing at me. I can't stop thinking about her. It is giving me pain each moment. WHy the damn I did not talk. She took the initiative and I could not take any. Your Book is Awesome Ravindar. She loves it. So, as I. I will read it. At least I will go through the same mental phase she had gone through. THanks for a great book. Ba bye. See, I too had a love story.
