Book review: Your Dreams Are Mine Now
"Jaana meri O jaana..sun tujhse keh dun jaana..sapne jo sare tere..ab meri ankhon me bas gaye jaana"
"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" - I can relate these lines so much to the Arjun and Rupali's story.

She was shy, he was bold

She was innocent, he was mature

She was friendly, he was an introvert

Studies are her first priority, politics is his first priority

They were complete opposite.

But as we know, opposite attracts as well

Arjun was a gentleman, that every girl wants in her life.

They met, fell in love.

At one point they were same- they both were the #HERO

A junior girl proposed a senior guy-she got guts man!#HERO

She changed the trend that only guys should propose first, she believed, if anybody loves someone...they must express it, if guys can do it then why not a girl can propose first??

World seem so beautiful to them.

But life is not a fairy tale.

If there is sunshine...there are scary nights too in the box....I sometimes wonder, why there's always a sad ending Ravin's stories? But then I realized, someone has to show the real stories..and mostly a love story has a sad ending.

Ravin penned down the real face of the society...raised issues like reservation, quota system, corruption, racism, mental illness of people like Mahajan.

And how an innocent love story of Arjun and Rupali had to bid goodbye!

She was a perfect girlfriend.

An amazing friend.

A proud daughter.

And she didn't missed her social responsibility as well.

She stood for the right-Not everyone has the courage to do that#HERO

She was made to payoff being right.

She died..her death wasn't normal,

It stirred lives of people around her.

She may have not been there anymore...but her tulsi plant was.

She motivated people to take a stand against what is right.

But Arjun...he lost his girl.

His lost was something I can't imagine and don't have any words to express what he may have gone through.

I remember few lines from Ravin's 'I Too Had a Love Story' when Ravin lost his beautiful Khushi, and I feel Arjun have murmured those same lines after his loss-

SHE DIED. I SURVIVED.

BECAUSE I SURVIVED, I DIED EVERYDAY.

I love writing style of Ravin. The way he put life into characters and make them speak.

I love when he describe little things like the weather...the surroundings...the appearance of the characters...it beautifies the experience of reading, it feels like I'm walking into the shoes of the characters.

"With great power comes great responsibility"

What you write has a big impact on your reader's life.

As an author Ravin understood his responsibility, and gifted us again with a beautiful love story with a message to raise your voice against evil.

He inspires me in so many ways, he make me believe in love more and more everytime he hold his pen.

I adore him.

And one more thing that I would like to mention is his usage of hindi in between the conversations-it connects with Indian readers quickly...they make us feel like "Oh yes, we would have said the same lines if it had happened with us", so hatsoff for this.

You have created your own style.

His notes in italics do wonders.

There were so many lines which I loved and one of them is "The way HER Arjun was in the process of sketching his desires on the canvas of her body"- he has got mastery in playing with words.
