This is not your story

A story would always be incomplete without the one you can finally be happy with. Yes, it is not an end, until you are satisfied with what ever you have. 

Savi Sharma with her second book ‘this is not your story’s has amazingly portrayed story of young men and women.

Shaurya, a CA student. Miraya, an interior designer. Anubhav, an aspiring entrepreneur. Kasturi, shaurya’s neighbour and a dear friend.
you seem so confident,’ I said, my eyebrows raised high, feeling sceptical at his words. ‘risks can often land you I. A far worse situation.’

‘True,’ he nodded, his grin widening. ‘but, then again, the weight of regret and asking yourself what if, down the road is afar more haunting to one’s soul. What if i took that chance? Well, if the worst that happens is that you have to come back home and pick up where you left off, at least you can stop wasting time on dreaming and wondering if it’s still a possibility.’ -pg24

Shaurya, is excellent at studies and knows he would do real well, at his CA exams. But, what is it that he wants to do instead? What is his dream after all? And around his story revolves all of others. 

Miraya, is depressed over her broken marriage whereas, anything is all mourning over his dead parents. And just like, iron cuts iron, both of them find refugee under each others company. But, would they ever confess?

Would shaurya confess his love for kasturi? Would he follow his dreams after all? 

Sometimes, you do not write your story, it writes you. You don’t choose your story, it chooses you.

Savi Sharma has taken this book with good composition of motivation and storytelling combined.

Oh yes, I’m single! and so is my girlfriend!

Joy, a Bengali nerd student who absolutely falls in love with every girl he dates. And, yes with love I mean the butterfly in your stomach kind of feeling. But, he break ups with them eventually. 

But, when he meets manika, it is different. He didn’t have to play and think of things, all of his words came from his heart.

‘so basically, both of you knew that you loved each other and still remained away from each other? Must have been terrible right?’ i said.

‘mind-numbingly terrible’,joy said.

‘more for me,’ manika said. Pg221

Manika and joy falls in love, writes three books together but, then with the fame joy splits out. 

But, that is what love does to people,  even if they try one can never stay away from it. 

Manika still in love, joy being the same. But, how would they come together if none of them would talk about it? 

‘and you knew i would be waiting for you?’

‘i hoped with my life that you would l be,’ he said and kissed me on the lips.

‘but. . . What if–‘

‘let’s not live with the what-ifs. This time, it’s for life.’

‘you said that the last time, too’

‘now i know what life is without you and i don’t want that life. I want you’, he kissed Me. Pg239
