Blurb: Adhuri Prem Kahaniya has evolved over years of 12 people. The book covers light moments of these people in these 25 short stories. This book may prove to be a good travel read or ice breaker. A person asked me, How to fall in love with a right person? I gave a candid reply, “Love is treated like sex: You’ll figure it out.” All sort of dire, unexpected outcome.

Review: There are 12 chapters with short stories woven in these chapters with infatuation to serious falling apart. Most of the time the stories ended hurriedly. There are so many grammatical errors, but innocence of attention-grabbing characters and flow makes it interesting. It looks like a diary or journal read but not a fiction book. Some stories left me with a smile. I liked few chapters which are written in a good format.These stories reflect the life of adults of different backgrounds and lifestyles. Must read for today youths to understand the complexity of emotions. One’s experience is a lesson for others.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
