You are the Best Wife: A True Love Story


Blurb: Ajay believes in living for himself; Bhavna teaches him to live for others. Ajay is a planner for life; Bhavna makes him live in every moment. You are the Best Wife is a story of two people with contradictory ideologies who fall in love. It changes them for good. It changes the way they look at the world and the way the world looks at them. Until destiny reveals its plans. This is a true inspiring story of the author and his struggle with life, after his beloved wife left him halfway through their journey. But her last words, ‘you are the best husband’ gave him the strength to live on, and fulfil his promise of love. Told with frankness and doses of humor, this heart-warming tale of a boy and a girl who never gave up on their love in face of adversities, ends on a bittersweet and poignant note as Ajay comes to terms with the biggest lesson life has to offer.

About the Author: Ajay K Pandey grew up in the modest NTPC township of Rihand Nagar with big dreams. He studied Engineering in Electronics at the IERT (Allahabad) and MBA at IIMM (Pune) before taking up a job in corporate firm. He is currently working with Cognizant, Pune. He grew up with a dream of becoming a teacher, but destiny landed him in the IT field. Travelling, trekking and reading novels are his hobbies. Travelling to different places has taught him about different cultures and people, and makes him wonder how despite all the differences, there is a bond that unites them. Trekking always inspires him to deal with challenges like a sport. Reading is perhaps what makes him feel alive. You are the Best Wife is his debut book based on his life events and lessons.

Review: Heartiest congratulations to author Ajay for his book. It was a wonderful and worthy read. The author and the story got me hooked to the book till the last. Off late many books could not get me eager to reach the last page but this book being of romantic genre would manage to do that. On one side the story on the romantic lines of the couple was just a visual treat and on another side, heart breaking and gasping are the bitter moments of negative truth which tore apart the rhythm of the whole sweetness of the journey, but I am glad the book showed both the ups and downs of life and relationships. The story is about Ajay who belongs to middle class family, has high aspirations of getting in to the IIT but lands up in IERT. He meets Bhavna in his class and ends up in having a crush on her which evolves into true love. Bhavna comes from a strict and rich family. Though hesitant in the beginning, Ajay does confess his feelings to Bhavna. She reciprocates it positively. Ajay encounters problems with his job, he doesn’t get placed anywhere. Bhavna finds herself in a well settled job. Few years later, Bhavna ends up in spilling beans about her relationship with Ajay to her parents. Rest follows the questions – How do her parents react to Bhavna’s news? Do they agree? What does Ajay do to convince his parents? What bitter game does life play with them? The lesson the book You are the Best Wife tells everyone who reads it is -‘No matter how bad the situation is, one must never surrender. One must never lose hope.’ Terms like bonds and relations are dissolving every day in this temporal world, author Ajay has sustained and redefined it’s meaning through his unconditional love in form of this book.  It doesn’t matter if you are in love or not, but I would recommend this book everyone who believes in the power of love to go ahead and read this book.
