No. of Characters Aeklavya : the main lead, who is in love with Aparna and moves out of the village for a job. He end up missing an entrance exam because of a communal riot. Loss of his mother and to break up of the love birds makes him lose his mind for a while, later He gets his wisdom in a Buddha temple, and writes a novel. He gets famous making it easier for Aparana to find him.

Aparana: a simple girl, who falls in love with Aeklavya in simple Bollywood style. But later portrayed as a strong individual who fights for women rights and makes Aeklavya fall for her.

Tone of writing is It is simple. A different kind of love story, adding a value to life.
My take on the book I loved the book. It gave a fresh insight to the regular love stories. It just echo’s my thoughts, where both the individuals should have their individuality and yet be together in love. Love can happen twice with the same persons. Personal happiness is also part of a couple’s happiness. Though the book says, I am your shadow, I feel that Aparana means a lot more to Aeklavya.
Do I recommend the book? Yes, very much. A fresh story.
On the other hand  

my rating: 4.0/5.

Finally I would like to Thank the Leadstart Publishingfor sending me the copy. It will be kept safe along with my other treasured books.





I welcome you here! My blog is primarily a blank paper with chronicles of my everyday thoughts and happenings around me spilling like colours. It has various hues, bright, cheerful at times dark episodes of my life. I like to speak a lot and tell stories, but rarely find patient listeners. So, here I am venting out, everything crossing my mind. it is also a record book of my little Barbie’s antics and growth. It is just not about the baby ,but also helps me to keep track of fights and special moments with husband, in-laws and friends. I am an Architect by profession working for an Govt. away from husband because of job location. I love writing, painting, reading and cooking (occasionally).I like roaming around and window shopping. But, now unable to move even an inch outside, because of my daughter. I am originally from Andhrapradesh and have lived in Tamilnadu for 25 years and now back in Andhra. So you will find mix of words from both the languages and me trying to settle down in this new place. Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you. Please email me at
