This is the very first novel written by the author. A nineteen-year-old's first love steadfastly remains embossed in his psyche.
The experience of the young person with himself is unique and leads one to believe that love is really sweet though painful at times. He can neither run away from his love nor embrace it with all the passion.
His earnestness is exemplary and bears fruit at the end through various turns and twists.
But why this obsession when the common belief is that love is in one's imagination alone.
The author feels that love deserves more than that and that is what this story is all about.

...He reaches that point in life for which life is meant.
