Finding true love is like finding a needle in the haystack. It’s difficult to come by. No matter what by Rohit Dawesar is a story that’s rooted in this concept. It shook me.
The book follows the story of Rishi and Mishika. They have been in a relationship since their college years. Even a hiatus, owing to job placements, couldn’t break them apart. They are to get engaged but on the day of their engagement Mishika mysteriously disappears. A year goes by but she doesn’t come back. Rishi is rattled. Her leaves no stone unturned to search for her. And just when he feels it’s a dead end, he decides to give it a shot one last time.
I binged this story and though Bollywood-esque, it did hit me with varied emotions. I had goosebumps, I laughed, I was hurting, every step of the way up until the climax. Sometimes it felt overtly dramatic, sometimes the drama was clipped. But the plot and narration was truly done well. The Hinglish interspersed in the narrative will make this one a favourite of college-goers, in my view. But more than that the story makes a poignant statement. The twist erupts in a way that it leaves you shaken. For any woman that plot twist is a nightmare. Also, I loved how the story culminates.
It isn’t a mushy romance. It is a strong one that will stay with you for the longest time.
