Love has always been the point of focus of Ravinder Singh’s novels. What makes him different from other writers of romance is that his stories have a good dose of reality in them. This is, perhaps, what makes them click with a big chunk of readers.
The protagonist of his new novel is 25-year-old Naina Singhania. She marries the son of her father’s business partner, according to her parents’ wishes. She is an obedient daughter, loving wife, dutiful daughter-in-law and a subservient being trapped in a loveless and unhappy marriage. To add some zing to her life, Naina decides to join the gym, and destiny makes her meet Aarav.
The 232-page novel raises the question of fidelity in marriage. Though Singh will not win a Nobel for this one, the novel addresses issues close to his readership. Through the portrait of an Indian girl who has to choose between the role of an obedient wife and an independent woman who listens to her heart, he will speak to many readers.
