The Things We Do for Love
Love is not just about being in a relationship, it’s much more than that… what would you do if you were caught up in a love triangle, but without the love? What if this love that you keep seeking, never really left? Rudra, who thinks that he has started developing feelings for ruhani, is aghast when she chooses her best friend over him – simply because her best friend is jealous. Set out on a task to bring ruhani to her senses, he decides to go all in for the only girl in his life. But, when things go too far, and he finally gets a choice, will Rudra continue to be ruhani’s SA VI or? Or will he find his own happy ending? Narrated by Rudra, the things we do for love, first of a two-part romance, dramatizes his quest for companionship. With a foray of jealousy, multiple second chances, and, bad and uninformed choices, this love-story by Raunak Agarwal is as relatable as his poetry. Excerpts from the book: There are moments when what the other person says or does has no impact on you because the wound cuts so deep that it doesn’t even give you any time to convey emotions. It just hurts. You carry on with your usual self as if nothing ever happened, but deep within you, It hurts, it hurts like hell. What is it with us? It’s like we don’t fall in love, friendship, or anything with people anymore. We connect with clothes, then we connect with their bodies and when we finally connect with the actual person, we don’t like them. We humans are stupid. In lack of choice, we cling on to the first person that we see and call it love. It’s only when we get a choice that we realize if the love was true or not. There is something about making women laugh, it does wonders on them. They say a way to man’s heart is through his stomach. It’s the same for women as well. While we men demand food, women look for butterflies. About the author: Raunak Agarwal is a storyteller and poet based in Kolkata, India.
