The Blurb Of the Book Says: Suddenly, an arm wrapped my shoulder. I was about to jump off the sink giving a long loud shriek, but he held my mouth with his palm. He tucked my hair behind the ears, gently kissed my forehead brushing his soft lips on the drops of water which Id not dried off. Then kissed me on the cheek again and softly murmured, Its me. The one you were thinking of
Nishis story begins with a Stolen Kiss. Shes quiet, doesn’t like to express much. Kunal, the cynic, is also tough minded and an introvert. She has not confessed and doesn’t have regrets. She’d touched and felt him. If love is insanity, well an asylum was the place for her, for she is truly and completely insane for his love. Who says your heart should beat when you fall in love?
Come on, get up, go and make promises and fulfill your wildest dreams. Remember, there are a billion out there and one of them is for you. . Run to him, hug and say what your heart feels because life’s too short and there’s so little time to unravel your part of mystery.

When i got this book and when i held it i was very happy to see the quality of the book, the printing and the binding quality to be more precise. I would definitely pick this book from a bookstore just by its first looks. Going through the pages i read about the author Leema Dhar, 1st year BA student, which made me curious all the more to read the book which had that red batch on the front cover stating “A National Best Seller”, and i started reading the book.
Initially the book went on with the poetry “Stolen Kiss” defining the cynicism of Kunal and portraying the character of Nishi, and their pure love story
AWESOME work done by newcomer. The debuting writer has showcased her craft in a way that it looks like a work of a matured writer. The character development, the cynicism of Kunal, pace of the fiction, the story line, language, over all gripping. A Treat for the readers. Something different from the present teenage or collegers’ fictions.
“LOVE IS VERY PURE AND IT LASTS FOREVER”
This novel contains not only a beautiful love story but also very heart melting story of an old woman who suffered from cancer but did not loose hope at all.
