Heavenly Love


Write the blurb for the book jacket of the book you’d write, if only you had the time and inclination.

A newly emerging author Lekha Misra after the huge success of her first book ‘ Your Inner Gold’,now preparing to publish her second fictional novel ‘ A Heavenly Love’.

In 1975 in a small city in India.

A beautiful, intelligent, loving, introvert, shy sixteen years old high school girl Vedika is from a rich, upper class aristocrat family.

Arnav a very smart, intelligent twenty four years old student from a middle class family teaches in the high school as a part of his college degree.

Gradually in the class room  Arnav develops affection towards Vedika. But he does not  dare to say anything to her because he comes to know about her family reputation. Some-days Vedika lifts her eyes and gives a small smile. She likes the young man but she is in high school and her family is very conservative. They will never allow such a thing. Society will brand her as a girl with loose moral. She does not want that. Their affection and love are limited to smile and eye contact. Time passes. Arnav goes back to Calcutta to finish his masters degree and then to Delhi university for his Phd. Vedika is now finishing her masters.

But within these ten years their love has grown more stronger. And it is a different type of love where there is no intimacy but just acknowledgement from a distance. At a particular day in every Summer Vedika gets an uneasy feeling, an intuition of Arnav’s presence. She walks to the front porch and stands leaning against the big white pillar. Her big brown eyes get tired of waiting. Her eyes look around at every corner of the road in-front of her house. Then suddenly she spots Arnav walking on the street with a beige cap, white t-shirt. He waves his hand to Vedika as he passes the house. But never stops. He stays in town for two to three days. The same incident continues for two or three days. In those days it is very hard for Vedika to concentrate on any thing. She does not know why she loves him so much. She sits on a garden chair, tilts her head and thinks. It is a very strange love! Nothing like the story of Dante’s Divine Comedy or Charlotte’s Bronte’s Jane Eyre or any Bollywood movies.That is the only time they see each other. Their love overflows and touch each other’s heart. 

Vedika’s parents just like the other Indian parents of that days, have started to look for a perfect partner for her; may be a doctor, an engineer from a rich family similar to their own. Vedika’s likes or dislikes does not matter. Vedika is desperate to give this news to Arnav but how. She wants to marry Arnav but will it be possible? Will their parents agree? What about the society? What about the fame of Vedika’s family?

 Heavenly Love is an unforgettable, wonderful and a different type of love story, a heart touching drama.

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you… when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda
