Love: Lost and Found

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… it has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival. – C. S. Lewis
Yeah, such a friend is Adhira, the protagonist of the novel. We may have so many friends with different goodness holding individually, while Adhira is all togetherness of the humble things when it comes for her dear ones. This can be seen at the very opening scene, where Adhira helps Nikhil, the one who has cheated on her in the name of love, that shall be seen later as the story passes. We are introduced to so many characters and most important of them are Riddhi, Siddharth, Abhimanyu, Shekhar, Varun. The rest of the characters do also play equal role, subsequently. It may be confusing to get to know about all the characters still with the turning pages we can live and rejoice the beautifulness hidden in the story.

When everything is about to start right, Adhira gets a dreadful news, about the confirmation of her disease. It gives her a period of 7 months, the life span left with her. She is completely bewildered but she accepts the truth. she also seems not to agree for the operation. She even fight backs her tears as she wants to spread happiness around her. She hides her disease from most of them around her.
The wedding plans and celebrations goes on with full zeal. The festive mode can be enjoyed thoroughly by the words chosen to explain. It’s only a group of friends who are making up the wedding plan and therefore we shall hold a smile while reading, as it is filled with giggles, chats, emotions and much more love.Shekhar, being a rock star and popular fellow, has fallen for Adhira, who not!! But since she is married to Varun, both of them keep their distance just showing a good friendship. Adhira misses Varun much. She has started to wait for days with the same love, which then rolled to months and folded to years. She feels that something has completely changed with Varun, yet she believed him. With Shekhar, he cares for Adhira in each and every step of her and the magical and mystical spell between them can be visualized by Riddhi.
The wedding plans go as per their wishes and just a few days left for the wedding, there comes an unexpected change. Varun comes to Manali, with something, that completely changes the life of Adhira.
