Average Reading Time
Hi, I'm Sagar, a young Indian male having a typical middle-class small-town upbringing. Like scores of my contemporaries, I too have been brainwashed to worry not only about my family at my cost but also worry about what neighbourhood busybody Sharma aunty will think of me. I dream about being less boring & more outgoing like my friend ‘Raju Bhaiya’, a budding student leader, who doesn't give a damn for anyone including neighbour nosy parkers like our beloved Sharma aunty. From the banks of Ganga in Banaras, the destiny took me to the vast oceans of merchant navy. As I was contentedly living in a siloed middle-class existence, something happened. I was besotted by ‘Bhakti’ at the very first glance while waiting for my turn at a mobile phone service centre. ‘One moment has power to change one's life.’ Was this mine? Embark on the rollercoaster ride of a love story that most of you will relate to.
