I Still Think About You by Arpit Vageria with the story of love, brotherhood, pain, redemption, the journey, the lies and the secrets, the regrets, the discovery of an unexpected truth has unspeakable secrets, that even if we do not want to affect the lives of the people, but they are there nearby.

It is imperative to make an introduction. There are things that are destined to be lost in time and then there are stories that before being unveiled make the rounds, hiding in the hope of being buried, but soon as they find a crack, come out because the truth always finds a way to come to the surface. It is difficult to discover a secret, but it's harder to keep it. And that's what happens.

Aamir has certainly not met anyone who understands him better than Anvi other than her infatuation for undercover reporting scares him no end. And what binds these couples? One step at a time, it is not as intuitive as it may seem. We do not know anything about her, except that she is calling while reporting from a crime scene and promising to toggle to anchoring when he hears a firing.

For Aamir, Dhruv is the finest present existence has given him who are further than just brothers. Dhruv can do anything to make happy Vratika, for he seems bound to her for life. They have been going secure for a while and he feels she brings smiles and glow to his existence like no other.

Time throws Aamir and Dhruv in a whirlpool of pain, loss and remorse as they separate from the love of their lives but after years of struggles and pain are slowly waning away in the countenance of happier times as Dhruv meets Sachi, who reads his mind, soothes his spirit and brings him face to face with his existent identity.

The book give us one of the most beautiful love stories written in the last few years as it talks about those lives that continue to touch each other, but they are destined to get lost and pure and infinite love that exists, with what could have been and what was not.

The genuineness of gestures, words used and the purity of feelings leave me each time more dreamy. I found immersed in a fluid writing and in a calm and polite story structured in a simple, but effective and not granted manner in a quiet oasis where emotions are soft and take on colour and intensity of brush strokes page by page.

I got carried away pleasantly until, in the second half of the novel just before I begin my night reading, I feared that I had forgotten the book in a handbag left in office. I felt as lost and I realized that this book of love I had taken and I have found great relief to have it placed on the bed after just returning home from work.

And so, with increasing interest, I devoted every spare moment to read and have been rewarded. I enjoyed the lack of frills and delicacy that accompanies as the story progresses, with the grace with which the author highlight the feelings and in short, without losing tenderness.

Nevertheless, the book reads quickly and pleasantly. It’s a novel that deserves to be read and, with conviction, recommend it to everyone in a novel in which passion, love, remorse and redemption come together and merge, giving way to the bitterness of things never said, kept silent until the last exhalation of breath. I became convinced that it is for the good of the person to which we hold so much, but it really is only for reasons, for that fear of having to share its good.

Anything but corny as the title would suggest, this novel carries atmospheres and environments painted with intensity of a good writing. The end may perhaps be a little predictable, but the book is anything but boring or banal with beautiful characters and the romance of today is pleasant and engaging.

At the end, it is the story of happy love that everyone wants to experience, and is undoubtedly the exciting tale of people challenged by circumstances and a very strict moral code in a book, that surely will give you pleasant emotions. At the bottom love is always the engine of our lives.
