Let’s untitle love: My entry for the get published contest



Bavya and Advaith are best friends from time immemorial. Suchi, Advaith’s girlfriend and Bavya get campus placement with a MNC and move to Banglore. While Sarang, Bavya’s guy is okay with the idea, Advaith couldn’t handle the situation where both his best friend and girl are going away from him in a swish. Suchi, a girl from a conservative middleclass background oppressed by her manipulative mother, felt like a free bird let out her cage. Spring ended and autumn started in Advaith’s life once Suchi left to Banglore. The ever smooth relationship between Suchi and Advaith started taking the rough road from then on.

On the other hand, Suchi as an individual was welcomed to the life of modern woman: financially free, liberal to live the life of her will and wish. Life doesn’t seem what it is to be. Her perceptions and ideologies change. There is this smart guy in her office, who captures her eyes. To worsen things, Suchi forgets calling Bavya on reaching office on a rainy day and her mobile remains switched off. Bavya, out of panic, calls Advaith to know if Suchi is fine as she always calls him on reaching office. When Advaith too has no clue panic strikes him too. But what happened was that her mobile ran out of charge and she was caught up in a training session unable to call.

Advaith screams at Suchi out of concern and she finds it out of proportion. After a bad day and weather all she wants is a break and asks Advaith not to call for a fortnight. The very next day out of frustration she sends an online message to the senior guy at office greeting him. What started as a small chat lead one thing to another taking the relationship to next level. Suchi, was not the same orthodox girl whom Bavya knew.
Advaith and Suchi’s anniversary was nearing and Advaith planned it to make it big and a patch up party. He wanted to surprise her with candles and cakes at her flat which she shared with Bavya. Bavya, unable to hurt her friend neither with the facts nor wanting to give him any hope simply goes with the stream with only one thought: Advaith’s love deserves another chance. If this is the shot then she was all ready to help him.

What happens on the eve of Advaith and Suchi’s anniversary and the aftermath is something which no one can predict. Will Suchi’s change have an impact on Bavya’s nature too? Why is Bavya and Sarang’s relationship smooth while Suchi and Advaith have a tough one? Will this relationship problem between Advaith and Suchi affect Sarang and Bavya’s relationship too? Set from the view of Bavya, this is an usual at the same time an unusual one set in the backdrop of Banglore and a tier- II city called Coimbatore in Tamilnadu picturing the paradigm shift of a girl’s mind with freedom and exposure. This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs from Yashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India .
