Notion Press’ Latest Is A Heart Warming Love Story
We spend our lives craving it, searching for it, and talking about it. Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed and it’s called the greatest virtue, it’s love. Love is fascinating and complex at the same time. It seems to be a beautiful mystery we find hard to explain. Although writers, poets and songwriters can put many of our romantic thoughts and feelings into words, it’s still not definable. It is formless and there are no hard lines. While no one ever really fears love, we all fear the consequences of love! What if love comes, and goes? Can you fall in love again? Notion Press, India’s leading self-publishing platform presents, You Are All My Reasons by Kanika Aggarwal and Utsaha Khare, a truly vibrant and memorable love story.
Leaning into love and connection can feel like going into battle without any armour, especially if you have been deeply hurt in the past. When pain and trauma are not new to you, the fear of experiencing it all over again can seem truly agitating. You Are All My Reasons opens a window into the life of Mira, the head of design functions in a leading fashion house. Mira’s life takes a turn when she finds her state of ‘comfortably numb’ being disrupted by the arrival of a colleague, Rishabh. Arduous, attractive and irritatingly difficult to ignore, his charm slips through the creeks in her otherwise stoned-by-wound heart. Her reluctance shattered by his congeniality gradually matures into emotional intimacy which gets eclipsed by the grey clouds of their yesteryears bruised with heartbreak, pain and loss. You Are All My Reasons is a story that captures a girl’s internal struggles against the design of destiny. Battling against a past that’s left her bereft of hope she indulges in a ballet of emotions that precipitates her true self. Will Rishabh be able to make Mira realise that while the secret of life can be assimilated from the past, it can truly be lived only in the future?
