Manvi Sharma, the creator of Algaav, the number one magazine on social issues in India, is in
her office trying to pass the few hours left till
her big day. Unable to distract herself, she asks her secretary, Rosy, to call
the reporter who had been trying to get an appointment with her the past two
months. Ankit Rohatgi, the reporter, had been eagerly waiting for the
interview. He arrives at her office to ask all the important questions.
Every step that Manvi takes is public, it seems
like nothing about her is hidden from the world, but Ankit wants to know what
is curtained behind her beautiful eyes. He wants the story of her journey to
the top, the untold story.
“A simple girl, born and brought up in a middle-class family where education is treated
as a religion,” that is a gist of the
author’s life. Since childhood, she lived to fulfil
only one target, i.e., to get the highest
marks in the class. Targets are meant to be achieved, but it is not necessary
that they are achieved in reality. She was good but not good enough to get into
a medical college. So she landed up at a decent engineering college. Just like
all other students, she focused more on distractions than on studies. And like
others, she fell in love in the beginning
of the semester.
This story is inspired by her life story.
Break ups are bad, and she went through the same pain millions of youngsters
go through these days. She wants to share her experience and how she overcame
that pain without doing anything stupid, something which she and her family
could be ashamed of. This is an attempt to help youngsters like her, so that they do not make the same
mistakes. Youngsters should understand, through this book, that life can be
started afresh despite pain, and with time,
the pain will disappear.
