Love is a bizarre emotion. It cannot be confined to a definition of a few words in a line.  It is of many kinds, has various shades and is expressed in multiple ways. While emperor’s dedicate their lives and the life of many of their people in building a perfect monument, a symbolic of perfection of their love and a picturesque mark of their beautiful beloved; there are a few common looking people around us who do something much more difficult than that “to carry on without the one” and accomplishing what they left undone. Such is the inspirational, real life story of Ajay and Bhavna entitled - You Are The Best Wife.

They begin with as a regular college boy infatuated with his adorable classmate turning into a regular couple. The book is the journey of these two people, their coming together as one and the good/bitter moments that is their life. The story progresses from the carefree campus lives to convincing parents for an impossible wedding and as that happens not just the story and the couple but even the writing matures. This evolution of a person from a carefree boy into a responsible householder reflected in the written word, to me was the USP of the book as far as the writing is concerned. Though one knows the inevitable end, each section of the book retains the peculiar essence it has to, it has drama, comedy, family, romance and the right essence of each where needed. In writing a memoir such as this its extremely difficult to make each part unique in itself and while doing so also deliver the story as a whole which is a sum of its parts, the puzzle of the ship of Thesus seems beautifully solved. 

Since Ajay is the one telling it, it is skewed towards Bhavna’s influence in his life and shaping him as a person, which gives it the honest flavour of being in love.  The story is emotionally extremely overwhelming (I cried for the entire day I read it), so advice is to read it when you are alone, especially the last part. I thank the author for sharing his story with us through this book that makes me believe that good people and true love does exist, we haven’t become materialistic robots altogether.

Leave the Bollywood movies and the filmy romance; get a taste of real life - love story. Grab a copy of this book today.

Rating: 3.5/5. Recommended Read.
