Book- That Letter Box
Author- Aritra Dey
Publisher- Bluerose Publishers
“I don’t believe in soulmates, and I don’t think that you & I were destined to end up together. What I do believe is that we fell in love & that we work hard for our relationship.” This is what Monica told Chandler when Phoebe had freaked him out saying she had found some other guy (Don) who she thought was Monica’s soulmate.
It’s definitely destiny that makes you meet different people, but then it’s definitely you who has to work hard for a relationship, give your best, try to live it like it’s the last day of your life. Everytime a relationship cannot be a priority or expecting a relationship to be stable all the time is absolutely unreasonable. Relationship has a deeper meaning, it’s finding home in a person, no matter how hard life tries to knock down your home, you’ve got to try and save it, because, you know, it’s your HOME !
Arin and Debolina’s was a story, they met when they were least expecting to meet anyone, but it was going to end. End up in a divorce. Arin received the divorce papers and was still in a trance when he stumbled across a box of letters. And those bunch of letters took him for a ride of the memory lanes, where he met Debolina, fell in love with her and married her.
The idea behind this book is beautiful. I personally believe in what happened and how it happened. There were times when things were falling apart for me and guess what ? I wrote letters and decided that I have got to hold on to this, because this is priceless, this is my HOME.
The narration travlled from past to present and back to past, but the writing was smooth that there wasn’t even a bit of confusion. This isn’t some cheesy love story. This is a part of Arin and Debolina’s life, left for us to read and learn, may be try to work things over or simply be content with what we chose.
“…It was life that laid the obstacles in front of them…. And yet, the unlikely pair had evaded the blocks and stood passionately at the milestone called marriage….”
