Nobody has it easy in life. No one gets everything right in his or her personal or professional lives from the start. Obstacles are not meant to block our progress. Challenges are meant to help us grow. Adversity is the time for innovation. A comeback after a setback is possible only if we don’t give up on ourselves.
In these pages, a love story is narrated simultaneously. It is an unconventional story of how two individuals find love against all the odds through a journey of self-discovery.
