Love. A pristine feeling. It’s the freshness of morning dew – fragile yet beautiful. It’s like an iPod with your favourite playlist on repeat mode. It’s like a painter’s first stroke – vulnerable, unsure yet intense. It is the uncertainty of the Indian monsoon. It is like the thrill of having a burf ka gola on a chilly December night. It is as unpredictable as the stock market. It is as dependable as your LIC life insurance. It is as sweet and crooked as a deep-fried jalebi. It is noisier than the Delhi traffic, quieter than the sea at night. It is more demanding than your Board exams, more challenging than the AIEEE or the CAT. It can get dirtier than a teenager’s bedroom. It can be as painful as the first period. It is whiter than pearls, more twisted than a salon-returned girl’s curls. It gives a glow, shinier than bleach. It’s naughtier than a boy and girl together on a secluded beach. It is more addictive than coffee, crispier than KFC, deadlier than an LSD trip. It’s the nervousness of the first kiss, the tension of a period miss, the pressure of parental piss.
A lot like love, happened to them…just when they met a year ago…
And there’s water...from the clouds...from the eyes...
26th September 2010
Rain. The soft showers, the cold breeze, the tingling music of the droplets. The failure of the drainage system. The roads leaking, puking like they’ve had neat Vodka and forgotten the lemons. The colourful umbrellas. The heads which collide behind them. Rain. The car mirrors which get fogged simply by mere verbal interactions. The clothes deciding to commit themselves to the body. The B looking like a D. The hands squeezing everything that’s round. Rain. The couples everywhere. Hand in hand. Arm in arm. That in that. The birds. Chirping like they’ve decided to go for a mammoth gang-bang!
“It’s raining and I feel lonely. I miss you.”
Is what Shadab’s updates as his facebook status as he sits by the window, stretched legs, laptop heating his crotch and the wind spraying a few raindrops on his face.
And that’s how you know the relationship is going strong...
* When they both change their cellular talk plans, buy hands free to relax their heated ears from all the marathon conversations and Skype when it’s getting too expensive.
* When their facebook profiles say, in a relationship with, and every picture of them when uploaded, gets the “Awww’s,” and “so cute,” and “touch wood” comments and random likes.
* When she accompanies him for his haircut. And worse, he has to accompany her for her shopping trips.
* When he texs her without reason and calls her at 4 a.m. just to hear her voice.
* When they reach class late and his shirt is askew and her hair unsettled.
* When he waits outside the changing room, holding her bag as she tries a dozen dresses.
* When they both know all the passwords to each other’s e-mail id’s, social networking accounts.
A LOT LIKE LOVE is one to read when you want to laugh from deep within. Sumrit has a way with words that he can work in his witty humour He's a powerhouse of fun and inspiration. There is no room for boredom! I highly recommend!
Sumrit has done a great job with his second book. I couldn't put it down once I started, and read through the night. The main characters Shadab and Arnika, as well as suporting characters are very sharply defined.
The story is involving- you will almost feel like you are part of the story as you read it.
Few people can make romantic commentary while being this funny. I literally laugh out loud at least once every page. I have always liked him, but after reading this book, NOW I love him. This book gives insightful thoughts contemporary love. ALLL is smart, self-deprecating, and loads of fun to read. You won't regret buying this book.
