      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    It Started With A Friend Request is a story of true, solid love and steadfast friendship, interspersed with dry humour, and is based on actual people from the author’s life.

    Summary Of The Book

    The protagonist of the story, a conservative and young man named Akash, has a penchant for intelligent women. His world turns upside down when he visits a discotheque named Thrive with his best friend, Aditya, and meets Aleesha. Aleesha is new to the city of Mumbai, and is considered to be a spoiled brat owing to the pampered upbringing she has had.

    Aleesha and Akash exchange Blackberry pins and slowly progress to chatting with each other on a daily basis. They soon begin to fall in love with each other. With help from their friends, the couple manages to meet each other often and they navigate through the hurdles and obstacles that every relationship harbours. However, things soon take a turn for the worse. It is up to Aditya to help his friends get their life and relationship back in order. But can he?

    It Started With A Friend Request is more than just a love story. It explores the nuances of basic relationships and exemplifies true friendship, along with portraying base emotions like jealousy, hatred, insecurity and possessiveness, and interweaving a story of unrequited love alongside. This novel was published in 2013 and is based on a true story.

    There was high expectations from celebrated author Sudeep Nagarkar and he lives up to expectations. A book of life, love n friendship

    It started with a friend request leaves a big smile on your face after closing the book. All the while you think whats gonna happen next and this makes it a extraordinary read. I recently read Ravinder Singhs book but it sucked big time with all hype.

    Sudeep Nagarkar's this book released with very big hype and I think this is the most hyped book of the year but I was really glad and happy that book lived to all the expectations. Indeed it takes every emotion to one level higher. Sudeep has ...

    What a trash!

    I bought this book to make my flipkart order amount to be 500, so that I don't have to pay extra delivery charge. And also I read some good reviews about it. But after finishing the book, I felt sick and angry! What a waste of time, energy and money!!! It was better for me to pay the extra delivery charge than to buy this horror flick. And how come people even like this book?? I mean who the hell in their sane mind call their boyfriend/girlfriend "mickey/miney"!?!?! Or upload trash movie song...

    Please skip

    my 1st biggest mistake was buying this book and the 2nd mistake was reading it.
    I found this book boring and the story - an absolute no-brainer. The author seems to be heavily influenced by bollywood movies and some hindi romantic trashy serials. The story starts-off well and goes into a downward spiral within a couple of chapters.
    The feeling between the characters seems to be lust rather than love. The lead girl character is very immature and the dialogues between the characters, includin...
