Did you know I was,
Different and choosy,
And careful about it all,
Did you love me the day,
When you called me love?
Or love me at all?
Did you love me at all?
Meera is a school-going girl who moved to another city and will be joining her new school soon. She’s excited, nervous and ready to explore where life takes her. Starting her school life and making friends, she questions about Love. While she tries to make friends in school, she finds her world in the books she reads. Will Meera find her true love? Where will life take Meera?
Jeevika is in college and has created a space for herself on social media as an influencer. With the sudden fame comes consequences, how will she deal with them?
Nirvi has moved to the new city and is trying to make her space in corporates. With each milestone, her confidence is boosted until she goes on the trip with her boss! What will happen next?
Love is not simple, it’s always messy. When love happens, all that takes a backseat, more often than not. Not all endings are happy endings. Some are normal endings, some are difficult endings and some are surprising endings. As much as we happen to life, life happens to us and it gets us, no matter where we hide.
Being Loved by Ipsita Pradhan is the story of these three women who found love at different phases of their lives. The question is, is it, true love? Will they experience what it is like to be loved?
These are the stories with simple plots and crisp narratives where Ipsita gives readers a sneak peek into the lives of Meera, Jeevika and the other person. What I loved is these stories are at different phases of life. Meera is a schoolgirl, while Jeevika is enjoying her college days and Nirvi, making her space in the corporate world.
The stories are delightful and with open endings. I loved the way Meera’s story started with Krishna’s Meera. Each story is good and has its own essence but I would have loved it if there were some more twists and characters in each story.
With easy language and a promising writing style, Ipsita beautifully share how these Women experienced Love in their own way. I liked how she describes the family support and the bond, the never-ending friendship and the spirit of never losing hope in each story.
It’s a good read but I felt something missing. It could have been more interesting with twists and characters. The stories felt a bit plain and simple. I liked Jeevika’s story the most among all the three and of course climax of the last story.
I would like to read more about each character and how they dealt with the situations they were in. Overall it’s a light, delightful and quick read that you count on.
It is a good feeling to be loved. But unwanted attention and love are not always welcome.
The book has three short stories about three different girls. It is all about life happening to them, as they try to make their way in the present. Meera is going to a new school. Jeevika is managing her time with college and social media. Nirvi is new to office.
Sometimes we fall in love. Sometimes love makes us fall. It is less about what we want and what life wants from us. Life has a funny way of being a suspense. We do not know what is going to happen in our lives next. No one does. That makes all of our lives a suspense. When It comes to love, most of us think about rosy pictures. But love is not always rosy. It is often cruel, painful and full of difficulties. You might have an idea of what you want in a partner, what you can give to a partner and what you plan to happen. But when love happens, all that takes a backseat, more often than not. Not all endings are happy endings. Some are normal endings, some are difficult endings and some are surprising endings. As much as we happen to life, life happens to us and it gets us, no matter where we hide.
