The bestselling author, who is also known as the King of Romance, released yet another powerful and tragic love story amidst huge applause by his fans. He also read out excerpts from his book and engaged the audience in his captivating story about young dreams and ambitions set in the famed Delhi University, creating a life-like atmosphere of what goes on in the world of student politics.
Speaking about the book, the author of 'I Too Had A Love Story' said, "It is an emotional love story between two opposite people- a small-town girl who raises her voice against crime against women and a boy who is her senior and is involved in student politics. This book, which has a female protagonist who is a whistle blower but eventually pays the price for it, addresses several burning issues of the society and also addresses the problems faced by the North-East students these days".
"Though the book is set in the backdrop of college politics in Delhi University, I haven't mentioned the name of the college or the student body, or used any pseudo-names, to leave it to people's imagination as well as emphasize that these things are common place and can happen anywhere, thereby calling for action", he added.
Talking about the inspiration behind this book, he said, "I drew inspiration from the revolution that emerged after the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case which shook the entire nation. The book begins with the revolution then moves to the center of the story and back to the revolution. This revolution, which was the aftermath of the brutal rape incident, is the only real account in this fictional book".
The book launch, which saw the author signing copies of the book and interacting with his fans, was preceded by a flash mob at the metro station, which made the evening special.
