Forever In My Heart by Arindam Dey [Paper Clip Books, Rs 100] is a tale of eternal love between Rishav Agarwal and Saanjh Saxena in the hilly climes of Kullu and Manali. It transcends time, barriers, manipulation and even disease to give the readers a soppy Bollywood saga.

The book starts with an accident, when both Rishav and Saanjh were in school. Thus ends their chance of elopement and puts their romance on hold.

Cut to 18 years ahead. Rishav teaches stage history in Shimla and sees very disturbing images. Saanjh works in a magazine in Calcutta. Both have failed to move on.

Enter Josephine D’Souza, a budding actress with a crush on Rishav. Before you know it, she’s slashed her wrist to be honest to her character on stage! She has to have Rishav at all cost, but only to win a bet.

Back to Saanjh. She suddenly learns that Rishav is still alive and rushes to meet him in Manali. But she is attacked by the driver of her car and falls into the Beas.

Saanjh is rescued and nursed to health by none other than Rishav’s mother. But Rishav fails to recognise his love, thanks to Josephine’s manipulations and forces his mother to drive Saanjh away.

Enter guilt. Josephine feels bad and starts visiting Saanjh in hospital and eventually tries to bring the two together, coming to terms with her own troubled past and realising her love for her classmate Ankit.

But Rishav has a mental disorder. Ultimately love and sacrifice win the day, Josephine becomes an angel while Ankit is left with... well nothing.
