Rising in love - Introduction

For a long time now, I have been wanting to write this story - the story of Shruti*. Now, Shruti is a dear friend and whatever I write about her here are true life experiences and since I have had access to her diaries and her text messages and her emails, all conversations in the story are real and authentic.

It is a pretty long story - an experience of a lifetime within a span of 6 months - a plethora of feelings compressed into mere words. Since it is going to take up so much time and spac, I intend to write it in parts - episodes, I would like to say, but I am not sure if they would be of equal length.

I don't know how much justice I can do to the story. I don't know if my language is good enough to put all her feelings into words. I am sure if someone else writes this, it could be better. But I was the one who understood her and I guess that is why I am writing this instead of conveying the story to someone else and getting it written by them. I guess I have understood her emotions like no one else and hence pray to God that I should be able to do justice to it.

I have tentatively titled the story as "Rising in love..." (as opposed to falling in love, because no one call ever "fall" in love. They can only rise, and rise as a better person!)

*Name changed on request


  1. Well your Sruthi is so interesting, let me see if Rising in Love commands the same interest!!! All the best!!!

  2. Well Sandhya, I have to admit that the title you have chosen “Rising in love” is itself alluring. It already made curiosity in me to riposte.Keep going...My best wishes :):)

    I really hope I am able to live up to expectations!

    "Rising in love" is something I learnt in school. Our principal Chandramathi (a few of us call her Chandri amma) used to say that when you are in love, you can never fall. Only people who say love is blind can ever fall. True love will make you rise and at no point will you feel that you fell in love.

    I hope I keep the curiosity alive with my successive posts.

  4. come on.. write/type the story .. The built up is heavy

    Thanks for your comment.
    I didn't think I was "building up" something here... I just wanted to hint that there is a real-life story that I wanted to present to the world. I'll have to wait for another month before I put it here. So I'm not buliding up... Please do read the story when it is out.
