Spotlight and Review of Love and Curses by Sunita Saldhana
Love & Curses by Sunita Saldhana
When Amber meets Shardul, her heart starts doing somersaults and it seems as if her body has forgotten how to breathe. She has never been so strongly attracted to anyone before. But beneath the physical attraction, there is something else that she struggles with. Why does he seem so familiar when she is sure she has never met him before? And why has she suddenly started waking up each morning with tears running down her cheeks, haunted by the same dream every night?
Shardul has been waiting for Amber forever. But fate conspired to keep them apart. He could not forget what she could not remember. Now that he had finally found her, would she open her heart to love or would he lose her forever?
Love and Curses is a story of two lovers Amber and Shardul where destiny did not favor their union in the first place. The author started the story with the background of Amber and her struggles allowing this character to get a warm spot in the reader's heart. Then she peeled the layers off the past of the couple in a slow-motion rhythmic fashion showcasing all the emotions of Amber while she is fighting the attraction for Shardul in the present. Shardul on the other hand is alluring her in many ways so that she could remember the past that he could not forget. It's an interesting take to Hindu mythology of reincarnation. This is my first time reading this author, and 'am delighted for the time well spent in reading her short story.
