  2. I read the entire story within a span of two weeks, it would’ve taken me a few days but I’m another aspiring Khushi trying to become a doctor!! It is a great refreshing story and their emotional turmoil is crazy but on point! I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us readers 🙂

  6. Loving your writing and the depth of the story. I would imagine that you either work or has dealt closely with autism, which enriches the story. Also science? Being a medical-physicist myself, I loved how you webbed science, engineering and medicine into the story. It got me hooked.

  7. COPYRIGHT BREACHES – Usually, all that takes is for the owner of the copyright (the author) to report the breach to the website manager, be it Facebook, Blogger or whatever and the offending material will be removed. Most often, the account will be closed. The key thing is that the ‘owner’ and noone else can make the claim. Has this been attempted?

    I would suggest to all authors to add a copyright claim to each post and include the actions that will be taken in cases of breaches.

    What is left to say . . . disgusting!

  8. Hi ! I am so in love with this story. It tugs the strings of my heart — you write the struggles the characters have — are dealing with so eloquently. Have you written anything else besides this as well? I’d love to read more of your creations if you have written.

  9. Mira, this story is so close to reality for someone very dear to me. It’s like you’ve penned down her struggle and then her good fortune. What beautiful writing, my dear. I wish you the best.

  10. If this is your first story, I can only imagine how far you can go. From every IPKKND fanfiction I read – and I read many – this is the only one, which I think, with proper (professional) editing, is worth of publication.

    The story is meaninful. It has depth. Has heart. So, congratulations.

    I have recently came to know about your story second chance and believe me I read all the 40 chapters in one go. You are undoubtedly marvellous. I really like every chapter. Though extracts in which interaction between Mohan and Meera are written are my most favorite ones. But no doubt all chapters are simply amazing so as you. This is a request dear to update next part of second chance. Please please please please please please please dear.

    1. I have a life (which is really complicated right now)… and I am not writing for an income. I have a career… So…thats why its taking so long. I don’t know how old you are, or what your life circumstances are.. but your message has a tone of entitlement and rudeness. Perhaps that wasn’t what you intended. I am not sure. I don’t need this kind of pressure right now. So, if you don’t like waiting, you are not obliged to read my story.


  19. I am sorry dear, if I sounded rude, but that was not my intention. I have a great regard for you and your awesome work. First time, I am reading something different from IPKKND and I loved it. It got me captivated and so moved with the way you write, going into the depth of emotions that Arnav and Khushi experience with the way their lives have turned out. I must consider myself very fortunate to have come across your story. So, once again, do forgive me. I didn’t mean to be rude, but was very impatient. This was the first story, which I sat down and read all the chapters in one go. Thanks to you and your fabulous writing. God bless and take care of yourself.!!
