A Little Bit of Love by Arva Bhavnagarwala – Loved Reading It!

This is for the first time, I have picked up romantic fiction, but let me tell you, I didn’t regret doing that. Reading a love story is certainly a soothing experience. Here is what A Little Bit of Love by Arva Bhavnagarwala is all about.

Little Bit About A Little Bit of Love

“A Little Bit of Love” is not just another romantic tale; it’s a narrative that brings the concept of “love” to life in all its varied forms. Arva, the author, has skillfully crafted a memorable and refreshing story. What stands out is the refreshing departure from the usual portrayal of the characters seen through the lens of Bollywood.

The main character Afrah, is a young woman full of ambition, resilience, love, and life. She is focused on her career and strives to be financially independent. Her pursuit often leads to clashes with her mother, who insists on her “settling down.” Fortunately, Afrah’s father supports her aspirations. Marriage isn’t on her radar until fate introduces Sadiq, a medical student, into her life. This marks the beginning of a sweet and memorable relationship between the two.

Arva’s storytelling skill is evident, and it’s hard to believe that this is her debut work. The success of the story lies in her detailed and authentic depiction of the city and its inhabitants. Mumbai comes to life through her narrative, capturing the essence of local trains, monsoons, life in chawls, roadside eateries, the struggles of the working class, and the dreams of the youth. A significant city tragedy plays a crucial role in the storyline, but the main characters, like the city itself, show resilience and learn to thrive despite the shocks and disasters.

Other than Afrah and Sadiq, the other characters are also well-potrayed. The dynamics of Afrah’s relationship with her parents differ significantly from Sadiq’s, and this contrast is portrayed so vividly, allowing readers to appreciate the diversity in parenting styles.

Familial bonds, sibling relationships, friendships, careers, goals, and dreams are at the core of this beautiful story. The themes are interwoven seamlessly, adding depth and richness to the narrative.
