Anyone who speaks to Ritu Kakar over the phone or interacts with her over messenger or chat will mistake her for a 16-18-year-old youngster who is bubbling with vivacity & passion. The positive attitude of this die-hard romantic belies her age. It probably has a lot to do with the environment at home. You know her as Ritu Kakar, the Contemporary Romance Author. I know her as a doting mother, loving wife, dutiful daughter-in-law, darling daughter, cute sibling and an amazing 3-am-friend. One chilly winter morning, I visited Ritu Kakar for a steaming hot cup of chai with Parle G biscuits & some gup shup. Rarely does one come across an individual who speaks with so much honesty, passion and innocence. I have had the honour of editing Love Unexpected for Ritu Kakar & it has been one of the sweetest romance stories I have ever read.

Through this post, I want to convey the sheer positivity that life brings. There are and have always been reasons to worry about our future & our well-being. We are the generation that has grown up in one of the worst phases of India & since there was no outlet called social media, we learned to express ourselves in a socially acceptable & responsible manner to a closed group of people. If there was an issue, we tackled it the way it needs to be. We didn't go crazy pasting posters on the walls of people who disagreed with our opinions. Social media gives us the power to write anything on anyone's post & it's our choice whether we want to write/comment on a post. The choice is yours: remain toxic or learn to express assertively.
