‘Together… Always and Forever?!’ - Passionate romance in the face of contrasts


Avani Vora’s new novel portrays power of undying love binding two highly contrasting people

Pune (Dec. 23, 2014): Budding literary talent and national badminton player Avani Vora unveiled her first romance novel titled Together…Always and Forever?! at a press conference in Pune on Monday. The book was formally unveiled by renowned Marathi actress Mrinal Dev – Kulkarni.  The literary creation is a moving tale of love, loss, friendship and life and is being published by Partridge Publishing India.

Avani’s story features two friends who became lovers. Aisha the female protagonist is like a high-tide wave — challenging, uncontrolled, untamed, and full of compassion and ardour, in love with the entire world, including herself and Jay, her counterpart.  Jay on the other hand is the total opposite, a shallow wave that offers serenity peace — a staunch supporter and her analgesic. They balanced and complimented each other perfectly. They were like tea and coffee, but sugar kept them together.

The story highlights the journey of these friends highlighting their contrasts as they battle a whirlwind romance and the unpredictable turns that life throws at them.  Avani’s narration enthrals the readers who will see what happens when that sugar that keeps them knotted runs out. A thrilling read till the end that keeps the readers guessing  if the characters  will able to stay together, or if Aisha will just turn into another notch in Jay’s belt of romantic conquests.

Elaborating on her literary inspiration, Avani Vora said “Having to give up playing badminton was a very difficult thing for me to do. This book is the outcome of me channelling my pain, hurt and emotions into writing in order to heal myself. If things are meant to be they will come back to you but if not then maybe they were never yours,” In a society where depression kills more victims due to lack of understanding of relationships and love, I hope my book gives them a better understanding of the same.”

She further added ‘” My initial writing inspired my friends, giving them hope for a better future. I believe this book will also inspire its readers.”
