Fiction
Second Spring

Synopsis: 

This is Avantika's heartfelt journey through love and life

As a smart, successful, thirty-eight-year-old, single mother Avantika  seemingly has it all: a great career as a seasoned banking professional, respect and admiration from her peers as an able leader, fulfillment as a mother, and so many other things besides.

What is it then that drives her towards Rohan, a man six years her junior? He's a man who ideally would not occupy much room in Avantika's otherwise sorted mind space.

She has told herself she has no time for love.  Then, why does she make the choices she makes? Is it the sameness and banality of everyday existence? Is it the emotional vacuum? A need to relive life? A feeling that life as she is truly lived and felt is passing her by?

However, as she struggles with her feelings, Avantika and Rohan part ways… only to meet again. To what end? Why does Rohan want her back… and why now?

So many questions! Very few answers!

Avantika's journey is as spiritual as it is emotional. Can love give second chances? Join Avantika in the twists and turns of her story, through her ponderings over the mysteries and vagaries of the word “love,” the complexities of human relationships, and the reassessment of all the values she has held dear…
