Ajay K. Pandey returns with another heart-wrenching love story following his immensely successful debut, "You are the Best Wife." His second book lives up to expectations, captivating readers and immersing them in the life of the protagonist and narrator, Vijay. As Vijay learns about his wife's illness, he becomes determined to do whatever it takes to ensure she receives the best medical care available. Vijay is considered a "super failure" by society's standards, having attempted numerous entrance exams and barely passing just one. With his mother's help, who has connections in the journalism field, he secures a job as an assistant professor at a college. Another challenge arises when Vijay must find a suitable bride. His matrimonial profile is embellished with exaggerated details, and unsurprisingly, every woman he meets either rejects him or is uninterested. Enter Astha, a vibrant woman who is completely different from Vijay in every way. Unexpectedly, she agrees to the match, and gradually, Vijay falls deeply in love with her. Just when he finally finds happiness in his life, fate deals him another blow as Astha tests positive for HIV. The core of the novel revolves around the lengths Vijay is willing to go to ensure Astha's survival. Throughout his journey, other significant characters such as his family and Astha's ex-boyfriend play crucial roles in shaping the narrative.
