Shilpi Chaklanobis hails from the beautiful city of Kanpur and has spent the majority of her adult life in Delhi. She currently heads the Digital Marketing division at an MNC. The amalgamation of her years spent amongst the quite, calm streets of a small city and the hustle and bustle of a metropolitan like Delhi has lent her a unique perspective towards life.

First of all accept my apologies for responding so late. Coming to the answer of your question:

Love for me is the fuel for life. It is the driving force that keeps us going. But self-respect & identity are life. How can one sacrifice life for life fuel? It is about empowering the person you love. If I talk in context of my book “That’s How It’s Meant To Be” then actual love is what Arunabh did with Nilanjana. It is not about sitting together and looking into each other’s eyes. It is about looking at the same direction together. Nilanjana and Vikram got separated because both of them were looking into different directions. How could they become companion for life?
As I said in my book; love means to stand by someone through thick and thin, to bear every annoying thing of that person with a grin, to wipe their tears, understand them, and just be with them. And this is exactly what Arunabh did, at every stage.

Shilpi Chaklanobis For me it's simply for the love of writing. You create something unique, something special and it feels great when someone enjoys your creation.

“The beauty of love lies in the fact that it’s volatile, impulsive, and sporadic. The subject of our affection changes but the rush of emotions that feed our deepest desires and insecurities remain the same.”
