Of Course I Love You…! Till I find someone else

A book by Durjoy Dutta and Maanvi Ahuja

It is a story set in Delhi, during the years 2006-2008 that revolves around colleges, nightclubs, relationships and friendships. It’s about a young college going guy – Debashish Roy.

Debashish Roy, is as his name suggests, is ordinary. What’s not though is his enviable interminably long list of girls he had managed to date and taken to bed amongst other things. Things are going fine until one day, Avantika, a girl so beautiful that you would have a tendency to stab yourself back to reality, walks into his life and wrests away everything he has.  As his relationship with her gets steamier and deeper, everything else in his life gets on a fast track to one direction. Down.

It takes a dark and a hilarious view on modern day relationships in colleges. Narrated in Debashish Roys’ unsure, confused and testosterone induced voice, it takes a jibe at college time romances.

As Deb’s philandering days come to an end with Avantika who herself two times him, he sees everything from being hunted and followed around the city, getting kicked out his college placements, Deb is tested in every way possible….only to get dumped for a reason which is unfathomable even outside the realms of reality.

As Avantika and his luck desert him, he lands up with a job in his father’s firm, a government office amongst some people who aren’t his father’s best friends. He makes friends with Amit, the genius of the office, who is yet to have his first conversation with a girl, as he waits for his life to sort out. And for Avantika to come back…..

He helps Amit to propose his dream girl Aastha. Avantika returns to Deb upon Sri Guru's insistence. Deb finally finds love and friendship and gets a real life.

Though in the middle, the book gets too boring, its worth spending a day or two reading this book. To a certain extent its a 'A' certifiable book. But completely a 'no- no' to people aged beyond 40.
