There are a lot of stories in this world, each of them significant in their own small way. Some of them connect to our lives in ways that we cannot fathom; some of them seem to strike a chord somewhere deep inside. This story - perhaps seemingly simple, yet deeply heartfelt - was born in a place inside me where melancholy meets happiness. And because most lives are interesting amalgamations of joy and sorrow, I do wish that this story connects with you in some way.
All the incidents in this book are fictional, yet the feelings are most certainly real. And perhaps some of the true feelings that percolate through the words in these pages will somewhere meld with the true feelings in your heart. Every part of this story, every page of this book, is written in the hope that it will touch some part of you that is yet untouched.

Every journey begins with a chase. We chase success. We chase love. We chase happiness. But what happens when that chase is suddenly interrupted by a long wait? Will love endure that wait? And will that wait ever end? Will all roads be closed? Or will an uneasy path open up somewhere?
Rainy Days is the story of Raghav and his pursuit of love in the midst of success, of Megha and her own world of wavering thoughts. It's a journey that begins with a chance encounter. It's a journey that takes them through sweet meetings and doleful partings, through long drives and silent walks, through the endless rain of joy and melancholy - a journey that inevitably brings them to the crossroads of love and life, more than once. It's about the choices that life gives us, about the paths that we take, and the ripple effect that it has on our lives.
