Of Choices & Chances

Author | Dinshaw Karanjia Publisher | StoryMirror Infotech Pvt. Ltd. ISBN | 9788119445967 Pages | 118

About the Book:

They say that ‘Casablanca’ is the greatest romantic movie of all time. Though romance is something very personal and individualistic, others crave to know about it and over time they have classified it depending on its degree of intensity.

Broadly love can be grouped into 3 categories:


The most common one symbolized by Maine Pyar Kiya, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and the like.


Love transcending the barriers of time and space, represented by Milan, Lamhe, and Sleepless in Seattle.


Love that did not realize but never diminished, epitomized by Mughal-e-azam, Devdas, Sholay (Amitabh and Jaya track), and Titanic.

But could there be a love story, which had it all? Could there be three different endings to one romance? Yes. Jee Ha. Aur agar aap ko use jaanna hai, use pehchanna hai, use mehsoos karna hai, to aao. Aao thoda rumani ho jaye, kyunki ‘Dil Mere, Tu Deewana Hai!’

Plus, bonus short stories based on timeless Hindi film songs including

Ae Zindagi, Gale Laga Le

Chookar Mere Mann Ko

Ae Mere Humsafar

Jaane Woh Kaise Log The

Mitwa Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin

Kya Kare Kya Na Kare

Tere Bina Zindagi

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

Baahon Ke Darmiyaan

Teri Yaad Saath Hai
