The Story Of A Long Distance Marriage
by Siddhesh Inamdar
The love story of our times.
Disarmingly honest and achingly sweet, The Story of a Long-Distance Marriage chronicles an ordinary couple’s tale of extraordinary love for each other.
“We’ll always have each other to come back to.”
Rohan and Ira’s life takes an unexpected turn when Ira decides to leave for New York to study. They’ve been married for only fifteen months, but this is the opportunity of a lifetime, and Rohan is not going to come between his wife and her dream. So, sad but supportive, he stays back in Delhi, where he is on the brink of a promotion at a national daily. After all, his relationship with Ira is strong enough to survive the distance—they are new-age lovers who don’t let marriage come in the way of careers and ambitions.
Rohan prepares for a year without Ira, getting by with a little help from his friends: Yusuf, his on-call confidant who lives in Bangalore; Alisha, a colleague he likes catching up with over tea; and Tanuj, his new role model at work. Life without Ira is going surprisingly well. Until the day, that is, she reveals the real reason she left.
Filled with the sights and sounds of Delhi and contemporary pop-culture references, The Story of a Long-Distance Marriage plots the ever-changing definition of love over both time and distance.
