From the Jacket: The dilemmas involved in the process of falling in love, love itself and marriage continue to perplex and torment. More often than not, the ecstasy of romantic love dissolves into anger, disillusionment, and finally, resentment.

Taking the reader through the entire journey of love with its tumultuous ups and downs, Rashna Imhasly-Gandhi, a practising psychologist, helps us understand our psyche, examine our expectations - conscious and subconscious, and then reveals what actual loving is all about. Using the Radha-Krishna, Shiva Shakti myths, she paves a practical path towards solving marital crises, activating inner healing and sustaining love.
