Here’s my take on Our Impossible Love by Durjoy Datta
Life teaches us what ‘love’ truly is
And love gives definition to ‘life’
Aisha, a bit of a late bloomer, has to figure out what it means to be a woman and
to be desired. Danish feels time is running out for him and he’s going to end
up as a nobody, as opposed to his overachieving, determined younger brother.
Life takes a strange turn when Danish, the confused idiot, is appointed as the
student counsellor to Aisha. Between the two of them they have to figure out love,
life, friendship—most of all, themselves. And it’s not proving to be . . . easy?

the story goes. It’s a book based on life… Hell no! It’s a part of Aisha Paul and Dinesh Roy’s
a cute seventeen year old school going girl who gets attention for her sexy
figure and a lot of rumors in her name but she doesn’t give a damn. She shows
herself as arrogant bully but an innocent pure child at heart. But as most of
the teenagers she loves the attention she gets. Let alone it’s for her body
parts. And Danish, He is a 23 year old adult? We may say. This guy is still a
struggling undergraduate at the starting but fails and ends up as a school

brother Ankit has out-shined him in all fields. But he already loves his brother
too much to get angry at him for his achievements.

Aisha and describing the disappointment Danish felt in himself. Then the way
they end up finally meeting each other as Danish got a job (finally after lot
of drama) of a counselor in Aisha’s school. And how some new relations,
actions, deeds, motives, secrets unfolds and how Aisha gets trapped. How Danish
becomes her knight in shining armor even when she is not a damsel in distress.
How they end up… For that you need to read the story.
style of narration is good; it includes POV from both the protagonists. In fact
two or three from Sarthak Paul, Aisha’s brother side too. The plot is pretty
good revolving around the recent social topic that’s “Rape or forced sex by
boyfriend”… Okay I revealed a bit too much. For
more—go for this book. A cool topic picked by the author, as I always look
forward to him for a different thingy. It includes a very good social message,
which should take a still stand in our society.
