The Departing Point: Two people search of love...leaving love in betweenThe Departing Point: Two people search of love...leav... by Santosh Avvannavar (Author), Jyothi Byahatti (Author), Raghunath Ba...
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Adolescence is the age of feeling for somebody-caring for somebody and well, getting addicted by an addiction called love for somebody.
It is always said that love is nothing but chemical phenomena-where secretion of some hormones, some chemical composition controls it all-but who cares?
After all love is blind……

There is sudden rush of adrenaline after seeing some girl- heartbeat is going at the speed of a rocket before your first date-all types of feeling are there in a feeling named love.
And again, anything is fair in love and war-so all types of ethical and unethical manipulations are permitted.
This book is a first person account of his experience with girls-or to be more precise, his experiments with truth-written in a hilarious way.
Santosh has a witty style of writing that can discover laughter in very serious incidents-and this book is nom exception. Some of his experiences are not funny at all-in fact revealing some crude facts of human traits and psychology. but such is the fascinating style of writing that it has been converted into an amazingly light read.
As a result –we get a ready reckoner -well, you can say so –on how to go on your first date, how to win over their minds-how to be calculative (?) on the snake and ladder game.
After all love is unpredictable and case studies are necessary!

What are some grassroots approaches?
