  • Blurb:

Kartik: Yes, I want to be successful, and that’s not a crime. Trust me, I too would have wanted the same as Ms. Stupid, but I can’t toss away my hard-work of years for a girl. We would have had a beautiful love story had she not been my boss’s daughter.

Sahana: I know he’s ambitious and doesn’t know his heart well. But I’m sure one day Mr. Logical will come to my way of thinking, and we’ll have a beautiful life together thereafter.
He flirted with her for five days; she waited for him for five years, only to be shattered irrecoverably one day. Logic seems to be winning the battle, until destiny refuses to move on and adamantly brings them face to face again.

In life’s moments of struggle and comfort, the heart and mind must join hands to combat.
A love story dedicated to the generation that never values what comes easy. Wish a few logics were a little less stupid. But nevertheless… Logically Stupid, That’s Love.

  • Review:

Logically Stupid, That’s Love by Shikha is a cute love story of Kartik and Sahana. Kartik is an MBA graduate, fresh out of college and specializes in Marketing. Instead of opting for a multinational company offering a fat salary, Kartik chooses to work in a startup named DataMagica, owned by Mr. Ajit Khurana., because he wants to put his potential to test and achieve the pinnacle of success. Career is on number one of his priority list. Sahana is a bubbly 20-year old girl for whom parties and shopping is everything. She has no aim in life; in fact it wouldn’t be wrong to say that career didn’t exist on her priority list. But as they say, opposites attract!

Before joining DataMagica, Ajit sends Kartik on a 5 day vacation to Goa on company expense. Upon reaching there, a girl steps out of Kartik’s car and he is as dumbstruck as the hotel manager realizing that all this while he had been driving a car oblivious of the fact that a girl had been resting peacefully in the backseat. Sahana had apparently runaway from Mumbai after refusing to marry or even appear in front of the crew of her prospective to-be family chosen by her father. They become fast friends. Kartik’s flirting along with him being chivalrous throughout tickles Sahana’s heart and she falls for him. Kartik however has no space for love or a relationship in his life. They spend quality time together on their way back from Goa to Mumbai via car and further to Delhi via train. It is only upon reaching Delhi that Kartik learns that the most beautiful girl he had ever met in his life, Sahana, is none other than the only daughter of his boss and DataMagica’s owner, Ajit.

Be it an effect of meeting Kartik, Sahana gets serious in life and gets admitted in an MBA institute. They chat each day over email. While Sahana is busy studying, Kartik soars new heights and becomes the youngest COO in history. For her internship, Sahana works at DataMagica. One fine day Ajit fires a guy for ogling at Sahana. Kartik is dumbfounded and adjudicates that he cannot ever be in a relationship with Sahana. He confronts Sahana regarding this and ends up breaking her heart. She walks away from his life, avoiding any means of contact. Throughout the book, I only asked myself 2 questions – Will she be able to stay away from him forever? Will Kartik never realize that he will never be able to find a girl better than or even equivalent to Sahana? The climax brought a bright smile on my face and I particularly loved the role of Ajit in Kartik and Sahana’s logically stupid love story!

  • Let-downs:

There were a few twists and turns which were very predictable. Although the story has been narrated brilliantly, the plot was missing its X-factor — something that would set the book apart from the usual love stories.

  • Appreciations:

Once again Shikha has managed to prove that story-telling is her forte. Brilliant narration along with smooth transitions kept me hooked to the book till the very end. Intimate moments have been described very subtly, ensuring that not much is revealed while managing to put across the exact thoughts in words. The characters have been totally justified. Kartik and Sahana managed to tickle my heart with their romance. Perfect grammar, simple vocabulary, and truck-load of emotions made the book a delightful read! And just like He Fixed The Match She Fixed Him, I see a movie being made on Logically Stupid, That’s Love, too!

  • Verdict:

An interesting roller-coaster of logically stupid love’s journey. (3.5/5)
