Can love happen twice is the second part of Ravinder Singh's bestselling novel. I too had a love story. When I compare this book with Ravinder Singh's earlier book "I too had a love story", I am a little disappointed. This book particularly lacks depth, It's a very common type of story. Ravin was so deeply in love with Khushi whom he lost in an accident and he fell in love with another girl in Belgium,just upon seeing her. After that he never mentioned his first love Khushi at all in the entire book except the final pages of the final chapter.
In this book the author focuses on Ravin's life after the death of his beloved Khushi. Ravin's three friends begin reading a handwritten copy of Ravin's incomplete second book in a radio station in Chandigarh. After a year and a half since Khushi's death, Ravin moved to Belgium in the hope of change where he met Simar, an MBA student. They start dating each other very soon and as every love story, they also have their differences and problems where both want to settle in different places after their marriage. It's a story about priorities, adjustments, expectations, judgment, and disappointments.
Anyone who has read his first book must have been touched by it- by the tragedy and the experience that someone had to go through- even though the writing was very normal/simple. The second book is almost the same as far as writing goes( exception being many lines in hindi which i think was not required in an english book)but the story is no where close to the first one. Having said that, it is still worth one read for the simplicity and Indianness!
I guess Love can happen once only but if it happens twice then it is not well written or described in this book. You can read this book if you are curious to know what happens to Ravin after the death of her true love. Otherwise, it's not worth reading.
