Interviewer: Any message for readers regarding the book?
Raunak Sarkar: Sometimes we need to accept the fact that no matter how much we try and how much efforts we give in our relationship, if the other person doesn’t want to stay then neither you can do anything nor you can change the outcome or the end result. It’s when we start blaming our destiny whereas there is nothing called destiny in life, it’s basically our deeds which are responsible for the outcome.
