Arnav is the Vice- Captain of the Indian Cricket Team, and is considered no less than a semi-god, in the country where, cricket is not just a sport ; it’s a religion.
The game is not only his passion ;it runs in his DNA.
He is 27 years old, and has been given the three more years time limit, to live his passion and continue his career as a cricketer, because by the age of 30, he is expected to take a back seat from the sport, and step into the world of business and trade ,just like his father(Arun Singh Raizada), did.
Apart from being the vice captain of the Indian cricket team, Arnav is also an heir to the Raizada Business Empire, which his grandfather had started to build, almost five decades ago, but because of his grandfather loved the game and was a big fan, he had encouraged his son’s (Arun)talent in cricket and had nurtured his sons dream of playing the game for the country. But due to the sudden heart attack, that had claimed his fathers life, Arun Raizada had to step down from his flourishing cricket career at the age of 30,and take the hold on the reins of the business empire that his father had built from scratch.
As a doting father, Arun Raizada had spotted the dna for the love of the game, in his son at a very young age,and had encouraged his son to live his passion and his dreams just like his father had done.But as the business soar to newer heights, his grandmother and mother’s, worry grew too, what if the growing pressures of handling such a huge empire by himself had a negative impact on the health of his father?. So they asked him for a promise – a promise, that he would draw a timeline in between his life so as to balance out his love for the game, and his duties as the heir to the Raizada business empire, which was the dream off his grandfather, a dream that had to live on down the generations. And because, both business and the game were equally a part of his dna, he had agreed to the promise, that his mother had asked off him. It was the least he could do for his family, who had always been so supportive and loving.
Arnav loves the person he becomes on the pitch and the crazy rush of adrenaline as he dawns the jersey and helmet every game, however being a celebrity in the cricket world, comes with its own set of challenges - the love and the constant scrutiny, that people shower on him is for the game he play’s, and amongst all the fan frenzy, competitive matches, harsh judgements,and the never ending expectations, the showbiz and the glamour attached to the sport, people often forget to look beyond the surface and know him as a person for who he really is, deep within.
And his whole Life has been all about the great expectations that is expected from him, and the responsibility that comes with shouldering it all,in regards to both cricket and business, that he has never really got the time to pause and explore the expectations of his heart?
And he often wonders, will he ever really meet someone, who will see beyond the surface and look at him for who is really is, deep within?
Khushi is a young, beautiful, happy go lucky girl,who is trying to wade her way through the adversities Life had thrown her way.
She is 22 years old, and was born in Cape Town, South Africa and has lived there all her Life.Her parents had migrated to the country long ago, and they lived a simple yet comfortable life in the country, which wasn’t their own, but was home. Her parents ran a Indian restaurant in the city and they were a happy family of four, her mother , father , herself and her younger brother krish.
Krish was eight years younger to her,and like any other teenage boy of Indian origin, he was a die hard fan of the game of cricket. Her parents had finally given in to his request of wanting to see a cricket match for real, which was scheduled to happen between India and South Africa in Johaneusburg, a year ago.
A day she could never forget, for it was the fateful day that changed her Life forever.The plane that was flying her family to Johaneusburg, crashed, killing everbody on it,and just like that in a moment, her settled Life came crashing down around her.
She had lost it all.Her family, and her home, because she never knew that her parents had mortaged it all for the loan, for her education.And in a desperate need of not wanting to have any outstanding debt in the name of her dead parents, Khushi had sold the restaurant to settle it all. And now she was just finding a way out of coping up with Life and its twists.She knew her parents would have wanted for her to go on with a strong face and live life no matter what,and that’s what she was doing.
But amongst the harsh reality’s of her Life, she doesn’t have any time for love or the expectations of the heart.For Love was luxury, she couldn’t really afford to have in her Life.
He is rakishly handsome and a world famous cricketer, the vice captain of the Indian cricket team,and she is the girl next door from Cape town, who is fighting her way through life.
In the gameboard of Destiny, by a sudden unexpected roll of a dice, a chance encounter, in a small coffee shop in the busy streets of Cape Town, results in a conversation that leads to an instant connection in between the Arnav and Khushi ;and their different worlds and Life converge into a common point for that little shortwhile.
Will their connection last through the lanes of virtual online conversations that follow post their meet,and be able to transcend into something real??
Their worlds are staunchly apart, and their lives don’t have any common point of convergence, but will they have the courage to carve out a path towards each other and realise that sometimes, all that matters is that Love that has the power to - Hit Wicket the Heart!
Welcome to a Tale of modern day love, in which love has to dodge and jump and make its way through the complicated realities, to finally hit wicket the hearts that are meant to beat as One.
Tada!! Let me know what you guys think of the plot! I was thinking of starting this post xmas as I'm leaving on a mini vacation,however I thought of posting the introduction at least to get a feedback from you all.
Let me know guys.
Thanks & Happy Holidays to All.
