Genre: Romantic-fiction


Mehrun is a simple and beautiful love story. The story revolves around a tall, young, and charming girl, Mehrun Khan who moves from Bhilai to Indore for her higher education in Hospital Management.

As she grew with most of her male cousins, she was more practical in nature and was usually detached from any emotional feelings. She believed in logic and therefore was emotionally strong.

The story begins with the college and hostel life, and all the fun and struggles of student life. While Mehrun made good friends like Avinav and Meera and thoroughly enjoying the new freedom, she also fell for a guy Aarush. 

Considering the difference between her and Aarush,  Mehrun decided to let go of him as she was more logical and knew the difference will always keep them apart. 

Later she decides to marry a guy from her community, chosen by her parents.

This romantic love story has its own twists and turns, which brings Mehrun closer to her love, career, and destiny.
