A love story with no eye contact...

Autistically yours

A love story with no eye contact…

The world of Dev Singh and Meera Desai is different. Both are diagnosed with autism. And both perceive love and beauty differently.

Their challenge: Forget about love; nobody wants to be even friends with them.  Not in school. Not in college. And not even in their workplaces.

But Dev and Meera believe there is someone special waiting for them. Somewhere in this vast, wide, world. Dev wears a suit every day and carries a rose in his hand hoping to give it to his chosen one someday.

Meera prefers spending time with her ideal friend—a sketch of a man she drew herself—a man in a dark suit and a Mandrake’s hat. She believes her ideal friend is someone who is not judgemental and will never leave her alone.

The problem: Dev and Meera live thousands of miles apart. Meera in Mumbai; Dev in Kalimpong, a picturesque small town in Northern West Bengal.

Explore Dev and Meera’s journey as they travel across India in search of each other.

Will they fall in love? And will their relationship survive the dire predictions made by the specialists?

Share their joys, sufferings and heartbreaks as Dev and Meera battle their own inner demons in search of a solution that may work. For them.

Sample text:


Every person nurses a dream. That he or she will find his/her soul mate someday.

I am no different. I too want to fall in love like any “normal” human being.

Except—that “people like me,” as experts assert, can NEVER experience love.

The reason?

That when I was young, I was diagnosed with autism, a mental disorder that affects adversely one’s ability to communicate and to form relationships.

An English dictionary defines love as a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person; the unselfish, loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another….

I have been told that I am wired in such a way that I cannot experience a “profoundly tender, passionate affection” for ANYONE.

That I can NOT understand human emotions.

That my concern for any other person will NEVER be benevolent or unselfish.

So, forget about love.

Which means I won’t be able to find my dream girl.

The problem is: I still dream of falling in love.

I still see myself as a married gentleman in the not-too-distant future.

And trust me, I can understand human emotions very well, IF I try hard.

It’s just that—I cannot express myself that well.

Or pick on social cues.

Every day when I step out of the house, I wear a dark suit. It is very important to make a good first impression. My shirt and trousers are ironed. My hair is neatly parted.
