I am a big book geek and I have read all the books of Mr. Chetan Bhagat. I have even seen all the movies based on his books. When Blogadda shared that they are coming up with the contest for the Half Girlfriend movie , I was more than eager to write for it and share the story of one of my very good friend and his half relationship cum half girlfriend.  Due to privacy reasons, I have given a different name to the character.  My friend Aman Mehra, a tall, charming young man, fresh out of his MBA college and excited to join his first job.

This character has just brought a different perspective and made me think of him as my spirit animal that just guide me and help me with my normal daily life.

Flare starts catching up to Newt and slowly he becomes a different person who s
