Can Shaan and Ruhi face their biggest fears and unite together?
Shaan and Ruhi Ahuja, very much in love Indian newlyweds, discover each other in Simi K. Rao’s Now and Forever—the sassy and sexy sequel to Inconvenient Relations. After getting the scare of their lives while traveling in the Grand Canyon, Shaan and Ruhi go back home to one dilemma after another. Shaan’s job is in jeopardy, and one of Ruhi’s closest friends, Sunshine, needs her. How will Shaan and Ruhi handle life’s hurdles, while still trying to get to know each other as husband and wife? Will they be able to forsake all others and consolidate their relationship?
An unforeseen error has caused this algorithm to malfunction. Can you rerun the program?
Shaan was puzzled. He was very sure everything had been working perfectly on his initial submission. Then, what had come up in the interim? He ran the test again, and sure enough it got stuck, but without giving him any clue as to what had gone wrong. Almost as if a bug had sneaked its way into the system.
He spent the following three hours going over the entire program with a fine tooth comb. At last, his patience paid off when he discovered the culprit—a discrete piece of code that was completely out of sequence.
He frowned, not able to comprehend how he had let such a trivial error slip by. It was so glaring and obvious that even a half-wit undergrad could fix it. So why hadn’t the rock stars of the testing team?
“Because they are morons. All of them! All talk and zero substance!” He thumped the desk with the heel of his palm so hard that it sent helter-skelter half of the bric-a-bracs he had managed to accumulate over the years.
As he picked them up one by one from the carpeted floor, Shaan tried to console himself. ‘Always keep the inventors on their toes’ was the unspoken mantra at his work place adopted as a holy doctrine by each and every employee.
