 Which character of the Novel is your favorite and why? Answer not being Ajay but as a reader

 Answer : Bhavna is my favorite character because she is full of life and really inspiring.
I am quoting her ideology:
There are two kinds of personalities. There are those who have everything and still complain as if they have nothing. And there are those who lose everything and act like life has given them everything. Sometimes both these personalities exist in the same soul. Kill the first one, I love the second, inspires me every day.
