About the Book :
“This is not only a story rather it is real confession of a lover”
The story revolves around VIREN who is a day dreamer, an egoistic, a hopeless romantic and an attention seeker afflicted with a bizarre madness and arrogance engulfing him. It is the story of his life which encompasses love, dedication, eccentricity, friendship and overall his discovery of his true love and also the anguish of losing it due to his obstinacy and self-centeredness. It is a repertoire of moments coated with velvetiness of love and bruised by the thorns of betrayal. It highlights the situations which ultimately turn him into a devil, who wants to annihilate the whole world with his impiety, consequences being the least he cares about; and eventually loses his happiness, identity and even himself in this process.
I could neither speak in words, nor could ever write it down
The loneliness, the emptiness your absence left behind....
Those moments spent in the warmth of your cuddle
Still linger in a cruel heart...... in a guilty mind!!!
Whenever I dream, I see you so tranquil
Can I trace the reason of my going away and getting back never?
If by closing my eyes I see you happy sweetheart, I promise I shall close my eyes FOREVER!

The story is worth a 4 star, but I gave it a 5 because the story was so related to me.. I could see me in Viren (the lead role of the story)... There are no others to describe the story.. It is a definite read.. It is not possible to believe that this is the author's first book.. A heart gripping read...
After a long time I came across something original and fresh in the name of love. There has been numerous stories of chasing and finding one’s love but Vinit Bansal’s ‘I m heartless’ is different as it’s a story of finding one’s true love and then loosing it in ignorance. If finding a true love is a blessing then loosing a true love is equally catastrophic. Sometimes true love is just around but we fail to recognize it and by the time we acknowledge it...its too late. Words coated with deep felt emotions are spreading their fragrance throughout the novel and what makes it class apart is the honest treatment of events and characters. Protagonist of the novel, Viren, seems so real that anyone ends up finding a shade of his/her own self in his character. In other words it’s a deep psychological postmortem of present day youth which is often charged with aimlessness, confusion, wrong priorities, a lost generation but in essence a never understood generation. It peeps into the minds of new generation through its characters how they think, how they react in certain circumstance and how they take life. Vinit has successfully portrayed the damaging effects of guilt on a human heart. Set in the backdrop of a university this another heart-touching campus novel proves that love naturally finds its place midst of books and pressure of exams. The awe-inspiring narrative is so beautifully encapsulated that any student can find the reflection of his/her own campus in the novel. The captivating plot didn’t allow me to leave the story for a second or third sitting. It needs to be gulp-down in one go to relish the intoxicating taste of love to the fullest. Hope this mix bag of velvetiness of love, true love, betrayal, hatred, guilt and innocence will keep thrilling the readers for long.
