Diary of a Whimsical Lover is a story about Gaurav and Maya, two young professionals in Vancouver who must overcome many challenges to be together. Both develop an immediate connection when they meet for the first time at a party. Gaurav is mesmerized by Maya's beauty and charm, while she appreciates Gaurav's distinct sense of humour and compassionate temperament. The protagonist is an introverted Indian author who moved to Canada. Maya, on the other hand, is charming, endearing, and very well liked. The story uses first person narration.[4]
