Love just happens without any reason, and often with someone we least expect. Love gives us strength even when we are at our vulnerable most. “Laila and Manju” weaves a heart-wrenching tale of love that doesn’t need to pretend.

It should inspire us all to look beyond relationship labels and hyphenated societal conventions.
