(8 minutes) * Act One: Zarna Garg had a clear plan for how she was going to find a husband. Things did not go as she expected.  (17 minutes) * Act Two: People who fall in love at first sight often describe it as a kind of magic.

And also a little envious. (10 minutes) * Act Three: Calvin is an 11 year old who is learning what love is all about, the hard way. (7 minutes) * Act Four: Writer Marie Phillips believes that magic is not just reserved for the beginning of a relationship.
