Nala Damayanti is a short story referred to in the Indian Epic Mahabharata. It has all the elements of a perfect love story. For that alone it could be read.
From Hindu point of view this story if read would remove Kali Dosha.

Oneday a brahmin came to his court. On learning of his bachelorstatus he suggested the name of Damayanti, the daughter of theKing of Vidarbh. He painted such an impressive picture of theprincess that Nala fell in love with her without seeing her.At that it was uncustomary for a man to present his suit. He had towait for the woman, or her father, to make the first move. Nalapined for Damayanti and began to neglect his state duties. Hespent long hours in the garden of his palace dreaming about her. Agroup of swans lived in the lakes in the garden. They dailyobserved the despondent king wasting his time. One day theleader of the swans approached the king and asked him what thematter was. The king informed the swan that he was in love withDamayanti but was unable to press his suit. He did not even knowif Damayanti was in love with someone else. Custom preventedhim from going to Vidarbh himself and this was too delicate amission to entrust to someone else."If you think fit I can deliver your message," said the swan. Nalalighted up. At last there was an end to his immediate problems.
