I am a seeker of truth and higher values. A mother of two children, I am keen that the next generation is balanced and grounded which is why I made a foray into writing and wrote for them, trying to reach out to them through my writing. Writing to me is a passion and I try to convey the idea of oneness and human values to one and all.

Say something about your beginning
I trained in programming and became a software professional. Looking at the scenario around me made me wish to express my views which is where my foray into writing began. One thing led to another and I began contributing articles and then started publishing books.
What have been some of your achievements
Publishing books and being acknowledged for inspiring others to think more deeply. Making the young generation think more about humanity and human values. I have also self-published a novel Quest for Love and Enlightenment: Nuristanon Kindle recently. The novel is all about the quest of identity interwoven in the loves and lives of three generations of people in India and Afghanistan.
The story conveys the emotions of people in the pre-independence era when Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan and Mahatma Gandhi were pretty active in spreading their message of non-violence. It shows how common people were affected both by physical violence and non-inclusion in their own land.
Some pre-Independence violence and disharmony is conveyed while even the current terrorism and intolerance is brought out with the end ending on a note of hope and love. The primary message that the novel seeks to convey is the commonality of all people and their emotions and a search that all of us have for our own roots and identity. The novel ultimately brings out the fact that humanity is indeed one and our identity, no matter what the origin may be, is one of oneness, unity and love. For, we all are indeed from the same source, whatever we may call it. This has been liked by many and one could see it at.

What do you want to be acknowledged for

Anything else you wish to share
