Since childhood, I was fond of reading and my shelves were stacked with different kinds of books and magazines and this reading habit gave birth to my writing skill.
My inner desire was to get my writings published giving shape to a novel.
Being the eldest of five, I was married off early and got totally engrossed in family life, managing kids, husband and household and could not take time out for myself.
After shouldering off my responsibilities, once again I diverted my attention towards my reading & writing habit.
I dusted the journals that I was carrying in my shelves and synchronized them and sent to various publishers to get it published.
Thankfully, one of the leading publishers of Mumbai accepted my work and today I received the paperback of my publication.
I can’t scribble my emotions in words…I am speechless.
