- Arthur Schopenhauer 3. Reading is an activity subsequent to writing: more resigned, more civil, more intellectual.
- Jorge Luis Borges 4. The greatest part of a writer's time is spent in reading in order to write. A man will turn over half a library to make a book.
- Samuel Johnson 5. Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
-Joseph Addison 6. When you read a novel, your own imagery is the most important. It's what makes reading such a wonderful thing.

My second Novel - Cherished

At last I have finished my second novel "Cherished", got it edited, and sent it for publication. The story - Grishma, accompanied by her father and her four month old baby Jyothi, boards the train to Delhi to join her husband, to surprise him with an unexpected visit. She dreams of a happy family life with him. Little does she know that her journey will end in havoc to her life. 19 years later, Grishma’s daughter Jyothi, longing for her father’s love and a family reunion determines to search for her father, despite her mother’s strong protests. She succeeds in her mission, but will he accept her as his daughter? This is the heartwarming story of Jyothi’s pursuit of parental love, which she considers her legitimate right.
