The Second Life

For aspiring authors, the day when their work becomes published for the first time is the harbinger of a new life. A second Life. Moreover, my dream has come true. From a writer, I have graduated to an Author.

I feel blessed doubly, because the first anthology that I am part of is The Second Life, by Write India Publishers. The Write India team selected 25 life changing stories that will inspire you, after a nation wide hunt for inspiring stories. The editor is best selling author Bhavya Kaushik and it is compiled by Prakash Kumar. The collection has a bonus gift of renowned authors like Preeti Singh contributing to an anthology for the first time.

The Blurb: "There comes a moment in your life when you feel terribly vulnerable, helpless without any hope and faith, and alas you forget the fact - your helplessness can never leave you irreparably shattered. Trust me, sometimes at this very moment, 'newness' from nowhere will intervene in your life and change everything. Just everything. That newness brings in front of you a more inspirational and exciting journey known as THE SECOND LIFE."
