Seeking Redemption By Madhu Vajpayee

Presenting Seeking Redemption by Madhu Vajpayee.

The Blurb:

Story of a girl Meera, who is unwittingly drawn into a conflict from where she finds it difficult to emerge unscathed. It’s her journey from being a simple, medical graduate belonging to a middle class family to the uncharted territories of corruption and caste-based politics. Her path is crossed by two men, both compelling yet completely contrasting characters, who are going to change her life forever. If it is Aman Sharma who can challenge her ideals, defy her resolves and make her the person she finally becomes, it is Abhay Bharti’s sublime love which enables her to go through the vicissitudes of life. It’s also the story of her loss as well as triumph against her own demons to find her true self.

Book Review: Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time Edited By Saravana Kumar Murugan

Presenting Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time Edited by Sarav.

The Blurb:

True friendship is defined as a natural and spontaneous reaction towards a person with unconditional love and ultimate support to a person in all areas of life. A true friend is the one who is always with you when the entire world rejects you. A true friend is like a mirror who reflects the real you to you. In this unpredictable world of twists and rough roads, a true friend is a blessing, a rejuvenating factor, and is always fresh. Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time by Shades Publications, cherishes such true friendship, and this collection of 25 short stories on Friendship is a dedication the all true friends in this world.
