Today is a big day for me. It has become due to your love and support and I am thankful: after all, what is a writer without readers?

I wrote a long essay on following my dreams and it was published in Good Housekeeping, India. It means a lot to me to be published in such a prestigious publication back in India. And the biggest thing: made my parents so happy! Their blessings have made all this possible and I am so glad they were able to read this.

I cut and pasted some of the photos from the story here. If you want to read the whole story, do email me and I will send it to you. It is not yet available online.
