In our lives, we at times get confronted with intense and traumatic events which force us to question who we are, what really matters to us and what we believe in. In some ways these events alter our sense of reality.
Each of the four stories in this book draw inspiration from such crucible events that I have had to face. The protagonists in that sense carry a bit of my own ‘experience and thought’ genes. As I see them now within the larger fabric of the stories, I do notice shades of myself and others who have been part of my life. Writing the stories has been a personal journey in that sense. At times the stories seemed to write themselves.
Come……….rejuvenate your emotions!
Swastika Bhattacharya has found her life’s calling in supporting children with special needs to take their rightful place in society. A beautiful and empowering profession.
My sense is that Swastika would relate wonderfully with Shanti and the other protagonists in ‘The Chronicler of the Hooghly and other stories’.
The book continues to make emotional waves worldwide with more than a hundred excellent ratings and reviews on Amazon.
