She’s not rich, nor powerful; or tall or beautiful
she’s not always smiling ear to ear, rather sometimes sits in a puddle of tears;
she’s not strong as nails, she’s made of skin and bones and feelings we all entail…
despite it all, she’s not your average girl-next-door, she’s seen a fair bit of all;
she’s not ‘Superwoman’ for sure, but A Super Woman she strives to be;
just like you, and you and you and us all.
A few years ago (read decades!)…
…a girl was born in the Cultural Capital of India, Calcutta, and thereon raised in the Nawabi town of Lucknow. As a child, she couldn’t have asked for more (or as was in the good ol’ days there were no issues of expensive toys, branded clothes or foreign holidays). Life was…well…simpler.
Growing up in the big bad Capital of India, Delhi, in one of its snootiest pin-codes, ensured she grew up to be somewhat of a spoilt brat, her only saving grace being the genetic disposition she inherited thanks to an ‘intellectual’ Surdi family (no-pun intended…yea rite!). A near-fatal mysterious ‘episode’ as a child didn’t dampen her spirits, nor did her irregular heartbeat or the news of a condition that she took time to pronounce correctly.
That was the one word she would use to describe her self – alive-n-kickin’ despite all the strange brushes with death. She simply had to make the most of this one life she was given, a life so uncertain and therefore all the more beautiful. And so, despite her carefree disposition, she managed to ace her education and worked her way up the corporate ladder in Sales & Tech, in India and London (read selling, begging, ass licking, posing smart, talking sense…sigh).
From Delhi to Bombay, Bangalore to Gurgaon she discovered the one place her heart felt was home, London. But as fate would have it, she was called back to millennium city of Gurgaon. Two decades of working across the globe, running after ‘success’, chasing the typical dream, and thankfully exploring 15 countries, she had seen pretty much all.
and when she anchored this ship back into the sleepy dock,she spent the next one month nursing her shattered dreams. Till one day, when she stopped. Stopped it all. To simply Come Undone… and let her laidback-inner-child guide her over-achiever-brain.
…emerged Her First Book.
A book that took her back, back to where it all started;
All the moments she lived through, the people that touched her life,
Her journey to find the meaning in life took her through all the moments that gave meaning to her life; moments that made her the person she is, flawed but real.
Read her debut book, a Non-fiction that’s descried by many as the most ‘unconventional self-help book’; real and raw, funny & witty (surprise, surprise!), inspirational and motivational (had to use the buzzwords, right!); a must-read and keeper for life; the perfect first-time self-help book for a reader…any reader, as long as he/she has the time to explore, is his/her top priority in life, and has the desire and some guts to re-discover the self.
