For as long as I can remember I have always had a vivid imagination. Growing up in a school where I could not see my own reflection in the other students. I found it really hard to fit in and to be accepted as a visible minority. As a lonely child I started reading teen romance novels. They were my escape into a fantasy world and to escape the loneliness I felt deep within.
I never outgrew my passion for reading romance stories. I started reading mysteries and comedies. I fantasized different endings to books. But as I grew older and was able to fit into society, I discovered a new passion and that was storytelling. At sleepovers when my friends and I would stay awake to the wee hours of the night, at their beckoning I would conjure up a fictional story that included all of us and our love interests didnítí have to be with someone we went to school with. The heroes could have been the latest teen heartthrob of Hollywood during that period.
I also discovered a new passion for watching Bollywood movies. Bollywood is the informal name given to the popular Mumbai based hindi language movie industry in India. Bollywood plots have tended to be melodramatic. They frequently employ formulaic ingredients such as star-crossed lovers and angry parents, love triangles, family ties, sacrifice, corrupt politicians, kidnappers, conniving villains, long-lost relatives and siblings separated by fate, dramatic reversals of fortune, and convenient coincidences.Bollowood movies also consist of songs and dances, love triangles, comedy and dare-devil thrills.
Later on I went of to college but the urge for storey telling never left. It was only until I was faced with a tragic loss that I had begun to start writing. I was so overwhelmed with loss and grief that I started writing my feelings on paper and slowly the urge to put my ideas in a book came to life.
