Family Matters - an anthology - GODYEARS

Family Matters - an anthology

November 14, 2013

The new anthology collection which I can say I'm proud to be a part of was offically released last weekend in Hyderabad. "Family Matters" by Nivasini Publishers is an international anthology featuring authors and poets from over 9 different countries. 

As you can guess, the bond between family members plays a vital part in all the stories within this book. Proceeds from the book will go to Sphoorti, an NGO for under-priviliged children including orphans and those children who are abandoned.

For details of the book launch, I will divert you to Nivasini's blogpost on it. / their Facebook page.

My own story within the book, "A Mother's Touch" is something that is different from what people usually expect from me... no humour, romance or violence. It's a story of faith and looking beyond the obvious. 

"When a tourist on vacation wakes up to find her daughter having an acute episode of asthma and realizes that there are no medicines at hand, an unlikely saviour arrives in response to her silent prayer for help." 

 Personally, I was/am apprehensive about this story because A) it isn't a genre I am usually good at and B) writing from a mother's point of view is definitely alien to a dork like me. But some of those fears have been allayed with fellow blogger's Bhavana's kind words after reading the story (link here). Thanks Bhavana.

I don't have links for online purchase of the book yet. So for now, to get a copy of "Family Matters", kindly email nivedita(at)nivasini.com
