LiFT: Tell us about your book, the journey of writing it and its content.

Shital: My journey of writing started from my first motivational book named “Chunotiya Jeevan Ka Dusra Nam”. Later I decided to write something very romantic and bold. Before starting to write this novel only one thing was in my mind “Log kya kahenge, mere teachers kya sochenge, itni sidhi sadhi ladki hoke romantic novel likhti hai”. Actually I was little scared that after publishing my romantic novel my image of “sidhi sadhi ladki” will change. But I prepared myself emotionally that being a writer I am just doing my work with full dedication. Fortunately my teachers and family appreciated my hard work to write this novel.
My novel is based on a beautiful, interesting triangle love story. Main characters of this novel are Niharika, Anant and Shaurya. This story will surely touch your heart.
