I thoroughly enjoyed reading your second novel Tides Don’t Cross. The sensitivity with which you write and the depth of characters you portray belie the fact that you are just 21 years old. A voracious reader that I am, I can’t recall any author who writes as well at your young age.

A Vapid Marriage....
A Whiz-Bang Romance....
An Unfulfilled Dream....
A Voracious Ambition....


Sparks fly immediately when Rukmani, fierce and assertive in the best and worst ways, meets gentle Ayaan in the magical city of Paris. Meanwhile, back in India, her reticent sister, Mrinalini struggles with to stay afloat in the void of a loveless marriage and an early pregnancy.


“Tides Don’t Cross” follows these remarkable characters as their lives cross in surprising ways. Mrinalini, Ayaan and Rukmani wade through choppy waters, unreserved and unaware of their common connection. Deeply touching, it tells an unforgettable story of thwarted desires, of love and its loss, of falling and learning to rise up.
