A Journey to Yonder by Nidhi Kaur is a soup for the soul. Once you got a taste of it, you’ll be stuff with a heartwarming and good story. I like the narration of it combined with beautiful snippets of poems that is truly a nice dynamics throughout the book. I read it in a good paced taking note some beautiful pieces of quotes which are too many just in this one book.
Having the setting in India, this story revolves around a woman that from her young years suffer a loss because of her brother’s burden on having the disability to hear like normal people, taking him away from them so he can have the education he deserved. Continues to her beloved grandmother and her only home she had. Her love story is much different as it blooms with such joy and taste of pain. I felt bad knowing she got a bad marriage and it is really too sad to see knowing she deserves a better one.
There is two partition in this book where the last part tackles how she got the strength to have a better outlook and new image on life. A quite emotional book you can have which uplifts your soul and heart. Love it. Way too good.
I guarantee you to have a perfect one when you think of reading this next with your list. A poetry book that pictures how life could be with so many challenges and struggles to reveal our own weaknesses and strengths in dealing it.
Magic Happens To Those Who Believe
Magic is the manifestation of the most unexpected, wonderfully surprising event. During the writing of my books I have witnessed magic happening everyday in my life. The most prominent one was the reimbursement of the money I spent for publishing my first book.
After publishing my first book “My Wedding with Truth,” I bought several copies to give those out personally to people whom I felt would need the book. On top of that, I had been donating all royalty from book sales.
My family had definitely questioned my acts and wondered that I had gone crazy with my book and not spending money carefully. I told them with a firm belief that this book is not even my work, and it has happened to me miraculously, so the Universe will help in its own mystical way. And I added with a confidence that this money will be different from my regular salary, or bonus, for I know my salary is already meant for education of my kids, home mortgage, etc. Four months later got check as gift from a totally random law firm and was exactly the amount I had spent on my book. Magic!
I believe this marvel is available to everyone on this planet. If we keep our mind focused on our goal, clear all our self-doubts, and pay no attention to thoughts of failure, a genie will appear from out of the clouds and say, “Your wish is my command,” and do the magic in our life.
