*What is the purpose of your writing?

*Which of your work has been published so far? Would you like to share a synopsis of your work?
-My first novel 1 Love, 2 Religions: A Romantic Dilemma has been published in September 2013. It is a self narrative compilation of a girl named Sakshi as she passes through the very designated transits of her life. Life would have been a lot simpler if the 'event' called Love favored coreligionists. But unfortunately it's not so. Sakshi's life revolved around her besties namely Revathi, Ryan and Jake.
Ryan and Revathi fall in love even before they realize that the are not from same religions to have a stable future in their relationship. Meanwhile Jake finds himself tangled in a relationship that he's not supposed to be in. Sakshi's life is molded and mended by all these events happening around her as she finally finds her man which adds yet another love story into this compilation of a young urban girl trying to come to terms with her life. Ryan and Revathi's dilemma over love and religion, Sakshi's sometimes-smooth-sometimes-bumpy life and Jake's unfortunate befuddlement all sum up to an exciting and romantic assemblage.
