“Love is just another sandcastle. And the farther it is from the raging sea, the safer it is… But sandcastles can be made only with wet sand – sand touched by the salty sea. And so it has to be near always… And there are always salty tears in Love, as there are always the sprays from the waves over sandcastles…” says Noah, the hero in Amidst Sandcastles. When situations and emotions play the villain, hearts are at stake and love and trust are only as strong as you are. Dr. Selena Rosche is left to face this again after ten years when the beautiful equilibrium of her life as a mother to her twelve- year-old twin daughters, Rene and Pris, is threatened when the past she had buried begins unearthing itself in the form of two men. Dr. Noah Sehnor is back after a decade of running away from the reality that he had screwed up, to redeem. After ten years of prison and wandering in search of peace, Dr. Vincent Gomer has found the answer to his quest. But the answer is just the beginning of a bigger question. Conflicts arise, naturally, and following a nearly fatal twist, Selena, Noah and Vincent, along with their friends Zinnia and Jean are forced to reveal what had happened ten years back. Set in Goa, India, this is a Family and Relationship fiction with intrigue that turns pages packed with emotion, drama, romantic humour and lighter moments.
THE PRELUDE : WHY I WRITE POETRY “To find myself I wrote poetry… When I found myself, I still wrote poetry… Now to find my old self, I keep writing poetry…” Poetry used to be The Torrent from My Soul. But, Now: Poetry is a necessity for my sanity... A reason for my satiety... My very entity... So let's dream, observe, recognize, realize and find our truths in 'The Room of Mirrors' through my 'Reflections in Words'... The Room of Mirrors is a collection of reflective poems that has guided me to self-realization and will give the same experience to the reader. There's love, romance, society and loss. There's nature and confession. There's philosophy and food for thought. There's a mirror in this book to let you see yourself in each word.
