“For everything that reminds me of who I am, there's always something reminding me of who I'm not.”
Veera Hiranandani, The Whole Story of Half a Girl

“When you divide people, they take sides.”
Veera Hiranandani, The Night Diary

“It feels scary to talk, because once the words are out, you can’t put them back in. But if you write words and they don’t come out the way you want them to, you can erase them and start over.”
