Reservation against Reservation

My debut novel, Seeking Redemption, is the first ever fiction title in India which speaks against caste based reservation system. The female protagonist of the novel suffers repeatedly in her professional career because of the reverse discrimination.

The book tries to give a message that excellence can never be bargained for. The novel deals with the health system of India and highlights that w... Read more of this blog post »

Diving Into the Wreck by Adrienne Rich
“These scars bear witness but whether to repair or to destruction I no longer know.”
Adrienne Rich

“The connections between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic, and the most potentially transforming force on the planet.”
Adrienne Rich
On Lies, Secrets, and Silence by Adrienne Rich
“Women have been driven mad, "gaslighted," for centuries by the refutation of our experience and our instincts in a culture which validates only male experience. The truth of our bodies and our minds has been mystified to us. We therefore have a primary obligation to each other: not to undermine each others' sense of reality for the sake of expediency; not to gaslight each other.

Women have often felt insane when cleaving to the truth of our experience. Our future depends on the sanity of each of us, and we have a profound stake, beyond the personal, in the project of describing our reality as candidly and fully as we can to each other.”
Adrienne Rich

“it seemed that the pain of their physical illness at times was less than the misery of their poverty ridden existence, the unending wait in the queues and the feeling of hopelessness and abandonment by your own system was enough to rob them of their will power to fight any disease.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“She was not granted the luxury of forgetting her lower middle-class existence where life hangs by an unseen thread to every hope and where every slash of disappointment shrinks the life further.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“She realized that her undiluted love had also given him the power to hurt her but she decided that spirit of the soul can always transcend the pain of the ego.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
Ayn Rand

“There are ultimately two choices in life: to fight it or to embrace it. If you fight it you will lose - if you embrace it you become one with it and you'll be lived.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.”
Gilda Radner

“When you are angry with someone,at least you acknowledge that person’s existence. But with indifference,you kill him by invalidating his very existence.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“It is your karma to fight evil. It doesn't matter if the people that evil is being committed against don't fight back. It doesn't matter if the entire world chooses to look the other way. Always remember this. You don't live with the consequences of other people's karma. You live with the consequences of your own”
Amish Tripathi, The Secret of the Nagas
