Life, Odds & Ends is an honest attempt in echoing the issues faced by the youth in a relationship, marriage, and relationships gravitating at the edge of the cliff. A book that the young gen should grab for it teaches something or two about caring, compassion and the need for both hus ...more

“Life has four important pulls - live, evolve, create and nurture.

The struggle lies in figuring out a way to balance these pulls - that's what is the common and of interest between all of us - and that's what is LIFE.”
