Preeti Ma'am : Writing began at the age of 9 as a hobby….a friendship broke and  a poem I scribbled…I would barely pass in almost all subjects but would excel in English……it was always a hobby…but I made my passion of writing into a profession once I decided to manage my own life…my way . My favourite author is spiritual writer Eckhart Tolle whose penned Power of Now—a book I have read 10 times and try to imbibe in daily life…I read fiction only in college…now I read only self help books.
