Sonal Kalra, who is also a published author, echoed similar sentiments and expressed her eagerness to encourage budding writers especially female authors.
Expressing her gratitude towards the esteemed panel present, Young and Talented Author Simar expressed, “This book touches upon lslamophobia, young Indian dreams, the women‘s place in urban society and relationships in these changing times,” Simar said.
“As an Indian studying in America, perhaps I have been seeing every chapter of this book unfold both closely and from a neutral & distant perspective,” added Simar.
