New Release: Breathing Two Worlds by Ruchira Khanna

With a lot of pride I present my latest work as an editor. Working on this book was an amazing experience. I say this not because I have edited it but because I have read the author's previous works and have admired her sensitivity in dealing with the chaos of life. She brings along a fresh perspective to things that are beyond one's imagination and that is what makes reading her work enjoyable. Strongly recommended to people who enjoy fiction in it's truest form - heartwarming, life changing and one that leaves you thinking.


:About the book:  
Neena Arya, a Delhi-born goes abroad for further studies and decides to settle down there. Determined to be a 'somebody' from a 'nobody' she blends with the Americans via the accent and their mannerisms while having a live-in relationship with her European boyfriend, Adan Somoza.

When illness hits home, Neena rushes to meet her ailing dad. Tragedy strikes and amidst the mingling with relatives and friends, she finds herself suffocated with the two different cultures that she has been breathing since she moved to the United States. How will she strike a balance between both the cultures as she continues to support her widowed mother? Will she be able to do justice to her personal and professional life after the loss?

Amidst the adjusting she bonds with an ally and learns about ties beyond blood. On what grounds will she be able to form an invisible thread that she has longed for since childhood?

Breathing Two Worlds ventures into cultures and ethnicity allowing Neena to ponder upon her foundation and priorities.
