7 Quotes From Devdutt Pattanaik’s ‘Shyam’ That’ll Make You Want To Read It Right Now!

As kids, they were just stories. Stories of a charming boy called Krishna, who grew up to become a fascinating figure and went on to achieve impossible feats. But as you grow up and take another look at these childhood stories, you realise just how much there is to them that you haven’t ever considered.

These 12 quotes are proof that often love can feel hard and wary but all those struggles are worth it in the end. When love brings out your inner child. When you…Continue Reading

This Small Book Business Helps You Meet The Book Of Your Destiny (WHAAAT!)

A couple of weeks ago, I received an Instagram DM from a lady named Shariya Aman. She had been following my work for a while and she told me that she ran a small book business. The mention of books instantly caught my attention. Shariya told me about how she believed each one of us had a book destined for us.
