One of the most popular authors of India, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana on Friday celebrated ‘World Book Day’, citing an excerpt from her last book ’12 Commandments of Being a woman’ with a hopeful message in these desperate times.
Sharing a picture of herself surrounded by books on Instagram, Tahira wrote, “On #worldbookday quoting a few lines from my book #the12commandmentsofbeingawoman ‘My practice tells me that the only reason we are faced with an obstacle is to become a better version of ourselves. It is an opportunity to change something in our life and a springboard to achieve greater heights’. These are overwhelming times but a combined hopeful spirit will help us sail through. Let’s go all out to display humanity by helping whomever we can and if for some reason we can’t , let’s say a small prayer”.
