“The more I read, the more do I get inspired to write .”
It would be completely unfair on my part if I say this is my book. Efforts of many have gone into its making. I would like to thank my parents and my cute little sister for having faith in my abilities and constantly encouraging me. My mother is the most important person in my life. A Big Thank You to my Nani and my Dadi whose stories still mesmerize me and transport me to my childhood days.
Online release of this book would have been impossible without Pulak Bhatnagar, a communication design student at DJAD, Coimbatore, who designed this blog. He’s a computer expert, I tell you.
Thanks to another tech-savvy friend, Shweta Agrawal, an engineering student at SVITS, for her constant assistance and tips for this website.Mayuri Assudani ma’am, (my mentor, my guru) I owe you a lot. You had inculcated the habit of reading in me. And owing to the large library at your place, I rarely had to purchase any book. The task of editing has also been performed by her.
Special thanks to Juhi Khandelwal, my senior and friend at M.Mehta And Co. for her bright and funny ideas that made the book humorous. A hearty thank-you to all my friends and cousins because I am nothing without them.
An excerpt in Ch7 (description of Mitsu’s entry in the class) has been extracted from Pranav Pagaria’s article-The Girl I Met http://www.pranavsparlance.blogspot.com. My conscience doesn’t allow me to take the credit of somebody else’s work.
Equally worthy of credit are Paulo Coelho, Chetan Bhagat, Shiv Khera, David J. Schwartz, Emily Bronte, Enid Blyton etc whose books improved my vocabulary and honed my writing skills. Most importantly, they invigorated my passion for writing.
Credit also goes to MS Word, Oxford dictionary, my coaching institutes , my office, Internet etc etc etc..
