Why do people write a book?
Do they want to talk about the characters in their head? Do they get the urge to elaborate on the idea that has been gestating in their mind? Or is it because they want a story to be told?
Well, my reasons for writing are not any of the above.
Who is qualified to write a book?
Anyone with a story idea, who has written a lot before, or probably holding a literature degree… Or something similar. A book is usually written by someone who has dabbled in writing previously.
So what am I doing here?
I am Riddhi, a doctor.
Why is a doctor writing a book? What is she going to say? What is her purpose?
I am writing a book as a gift to my soul sister. This is just a few chapters from the long life of Adhira, my best friend since God knows when, and one of the women I admire and love more than myself. My purpose, you ask? I want to tell this story – her life story, and she would never do it, considering it narcissistic. But it is too good to not be told. So for some time, a doctor has become a writer.

She is blessed with almost everything life could offer – good looks, pleasing personality, mesmerizing voice, successful business, caring friends, loving parents and husband. But there is still something lacking and she feels lonely, not at peace with herself. The epitome of successful self made women, tragedy befalls her when a shocking truth about her life completely turns her life upside down. All of a sudden, there is not enough time to do whatever she wanted. She had not had many expectations from life, but now hoped for some more time – at least until the marriage of her brother with her best friend has happened.

Sometimes we handle everyone but can’t cope up with ourselves, and get embroiled in things we wish to avoid.
Everyone’s life has a turning point. For some, it changes the very core of who they are. Adhira had always been too good for a world that looked at her in a mixture of awe and exasperation. In the world of insecurities and loneliness, she strived to spread love. In the world focused on the self, she taught what it was to put others’ needs before one’s wants.
One devastating piece of news shattered her perfect world, breaking down everything she had carefully built. Suddenly, there was so much to do and not enough time. The world around her crumbled, filled with betrayal and desertion. Will she ever be able to trust anyone again? Who could she trust? Why was she refusing to acknowledge the love that was presenting itself to her? Fierce warring between nursing the wounds of betrayal and opening herself to love again splits Adhira apart. Will she ever be able to love again?
Come, travel with Adhira for a few turbulent chapters of her life, as she wades through love: lost and found.
I recently heard about this challenge from my friend and I instantly got excited about participating in it. Though I am not an active blogger, and also a first timer in participating in such contests. I am sure I will try to write as per the guidelines. Many participating bloggers choose different themes to write upon. But I’m clueless! So, I chose words which, directly or indirectly, belong to me in my day-to-day life. Words, which actually mattered the most to me.
So, as far as the first letter goes. A for me stands for Adhira. A fictional character I created 3 years ago.
