Inspired by Archie comics, Wimpy Kids and Chetan Bhagat, and forced by her husband, Monisha had no choice but to write this book– Sick of Being Healthy. Despite being an ardent fan of Ayn Rand when she was a teenager (talk about regression), she decided to produce something that would not only be fun but also teaches kids about life. Talking about kids, when she was barely six she won her first National-level drawing competition and then many more followed till she gave up participating. Just as an act of rebellion. Against nothing in particular. When she was in high school, she served as Editor of her school magazine. And that’s about all the credentials she has when it comes to writing. No articles in newspapers and no publications of her own. Yes – excellent at making proposals and PowerPoint presentations. That is the reason her husband forced her to come up with this! However, like all good Indian students, Monisha went on to get an MBA and has fifteen years of corporate experience. She now works for a leading management consulting company. She is married with two kids and lives in Bahrain. She is passionate about alternative healing and genuinely wishes true health and wisdom for all.
