I am Sanskriti Singh, an eighteen-year-old student and author of two books "Ram's Sister: True Scion of Raghu" and "The Flawed Good Man". My first book is from a self-publishing platform. I have been quite a regular writer in the regional daily "The Shillong Times" and "The Meghalaya Times". I have written many book reviews as well as articles in the same newspaper. Many of my items have been praised by prominent mythologists on the country, like Dr Devdutt Pattaniak and Mrs Kavita Kane. Jean Sasson, the famous author of books like Desert Royal, Princess Trilogy and many more followed me on social media and also viewed my review of her book. I have been studying the Hindu epics, Vedas, Puranas and other Hindu texts. I have also received various prizes for national-level writing competitions previously. I was also selected to speak in the program organized by the United Nations Organisation called "Save the Girl Child" last year. The speech incorporated as a part of the compilations they made to display in one of UNO's events.
