Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?

Never give up!

Trishna Damodar believes strongly in the notion, ‘Love can conquer all’. She enjoys indulging her taste buds with treats from various cuisines, travelling and listening to music. Apart from that she loves to spend all her time with her family. Her father, mother and life partner are the pillars of her being. Previously, she has published two poetry books, ‘Mind & Heart Speak Words –Volume I and II’ and two novels, ‘Bag Exchange’ and ‘Amma & I’. Trishna did not start her career off as a writer, she was an hotelier. But when she had to part ways with the hospitality industry, words offered her a new direction. She firmly believes that ‘Opportunities shall present themselves at the most unexpected moments. It is up to you to decide which path can make you a better version of yourself’. She writes now to spread joy, love, awareness, and at times, through her words, be a silent helping hand for those in need.
