Her debut work, Unheard Unseen Untold Tales is a fragment of many lives lived as ordinary but with tremendous courage and hope. Almost all the characters and stories are real life experiences, which she has assembled via communicating to real people; some are her own experiences in bits and pieces. The name and places has been changed for anonymity. The most unlamented lives and ordeal find a voice in her stories.
