“I like to read books of different kinds, especially mythology. I have read several books related to Mahabharata. I began contemplating the story line with an aim to make the central character brave and strong. The idea of having a woman as the central character inspired me to pen down this book,” said Tanya Jaiswal, Author, Battles & Betrayals.
Kumari Lakshmi, Mother of the author while expressing her thoughts on the success of her daughter said, “I was under the impression that she was into academics only. It was a pleasant surprise that she was writing a book. I didn’t have words when I realized that she has quietly completed 12 chapters, and was almost half way through the book. I eagerly wanted to go through her creation. That time I felt she has grown from playing dolls to serious writing.”
During the launch of her first book, Jaiswal had expressed that she will continue to write in the future and had commenced working on her next Novel.
