About the Book:

Laila spends an enviable childhood in Kapurthala, Punjab, where she lives with her parents, grandmother and her younger sister Dia, in a luxurious Haveli. Horse riding, royal style picnics, house parties along with games like Scrabble, Hide and Seek, and climbing trees are a way of life for Laila, which she enjoys with Dia and her friend Maya. Extremely sensitive as she is, her adolescent shoulders want to share her father’s burdening concern about the anarchic state of affairs in India just prior to the exit of the British.

Laila is eighteen when she leaves home in Kapurthala to go to Bombay to pursue a course in journalism in order to hone her writing skills. It is in Bombay that she turns her childhood dream into a real mission; to meet with the Queen of England! An amazing mix-bag of life-experiences await her in England.

While in London, in her pursuit to meet with the Queen, Laila comes across Jai who’s unlike anyone she’s ever met before. Jai introduces her to the lighter vein of life, and most importantly, to the concept of love. She falls hard in love, never wanting to rise out of it again. Could their bond survive the vicissitudes woven with intricacies around, especially of temperamental adjustments, or otherwise!

About the Author:

Kamini comes to fiction, holding a magical quill weaving encounters which are smooth in transition, not only of acceptance amongst the readers, but also conveying a faithful sense of events, recollected by her, partly through her upbringing and mainly through her passion to record historical facts, embroidered in a telling literary style which at times is racy and at others like lilting on calm waters. With her background of Masters in Psychology, combined with her education in a Convent, she understands the human predicaments which she juxtaposes with the value system, zeitgeist and the vicissitudes of the times she writes about. And to boot, her style of writing leaves the reader with a lurking quest in his mind, which makes the present work a page-turner.

Kamini’s love for travel has taken her across most parts of the world. Observing various cultures and delving into lifestyles of different people make the world an immensely intriguing place for her. Kamini had her first tryst with creativity, running her own fashion studio for a considerable number of years.

The author presently runs an NGO that seeks to work for empowerment of women, education of children and comfortable enrichment of lives of senior citizens.

Kamini lives in New Delhi. Her engagements run at a relaxed pace; her days are full with travel, reading, music, social causes and above all, writing, which comes naturally to her in any and every day of her life.
