Welcome to my site.  I hope you will visit often to learn about my work as it develops.   I have been writing for several years but my endeavors have just recently taken an interesting turn.  The ship has set sail.....don't know the destination....but it's fun to be on board!
'Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-ji' is my first picture book.   It is  for children and grandchildren everywhere. It was published by Lee and Low Publishers in March, 2001 and is currently available on Amazon.  I am pleased to share that Hot, Hot Roti for Dada-ji won the 2012 APALA Honor Ward in the Picture Book category.  I hope you will have fun reading it with the special people in your lives.  The Garden of my Imaan has also won awards.  Happy Reading!
