About the book
Thirteen soul-stirring stories gathered from the experiences of a senior journalist. A surrogate mother narrating her emotional ordeal; a house-husband telling his side of the story; an innocent girl taking her first brush with the not-so-innocent world; a woman judging her friend for her Facebook posts…and many more that chronicle the journey of discovering life. Amrita Mukherjee, a journalist, realized over the years that every story had an inside story; interviewees actually opened up when the Dictaphone was switched off. Apart from meeting people for interviews, she collected these stories at the office cafeteria, at drawing room conversations, during interactions with strangers while travelling on the metro-rail or talking to fellow moms while waiting for her son at the school gates.
