Reading the book, " Arising from the dust" is patting on your own back. It evokes the wit and valour of a defeated soul. Congregation of 32 stories are like destined journey towards success, assimilating the courage, grit and a ray of hope to become an invincible warrior.
I can't stop myself to mention my favourites of all. Nevertheless, each story is a valuable pearl of a precious Carcanet.
Sisters of Daulatdia, The Story of an Underdog The First Step The Golden Bird All these stories left me young influential .
As the read progressed I was somewhere searching for twist or a different approach to the title Arising from the dust to break the monotony of female oriented stories and back of my mind searching for Sonal Singh's story, for I love her write-ups. And to my surprise I found her story "Kindness Begets Kindness " heartwarming and so relatable.
Last but not the least, Meera Barth, the Compiler of this marvellous book, is an erudite personality with a mighty soul. Congratulations Meera and team for conceptualising such a wonderful anthology.
