Vindya’s passion for creative writing has led her to publish two books. Her debut book “Dews on the Cheek”, published in 2016 is a collection of poems. It is a reflection of emotions and the various turmoil that the mind goes through when we love someone truly. The depiction shows that love is above all, and feelings are common for everyone. These poems are an attempt to enable one to understand how a loving heart feels. This book says more about the emotions when the heart and mind don’t want to sync. It also tries to release the feelings of love & anger of a true lover.
Her second book, “Many Hearts One Beat,” published in 2019 is a beautiful collection of heart-touching stories to reach the innermost chords of your heart. This book comprises the arena of ‘love’ through its ups and downs and how it’s never always the ‘happily ever after’ in real life.
