Cricketchya Aishwarya By Neeta Nitin Chaple

Life seemed dark and empty after the death of my daughter AIshwarya, in an accident, a day before her 17th birthday. Everything seemed worthless and I felt like nothing mattered anymore. After days of struggling, I decided to turn to writing. I decided to pen my thoughts about the game which I had held so dear to my life—cricket and my association with it. I knew that it was something which could bring new light to my life, but the question was “how?” I started writing in the month of the February, in 2015, and today it has come to place after more than a year of painstaking efforts.

“The Diary of a Novice Author” is a potpourri of poetic stories and poems that say stories… These stories get you to imagine them with open eyes while reading.
