sol2-book-coverShades Of Life

The Love For Colors: Shades Of Life 2 – Life, a supernova of emotions, a multi-coloured extravaganza and a celebration of colours that carve a way for us to be “expressive”. These colours often vary from situation to situation. They may be vibrant, bright and attractive, or even bland and gloomy. Nevertheless, they invoke the soul from within and portray the various dimensions of life. Come and explore the various shades of life – from the lighter tones of friendship and love to the murkier hues of revenge and murder – of human beings, of how their personalities and their situations mould them into their real selves – in this anthology of prose and verse, from authors across the world, The Love For Colors.

🙂 …to me 🙂

Shades Of Life, my dream project, is a collection of prose and verse by various authors. I can write a brief inside story of what and how it happened?

It all started in July 2015 when I hosted an online contest calling for submissions of stories anonymously. A few asked to reveal the publication name or the editor name, but we declined politely to reveal the names. It was just to measure the success rate of an anonymous editor. (Well, I started my writing journey as ‘Someone is Special’ and so I like anonymity). The book was a super hit. Hence we came up with Shades of Life 2 – The Love For Colors.

I have a big list of people to thank and I have done it already in my acknowledgement. Let me keep it short here. Special thanks to Neelam Saxena Chandra, Purba Chakraborty, Simran Kaur, Anmol Ankita, Monisha Vishwanath, Shaziya Shaik, Divya Malhotra, Heena Joshi, Ishwinder Singh, Rashmi Kurup, Haleemunnissa Fatima, Tanaya Nath, Budhaditya Bhattacharjee, Jagriti Parakh, Sangeeta Parakh, Agrima Soni, Susmit Sarkar, Swati Sarangi, Pratibha Sukhija, Pulkit Raturi, Ekta Poddar, Antara Guha, Angshuman Dutta, Divya P S Rawat, Ayush Agarwal, Sowmya M, Bhavya Nandakumar, Neelam Kandoi, Garima Parakh, Risabh Dakalia, Sreedeep Chennamangalam, Vinay Leo R, De Unique Printers and Blossom Book House.

Last but not the least let me thanks my wife Vidhya, my mother Meenakshi, my family and my friends for everything they have done so far.
