More Citizen Matters writers are now book authors!

A couple of years ago, we talked about some of our writers who had authored books. We are now happy to share that more Citizen Matters writers have jumped into the bandwagon of published authors.

The latest (and youngest we may add) is Malini Srikrishna. Malini writes a blog online on Citizen Matters. Malini, 14, has just published a book of her poems on Amazon. It is said to take the reader on a “roller coaster ride of a teen girl’s life. It talks of best friends and bitter enemies that sometimes you can’t tell apart. Of dreams, death and loss, families, friends, grandparents, memories and menageries – real and imagined.”
You can download the Kindle version for less than a dollar (roughly Rs 50) on Amazon. Malini plans to be a writer and we wish her all the best.

Her book on Aamir Khan, I’ll Do It My Way has been received well. It is available on Flipkart. She has earlier authored the novel Ginger Soda Lemon Pop, co-authored Mind Blogs 1.0.

Her books include Sati – A Study of Widow Burning in India and Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay – The Romantic Rebel.

I am including myself in this club because I still volunteer occasionally. Many of our team members are engaged in their own local issues (but we ensure that is independent of our work at Citizen Matters!).ย  Satisfaction First of course, is the immediate sense of empowerment โ€” that we get when we start doing something. Whether or not there are results to show. Sometimes there is a feeling of being better than the rest, because hey,…
