Many years ago, Paramahansa Yogananda said, “Be as simple as you can be. You will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.” The book, Simple Life, by K.

'There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you'. Celebrated poet Maya Angelou's words rang true as I started reading The Kali Project - an anthology of Indian women's voices from India and overseas.
