“Friends are angels sent down to earth to make good days and help us find our way.”

Friends I feel very happy to say today that finally my Hindi poetry book “Khawabon Ki Zameen” (Land of dreams), is ready and you can order this book by sending mail to me: or to my Manager (my dear friend): /

Check out @eBay:

This book will be costing only Rs. 85/- and shipping charges for people in India and for people outside of India will cost for $ 9.00 US.

As I have said this is my dream and publishing this book not only gives me an opportunity to give some thing back to the community but also fulfills my dream to help children.

“Power is no blessing in itself, except when it is used to protect the innocent.” ~ Jonathan Swift

It was my childhood dream to sponsor a kid and each time I looked for an opportunity, either the kid stopped going to school or the money was used for some other purpose.

I think for any country’s future the children have the biggest responsibility as they are the future and this book gives me that opportunity to fulfill my wish by helping kids.

Yes 20% of the amount that I get from this book will be given to an Orphanage “International Child Welfare Service” in Chennai, India. They have many programs and one of them is called as “Dawn and Dusk Home, A Home for the HIV+ children”, - those kids who were born with it not because of their fault.

You can read about this at this website:

As always your support and prayers I need the most to fulfill my dream.
Please also tell your friends and family who can read Hindi to support and also people who would love to read Hindi- can also support this book :) and the kids.

“One hundred years from now
It will not matter
What kind of car I drive,
What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in my bank
Nor what my clothes looked like.

One hundred years from now
It will not matter
What kind of school I attended,
What kind of typewriter I used,
How large or small my church,
But the world may be
…a little better because…
I was important in the
Life of a child.” ~ ICWS

“Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future” ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
