A small chat with Seema:
I recently got a chance to be with Seema discussing her book. The challenges that she faced, and what keeps her going. Some interesting insights from the talk were about how we should find time for ourselves and give us that second chance. She believes that for the things that we desire, need or aspire, it is very important that they are chased with priority.
She also talked about how people today have a challenge in finding the right relationships. In a world where we are deeply rooted/connected, our real relationships go for a toss. Seema mentioned how writing this book has taught her to be disciplined and moderate her efforts into something meaningful.
Now Seema Punwani is looking forward to completing her second book very soon. She is a gem of a person and we wish her good luck.
