Tulika Tripathi’s personal victory in overcoming obstacles to become one of the youngest managing directors within her industry, serves as a muse for this book.

In her work, author Veena Nagpal valiantly sets out to unravel the intricacies of relationships between religious communities as they existed in the 1990s and in present times. The book revolves around an impressionable 20-year-old living in London, who, overwhelmed by frequent nightmares after the London Tube bombings, visits India to escape her fears. The Uncommon Memories of Zeenat Qureishi manages to highlight the vantage points of both Muslims and Hindus without surrendering to preconceived notions, and ends with a concluding act of absolute sacrifice.
Elaborately drawing from the infinite sanctuary of cosmic beings that appear in the myths of the Mahayana school of Buddhism, this book features as the first part of a Tibetan-Buddhist fantasy series. It begins with Lama Ozer and his novitiate Tashi, who leave the hidden monastery where they have lived all their lives to answer a call from the legendary kingdom of Shambala. Path of the Swan: The Maitreya Chronicles Part 1 follows the two of them on their journey, battling freezing cold, mist-laden mountains and evil forces. The spell-binding tale then covers the battle between celestials and dark forces – and the descent of the celestials to Earth.
