So a couple of months ago, in February, my publisher Notion Press hosted a Valentine's Day competition. They invited writers from across India and the world to send their short stories and poems, with the promise that 100 poems and 100 stories would be selected to be published in an anthology (respectively) titled, '#Versesoflove". Just a few weeks before that, a friend of mine had passed away in a tragic road accident. Still reeling from his sudden demise, I penned a poem titled 'One Last Photograph' to help purge the feeling of loss. When the contest was announced, though, something inside made me share that poem. I'm not one to enter contests - let alone writing contests (self esteem issues? Maybe), but I did it anyway just so I could get more people to read it. As luck would have, of the thousands upon thousands of entries that came in, 'One Last Photograph' was selected to be one of the 100 poems in the book. I was stunned, but at the same time humbled that the forces that be found the love in that poem, and deemed it worthy to be a part of that esteemed collection. 

If you'd like to pick up a copy of the book '#Versesoflove', you can use the links below. And if you're reading this, thank you for your support. It means a lot. Copies are available on Notion Press and Amazon.
