A happy kind of life.

Megha, a young super-achiever with a perfect life has all that is needed to be happy. After all why wouldn’t she? A swimming champion, school topper, popular, good-looking girl with amazing friends and loving parents. What more could a girl ask for? A lot, actually.

 

About the Author - Monisha K Gumber

Inspired by Archie comics, Wimpy Kids and Chetan Bhagat and forced by her husband, Monisha had no choice but to write this book-

Sick of being healthy. Despite being an ardent fan of Ayn Rand when she was a teenager (talk about regression), she decided to produce something that would not only be fun but also teaches kids about life. When she was barely six she won her first National level drawing competition and then many more followed till she gave up participating. Just as an act of rebellion. Against nothing in particular. When she was in High school, she served as an Editor of her school magazine. And that’s about all the credentials she has when it comes to writing. No articles in newspapers and no publications of her own. Yes- excellent in making proposals and PowerPoint presentations. That is the reason her husband forced her to come up with this !
