#GuestPost :: Mother By Sankalp Kohli

Born and brought up in Kanpur, Sankalp is a MBA Graduate from NMIMS, Mumbai. An entrepreneurial soul with an imprint of a perfectionist, he is a workaholic who believes in turning every single moment of life into something constructive and fruitful. 
He is a person who holds his parents above all, especially his mother. All his dreams and aspirations are driven by his wish to make his parents feel proud.
His first attempt with pen, in form of ‘Because…Every Raindrop is a HOPE’, released this year, has been gaining immense success and has already hit ‘the National Bestseller’ tag. ‘When I Found You’ is his second book.

Ever wondered, about those 9 months, inside her warm motherly womb; when she went through that agonising pain, while you took a gentle humanly form.
Ever wondered, about those marks left all over her body; Caused when she got cut, to bring in a young ‘Noddy’.
Ever wondered, amidst all the delivery pain, how desperately she wanted to hold you; and once in her arms, you automatically stopped crying and people around had no clue.
Ever wondered, how she smiled at you and was left in awe; when you did your first mischief and left marks on her face with you claw.
Ever wondered, how her face used to turn blue; each time, you suffered with flu.
Ever wondered, about the loving affection, when she ran behind you with a glassful of milk; and you admired her beauty, coming out so well, in that saree of silk.
Ever wondered, how happy and excited she was; When for the first time you went to school, the best day of her life t’was.
Ever wondered, the difficulty she faced in taking time out for you from her daily schedule; to play with you, to talk to you and sometimes teach you the theory behind those stupid molecules.
Ever wondered, how with time, she became your best friend; giving you some tips and hearing stories about you and your girlfriends.
But then, one day, for higher studies you had to go away from your home; away from her, to a strange place, where she could reach you only via mobile phone.
Inside a washroom, she silently cried her heart out; but never did she tell, parting away from you, is what she cried about.
She knew that her darkest fear, separation from you, has finally come true; but with a heavy heart and a humble smile, she went to the airport to drop you.
While you adapted to the ways of the cruel world; She prayed for your happiness and felt content seeing her child bud.
Gradually, loaded with work, you started ignoring her calls; knowingfully well that you won’t call back she waited, inside those four dying walls.
And while you crushed her memories deep below those piling work files; she always thanked God, believing that a part of her has come worthwhile. 
Though she may never bring to your notice, how much she misses you and your presence; it is for you to answer, what would be life like in her absence.
Just think, what if you lose her one fine day; what if, just like you, leaving you alone, she walks away.
I am sure, a dreadful fear will set in; Now imagine, this is what, everyday she is living in.
Work will always remain undone, Responsibilities will always be there and Opportunities will always knock your door, because no matter what, life will always be Life.
Do take out time for Her, talk to Her, visit Her whenever possible and give her a reason to smile; For the reason for your existence is her, Your Mother.

Caught in the turmoil of an Underrated Love and an Overrated Infatuation, Raj, a young boy with larger than life dreams, from a small town of Kanpur, is at the cross road of life, where every road ahead leads to nothing but a Dead-end.
Through the grueling course of circumstances, he is subjected to the bitter tests of life, where he fails to justify his one decision of parting ways with Mahek.
But, when Mahek flashes out of his life, leaving him all alone, the guilt of not been forgiven by her, ruins his soul; and that frustration leads him into seclusion, devoid of even his best buddies Rohan and Rahul.
Failed love, broken friendship, a hurt ego and lost soul Raj is doomed to darkness. With no ray of hope ahead, just when Raj is about to give up on life, he come across a note, written to him by his favorite professor, "Never give up Raj Because Every Raindrop is a Hope" which brings Raj face to face with his own self.
Why Love that makes Life beautiful, turns into Satan? Why friendship one fine day loses all its meaning? Why on the crowded roads of Mumbai city, Raj finds himself walking all alone? Will Raj challenge Life and fight back with the sword of Hope or will he take the easy way out by succumbing to the arduous tests of time.

My Review of this Book : Because Every Raindrop... Is a Hope

They first met when they were just twelve, and then they kept meeting again and again, each time wanting to confess their feelings for each other – but it never came to such a pass for Tiya and Aarav.
Falling apart and bowing down to the miseries of a broken family and a daunting past, at 24, they decided to move on. But life pulled out one trick after another to bring them back to each other and give one last chance to do what they couldn't do in the past twelve years. A choice had to be made and there was no going back.
Could they learn from the echoing footsteps of their parents and speak their heart out or the fear of saying the unsaid killed it once again for them?
Did their time to fall in love come, or like always, they met, greeted and departed to part forever?
