About the Book
As the title suggests, the stories are about reflecting and introspecting. The short story compilation is based on the quest of finding oneself. Often times, we are lost is the cobwebs of money, power, fame and ego. The stories signify the importance of being true to oneself because we can only be at peace, when we do that. Love takes center stage in the lives of many people; selflove is often underrated. The quest to discover ourselves is universal and hopefully the readers would be able to connect to the stories.
