Her Journey Within

AVAILABLE IN PRINT AND EBOOK FORMATS
Tired of fulfilling endless demands of people around her and frustrated by society's coercive attempts to mould her according to its expectations, young Asmi abandons her mundane life and embarks on a remarkable journey to seek freedom and happiness! Driven into loneliness and despair, she struggles to find her place in a world she has begun to hate. Her life changes when an unusual, contemporary monk introduces her to the timeless wisdom of the Upanishads. As she delves into the practice of Vedanta and meditation, she begins to unravel the mysteries of the meaning of 'I', the nature of reality, and the causes of human bondage.

Will Asmi make her peace with society?
Will she find the elixir for true freedom and lasting happiness?

About

I am a computer scientist interested in an equal superposition of machine learning and quantum computing. Besides professional interests, my reading list includes philosophy, history, and literary fiction. I write and contribute articles to various news websites and Medium publications. My first novel was ranked #1 on the Amazon.in bestseller list for spiritual fiction. I am open to research collaborations or writing opportunities in the fields of artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and other emerging technologies.
