Jamshedpur, Sep 24: Book ‘I Get It Too’ authored by Nikita Chawla, daughter of city’s prominent businessman Jitendra Chawla, was launched at a city hotel on Friday, September 24.
Retired Vice Chancellor of Kolhan University Dr. Shukla Mohanty, former District and Sessions Judge LP Choubey and former Vice Chairman of Prime Minister 15 Point Program Implementation Committee, Government of Jharkhand Amarpreet Singh Kale released the book at the function.
Dedicated to her grandmother, author through the book has portrayed traumatic picture of partition making us to feel the pain of humanity.
Arguably one of the bloodiest chapters in the history of the world, the partition of India and Pakistan along Punjab wreaked havoc on millions of lives. Tens of thousands of people were displaced, killed, savagely raped, and forced to convert and flee, becoming refugees in an alien land that was ironically designated to be their ‘home’.
Chief Guest for the occasion Dr. Shukla Mohanty said that it is a proud moment personally for her as the author of the book Nikita Chawla is a former student of her college.
She said, “Unless you read, you cannot write and nowadays the young generation keeps themselves busy on social media, mobile phone and laptop only and they consider writing a useless thing. In such a situation, Nikita has set an example.”
Former District and Sessions Judge LP Choubey said, “Great people approach life differently to perform outstanding deeds. The youth should emulate such people to carve out an identity of their own. They should be like mirrors that boldly reflect social ills to crush venomous intents. Young author Nikita Chawla in her initial novel has taken this less traversed path and come out with a promising literary work.”
Amarpreet Singh Kale also took pride in the fact that his friend’s daughter has produced such a wonderful composition. He said that today’s children think ahead of time. There are many such touching observations in this book which gives us violent shudder.
Addressing the gathering, Nikita said, this book is a collection of 11 heart-woven letters, which illuminates “I get it too”. It tries to capture the beauty and simplicity of life which often goes unnoticed by us. “This book makes you realise the biggest treasurer in your life-experiences. It will make you feel a range of emotions and also remind you the sweet memories you’ve made along the way,” she said.
“Life of my grandparents inspired me write this book”, added Nikita.
On the occasion, everyone congratulated Nikita wholeheartedly. Nikita’s friends from the audience asked her several questions related to the book.
The book has been published by The World of Hidden Thoughts Publishing. E-Book is available on Amazon Kindle, Google Play Books, Kobo.com, Walmart.
Nikita has dedicated this book to her beloved grandmother, late Kanta Rani Chawla. Nikita’s grandfather came to Jamshedpur from Lahore after country’s partition in 1947. Nikita’s grandfather worked very hard to take his family to pinnacle.
