Also spotted were Prasoon Joshi and Raj Nayak with a host of other industry freinds and personalities, all of whom endorsed the book through their social media channels as well.
To leave you with one verse of the many inspiring and relatable poems in The Soulful Seeker, that I find should be an inspiration for each one of us this morning. Here's my pick from a favourite of the many poems: Being Bold
"The world out there leans on those who inspire. So my search is seriously on for someone I admire.
The list is long, of those, whose guidance I could seek. This is my chance to be bold not meek.
Within each one of us lies a talent so unique, it just needs to be exposed, given a tweak."
The launch event took place amidst celebrity, industry and personal friends of Punam and Wizcraft on Jan 12, with readings by Aditi Rao Hyadri, Manasi Scott, Maria Goretti and Kriti Sanon and others.
