Shades Of Life releasing on Holi!

Shades of Life is an anthology of short stories and poems, each of which depict a shade of life. Life is a supernova of emotions and the stories and the poems in the book highlight those myriad hues of life that makes it a roller-coaster ride.

It is the seventh anthology that I am a part of. The book has my short story Silent Offering which talks about the emptiness that gnaws at you when you abandon your most loved dream. It also talks about unconditional love and friendship. 

Here's a quote from my short story:


“Some people are not meant to be a part of our lives forever. Some people visit our lives for a brief period, not to stay in it, but to show us something that we have been unable to see it ourselves. In the form of a gift, a lesson or a piece of wisdom, they change the course of our life and help us to fulfill our destiny.”

Purba Chakraborty, Shades Of Life

Many of my blogger friends are also a part of this book. It has been compiled and edited by Saravana Kumar Murugan who is also a prolific blogger. The foreword has been written by Vinit.K.Bansal who is a bestselling author. 

The book will be releasing on Holi. It's currently available for pre-order in Amazon:

If you are in Goodreads, you can check out all the Quotes of the book
and also enter the Goodreads Giveaway to win a signed copy of the book. 

A lot of heart and soul has gone into the making of the book. It has soulful stories and poems by both new and professional writers.

I have a short message for all of you in this video. 


Make your Holi more colorful with Colors: Shades of Life!
