This book is a tribute to mostly unsung heroines of our lives; our mothers. The book is a precious and playful banter between a 70-year-old traditional Punjabi mother and her 45-year-old part-Punjabi, part-cosmopolitan, part-traditional, part-rebel daughter, trying to get along with each other while sliding down the chute of daily life.
Based in a Punjabi household, the book has a universal appeal as the author has translated every Punjabi dialogue or expression written in ‘Gurmukhi’ script, into English. The book has a very large-hearted witty approach to life’s molehills and mountains alike.
An entrepreneur, an adventure enthusiast and a philanthrope, Ms. Supreet Dhiman is raising environmental concerns through adventure activities, transforming lives of the underprivileged through education, spearheading the voluntary blood donation drive to help save lives, and most recently, striving for a world free of incest abuse - India’s dirty little secret.
A TEDx and Josh Talks speaker, Supreet is in demand to convey innovative ideas and key messages through storytelling, which she delivers in multiple languages.
If there is one thing that Supreet has learned and imbibes in life, it is the value of relationships both at work and in personal life, which is reflected in this book documenting her relationship with her mother.
The book traverses through the hostel life of an engineering student in seventies unfolding the uncertain times of extremist violence, peaceful days later and the initiation into the working life.

The book brings out the times in a relatable manner with typical characters, places and happenings. The lucid and gripping narration keeps the reader glued till end.
Which is the eye and ear of my learning, and the mirror of my life.
As a kid I was always intrigued by the mysteries that surround people, places and incidents. I have been a researcher in terms of looking out for the truth. Though curiosity can lead to problems but I feel that it gives you a sense of satisfaction and mental peace once you get the closure.
In the hope and positive attitude that the heartfelt emotions being presented by me in this book will reach the people who want to build a good and strong character. Earning good money and achieving degrees and popularity are of No worth if a person’s values are at stake. I have learned in all these years of hardship that Morals, Upbringing and Values should never be compromised if one has to reach the top. Because the Sooner you will reach the top, the faster you can fall on the ground. So let us all be careful and maintain our dignity.
I have been hopeful however, I have had many setbacks. But this is Life…full of ups and downs. In a few people’s period of existence there is more pain than blessings. Therefore, one must strive to do good deeds to earn more blessings.
This book has got immense experiences which tell the depth of my true feelings and I wish this can help everyone who reads this book.
It is a compilation of different events that have happened in my life and for making me the person I am today.
When life hurls stones at you,
Learn to use the shield of wisdom
When life offers you Flowers,
Learn to catch and harbor them
Accept Life the Way It is,
For it is the Hallmark of a Human.
Let’s get started with the roller coaster ride and the amazing events that define the life of today’s human being. Stay with me in this journey and delve deeper into the real meaning of liveliness, faith and confidence.
The book describes the experiences of a village boy born in U.P. and his efforts to get himself educated and take interest in science to become a scientist in a premier organization ( ISRO) and to head one of the most important atmospheric research laboratories of ISRO in the country at its establishment phase. This laboratory has now turned from a tiny plant to a massive Banyan tree providing an opportunity to a number of young scientists to carry out advanced research in various areas of atmospheric science like the lower, middle, and upper atmosphere.
It is believed that this book would generate interest and attract a number of young people to do research in various areas of atmospheric science. These areas are so vast that they still remain a challenging theme for advanced research.
