Recently released Treasure a Tear is a collection of short stories based on the theme, how to fight with pain and suffering in life.
All of us do cry at times. Disgust, despair and even ecstasy use tears. Some feel light after crying as if rid of grief and some still run into depression after crying. Tears that cure the heart also clean the eyes and mind, leaving one with a sharpened vision. And yet, some hold back their tears making pearls of them by storing them in the shells of their hearts.
There is a mysterious might in holding tears in heart. These tears, as pearls, shine with beauty and happiness, spreading splendor around. Stories in the collection Treasure a Tear capture these heroic revolutionary moments in the lives of heroes among us.
