The Bestseller She Wrote is a story of a banker turned author, Aditya, who loves attention and limelight.

Vishwamitra, who was an ambitious king and later took to the path of becoming a sage to become the Brahmarishi. This book was an eye opener. It made me more knowledgeable about the celestial beings called the Apsara.
