JAMMU, June 26: The young and budding author of Jammu and Kashmir Ada Aggarwal launched her book ‘Scottish Diaries’ in a function held, here today.
The function was presided over by noted educationist Esther William and attended by her proud parents Tina Aggarwal and Pankaj Aggarwal, one of the promoters of Aggarwal Group of Jammu & Kashmir, Aggarwal family members, friends and distinguished guests from the City of Temples.
Scottish Diaries brings the audience a captivating tale to rumble the mysteries in Murray house bestowed by Ada Aggarwal. COVID-19 erupted out of nowhere and deprived us of our daily lives, improvised technology and dragooned people to swerve to Zoom meetings. Many departed souls were robbed off their last rites and goodbyes and the one who outlived it, were also cheerless.
Ada Aggarwal’s debut novel, Scottish Diaries, is a tribute to the old, incapacitated yet independent genarians, technologically challenged individuals and the socially distanced sapiens even before the pandemic began, who made it through the atrocities of unsolicited virus. The story is written in a breathtaking way which makes us become a part of the characters and feel the same emotions.
Speaking on the occasion, Esther William said, “Scottish Diaries is a winsome novel and I would recommend it to anyone who believes in the spirit to fight back. It is a narrative with powerful characters that portray real people, with real abilities and vulnerabilities, facing real – world problems, and who would fight, no matter the circumstances and the nascent author doesn’t give you a sphere for beration.”
Ada Aggarwal is a teenager who felt extremely lonely during the pandemic and took up writing as a hobby. This hobby turned out to be one of her strengths, she started expressing herself by writing and when the idea of a book was suggested to her, she started working on it immediately.
The book has been published by Partridge and is available on Amazon, Partridge, Barnes & noble, Flipkart, Google play, Betterworldbooks and Booktopia.
