In The Ring With Life: Taking The Punches and Winning The Game!
- About the Author
Shashi believes that each of us is in the ring with life, taking the punches and fighting our own little battles. What matters is that every time we get knocked down, we bounce back stronger. In this book, She candidly presents her experiences climbing the corporate ladder as a gender and racial minority, her sudden retrenchment during the COVID-19 pandemic, along with more personal struggles—her miscarriage and difficult pregnancy. She lays bare her wounds, hoping this gesture of hers will give strength to someone somewhere, who has been knocked down hard by life, to stand up again and face life head-on! Shashi also shares her secret to good health, happiness, and peace by highlighting the importance of setting goals, continuous learning, parenting & adoption, and the need to ‘live for a cause’. She believes that crafting a life that we desire is solely in our hands.
