Dubai-based Indian expat Jani Viswanath launched her book Echoes of Light at the Sharjah International Book Fair on Wednesday.



The book — a collection of short stories and poems — focuses on the significance of kindness, hope, redemption, compassion and joy.

“I wrote Echoes of Light to remind readers of the need to slow down and live in the moment while cherishing the little things in life,” said Viswanath.

“Each story and poem reflect on things that we've long forgotten. I have also tried to highlight the healing power of positive energy and how it could be used to achieve happiness,” she added.

Viswanath said she hopes the short stories featured in the book will motivate young adults to embrace the power of hope and encourage them to appreciate the small things they tend to take for granted.

Echoes of Light shares the fundamental thread that binds society with love. By the end of the collection, readers will realise that happiness is not something to chase but is found within our own being,” she said.
