CHICAGO: Sunita Lad Bhamray released her third book, “Ganga Jamuna”, in the presence of a large number of eminent guests coming in from different walks of life from Chicagoland at the White Eagle Clubhouse, Naperville, on September 21. The event was hosted by E3 Entrepreneurs, (Educate, Empower and Evolve) and moderated by Sonali Dev, the author of a newly published book, “A Change of Heart”.
“Ganga Jamuna” is an inspirational story of Abani, a resilient, enchanting young woman from Nepal, and her journey to find medical care for her infants. True to her name, which means “mother earth” in Sanskrit, she bears unimaginable burdens with remarkable tenacity.
“The story of “Ganga Jamuna” came to my notice through a newspaper report that I read about three years ago”, Sunita Lad Bhamray said. “Days passed but the key facts about her worth-emulating struggle kept spinning in my mind, and an idea to write a book was born in order to send out a strong message of hope and optimism to the readers”, she added.
The audience enjoyed the exchange between the two South Asian authors Sunita Lad Bhamray and Sonali Dev. Though they come from different genres, they were able to relate to the journey of becoming authors. The engaged audience was able to partake in a Q&A session. The event also featured local women-owned businesses and was sponsored by Archana Paranjpe of d’Aprile Properties and Roopali Chand of E3 Entrepreneurs.
“We hope to engage sponsors and others who share our vision to support the community. Change is inevitable and together we can make a difference”, said Roopali Chand, the founder of E3 Entrepreneurs. “It is not often that we get to socialize and learn at the same event, she added.
Sunita Lad Bhamray is an Indian author based in Singapore. The book, “Ganga Jamuna”, is being published by Kitaab International Pte Ltd. The publishing house, together with the author, has now launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the Nepalese family that inspired the author to pen this book in the first place. “I am very keen to support this woman and her child who reside in faraway Nepal,” Sunita told Kitaab.org.
“The Changemakers series will continue to bring eminent guests that are visionaries in their respective fields. We hope to continually challenge the status quo, evoke discussion, and change mindsets through education. Our goal is to inspire our community to support causes, educate themselves about world issues, and foster intelligent discussions.” said Saily Joshi, the founder of The Changemakers Series.
“What started as a gathering of friends in a basement has now turned out to be a vibrant platform for the people of Chicagoland and Naperville to share their inspiring experiences”, she added.
