#11th I never thought I'd ever be referred to as an author...

I accepted invitations for virtual talks. One of those invitations was from my well-wishers AVIS Viswanathan and Vaani. They arranged a program along with the Madras Management Association. During my talk there, someone in the audience asked if I was writing my autobiography. When I said that I wasn't owing to my busy schedule, he suggested that I start writing as he believed that it could inspire many. Another person in the audience told me that she would be willing to help me by becoming a co-writer to write my story.

This had been something I had thought of but had been putting off, waiting for more time. And now, I had so much more time as I no longer had to travel to attend events in-person.

But I was in a dilemma - whether to write along with a co-writer, request another writer to write my story or to take up the task of writing my story myself. I had no idea on how long I would have the WFH option or stay home all the time and whether I would have time to continue this task once everything went back to normal.

I was also not sure about my ability to write the book. I spoke to my writer friend Saundarya to seek her advice. She told me that she had been reading my social media posts and was confident that I could write my story on my own.

My parents, siblings and JP Uncle encouraged me to start writing the book.

It was time for me to take a decision on this matter….
