Literary Works- Rajiv Soni

A story based on true incidents about the journey of an empowered 21st century millennial from the glamworld of stilettos and beauty pageants to training in deep muddy trenches.....sacrificing everything in her endeavours to partake in making India a 'safer' country. Her strong and inspiring character makes her an icon of the, hitherto, rudderless Indian youth. The story has pizazz and can make a statement.

Set in India- Goa, Delhi, Manesar, Mumbai... it has elements of courage, patriotism, and a bit of romance... making it a sensitive, thought-provoking story for an entertaining film.

Set against the back drop of the dog-eat-dog fashion design industry, the story explores fragility of relationships between the fashion Czar in India, who uses every trick at his disposal-inventing new ones as necessary to stay Numero Uno, his wayward son who’s found a place to put his skills of deception, influence and illusion to use and beautiful Ananya, struggling with a dark past and current betrayal in love, who nevertheless creates timeless designs and is cheated on time and again, surviving on hope and faith.
Life being the sum total of moments, mistakes and things, the story is about change in these in all three as a result of having learnt a lot, suffered enough and got tired of ‘the same thing’ with underlying message 'Life never gets easier, you just have to get stronger!'

The story includes true, real life instances of Hindu-Muslim relationships, Indo–American relationships, honesty of black Americans, mysterious mischief of Lord Krsna himself, and other examples of America’s amity, it’s tolerance of multiplicity of cultures and ethnicities and inherent system of rewarding the honest and hardworking...
