ANAAYA AND I BY MANISHA GARG #A2ZChallenge #Book8



A mother's journey is surreal. Each mother has a different journey because each baby is different. Same mother could have different journeys with different kids. Anaaya and I is the journey of the author with her daughter Anaaya. It could be a conicidence or destiny that I am writing the review during the #A2ZChallenge and the author started her book with her A2ZChallenge experience.

 It will be a beautiful memory for everyone to cherish.

The author has put forth the journey from first moment till her child reached her milestones.  Each point in her life is palpably presented for ther readers. For the to-be mothers there are a lot of helpful points which could be helpful for their pregnancy. It is heartwarming to see how the author and her husband jointly welcome their daughter and how she became the center of the universe.

There are a lot of emotional and exciting moments in the book, which every mother would be able to relate to. The book made me realise how silly I was to judge a mother who was upset about her daughter having physiological jaudice, which is a common and  harmless ccondition. But the author makes us realise that even that would be stressful for the new mothers. The author's account of the unsolicited, unscientific advices seemed so relatable because it would be the case of every Indian mothers.

The book could have been longer. By and large the book is a perfect pointer to the to-be moms and the walk down the memory lane for the experienced mothers but the emotional connect between Anaaya and her mother could have been explored the fullest extent possible.

How the author multitasks to balance her life is indeed an inspirational tale for every women.
