She hopes to continue creating engaging content for young readers to experience the beauty and diversity of India and inspire pride in their heritage. Shweta is a molecular biologist and a marketing professional who has now added writer to her list of professions, publishing The Diwali Gift as her first book. When not creating books or Apps, she loves trotting the globe with her husband and daughter. Shuchi Mehta – After spending her entire childhood enjoying the smells, sights and sounds of beautiful India, Shuchi is enthusiastic about sharing those wonderful experiences with the remainder of the world.
