“To Err Is Human” that’s the title of the first novel penned by the debut author Swarupa Chavan. She has been working with a Leading Agro Chemical mfg Co. for more than 10 years handling the Procurement function of Packaging Material.
She is a Science graduate and has done Packaging Technology and an MBA in Materials. Although from a technical background she has profound interest in art especially music and reading.
Reading has been her passion since childhood. After reading any beautiful book she was always fascinated and left wondering why she was not the writer of this book? The seed of writing a novel was planted somewhere along this time.
She finally decided to give wings to her dream and started writing her first novel. It all started out as a hobby to explore her writing skills which led to the completion of an actual story. Although it sounds easy now, but the journey was not that smooth for her. Once started she found it difficult to give enough time to dedicate to her book and writing being a creative work when she did find the time over weekends or holidays she experienced mind blocks on several occasions, and the story just didn’t move ahead with the required speed. It finally took her more than 3 years to complete it.
But it was an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for her to create the wonderful character of Malini, a simple girl with big dreams who comes to mumbai to fulfill them. Malini is compassionate, hilarious, sensitive, emotional… and not to forget she is a magnet for errors, attracting disasters all along. She takes the reader through all sorts of drama as she unfolds one hilarious incident after another. Yet we find ourselves relating to it at some point or the other. Malini takes readers on a whirlwind of adventure—including being kidnapped by bad guys, clumsy mishaps, surviving extravagant parties—and her witty charm will keep the pages turning. This hip story is about a young woman finding her true self. Will she be pleased with what she finds at the end?
