Gun­jan Jain, a grad­u­ate in the eld of Eco­nomics and Fi­nance from the Univer­sity of Illi­nois at Ur­bana-Cham­paign, USA, is a book en­thu­si­ast. She also holds a Mas­ters De­gree i n Wealth Man­age­ment from Cass Busi­ness School, City Univer­sity, UK. Given that Gun­jun is an avid reader and a com­pul­sive writer, her tome, She Walks, She Leads, is the reec­tion of her pas­sion for writ­ing. On be­ing asked about t he book, Gun­jun says, “I have al­ways had a keen in­ter­est in peo­ple; to dis­cern, learn from and con­nect with uni­ver­sally, and thus my book, She Walks, She Leads!” Hav­ing pur­sued Eco­nomics, Fi­nance and Wealth Man­age­ment abroad, we won­der how Gun­jan ven­tured i nto writ­ing. She clar­i­fies, “I am a great be­liever of destiny and the ex­is­tence of a divine plan. And that was the start of my jour­ney as an au­thor. I had this image of the book in my mind and it was so clear that I had to sim­ply fol­low it along. And once I started on it, I was too ex­cited about it to let it go, ir­re­spec­tive of the chal­lenges that came up…there was no power on the earth that could have stopped me!” Writ­ing a novel is not ev­ery­body’s cup of tea; the skill comes with its own set of chal­lenges. We ask Gun­jun about the difcul­ties that she had to face dur­ing the process of pen­ning down her tome. She re­sponds, “I can’t claim to know…I have just about em­barked on one my­self! But, based on my ex­pe­ri­ence I can say that writ­ing is hard work and it re­quires a disciplined, thought-out ap­proach like any other task does.” She con­tin­ues af­ter some thought, “In ad­di­tion, the im­por­tance of be­lief in self, in your abil­i­ties and in your project is cru­cial, be­cause that is what will push you through the dark­est and most difcult of times. At the end of it though, the sat­is­fac­tion of see­ing your name on the prod­uct of all your ef­forts is worth it all.” She has a self-satised smile. Next, Gun­jan talks about her undy­ing love for non-ction books and the au­thor she ad­mires from the bot­tom of her heart. “It is al­most im­pos­si­ble to pick one favourite au­thor, but if I had to choose one it would be Ari­anna Hufng­ton, a Greek-Amer­i­can au­thor, a syn­di­cated colum­nist and the Edi­tor-in-Chief of The Hufng­ton Post. I en­joy her writ­ing,
