Praise for My Books

"Manreet Sodhi Someshwar is a gifted writer of great promise. I have a gut feeling we have a new star rising in Punjab's literary horizon. She has an excellent command of English and a sly sense of humour."

"An enjoyable tale of a sassy girl's headlong race up the corporate ladder."

A Girl With A Book

A girl with a book. 
Terrifies the terror crooks.
Be it Malala.
Or schoolgirls of Nigeria.
How easy to brandish a gun.
Co-opt Allah as a crewman.
A book makes you think.
Question and not blink.
A book in the hands of women 
is a scary thing. To scared men.
