‘I loved it, Dipika. You and I are different in many ways. I am not sure we would fully agree on what and where we are. But we are also are the same. I really connected with Kanishka. Life, to me, is also all about connections among all of us, but also connections we make in our mind among events and happenstance, and the things we learn from their resonance. I’ve never had an experience anything like what you had when you lost Jaya, but I could feel it, and how it shaped the way you connect with the world, and how you connect it all in your consciousness. I really, really like your epilogue. Thanks…’ —Eric Frederick on Kanishka
‘This book offers genuine insight into what it feels like to be a young woman who follows her heart around the globe rather than following the ‘shoulds.’ What it’s like to be a second generation Indian-American who steps outside the lines. And what it’s like to be a person crafting a life for herself on a narrow, winding and often confusing path, rather than sleepily following the broad highway paved by expectations and convention. It was definitely a unique page-turner. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I’m looking forward to the next instalment!’ —–KE, on The Elopement

‘Dipika is a[n] author who clearly has been writing for years. Her ability to illustrate a particular moment, object, or emotion is amazing. Her writing style is different than what I am accustomed to reading. Its almost poetic. As the reader you can expect to gain insight into the mind, heart and soul of a Woman who lives life passionately and purposely. Also, Dipika does a nice job at outlining the good and not so pretty reality of what it means to defy cultural norms.” —Anonymous, on The Elopement
