Here’s a special giveaway of Shunali Shroff’s ‘Battle Hymn of a Bewildered Mother’- a book that combines lunacy and humour, whether it’s balancing work clients or battling two girls’ questions and demands
Chapter 1: The Making of a Mommy
VICTORIA BECKHAM MAKES IT LOOK SO GLAMOUROUS, GWEN Stefani makes it seem like a picnic. Katie Holmes makes you want to have one by your side at all times, and Angelina Jolie makes it appear alluring. Pregnancies and children have come of age and surely there is no better way of making a style statement than to have a baby in your arms.

About The Author
Shunali Khullar Shroff has worked variously as a journalist, a freelance writer and the owner of a successful PR firm by the name of Spindoctors. That, however, was another incarnation. As soon as the storks visited her, she plunged into motherhood with the trepidation of a reluctant air diver about to take her first leap of faith. An eternal optimist, she mistakenly assumed that she could retire to being a lady of leisure once the kids were out of their diapers. But soon she realized that happy challenges of motherhood last a lifetime.
Ergo she took to writing a now widely-read blog in order to hear herself think. Shunali is an inveterate traveler and apart from writing about parenting and social trends she blogs extensively about travel. Shunali lives in Mumbai with her husband, two daughters, a geriatric dog, and his juvenile companion.
