Overview

We have all lost a dear one at some point in our lives. Grief, depending on the relationship with the one deceased, affects us differently. I feel my Dada and Mausi's absence every single day for disparate reasons. But these two losses have taught me that their time had come. And that life is about celebrating those alive and not just mourning those who have moved on. Optimism and faith are the keys to overcoming the roadblocks life puts in our way.

This book tries to state that there is always hope for anyone coping with grief. No one can tell us exactly how; the voyage has to be undertaken by each of us individually.

Editorial Reviews

Reader Views - Irene Watson
Sweta Srivastava Vikram takes her inner experiences and transforms them into fluid words in "Because All is Not Lost."

Sometimes dark, however poignant in nature, "Because All is Not Lost" touches the heart and soul. Each piece offers inner reflection and gives the reader an opportunity to make peace with his or her own feelings. I admire Vikram's ability to transform her inner thoughts into such moving works of word art.

Meet the Author

Sweta Srivastava Vikram (www.swetavikram.com) is a multi-genre writer. Born in India, Sweta spent her formative years between the steel city of Rourkela, the blue waters of North Africa, and the green hills of Mussoorie before arriving in bustling New York.

Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in literary journals, online publications, and anthologies across three continents and six countries. Sweta has held attended workshops and artist residencies in Europe and USA. She is a graduate of Columbia University.

As a teenager, Sweta loved literature with the same passion as she loathed the sciences. She wanted to be an Indian Jane Austen. She recollects that her organic chemistry notebook in Mussoorie contained poetic inscriptions instead of formulas. By the time she was fifteen, she and her friends had read Gone With the Wind multiple times and fallen in love with Pride & Prejudice's Mr. Darcy. In one of the geography quizzes about the tribes of the world, despite knowing the answer ("Aborigines. I can never forget it after that day," she admits) Sweta wrote that "Mr. Darcy" was the nomadic tribe of Australia.

Sweta lives in New York City with her husband, way too many Apple products, dreams, wine, books, and lots of friends. Aside from writing and reading, she loves dancing, taking yoga classes, playing the piano, traveling, cooking, talking to her two nieces, and entertaining guests.
