'Naan thernthedukkappattavala?' (Am I a Chosen One?) is an autobiography in Tamil - a bold and truthful presentation of a courageous woman's journey through life. Shy and timid during girlhood days, the writer found herself to be in 'wonderland' after attaining motherhood!
The writing is in stream-of-consciousness style, taking the reader through the labyrinth of the author's thoughts, ideas and experiences.
