"Soul Force" -An Ode to Unsung Heroes in Eastern Eye Magazine

Embarking on the path of a writer came with a vision to spotlight unsung heroes - those whose tales of courage, sacrifice, and strength have often remained in the shadows. Among these was the story of Valliamma Mudliar, a beacon of hope in Gandhi's South African passive resistance movement. Through her tale, "Soul Force" came to life.

The Essence of "Soul Force"

"Soul Force" isn’t merely words on pages; it's a heartfelt homage to history's real characters. At its core, it's Valliamma Mudliar's story - her passion, resilience, and ultimate sacrifice for Gandhi's vision. In her, we find a symbol of hope, a young woman defiant against history's challenges. I penned this narrative hoping to inspire our modern society, illuminating the monumental sacrifices women of yesteryears made to leave behind legacies that continue to shape our world.

An Author's Quest

To me, writing is an act of resurrection, breathing life into the often-forgotten souls of our past. My novels, such as "Exile Child" and "Soul Force", are born out of this passion, bridging the chasm between history and the present, invoking admiration for those who've walked before us and laid the foundation of our heritage.

A Nod from Eastern Eye Magazine

One of the defining moments in my journey as a writer was when I was featured in the esteemed Eastern Eye Magazine. A publication that masterfully blends editorial finesse with tales of determination, Eastern Eye stands as a testament to South African heritage. It showcases trailblazers, pioneers whose stories serve as a beacon, guiding countless dreamers.

Finding "Soul Force" and my journey chronicled within Eastern Eye's pages was an alignment of values and ethos. The magazine, while covering a plethora of subjects, from fashion to business, notably spotlights individuals who've made a mark, echoing the spirit of determination and triumph.

In Conclusion

Our history is replete with tales waiting to be told, stories of grit and valor that remind us of the indomitable human spirit. "Soul Force", Eastern Eye, and countless other narratives serve as reminders of the impact a singular spirit can have in molding our shared legacy.

Every tale I narrate, every character I sketch is a small step toward making history tangible, resonant, and alive for the modern reader.

Join me in this exploration, as we celebrate stories that have defined our collective journey.
