Awesome and beautiful socialite Shobha De is not only a charming lady , but, a mother with a difference. Her effort to keep her many children aware of the right thing to do, think and her letters show a genuine effort. some of the experiences she had undergone have provide a ring of familiarity to many of us as readers. Her letters awake interest and provide an insight to the life of rich and famous.they are real persons with feelings all the humans experience and troubles many of us are spared of. there are no sparks which can tell she is a genius. But , it shows us she is a mother - and a woman who wants her children are spared of any mishaps . she wants them to keep up with the traditions and rituals. wants to bind the family in one unit. I personally wanted to know and find out how she interacts with her step children and how many letters has she written to them...etc. trying to see what is not obvious. but, she stands acquitted.

"The relationship between a mother and her children is unquestionably the most special human bond there is. In this book, best-selling author Shobha De writes a series of letters to her six children on the key concerns of every mother and child in the twenty-first century: family values and tradition; discipline and the familiar bugbears of telephone calls, late nights and internet chats; growing pains and adolescent anxieties about love, sex and friendship; religion and God, the eternal verities; and the challenge of being a responsible parent.
Rich compassionate, loving, witty and wise, these letters will touch the hearts of readers everywhere."
