About the Book
Treasure a Tear is a collection of stories and poemsfocusing on our fight to sustain through pain and suffering in life.
All of us do cry at times. Disgust, despair and even ecstasy use tears. Some feel light after crying, as if rid of grief and some run into depression even after sobbing. Tears that cure the heart also cleanse the eyes and the mind, leaving one with sharpened vision. There are some who hold back their tears in heart. Infusing them with the light of their spirit, turn them into pearls with the warmth of their heart.
There is mysterious might in holding tears in heart. These tears, as pearls, shine with beauty and happiness, spreading splendour around. Stories and poems in the collection Treasure a Tear capture these heroic revolutionary moments in the lives of heroes among us.
