What emerges from this often painful biography/memoir is a vivid portrait of a dynamic, brave young woman who overcame a series of serious personal challenges without ever letting them defeat her, who held true to her vision of what education could be, and whose luminous spirit touched the lives of all who encountered her.

This is an amazing biography for an amazing person. It's even more heartwarming knowing that this book was written by Jhumki's father, who must have been very proud for all that his daughter achieved in the short time she was here with us. This book is worth 5/5 and nothing less
Readers will be inspired by this book, but it also provides food for thought. I recommend it to people who are drawn to new ideas and want to explore them through the matrix of Jhumki's original mind.
Brave and beautifully crafted, this riveting book chronicles Jhumki Basu’s inspiring and all-too-short journey to change the world of science education. Wise, honest, and filled with grace in the face of a devastating diagnosis, this tender story will leave you both mesmerized and inspired.
