Award Winner

The Other Shore

My recent collection of short stories, THE OTHER SHORE won the Feathered Quill Book Award! Available at: In this story collection, we meet ordinary people who grapple with extraordinary challenges—a precarious balance between the love of life, the inevitability of death and the connection between humans and nature. Some tales hover between reality and fantasy, while others make a comment about customs and tradition, social prejudice, altruism and kindness, ambitions and failures, and failures resulting in transformation. The stories come alive with characters of Indian descent, their American friends, and people living all around the globe. "Madhu Bazaz Wangu is part gentle guru, part teasing sprite, and part firm realist in this wide-ranging collection of lovely stories. I read The Other Shore with considerable pleasure, and the pages turned easily and quickly....

It has hued my beliefs and values with meaning. Hope having read it you too would continue to reflect upon it and feel connection with your true self. I call that Authentic Self, my inner mentor and guide. ...

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

I fondly recall the popular aphorisms my father often quoted to ingrain lessons in us. “Nip the evil in the bud,” “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,” “Never stop learning” and so on. The one that came recently to the mind is, “God helps those who help themselves.” This is because I’ve been putting as much effort in healing myself as my healthcare workers did and are doing.  How much effort you, as a patient, put in the pre-operative and post-operative doctors’ recommendations makes hell of a difference in your complete recovery. The exercises to prepare for the surgery, physical therapy exercises, taking prescribed medications timely including painkillers, nutritious food and plenty of sleep must become essential part of your day.  For me, first week...
