India Abroad Feature Article!

This week’s India Abroad magazine (August 7 issue) ran a 3-page feature article about The Weight of Silence, the children, and my journey with them and the issues affecting them.

I believe it may be one of the best articles or reviews done so far on the book – author Prem Panicker interviewed me extensively over several weeks, which resulted in a magazine feature that is warm and thoughtful, filled with humanity and care for these kids. Prem’s compassionate writing style tells the stories of the kids and the book, with a sidebar featuring Sumitra, the miracle baby; and another sidebar about my journey to India with daughter Chandler.

I do hope that you will check it out, and pass it on to whomever might be at all interested:

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
