    Book Review | She’ll Never Make It by Masoom Minawala

    In a world where ambitious, young women often undergo a lot of skepticism, Masoom Minawala’s new book, “She’ll Never Make It,” is a light-hearted guide on resilience and empowerment.

If a life is lived across many homes—from balmy Chennai to muggy Mumbai, the crackling expansiveness of Delhi to the breath-taking splendour of Vancouver in spring—where do you truly belong? If you are constantly on the move, is home just what customs can clear? And how do you find love, in the middle of it all, when you do not or cannot stay in one city long enough?
