  1. Tavleen, thank you for providing this interview. I sincerely appreciate what Ms. Shilesh-Doshi says about the positive effects of adults reading youth literature. Also, it was encouraging to read how she put the emphasis of author’s achievement on self-excelling in the craft of writing.
    I must acknowledge, although the content of publication may not be very violent, the book cover of Tattooted Music is uncomfortable to observe. Would this not be a concern for parents, teachers, and some young persons striving to uphold high moral standards in their lives?
