It was great pleasure to read the book of poems, very personal expressions by Bindiya. Komal Bedi Sohal's photographs are deeply illustrative of the subjects of the poems.

An ode to all women. A beauty of a book. A book i eagerly want on my bookshelf. A dream keeper for sure! Bindiya nourishes us with her words. She speaks directly to me as a reader. "Who am I? "She asks questions and owns the ability to draw us into her wonderful words of emotions. Bindiya encourages me to be myself. "Dream Keeper" is a courageous and joyous book.

"As a photographer, it gives me great joy to look at the work of peers, simply to enjoy another perspective to life. I love the moments Komal has captured, they are raw, beautiful, simple and extremely human. Each photograph has a story pouring out. And Bindiya uses words effortlessly to tell them. This dance between pictures and words is an absolutely delightful read." (PRASHANT GODBOLE) "Award winning Photographer, illustrator, sculptor, painter and advertising veteran".
"Congratulations on your so well accomplished poetry book! Beautiful in words and images, so impressive they can be. I did not know that mysterious, hidden, sensitive gift of poetry in you. Sometimes it takes a long and difficult crossing of life for words to spring from the humblest and most dreamy of the invisible worlds that we have enclosed in ourselves. In this case, withing yourself." (DR.
