Tooba Rasheed, a literature graduate from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi. She is Masters in Literature and Sociology and works as a Project Manager at Cenveo Publisher Services.
She’s an author of Novel “Zerafa – A Modern Fairy Tale” which was recently launched in Srinagar on May 11.
Zerafa is her first attempt at novel writing. Other than this, she has written short stories. ‘A Beggar Woman’ is her published short story which yet again envisages a child’s psyche under a traumatic war-like atmosphere of Kashmir.
The novel explores the subject of parenting and how even the smallest of parenting mistakes can wreak havoc with the lives of children, unless they are realized and rectified in earnest.
Tooba Rasheed belongs to Rawalpora Srinagar & has done her schooling from Iqbal Memorial Institute.
“As a writer, I experiment with language and emotions by testing both under challenging psychological tension. Such exploration of psychological drama with an experimentation with the possibilities of language as a system of signs gives a magical touch to my stories”
She is currently working on the sequel of the book which will most likely be on the market in 2018.
