Shivani grew up in the East Midlands and currently lives with her husband and three children in England. Shivani successfully completed her BSc in Psychology in 2005 and MEd in Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties in 2009 and currently works in Education. She is passionate about children and the development of spiritual education promoting the values, emotional literacy and character of individuals; her definition of true education. Shivani has pursued her love for writing through her first publications of True Colours and endeavours to write a collection of Children’s Stories promoting Human Values.
True Colours is a story about Shivani, a young British Asian Indian girl, torn between making choices her family want her to make and following her heart. Although Shivani always knew that her parents would decide who she marries and had accepted this, her world crumbled around her when she fell in love with a man her heart chose.
After narrowly escaping a marriage her father intended for her, Shivani then had a choice of ‘betraying’ her family and community or her heart and who she truly is. This is a crossroad that so many people come to in this modern age? Why and at what cost?
