When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

One of my goals this year was to read more diverse books and the one that I kept hearing about is WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI. I was intrigued by the title and the cover of the book. It sounded like an interesting read because of the names. They aren’t names that you might hear every […]
