Sharada demonstrates what a strong will can achieve by turning her sorrows into better lives for others. The will Sharada demonstrates in her story is truly inspiring and sets ban example of how we need to wake up and lend a hand anywhere there is a need.

The Golden Lady of Nepal, touched my heart in ways I did not think imaginable. It was a difficult book to read knowing it is an non-fiction and learning of the lifestyles even possible in other parts of the world. It opened my eyes as to how fortunate our lives are in theUnited States and how much we need more Sharada’s in life. I would definitely recommend this book as a must read.

Riveting, hair-raising, and deplorable are only a few words I can think of to describe this extraordinary book, The Golden Lady of Nepal. I sat on the edge of my seat with tear stained eyed yet intrigued by Sharada’s never ending source of spirited energy to keep fighting. She survived one assault after another and still continues to help the lives of others live in a corrupt free world.

I was not sure what to expect when I was asked to read The Golden Lady of Nepal, but after reading the Introduction it was peaking my curiosity as to how anyone could survive such a life and wanted to read further. Sharada endured personal assaults to her body, mind and emotions yet get back up and keeps fighting. Her spirit is enlightening and most captivating.
