Description of "Over a Cup of Coffee"

There are some who write because there is a vast commercial market out there. There are some whom publishers help to write so that their thoughts can reach a vast audience. And then, there are those who write because they have something to say. Madhavi Hadker belongs to this family.

Simplicity is the hallmark of her narrative style. Her story telling is charmingly evocative. The stories paint an imagery that one relates to spontaneously.

Each story is engrossing. The poignancy is palpable. They are so emotionally touching. The urge to move on to the next story is irresistible. One has to start with just any story and you know.

Madhavi, at the tender age of six, was attacked by the life threatening Encephalitis – Cerebral Infarct... She did not allow herself to be defeated. Instead her passion for life and strong willed nature, helped her to move on, undeterred, treating it as just an incidental medical mishap in her life.

She soon marched on to achieve a degree in Psychology and a Post Graduate degree in Education Management. She is now an inspiring teacher, an engaging raconteur and an accomplished artist.

“God has purposely put me to the test. AND I HAVE TO PASS IT” says a character in one of her stories. Madhavi has done just that with admirable style and aplomb.

About the author(s)

Madhavi Hadker was born in 1970, in Mumbai. At the tender age of six, her life took a complete somersault when she suffered from a viral infection called Encephalitics. However, Madhavi's passion for living and her strong-willed nature helped Madhavi to overcome this setback --- & to lead a near normal lifestyle.

Madhavi completed her schooling from Jamnabai Narsee School, and then marched ahead to complete a Diploma course in Education as she was really fascinated with the teaching profession. Later, she ran her own nursery school for three years, as she felt that teaching young minds was a wonderful challenge. She has also worked in a few voluntary organizations like the 'Urban Community Development Centre' and 'Aseema' where she got a golden opportunity to teach both the adults as well as the slum children how to read and write.

Today, Madhavi has a Postgraduate Diploma in Education Management, a degree in the fascinating subject Psycholgy and a career as a school teacher. She is very fond of art, loves to read and to travel.

Madhavi lives with her family in Mumbai.
