Srutimala Duara spoke how she started writing on the very day she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She said she wanted to share her experiences with a wider world of readers, as she felt it might "help people who take life for granted with the belief that cancer happens to others, not to them, women who think nothing can be wrong with their bodies just because there is no outward sign and do not go for yearly checkup, and for those diagnosed with cancer.
Hence, this book."
