While walking around a book shop, I happened to run over a book titled ‘Milk and Honey.’ I did not understand what it was about or who the writer was. Truly, I couldn’t have cared less to investigate. Later at night, while I was going through my Instagram feed, I ran over a few posts that had hashtags ‘milk and honey.’
And that’s really no coincidence! I chose to visit the author’s instagram handle, the person who was tagged. And the name said- Rupi Kaur. After 1 hour, I had relatively stalked all of her profile. I got hands on her books, the exact following day. From that point forward, she is one of the writers I truly respect.
Here’s my adoration and regard for her. The majority of our top picks by Rupi Kaur-

writing this book was extremely difficult for my spirit. i’ve never faced more self doubt than i have over these past two years. so to sit here now and read all your words of support helps transform how i see myself and my work. your kindness has brought in some radical self love. thank you. since i opened up to the craft of writing and i first took the stage to perform in 2009 i’ve always gone out of my way to work really hard and strive to make my vision come to life. but no one makes it happen on their own. since day 1 my family and best friends have always taught me to speak up and speak clearly. the activists and teachers that i did community work with helped build the ideals i stand by today. my team holds me down on tour. at the office. in spirit. 365 days a year. my agent and the publishers who trust my vision no matter how ridiculous it may sound have such a big part to play. and you all. your love of the art gives me the strength to continue to write and share through the most difficult times. someone once told me “the centre of the wheel spins because of all its surrounding parts” and it’s true. this journey is possible because it goes beyond me. the wheel turns with support. this has become a movement because we are standing together. and i am just deeply thankful for all of it.
