Book titled ‘The Destiny’ released in Kohima

book release
Dimapur, August 12: The president of Nagaland Press Association (NPA), H Chishi formally released the eBook titled “The Destiny” written by senior journalist Oken Jeet Sandham at the Tibet Kitchen on Wednesday. The book launch programme was held with minimum attendance by observing all the COVID-19 protocols and social distancing and using face masks.
The book is available in Amazon at Rs 250 and the paperback at Rs 300.
Appreciating the author for writing on his wife, Chishi described as most befitting the writing of a book on her who had been in the ICU for more than a decade. Recalling his association with the author for more than two decades, Chishi said his patience and perseverance while his wife was in the ICU for more than a decade had exhibited in many ways. “We may have planned many ways in our lives but God’s purpose is different,” he said adding that the book “The Destiny” would surely be a God’s plan for your beautiful destiny.”
Chishi expressed hope that the book written on extraordinary journeys by Sandham would surely be the inspiration to the people.
Narrating how he came up with the idea of writing the book “The Destiny,” Sandham said it was on his wife “Aneile Kenye” who was discharged from the ICU, Naga Hospital Authority Kohima (NHAK) on March 30, 2020, after staying there for more than 10 years. He said he never imagined that she would be staying in the hospital for such a long period, and then when he was thinking as to how long they would still live in the hospital and go to which way, the outbreak of the novel coronavirus changed the course of their life. Her discharge from the ICU, NHAK on March 30, 2020 “brings her the destiny” to unite me and children, he said. This turn of event hugely influenced me to write a book on her and finally, it came to ‘The Destiny,’ he added.
KPC Adviser Kopelo (Kops) Krome and joint secretary Alem Jamir were among others who attended the book launch. (Page News Service)
