    Speaking about her book, "I'm silent but the screaming won't stop, I'm calm but the restlessness goes on, I'm smiling but my frown won't fade, I'm laughing but the tears don't die away, I'm living but that won't stop death from coming my way" - a young Shaheen Bhatt wrote in her journal at the age of 15.
