Khwahishein is a sequel of my earlier publication Salwatein-Shailyy

Shailyy-a born poetess, whose first story was published in Nandan at a tender age of 13 years, has many accolades to her credit, she has won many National awards at school and college level in poetry and prose. Prizes won by her include
First prize-Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Trust essay competition 1991, Second prize-Age Care Trust India essay competition 1992, First prize-The Young Times of India story writing competition 1992, and First prize-Delhi University Poetry Competition 1994.

Renowned poet Surendra Sharma while launching the book on Friday at Islamic Centre at New Delhi said Shailyy is a rare combination who is a prose writer as well as a poet, it is wonderful to see a prose writer being equally successful as a poet. Because in prose every detail is elaborated, while in poetry all details are condensed into a single word/sentence. A person can either be a successful poet of a prose writer. Surendra Sharma very rightly summed it as “Prose writer apne lekhni me boond ko sagar banata hai jabki, Kavi sagar ko boond bana deta hai.

Apart from being a successful writer Shailyy is also a renowned Astrologer practising Astro consultancy with a vast clientele in America and European countries. 

Khwahishein is a compilation of Hindi Urdu poems, the book launch was held in New Delhi, Chief Guests cricketer Gautam Gambhir and Surendra Sharma launched the book, media interviews and high tea was organised for guests after the launch.
