Anchor My Heart is the debut book of Nyari Nain, a marine engineer onboard foreign-going vessels. She is currently working as the Fleet Superintendent with Maersk. Taking about her book Nyari quotes, “Only 2% women represent shipping amidst a whooping 1.2 million seafarers across the globe, and I am one of them. Having circumnavigated the earth carrying sugar, coal, and what not for the world, my experiences have been deeply enriching as that of the lone lady protagonist of my book.”
Anchor my heart narrates the story of Lehar Saxena, a diligent engineer in the merchant navy. She finds an unusual turmoil in her life as love creeps in through her hard cocoon, being in a male-dominated world of shipping. The book is inspired by true events and the harsh lifestyles seafarers endure while at sea.
Dr. Sohan Roy stated, “I am delighted to be a part of this book release function. I am sure it will be an eye-opener for many and a source of inspiration for the young generation who wish to take a plunge into this lucrative industry. I wish the author a bright future ahead,”
Nyari is also a TEDx speaker and a national-level volleyball player. She has been featured in the Friday magazine, Dubai, and awarded with Young Seafarer achievement award for authoring a book by the NMDCC, DG Shipping, Govt of India.
