After the success of her 2014 geopolitical drama, also her debut novel, author Simar Malhotra is all set to launch her next book, "Tides Don't Cross".

Set in America and India, the book explores the lives of three young individuals, crashing against the sands of man-made boundaries – political, aspirational, religious, societal and love.

"It is actually a manifestation of the contemporary world through the eyes of a young Indian in America," the 21-year-old author said.

A Stanford University undergraduate, Malhotra had taken a plunge into the world of writing literature with "There Is A Tide" as a 17-year-old, and has never looked back since.

Published by Rupa Publications India, the book will be launched Friday by the former chief minister of Delhi Sheila Dixit.
