“It feels good to be supported. But first we have to learn to support our feelings and values. So today I decided I am going to take this step.” -From Live Your Dreams



If you would have experienced that creative flow when inspiration strikes and you cannot keep yourself from flowing with your thoughts. When you are in that flow, time loses its relevance. It is just you and your creation. Feel all that and more as you find yourself lost in Rhea’s creative world where she takes you by hand and makes you see her exquisite pieces.


Rhea loves traveling and the way she sees London, Zurich, Himalayas, Maldives and many more places… will make you want to follow in her footsteps. Her experiences are powerful, vivid, and moving. See the magnificent Himalayas through her eyes, watch the streets of London become her fashion haven and find the jewels of the Maldives as she visits all these destinations.


If you love self-help tools, you have found just the book. BE YOU is the message on the book cover. Live Your Dreams:: BE YOU. Often in the walks of life, we dawn various roles a daughter, spouse, parent, or as highly-proficient skilled job owner, but we forget to dawn that one hat we are all born with. ‘BE YOU’. Find yourself, as Rhea discovers herself and her inherent talents somewhere in the flow of life.

“Identity and striving for a goal are both important. But never at your own cost. Never let the little voice in you fade away. Listen to it often and take it’s advice.” -From Live Your Dreams


“Sometimes, we just tend to take our families for granted forgetting that these little moments spent with them will be the ones we cherish for life.”


Are you settling for a Pay Check, when what you really want is a life?
Is the price of freedom – a lack of true achievement and life of busy work?
What if life presents you a chance, a chance to follow your dreams?
Do you BELIEVE in your dreams?
These are the questions Rhea is asking herself as she is swishing through the lanes of life. Most people dream of having a story that Bollywood movies are made up of. How about actually living one? Opposites attract and repel in this tale of love, inspiration, and dreams. The beautiful, adventurous Rhea and the ambitious, intellectual Sahil are drawn to each other but require some pivotal times and a whirlwind of emotions to understand each other and their dreams. It takes you through a journey, a journey within and answers those questions which only you know subconsciously.
These lines will talk to your heart. And this book will take you through a journey…make you re-think and re-write your story.


“As they say, it is easy to fight but very hard to make anyone understand your point of view. Go with the flow. Do not fight the current. Because if you try to fight the current, chances are you might exhaust yourself and drown. So, my simple advice is, go with the flow. And believe you are well protected.” -From Live Your Dreams



Enjoy the life as it goes. Enjoy the stopover that may come in future. Stop being unhappy about where you are and where you want to be. It is the interim time that the journey is all about… make it fun ,make it exciting. Your adventures, your paths are what will make your destination worthwhile. Never ever forget to Live your dreams.

“Set your priorities right and then live from values set out. And don’t do something because he wants or she wants or what will they think. Do what you want.” -From Live Your Dreams.

In the Words of an Author: An Interview With Dr. Paul Golden, MD

Have there been any authors who have influenced your work? If so, who?


Was being an author something you always wanted to do?


Why did you write “An Insider’s View of Bipolar Disease” and your memoir “Bipolar M.D.-A Doctor’s Experience with the Curses and Blessings of Bipolar Disorder?”

After 39 years of providing medical care, particularly in a tough subspecialty and with the issues above, I wanted to start a new career as an advocate for mental illness. Having dealt with bipolar disorder for over forty years I felt that I could educate and help remove the stigma by writing and speaking. Target audiences have been behavioral health professionals such as the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and age groups at risk for the first hints of mental disorders namely in the second and third decades of life when crucial life choices are made.

What does major depression feel like for you?

I have had five discrete episodes of major depression starting in my third year of medical school. I feel a kind of switch going on in my brain. I start with early morning awakening which I call morning terror. This progresses rapidly to being afraid of the coming day, hopelessness, pessimism, guilt (feeling a burden to loved ones), loss of interest in things that usually give me pleasure, agitation and ultimately difficulty with concentration and decision making.

What does mania feel like for you?

For me mania or hypomania is more difficult to realize early. It creeps up on me. I start driving faster and more aggressively, I feel omnipotent. I feel too well. My thoughts are rapid as is my speech. I delve into multiple projects at one time and don’t need much sleep. My wit is quick. I feel impatient with others to the point of feeling superior. I spend money beyond my means. In times past I was hyper-sexual. If not caught soon enough I am irritable and piss off friends, family and total strangers, the latter by being intrusive.

What is worse for you, depression or mania?

By far my five discrete episodes of bipolar depression beginning in my third year of medical school have been more terrifying than the many hypomanic (bipolar II) times sprinkled in between. The despair is invisible to others, hard to describe and associated with a kind of physical pain.

All these artists and politicians you cite—how do you know they really had these disorders?

As for artists and politicians with either major depression disorder or bipolar disorder I have read biographies of all cited in my book and in some cases  memoirs and letters about all the highly accomplished people.  In some cases the diagnoses were already documented and in some one can make a forensic diagnosis. These and many more that I did not mention are all discussed by Kay R. Jamison, herself bipolar, (Professor of Psychology at Johns Hopkins University) in her book “Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament”.

How has medicine changed since you started in 1974 and when you retired (2012)?

In 1974 medicine was fun. As an intern, resident and fellow in the hospital setting I could  make the tough decisions, act and sometimes improvise. As a community internist and nephrologist I had the autonomy. Between the rise of Corporate Medicine (the Insurer/Pharmaceutical/Government/Complex) physicians have lost autonomy and bioethics has taken a dive.

What would you say the most rewarding part of being an author is?

Getting feedback from readers.

What advice do you have for authors just starting out in their journey?

Keep at it.

Do you have a writing ritual? If so, please explain.

I write when I am inspired.

If you could have a conversation with any one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Benjamin Franklin Because he accomplished so much.

Would you care to provide an excerpt from one of your books as a sample of your work?
