The event allowed readers the chance to meet Robin Cherian and experience an exclusive look at Jasmine Rhey’s new song, which was inspired by Mr. Cherian’s moving story. The memoir begins following the meeting of Robin and Svitlana. As the story progresses, Mr. Cherian recounts his life with Svitlana, later delving into the impact the tragic loss had on Robin who was left to navigate life without his wife. The story testifies to the power of love and loss, all while discussing the effect Svitlana had on those who looked up to her. “Death is something that happens in life, not something that happens to life,” says Mr. Cherian while discussing the themes within the book. “I think that there’s something to be said about the monumental impact that love can have on our lives, even in the face of loss. That is something I hope readers gain from my story with Svitlana, even through all hardships I may continue to face without her.”

The Kindle E-book is available for purchase, as well as the Paperback version on Amazon. Mr. Cherian has also announced that a portion of the proceeds from each purchase of his book will be donated towards supporting Ukraine and those affected by the ongoing conflict. “I believe that, together, we can bring hope and healing to the people in need,” says Mr. Cherian. “By writing this book, I hoped to capture the essence of my everlasting love for Svitlana and the deep connection we shared. Sundaram is not only a tribute to Svitlana, but also a testament to the power of love that continues to endure even after loss. I hope that readers are inspired to cherish their own relationships, appreciate the beauty of love, and find strength in the face of adversity.” 

Following the book’s release and the event held at Morse Code Lounge, Mr. Cherian aims to continue telling Svitlana’s story through various artistic avenues. With Jasmine Rhey’s new song, readers are allowed a more dynamic understanding of the story’s intended impact, as well as the raw emotions depicted within the book. Through written word, Robin has been able to find solace and respite in reflecting upon the connection and time he shared with Svitlana.
