She was also felicitated with ?Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi award? by National union of Journalists, Uttarakhand for her outstanding contribution in writing and journalism. Her first book titled ?Swami Vivekananda: The known philosopher the unknown poet? published in 2007 on Vivekananda's lesser known poetic persona has been internationally acclaimed.
