Is there anyone out there who has not read an Agony Aunt column at some point in Life? The greater the ‘Howw’ quotient, the more popular the Column! These columns often strike a chord with us, reminding us of our own dilemmas.
But only a few of us remember that these may be real the problems faced by agonized people, and fewer still spare a thought for the Agony Aunt who deals with these troubles; dispensing advice, finding solutions, offering, as it were, a shoulder to weep on.
Dear Agony Aunt is the story of an online Agony Aunt who has been dealing, for several years, with the most bizarre questions and the most mundane ones asked by a broad spectrum of people.
In the process she has learnt that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Nothing is too scandalizing for her, no matter how zany, silly, sick or perverse.
She comes across problems that are sexual in nature, relationship issues, issues pertaining to identity and image, abuse, medical problems and tensions at work. She deals with all of them with élan.
In Dear Agony Aunt, she shares with the readers slices from her online Agony Aunt column, and also reveals the real-life experiences that gave her the insight to provide solutions to people seeking help.
