On asking about her expectations about the book, Umera replied, “What I have in mind is that the readers have high expectations. Every time when you come up with a book it doesn’t matter how established writer you are,
every new book is a new challenge for the writer to make up with the reader’s expectations. It’s just like you go for playing a new match, you aim high and try to score high and please your audience”.
