" The Courage To Say No " It is my book's name.

Dr. M
Posted November 24, 2019 from United States
 " The Courage To Say No " I have written a book, published in New York just recently in Sept. 2019
This book The Courage To Say No, is a remarkable, empowering, extraordinary bold and courageous story for our times. I need support for my book from all the sisters of World Pulse.

I was born and raised in Karachi Pakistan, and my parents gave me a very beautiful childhood, I was their favorite child out of 7 children, I was a brilliant student and became a doctor, but I don't know what went wrong, I faced every kind of harassment, but I struggled with courage, although I am still in trauma but luckily I am still alive. 

I am a US citizen now and living in New York.

I have written a book, and it is published in New York by Sky Horse publishers in Sept. 2019. 

This is the direct link of the book on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Courage-Say-No-Pakistani-Exploitation/dp/15107422...

It is on Amazon and Kindle and hard copies are available in Barnes and Noble and other book stores.

 

My book received wonderful reviews from best selling authors from USA and across the globe.

I .am writing one

"Dr. Raana Mahmood’s Courage to Say No depicts in grim detail a culture of sexual oppression and abuse so extreme, it’s almost incomprehensible. An important, incisive first-person narrative by a woman who experienced some of the worst victimization imaginable and emerged with her principles intact, her spirit unbroken. A must-read for anyone concerned about human rights, political corruption, and the status of women." —Catherine Pelonero, New York Times bestselling author of Kitty Genovese and Absolute Madness

Hello Dear Dr. Raana,

Welcome to the World Pulse community, dear! I'm so proud of you that you have shared your first post and work. Please be safe and consider updating your story to "members only" and considering changing your profile to an alias so whoever is following won't be able to and please consider using a VPN, too.

Having said that, I'm so delighted and pleased that you have shared your very first story on the forum. I hope there are many more to follow and that you find so many more loving sisters to love, encourage, and support you, too. I know you will!

Oh, please note, if you would like to respond back to anyone who has commented on your post, you will want to use the back arrow key when responding so that the commentator will receive an automated email notification that you have responded, otherwise they won't know unless they revisit your story.

Hope you're safe, and having a good day, dear!

Thank you my dear Jill for guiding me in detail. How can I use I mean to apply VPN, and also the free one. I am living with my son and he is on student visit, he is too busy in studying and his job, and I am on visit visa, I can't work on that. One more question, if I will send reply here is it private ? or any one member can see ?
My dear Jill, I have a request that please read my book, than you will get to know my struggle against corruption and as a result I had to leave my job, family and my country, now I want my country people know about my book and my struggle, because I was quite since then and living underground. So I created an account on the You Tube with my name Dr. Raana Mahmood and uploaded 2 videos, one is about my book ( Dr. Raana's book " The Courage To Say No " ) and the other is reviews for the book. So this is my humble request to kindly watch both, like, comments and subscribe my channel. This is necessary for my survival. Kindly ask your circle too for my You Tube channel. I am trying Pakistani people to watch my You Tube channel. Now I don't want to remain underground, I just don't want people specially that criminals know my location. and I want to use VPN, but how ? and now I am having changed my profile setting.
Thank you again for standing up with me .
Warmly,
Raana

You're very welcome, love:-)

Tunnel Bear has free VPN service but it's only for a few hours a month, but it's better than nothing.

Anyone on the forum can see your comments, dear.

I'm following your YouTube channel now, dear.

You're welcome. I will share your YouTube channel on Twitter and FB and add your book to my Amazon wish list, too.

Let me know if you need anything else, dear. You can either private message me again on World Pulse or by email, too.

My dear Jill, I saw somewhere you send me the link of YouTube, but now I can't find it.
And I want to say you are just awesome.
I want to make a video on depression, just for 8 minutes video for awareness,what do you say ?
I also want to add story in the voices section, I tried few times, but I goes to the post section.

Hello there,

This is the link, dear: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCENBF-ij91-RPp6ohTquq-g

Aw, thank you! I try:-)

Yes!! And, yes. There are several members that suffer from depression. Please do.

Hmm. So, the link isn't working for the posting? You can private message me, if you need to clarify, or if it's a tech issue you can contact "[email protected]" and Hannah can assist and let IT know.

I shared your book and YouTube links on my FB and Twitter pages, by the way. Hope it helps.

Have a good one!

Hi Jill,
Thank you and no doubt you are a great support.
I will try tomorrow to add my story on voices section.
I am really thankful for your support for my book on You Tube on your circle.
I will try tomorrow to create my Twitter account.
Yes I have an account on Good Read, which I am not using, I will check that too tomorrow.
Love you.

Hi Raana:-)

You're welcome!

Great! Let me know when you're on Twitter so I can follow you:-)

What is "Good Read?"

Nov 29, 2019
Nov 29, 2019

Tomorrow in the morning I will try to make Twitter account. If I feel any difficulty I will bother you,
Oh my God, I forgot to say you, " Happy Thanks Giving "
Good Read is also a website, and it was my publisher requirement at the time of publishing my book 2 months ago that I should make an account on every social site, including FB, Twitter, Instagram, You Tube, and Good Read.
For FB, I attempted so many times and I couldn't do that, because they blocked me every time, I created on Twitter but not with my name, now I gotget what it was, I created You tube few days ago as you know, Instagram i will do after Twitter. I created Good Read but i still didn't use it. My publisher wanted me to promote the book, I was scared, but I don't know how long I would have to be underground, I am jobless, and not promoting my book at all. So from now on I will use social media, I think when people will know my story, it will give me strength.
I am grateful to you to make comments on you tube, it will help me to attract more .
Love you.
Raana

My dear Dawn,
I am thankful and very thrilled to know that you and your network is standing with me, otherwise I am all alone and stop trusting anyone, with that feeling I was thinking that no one will buy and read my book, and I was very sad with that feeling, but today when I read your message that you and your network is with me I am really feeling so stress free that you can't imagine, it's a blessing from God. Please let me know your feed back about my book, I will be waiting very anxiously.
My dear Dawn, I have a request that when you will read my book you will get to know my struggle against corruption and as a result I had to leave my job, family and my country, now I want my country people know about my book and my struggle, because I was quite since then and living underground. So I created an account on the You Tube with my name Dr. Raana Mahmood and uploaded 2 videos, one is about my book ( Dr. Raana's book " The Courage To Say No " and the other is reviews for the book.
