Dedicated to my beautiful sister, Jyoti - a very brave woman who lost her battle with breast cancer in August 2010, when she was a little over 38 years old.
Hope Faith Time and Me is a song written by Jyoti and is the title song of the album. It talks about her journey with cancer.
It is unfair that my youngest sibling has left me a legacy. Jyoti taught me how to live, both in her life and in her death. And it is only fitting, that for the rest of my life she left me a legacy of love, courage & grace.
