Let me introduce you to Tamara Alvi Chapter One!

What’s on your heart!

Tamara Alvi

This is who is on my heart and although she is fictitious, a character I made up last night as I finished washing the dishes after my family had eaten our evening meal, she is very real to me and I know she is probably very real to you.

Tamara Alvi.

I want to introduce you to Tamara Alvi

She is depicted as this woman below but she is not the woman below.

She could be any Urdu Speaking Muslim woman.

A woman who speaks Urdu her mother tongue as well as English and is a seeker of Truth within herself and outside herself.

A woman who only finds peace when she arrives at the Truth.

The Truth many want to bury, hide from, deny, reject, toss out.

Do you want to know more about Tamara?

I will reveal more tomorrow.

If anything in this blog has really resonated with you and you would like to discuss the subject further with Taniya privately then use this link.




Having qualified as a Social Worker in July 1991 from Coventry University, it has been over two decades that I have been on the front line working with children and young people who are traumatized and on the margins of society. Although I studied Psycho-dynamic counselling for two years at Goldsmiths College (1991-1993), I decided to integrate Psycho-dynamic theories and skills into my Social work practice and flirt with and immerse myself in studying Islam as well as interfaith dialogue and friendships. For the last 20 years, I have been working in a multi-disciplinary Youth Offending Team in South London, comprised of Professional colleagues from different faiths and cultural backgrounds trying to support young people in the criminal justice system. I am married and mother to three sons, and juggle Social Work and interfaith dialogue with my writing, studying and the needs of home and family.
