What inspired you to start writing?
I am one of those who want to do whatever they saw in their daily life. Lots of dream and lot to do, but sometimes situation hatred, that’s why I’ve decided to start writing. When I was in 9th standard, my English teacher told me that you have potential to do something different, Please be honest for your dreams. These words definitely changed my life and I too became a storyteller.
What did you like to read when you were a boy?
When I was a chid, I was biggest fan of “Champak” and “Diamond Comics”. I still remember those days when my father used to go to metrovcity or district, he used to asked me what you want and my answer as usual was “Papa comics la lena”. I miss those days.
What is the greatest challenge in writing a book?
Book itself is a challenge, firstly we think about a plot then start working on script and then the promotional strategy. A lot to do but when someone praises for your work then all sleepless nights gets recovered which we’ve spent while writing a book. It’s really easy to start writing a book but very tough to complete it, someone said; Weather you do or you can’t do, there is not a midway. With the same thought I’ve tried to deliver my best in my book.
How much research do you do before writing the book?
We have plotted a story of certain time or period. We have to do proper research of that period and what happened at that time. While writing Chavanni Gang of my “Eight Entities”, I’ve researched a lot about salvage pickers and Indian politics. To overcome controversies its necessary to do a proper research and planning while writing a book.
What motivated you to write the book “8 Entities”?
From the last three years I am working on my dream project that was of Romantic & Scientific genre fiction, many of my friends know about it and asked me always when will you release your Novel and I always revert with same “After 1 year”. While writing that novel, the point stroked in my mind that now its time to release a book. I’ve penned down Eight Entities within a month and when my mother read it she said, it is perfect and then what happen we all know. No such motivation but yes the three points that helped me while writing are
Writer because of Determination, Engineer because of Addiction and Activist because of Passion.
Can you tell us more about your latest book “8 Entities”?
While travelling this journey of 20 years, I’ve met with many people. Sometimes situation made me critical and somehow happy. To never forget it, I started writing. I don’t know what to write or it reaches to end or not but one thing that inspired me is output that made me Immortal. I pen down eight stories with eight different genres called Eight Entities.
How did you come up with the idea of writing anthology genre book?
Generally a novel contains more than 40,000 words and approximate 200 pages, this is a big task and its really tough to maintain the same flow throughout the book. To overcome this fear I wrote short stories because it gave us confidence to do the big task.
All eight stories in the book are on social issues with the theme “Forget the situation, we are here to change, Not to suffer”
Who are your favourite authors?
I like to read about political or ancient mythology fictions. I am biggest fan of Swaraj by Arvind Kejriwal, Fault in our stars by John Green, Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagat and Shiva Trilogy by Amish and Inferno by Dan Brown. And many other like Preeti Shenoy, Akansh Malik, Durjoy Dutta.
How much time do you dedicate to writing on a daily basis?
I am an engineering student and a social worker so it is really tough to write everyday. Whenever she de-motivates me I start penning down my feelings; Just Kidding 😉
I don’t know the answer of this question, Really!!!
What words of wisdom would you like to give to aspiring writers?
I don’t want to give a long speech but wanna give you a suggestion, if you are really passionate towards your dreams then I think no one does that task better than you.
And at last I want to say “Being Passionate and Transformed the world”
