HOW DID RAJVEER SIGH CONCEIVE "DESTINED LIVES"?
2010, I have scrapped a long story, written by me, right at the climax. I didn’t write the climax and since I used to share it on a forum as and when a new chapter gets completed, all those who were then following that story felt very disappointed. For the next couple of years they kept sending mails urging me to write the climax but I couldn’t. The characters in the story had potential to be part of a novel. In comparison to the story the characters were strong and very much matured and hence I handpicked them and began writing this novel called ‘Destined Lives – Journey till the Start’.
As I proceeded with the writing, I needed to fine tune the characters, especially the protagonist. Since I am very fond of Punjabi culture I have
started reading all Punjabi folk love stories – Heer Ranjha, Sohni Mahiwal, and Sassi Pannu – in the search of certain characteristics I wasn’t sure of myself but when I read about Sassi I found what I was looking for and that’s how the protagonist got her name ‘Sassi’ in the novel.
A lot of research went in to write the climax, again. I can still recall it took me 4 months just to perfect the climax and in the process I have learnt a lot.
Winters are the backdrop and hence one can sense a grayish feel while reading it. Novel covers Delhi, Darjeeling and Sikkim primarily.
