When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
I just remember writing from my childhood. So I guess, I was always writing. Yes, to write a book I decided 4 years back.
Tell me something about your first book.
My first book is all about sudden chances that life throws at you. It’s about discovering a hidden talent by fluke. It’s about getting inspired and following your dreams.
What really inspired you to write this story?
Writing I guess is an addiction. At least it is for me.
It’s like playing, running, swimming or gambling or taking drugs. Just kidding. But in a good way, it gives me a all time high. Writing in itself for me is inspiration. I get inspired through writing. Though the other way round happens sometimes. I feel inspired about something then write about it. But it is almost always the previous.
How was your overall experience of becoming a published author.
My experience was pretty smooth.
Do you think in the age of digitalisation the physical books are losing their importance over kindle ?
The pleasure of reading a real book, nobody can take it away from the people. Personally I feel real books were there for a long time and they will for a long time to come. Though Kindle happens a lot, real books are real.
They are a part of real people who want a real experience. It will take a long,long time for the digital books to supersede the real ones.
What do you think about the future of Indian writing ?
Indian writing is happening big time. It’s the time of Renaissance for Indian publishing industry and for Indian writers. A great time that will lead to a great future .
Tell us about your upcoming ventures.
I am working on my fourth book. Doing a bit of study and also I am renewing my sketching abilities. Planning to compile into a book
