To me, writ­ing is like a dream. Each time, I sit to write any­thing, I make it a point that it’s a sweet one. I write for the sheer joy of it. I write be­cause I en­joy it and that too, since child­hood days. Back then, I weaved sto­ries, wrote them and kept to my­self. Yes. I also used to con­trib­ute to the school mag­a­zine.

Not with any in­ten­tion of get­ting pub­lished, but just for the cre­ative sat­is­fac­tion I would de­rive from it. There was a gap of four months be­tween the end of my MBA course and the first job. One day, I lit­er­ally locked my­self in my room and be­gan writ­ing.

They loved it and said it struck a chord! It took me some more time to de­cide that I should now be­come a pub­lished au­thor. Then, I be­gan ap­proach­ing pub­lish­ers and my first book ‘Once Again… With Love!’ was out. That was year 2015. My sec­ond book,
