His Notable Works:
Being an author is an uphill task. What is the most tiresome and complex task you went through while publishing for the first time?
There are many such, but the most complex one was the editing part. I still remember I was having my exams and there was almost no time for me to edit but still somehow I managed.
Is there any kind of writing which you despise?
When did you decide that you want to write? One of the first novels that you read which inspired you to write ?
I love imagination. When I was child I used to hear fairy tales from my grandparents and that was the inspiration. I too wanted to be a ‘STORYTELLER’. But in due course of time everything disappeared. But when destiny played a cruel role, an incident which I had never expected finally I decided to pen down my story.
And yeah the first novel I read was CB’s Five Point Someone. I loved the book very much as being an engineering student I can relate to it.
When did the story weave itself in your mind? Any specific incidents?
Many people think that Life of Authors is exciting and rewarding (after the release of Movie Baghban). What are your views ?
What is the most content feeling you have ever felt and when?
Any word of advice for authors and bibliophiles out there?
