1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

I hail from a big joint family, where I am the tiny tot being the last kid. I always ventured into my own interests and hobbies. Graduating as a Mechanical Engineer, I pursued Management Studies.

Aside from that, I love reading books, writing new blogs, poems looking upon everything I look to understand. I am quite interested in reading newspapers and knowing current affairs and general knowledge.

I am also passionate about watching and commenting about sports, particularly cricket and tennis. I started to realize that I have a vivid memory and decent vocabulary to write upon and explore new horizons.

 

2. When did you decide you wanted to be a writer?

Being an avid reader of books and novels alike, I realized that I wanted to express my thoughts and ideas to people around. I used to write short stories in primary class and also have written in ‘The Young World’.

Later, I stopped writing and started reading more, learning more and relating realities with imaginations. Initially, I was hesitant to deliver blogs and content writing because I was not confident of my writings.

As I explored across various blogs in social media, I imbibed the belief and courage to showcase my works to the outside world.

 

3. Is it a financially stable career?

Considering this job as a part-time, I don’t consider it to be financially sound. Moreover, this work doesn’t provide recognition and satisfaction to us until we distinguish ourselves and carve our own identity.

 

4. Who is your favorite writer and why?

My favorite writer is J.K.Rowling. I grew up watching and reading her works. She made us believe that no imagination can go wrong as long as we are sure of what we are doing. Stricken against all odds, she proved that we can always transform our dreams into realities as long as we keep dreaming and visualize them. 

 

5. Where does your inspiration lie?

Frankly speaking, I don’t have anywhere to find inspiration. The inspiration to work and excel in our respective fields has to come within us. No one or anything in the world can motivate us to become better humans than ourselves.

 

6. What does your typical day look like?

As far as work is concerned, every day is a good day as long as we are in control of it with a proper work-life-balance. Each day should make us to turn into a new leaf, budding out to become optimistic, confident and motivated individuals.

 

7. What piece of advice would you like to give to future aspiring writers?

People aspiring to write must always be open and confident to experiment with their own ideas and thoughts, even though some part of their mind maybe hesitant.

Young writers must also be intuitive and trust their gut feelings. The world around us is never short of thought processes, attitudes and perceptions that keep changing time to time. Writers must learn to be adaptable towards ideas that may become obsolescent in future.

“IT IS OUR CHOICES THAT SHOW US WHAT WE TRULY ARE FAR MORE THAN OUR ABILITIES”


8. Which is your favorite book and why?

I generally look for books that lead me into an imaginative world and run through mind. During school days, I used to read Enid Blyton books, which made me venture into my own adventures likewise.

Later, I started reading books that drove me into a different perspective which critiqued my level of knowledge and thoughts. My favorite book is “A Brief History of Time” by Stephen Hawking.
