When did you first start writing?
It was ten years back after I won an essay competition from the World Environment Day. I first published a book officially on lulu.com
What's the story behind your latest book?
This book is a five year research, back in 2008, I could not speak properly to the people about the society. I added lots of entertainments to make the readers enjoyable...Though there are realistic elements, I did not want my readers to be bored....
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean a lot to me...I like to make some of my fans as friends because look, I don't like people who are arrogant and too much egoistic. Therefore I don't like fans who will irritate me but I can handle it in a cool manner.
What are you working on next?
It's about chefs and it also has a social message similar to 'fox and the crow' meets 'ratatouille'. Though I tried to make it a bit different therefore it's a comedy of errors with some twists. I don't want to reveal it more..See it in wattpad...'OLIVE OIL'
Who are your favorite authors?
off course, J.K.Rowling, Roald Dahl, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Emily Bronte
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
playing caroms, watching movies, study and hanging around with friends....I think, there is life and life everywhere
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
yup, a superhero but not really original. I came to know the word 'originality' during a comment on a blog. As I understood what people wanted, I wrote about the social issues happening all over the world. I just keep the story in mind and spread it while sharing to a friend..
