Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It was my intense desire to make people know about my out of the box thinking and the best tool for that was to publish my views and ideas in a book form. Even though part of my out of the box thoughts were published in the Journal of American Geriatric society in 2010 the article was very abridged and with very limited exposure.(Is there an alternative process to aging and death?.JAGS. Jan. 2010,vol.58,No.1,P.187) These limitations in size and exposure were over come by publishing the book through smash words. Now it reaches not only medical men but also to ordinary people on the street.When it is a book I could discuss the ideas and thoughts extensively without the regulations and limitations of a journal. All these I could achieve in a paperless, universally accessible and environment friendly way through Smashwords. These are the strong ways to success. Usually authors are happy if many people buy the book and read them. But my success and happiness depend on the attitude of the readers and the scientific community towards the ideas I have floated.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Joy for writing is the feeling that what ever I have written is going to help mankind tomorrow or day after tomorrow. When some body enjoys reading the book I get a sense of satisfaction or pleasure out of it, like the professional satisfaction I derive when a patient is cured of his / her disease. Besides this I derive happiness when my dreams are shared with others. Even though I do not have the technology to do what ever I have envisaged, I still feel that some body else will do it in a future date and avoid the great tragedies of mankind - the senility, cancer and death. I feel that some amount of imagination is essential to give directions for research and to acquire new knowledge. I enjoy mixing imagination with reasoning. Writing for me also means expression of my new ideas. Ideas are like seedlings in a nursery. They have to be transplanted from the nursery to a better locations. My writing is a tool for this type of transplantation of the idea to another mind. Besides this I do get happiness in sharing my interesting real life experience as in 'Bewitching BHU'. .

There is a misconception that every living organism has to die and disintegrate one day or other.Adam & Eve from the mythology of Jews,Christians & Islam were immortal and became mortal only on eating the forbidden fruit. According to Hindu mythology immortality is possible if you drink 'amrith', the holy nectar extracted by churning the milky ocean. The gods and goddesses were mortals like human before drinking the 'amrith'. Even in this 21st century millions of Hindus assemble at the four site where 'amrith' was spilled over and take bath in the holy river to become healthy and immortal (kumba mela). Change from mortal to immortal is a real possibility. Both books ,- the "Eye doctor out of the box"& "Why Cancer"- describe and discuss ways to immortality by churning the vast ocean of genes!
