Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Each day is new and fresh for me. There is a ray of hope that I would do better than yesterday.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
There were three sages involved in spiritual activities through austerity. Narada, the great follower of Lord Vishnu was passing by the ashram of these sages. With great interest, the sages asked Narada one by one, when they would be able to get Mokshya.
Narada said the first sage that, he would get Mokshya after the number of years equal to the number of trees were there in that jungle. After hearing this when the sage looked the jungle and could not count the number of trees as they were in huge number, he became frustrated and stopped doing austerity.

Then Narada said the second sage that, he would get Mokshya after the number of years equal to the number of branches of the tree besides his ashram. After hearing this when the sage looked the tree and seeing the huge number of branches it had, he became frustrated and stopped doing austerity.

Then Narada said the third sage that he would get Mokshya after the number of years equal to the number of leafs of the tree besides his ashram. The third sage then thought that OK, one day definitely he would get Mokshya; then he continued his spiritual activities through austerity.

The moral of the story is that be positive, do your work, definitely one day you could succeed in life.

Samarpan, i.e. giving up all the activities unto the Supreme Soul is a book that I wish to write on the basis of strengthening the human intellect towards the reality of modern life.
