Thank you for giving me some time to ask you some questions.
1. Please tell us from where you belong? Please tell something about your childhood and career?
Belongs to Haryana. And there is nothing so fancy to talk about my childhood and career. It was good and taught me a lot.
2. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? Was it your dream?
It was not dream. It just become so. I started writing when I was in 8th standard. And that day onwards I keep on writing what I feel and here I am in front of you.
Time cannot be calculated as such. If it goes smoothly it keep on going. Otherwise on daily basis, I keep myself busy reading books and writing poems.
4. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I like infact love to write instant situational write ups on my observation. You need to have a vision for it.
5. What inspired you to write your first book?
I think my being alone. The experiences I had from being myself, I think that made me to keep moving my pen.
6.If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I love reading Munshi Prem Chand’s writing and also admire Mr. Ruskin Bond for his flawless writing.
7. Can you share a little of your current work with us?
I would love to tell if it is so. But, it keep on changing. I don’t stick to the things for long. Change is must and I do in my writing too.
8.Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
As I already mentioned I have read a lot of Munshi Prem Chand ji. And the best part is I am never tired of reading his writing. I think that made his work everlasting.
9. Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?
Travelling as a hobby I would love to go for. But for things related to publication I avoid to do so, may be I don’t have that much patience to do so.
10. From where you get idea for writing books?
Ideas come when you are alone. I get into the things and observe them as if I am a part of it.
11. So are you working on another book? How do you develop your plots and characters?
Yes, I am on track. After these two, A girl in love with a beggar and My blind father, one more this time short stories under print. Plots come into play what I vision and character’s name are from reality most of times, to whom I met somehow somewhere suddenly or deliberately.
12. What is the biggest surprise that you experienced after becoming a writer?
I found myself growing daily. I can experience it by my own.
13. Writing can change the society. So what aspect of the society you want to change through your writings?
Anywhere you go, you will find all sort of people everywhere. And as I said change is needed. Perfectness is nowhere and that’s the good side of it. It should not be, because it stop your growth.
14. Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven’t included?
Hahaha, NO why. Nothing like that. I am absolutely fine with this.
15. Do you have any advice for other writers?
Advice… Ahhh. It’s a big job. Writing is a magic and reader should feel like something magical is happening on reading your words. That it.
16. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Yeahhh.. You people are a true inspiration and your reviews keep me on the path to write more for myself and for you. Keep on reading, admiring and loving. God bless you all.
Thanks Anuj for giving your interview to Writer’s destination!
