I like to explore everything, all the aspects and every part of this world. I love to travel, love sports, music, and love to be a good listener of all the positive vibes surrounded. I love to spend my time with new peoples, and by my motivational, selfless words, thoughts, and acts, I love to help and support every individual around the corner and motivate them during their tough times.
And the best part, whatever amount I earn through my writing world, I spent them for all the Social cause and selfless help!
That’s really great; please tell us something about your journey of becoming an author. When you actually started writing and how was the circumstance? Did any person or situation influenced you to write your debut book or was it your childhood hobby of writing?
Your Answer: You know, I always wanted to do something for the society, something for the mankind and for the humanity, along with my regular daily professional and personal life. Such thoughts were already growing deep in my heart from many years, actually since my college days!
Frankly, I never had any writing experiences and I have never thought to become an Author or writing a Novel before. But after seeing tremendous ups and downs within the family and surroundings, I then strongly decided to help all the needy and everyone.
It started with my few offline counselling sessions to my relatives and few of my friends to help them during their tough time which they applauded and appreciated.
Eventually, it then turned to write down those counselling sessions into a stories as a use case for many needy around, and that’s where Author/Writer within me was born!
I then started articulating and expanding my horizon on various aspects in writing world viz. Novels, short stories, Dramas, Stage plays, Quotes, Blogs and many others, that too on four different languages – English, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati.
And today, with Almighty’s wish and direction, I proudly became an Author, Speaker, Anchor and Counselor towards the Social Selfless causes. I am feeling lucky and blessed to receive such a great gift from the Almighty!
Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly? Be descriptive please so that our visitors know about you little more.
Your Answer: There is no doubt, emotions are always associated with a great Writer/Author and they strongly shape everyone’s life! My feeling is, if someone has strong desires, which ticking deep in their heart constantly to do something for the others, for this society, then they can surely become a Writer, where they too then start visualize and moreover, feel those all the emotions to convey their best message to all the readers, to this entire world!
How do you come up with the titles to your books?
Your Answer: Sometimes, it becomes easy to pick up a good title for my work but then few times, it’s challenging though! Yeah, I too struggle giving a good title for my work, my Novel! But with the experience, the practice I follow is, I start with a first title of the work and while plotting the entire story and introducing the characters, I come across few more exciting titles, which I keep adding in the list and finally, I select one best out of few numbers for my related work/Novel!
But believe me, along with your book title, your actual story and a message also plays a major role!
What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?
Your Answer: According to me, the most important aspect is the message you want to convey to all the readers through your Novel. Eventually, every reader should learn and should get some insights for living their life through your Novel. For me, language should never become a barrier unless, your Novel displays the best message! And thus, to achieve the best message, your entire story/plot and its architecture adds another importance. Reader should get connect with your emotions and your deep senses while reading your masterpiece!
What comes first, the plot or characters? How do you develop your plot and characters?
For me, it comes the entire plot first! I visualize the entire story back of my mind and architect the entire story on few pages, where I try to add all the twists and turns and eventually the final outcome and best Motivational/Inspiring message for the reader! My most of the Novel’s story centric towards motivation and Inspiration, which enlightens readers from within!
Once I finalize the entire plot then I break the entire story into different chapters and different sections and at this time, I also introduces all the required characters. Ofcourse, main characters have already been articulate during the plot but then all the side characters, story characters, I try to fill along with outlining all the chapters! At this stage, I decide the characters behaviour, their emotions, their body language and their actual identity!

Please tell the reader something about your book. What is your message to those readers who have still not read the book. Why they should pick it up for reading?
Your Answer: Everyone is in some race to achieve everything in their life and eventually, they forget to live and feel real happiness and inner satisfaction. Unavoidable failures and its associated pains are usual daily part of everyone’s life, especially for the young ones in the society. Hardly few of them gets proper direction, positive path and ray of hope to live their life further, while rest just doesn’t find and they remain depressed and demotivated all the time where sometimes, they lose their faith in their well-wishers, on god and always, feel alone which leads them to unimaginable wrong step.

Finally, this Novel’s real-life story will lead those all the individual towards self-motivation and will help them attain ultimate inner happiness by overcoming their depression/demotivation due to their failures. Youth can achieve everything with their true efforts, dedication and self-belief during their personal as well as professional life.
While, the fact is, youth need not have to hide because of their failures. They need not have to feel ashamed for themselves, for their family and this society. And they should never let their morals and self-confidence down in any circumstances. Remember, failure is temporary and that is the first step to get success in life. Life is very beautiful, and everyone must live and love every moment, every part and every individual of it. There is nothing wrong to be good with everyone and to feel positive in every situation. There is nothing to lose for feeling always positive and happy about every moment in life.
Always keep trust on this saying:
“Life lived in the idealism that feels worthless often becomes an idol for someone’s life.”
So, that’s it! This show must go on!
