Tell us about the idea behind the book?

Well, my mother inculcated in me the habit of learning from other peoples experiences apart from one’s own, from very early on in my life. The principle of always doing the right thing, observing the journey others have had from an objective standpoint for learning– come from the way I have been brought up, and that landed up being the genesis of the idea of penning my version of parables for adults— true accounts written analytically to help people learn about the workings of the human mind and it’s interaction with destiny, to cope better.

 How much time did it take in the process of writing?

I started the book in 2016 and finished it on the former part of 2017, so I would say less than a year, I suppose.

 What did the process of writing this book teach you?

That writing a book, like other creative pursuits, is something transcendental. If something has to be told, destiny takes control and makes you do it.

 What inspired you to write this book?

People. The more I met, the more I realised as to how each one of us is eventually a story that deserves to be told and learnt from.

A book that had an impact on you, which helped you in writing this one?

 Not one in particular, but a bit of all of the ones I have mentioned above, apart from the fables we were taught as children, the most famous one being that of the tortoise and the hare.

 Tell us about your publishing journey in 5 words.

A story all by itself!  

Your favourite part/chapter from the book? 


Tell us about your plans? Planning a new book?

 Yes, pretty much occupied with that. 

What is a literary success for you? 

 To make a difference in peoples lives. If one’s words can have a positive impact on even one life—the purpose has been served, but, the more, the merrier.

A message for all the readers.

I hope my book makes you feel like you aren’t alone on feeling what you feel, and that knowing oneself deeply and honestly–can make all the difference to one’s trajectory.
