Q1. Introduce Yourself.
I’m a doctor by profession and a writer by default. I’ve a bad habit of eavesdropping, a penchant for looking into others’ lives, an interest in picking heart-touching stories from here and there, and a compulsive urge to write them—sometimes in Hindi and sometimes in English, sometimes in short-stories and the other times in the form of novels, poems and film scripts. I believe in telling stories irrespective of it being good or bad which I leave for the readers to decide.
Q2. When did you realize that you are born to write?
Like anybody else, I too had a crush for a girl during my schooling. And as usual, I too couldn’t express my feelings for her. After passing out my twelfth I got admitted in the medical college. Far away from her, I started to miss her direly. Finding no way out for my feelings for her, I started to write my thoughts, revolving around my one-sided love, into a diary. And one day my roommate stumbled upon it and exclaimed, “Oh, I have writer in my room!” That was the day when my friend let me realize that I can write.
Q3. Where did you learn about crush 2?
My book Aquarium has been published by Authors’ Ink Publications, Rohtak. Later, I contributed in the poetry anthology Melody of Life published by them. So naturally I came to know about this also from their Facebook postings.
Q4. How did you come out with your story?
Well, the idea of writing this story arose not to scandalize or to sensationalize the mistake normally we the boys and the girls both make during our youth period—premarital sex, leaving us repenting for whole of our life. But when we become parents, we’re scared even to think of the same; luring of our children by someone into premarital sex on the pretext of love behind the screen of trust. And then we realize how bad we’d done to someone under the garb of love. Feeling of that guilt betraying someone’s trust continues to simmer within us compelling us to apologize before that person we had hurt that time. And it’s your luck to get such a chance in your life depending upon the will of the existence.
Q5. What is your story all about? Brief us.
See, I think, and I not only think but am confident to say that every writer, either a male or female, has something his or her own in their writings. And I don’t hesitate to admit that this story is my own story when I had a chance-meeting with the girl—a fifty plus women at present, in a seminar with whom I got romantically involved during my medical college days. Rest you can read in the story.
Q6. What are your future plans?
I would like to write and entertain people through my novels and short stories. I have two film scripts with me, namely—A Jammed Lift and Barsaat Ki Vo Raat; both hair-raising thrillers duly copyright and I’m searching film-producers for them. However I’m getting encouraging response for them but nothing is confirmed till now.
Q7. How was your experience working with us?
It has been a wonderful journey with Authors’ Ink Publications till date and my next novel Song of A Flying Sparrow is also coming from the same publishing house. I can say that I like your genuine professionalism and flexibility towards the writers which is seldom seen in publishing industry. All the best!
