Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Sometimes we just have to flow with the natural call appears in through the heart. Same happened to me. I was far from writing but, presently my destiny made me an author and I also write spiritual, motivational articles for the newspaper. It all started from the day when my 1st articles on ‘failure’ were published in the newspaper which encouraged me to illustrate more and more articles to bring change in the reader’s mind.
Moreover, Few fluctuations in my life ignited my insights over and over and one day I decided to harmonize my entire wisdom, insights, research on life together which unfolded my very initial book namely ‘REBORN WITHIN-the beginning of inner transformation’
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
As I conveyed the name of my very first book is ‘REBORN WITHIN -the beginning of an inner transformation’. Being honest, I was totally unknown to the name and everything about the book. I was covered with only blurred ideas and multiple what, how, when etc. Simultaneously the famous saying of Lao Tzu was dazzling in my mind ‘journey of thousands of mile begins with one step’. The major problem I had was my age. Yes, I’m 20-year-old boy spelling out spiritual and motivational content. Reading the book of a 20-year-old boy is bound to attack one’s ego. But, the problem is an infinite word. No matter what you are, where you are, it chases you like your shadow. Following the same attitude, I just kept writing and I was solely astounded that I wrote 300+ pages of the book. I wasn’t able believe in myself. In the same way, unknowingly the name even pumped in my mind.an As soon as would I touch the topic my mind would blow like the wind.
Especially, the main inspiration to write ‘REBORN WITHIN’ is the hostile atmosphere I grew up. It ignited an inner call to assist people, bring changes in their life, help them in transforming their life and encourage them to spread hands for others well being…
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I can’t say habit. But, yes!!! I write when my mind roams in a distinct world, my own created world. Whenever I dissolve myself in nature, many illuminating thoughts emerge in my mind and unknowingly I feel like writing my experience, colouring thoughts with ink and I just do that. Moreover, pin-drop silence in my loneliness is something that stimulates me to write from the bottom of my heart.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The very first book I had ordered out of my scholarship money ‘The power of your subconscious mind’ left a marvellous impression on me. The book reveals magical powers human is unknown for. Then, I’m grateful to read entire series of ‘insights of new living’ by OSHO. These books are more than words. It is something so natural, original and authentic.
What are you working on now?
I have decided to travel alone by bicycle to discover what life is and how it runs. Especially, to know to get a close glimpse into my being, find out my original being, who I am. I believe we are not part of existence, we are existence. Each sun shines within, each star blinks in you, each flower blossom in your being. Just the thing is, material world, societies-parents-teachers teaching since childhood has separated us from the naturalness of oneself in such a way that it is so challenging to teach up to own original being. But, now I want to kill such obliged teaching and give new birth to who I am according to my own experiences.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Being new in the world of ink, given question perplexed me. I think the best method I can follow is promoting the book on Instagram and Facebook etc social media platform as it seems the easiest and fastest way to reach up to the readers
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Yes! I have to say only one thing that don’t think ‘when I will be perfect then I will write’. tuning up the book is not about perfection. Instead, writing is a path to be perfect. The word ‘perfect’ is infinite. No matter how much you prepare yourself, you would not be perfect unless last breath. So, believe on yourself and keep writing. One important thing, be original while writing. Don’t try to color the content. Let it be natural. Because natural things comes from heart while artificial things come up from mind. Mind is not yours. It has been manufactured by society. But, heart is only yours. It is authentic. Just mission to it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
‘Don’t play with the content’ yes!! I wanted to do proof reading of the book to make it fresh but if I would have done it, I would have lost my essence to that book. It would not have been mine at anymore. I’m not against language barrier. For it, it is fine if you think to have PR. But, when it comes to your own style of writing, don’t give right to anyone to play with it. Be what you are.
What are you reading now?
Presently I’m reading upon one of the vital topic of human existence as well as it’s relation with human consciousness, existence which is ‘sex’. Being in a tender age I experience multiple changes in my body and mind about the same thing and simultaneously I experience societies restriction about it. I want to find out answers of my many questions about sex and it’s influences to human existence.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Along with writing, I deliver motivational, spiritual talks for the same aim to devote myself for peoples well being.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
I’ll certainly bring maturity, creativity, courage by OSHO and my one of the favorite books which is immensely close to my heart ‘the alchemist’.
