Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Well. I was born and raised in Jodhpur, popularly known as suncity. I’m a physiotherapist, state govt employee and a writer. A gold medalist in Physiotherapy and Pharmacy in Rajasthan. Apart from this, I love travelling in mountains, riding bikes and dancing. I have written two books, “Our 6.5 Years” ( 2018 ) and “Unworthy Love” (2021)
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is ‘Unworthy love’- an emotion that keeps you going. The emotional side of a man, which usually they hide, inspired me to write something related to that. Many times, this question came into my mind as to why it is so difficult for males to express themselves. Why not they just cry it out without the fear of being judged or whatever reason which holds them back and they try to remain strong with that feeling.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Haha.. yes.. it is very difficult for me to find a particular time and environment to write and either I don sit and write, I keep thinking about writing this n that but I don’t write or I just sit and start writing and I don’t stop until I’m done with what’s in my mind.. no matter how long it takes.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Many.. it is difficult to name all of them. But I want to mention ‘The notebook’ by Nicholas Sparks, ‘I too had love story’ by Ravindra Singh and ‘Subtle art of not giving a fuck’ by Mark Manson.
What are you working on now?
Right now I am working on my hindi poetries and one liners.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Social media platforms impacts people a lot. I am a instagrammer I use this social media platform to promote & post my work. Personal blog is also a great way to connect with people.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Haha.. I am still learning. I myself have a lot of things to learn about. One thing I want to share is to be consistent with your writings, it’s okay if it takes more time than you expected, there is no race here take your time and complete what has started don’t leave anything in between. Express whatever you think. whatever you wanna say to the world.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Learn all good and leave all bad.
My dad taught me this.. “Har insaan m achai aur burayi dono hoti hai, hum koi nahi hote kisi par ungali uthaane wale, bas unki achhai sikhlo unse aur burai unki unme hi chod do..” Everyone deals with their own karma & choices.
What are you reading now?
I don’t get much time for reading nowadays, because of my hectic working schedule.. but whenever I get time I read self-care books, self-love poems, or books.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Honestly speaking, right now I don’t know. My responsibility as a healthcare worker always comes first.
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?
Just my pen and my diaries
