When and why did you begin writing? I have been writing a personal diary since I was 16 and writing has always been a way of expression for me. Experience and knowledge sharing is an act of responsibility and therefore I chose to show it through my writings as well.
When did you first consider yourself a writer? It’s too early to tag myself as a ‘Writer’ as I just express out of passion and I think I still have to go a long way through a more responsible and responsive writing consistency and may be then, I would humbly acknowledge myself with that role too.
What inspired you to write your first book? Writing is a way of expression for me like any other passion. Like movies, our life also has many key people behind the scenes, who remain unacknowledged in the books of our life. They are often part of secret talks with close friends. I have always felt this is not a right recognition or respect they deserve. This was my effort to honor my past, act honest and show respect to the ones I loved.
How did you come up with the title? Love is a mystery which can transform lives and induce optimism in everyone. My writing is centered at people, their behavior and relationship as an outcome. In general, everything evolves out of love and diminishes because of love. The title “The Ones I Loved” summarized beautifully what I felt in nutshell without any hard feelings and therefore this title.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Yes, the story sensitizes on the essence to value people and relationships and honor our past with a justified perspective.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? Yes, the experiences are based on events in my life and carries honest and bold confessions.
What books have most influenced your life most? Unfortunately, I haven’t read many books other than the ones which were a part of my academic curriculum; however I observe and read instances, behavior & outcomes which have all touched my life in some or the other way.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? No writer in specific but every individual who has the courage to express realistically.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book? Nothing, I expressed what and how I wanted to however I have got multiple reviews that they wanted more to read. I take it as a compliment in an era where time is utmost precious and wisely spent by everyone, and there are people who judiciously want to spend in on more.
What was the hardest part of writing your book? It’s worthwhile mentioning 2 things – the decision of being honest in confessing reality and difficulty to express my thought (some feelings especially) in words and further a challenge to create a closest perception of the thought, which needed multiple proof readings.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? Yes, I learnt the way to make more than thousand friends in no time – just by sharing my experience and believing they would read wisely between my lines. I was so very correct.
Do you have any advice for other writers? I feel ‘Being yourself’ helps.
