Three things people don’t know about you?

The first thing people don't know about me is that I am a quiet guy who prefers talking less and listening more. The 2nd thing that some might assume about me is that I am a very disciplined guy in my life but I can be very lazy too. Last thing that no one knows is that I am very choosy about things and selective in my choices.

What’s your greatest fear?

My greatest fear is failure in something after I have put in a lot of effort and hard work into it.

What is your greatest achievement?

I think my greatest achievement is by finally becoming a writer with my first book being published.

High point of your life?

The highest point of my life is the time I spend with my friends. It helps me forget the stress of the world and just enjoy life as is.

Low point of your life

My lowest point was when I had failed my first and only engineering exam and I had the realization that I was doing a course that I didn't want to get into from the beginning.

Which living person do you most admire?

I admire my mother the most as she has been the anchor of our family after my father's passing away.

Who is your favorite fictional hero?

Superman is my favorite hero as he not only instills positivity but he also shows how one of the strongest superheroes can also be gentle and human.

Who is your favorite fictional villain?

Joker is my favourite villain as he is unpredictable, doesn't really care how many people he hurts and although it does not look like he plans a lot, he is smart enough to plan big schemes.

Who are your favorite authors?

My favorite authors are Dan Brown, Amish Tripathi and Robin Cook. They bring uniqueness in their stories and fictional genre they write on.

Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, The Da Vinci Code, Robin Cook's Marker and The Durable Slum are my favorite books of all time.

Is there a book you love to reread?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of the books that I can keep re-reading. I have read it 3 times already.

Shawshank Redemption, Fight Club, The Matrix, Inception, Interstellar and Death Race are my favorite movies of all time.

One Superpower you wish you had?

I wish that I could teleport as it would help cut down on my travel time.

Your epitaph would read? /Last line in your biography would be?

A man who brought a smile to everyone who knew him

If you had a time machine to take you back to any country and any time period, where would you choose to be for your childhood, adolosent , adult life and silver years?

I think I would still prefer to relive the life that I have cause I know how it has gone but I would definitely use the time machine to get a glimpse of my later years.

If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

I would want to be able to fly a plane as I can't do so currently due to poor eyesight.

Which book you wish you had written ?

I wish I could have written Dan Brown's Lost Symbol as I feel the story could have become a bit better and didn't connect the dots really well.

When and where do you write ?

I usually write on my laptop sitting in the hall room of the house.

Silence or music?

I prefer silence as it gives me peace and it helps me explore my thoughts.

One phrase that you use most often?

Honesty is the best policy

Do you have a writing ritual / superstition?

I usually write a skeletal story wherein I use pointers to write the directions of my plot. It helps me understand how I can reach from one point to another and I could add something else in between as I see fit.

Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?

Don't ever think that your idea is dumb or that it might not find the right audience. Be confident in your writing and pen out your story. You can always take your closed ones perspective on the story but take it as a piece of advise or constructive criticism.

I am the guy who will quietly stand in a corner and listen to others tell their stories. I prefer others tell their stories about their lives than rather talk about mine as I feel I am slightly boring. I have been a part of 3 different media sectors - Journalism, Advertising and now in Public Relations. Thereby, I have been trained and I am honing my creative skills to create new stories.
