Three things people don’t know about you?

I wrote my first book at the age of 15, I am agnostic yet spiritual, I am ambidextrous

What’s your greatest fear?

I might not be able to complete the last story I'd ever start telling.

What is your greatest achievement?

Standing on the podium as the guest of honour at my school just four years after graduating. Standing there, numb and nervous as I did, and gathering the courage to tell them all to quit giving in to obstacles and just reach out for even the most absurd of their dreams and ambitions.

High point of your life?

When I held the author's copy of my first book. The high point was when I gave that copy to my mother and she gave the most serene expression as a reply.

Low point of your life

When I was 17, and was trying to pitch my first book to every publisher out there. I didn't know then what I know now - that every rejection opens a plethora of opportunities for acceptance.

Which living person do you most admire?

I look up the most to the journey, the resolve, the beliefs, the preaching, the attitude and the overall being of Mr. Shahrukh Khan. Behind the translucent veil of entertainment media, I somewhat see a kind yet lonely soul, which has worked damn hard to reach this far against all odds; but is still in pursuit of something greater than themselves.

Who is your favorite fictional hero?

Forrest Gump, from the movie with the same name.

Who is your favorite fictional villain?

Darth Vader.

Who are your favorite authors?

Jules Verne, Ayn Rand and Isaac Asimov

What are your 5 favorite books of all time?

The Fountainhead, The Godfather, Foundation, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Godaan

Is there a book you love to reread?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - it's damn funny, and probabilistically practical, which makes it funnier.

What are your 5 favorite movies of all time?

Schindler's List, Forrest Gump, Anand, Swades, Interstellar

One Superpower you wish you had?

Ability to heal others, physically and emotionally.

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

Who told stories till he became one...

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?

Would spend my adolescence in the Early Vedic Period in the Sindhu Valley, Adult Life traversing Europe during the Renaissance, and silver years in the 22nd century (for a sneak peek into the world we create ahead). I would leave my childhood as it is, since it was spent pretty well when it was.

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

The ability to understand and converse in all languages of the world.

Which book you wish you had written ?

None - A book is a writer's brainchild and treasure. Howsoever it is perceived by the readers, I cannot encroach upon someone's treasure.

When and where do you write ?

I generally write during the night. But, stories and poems can strike me anywhere and anytime; so, I am always carrying a diary and a pen (if not a mobile phone or a laptop).

Silence or music?

Love both Silence and Music.

One phrase that you use most often?

The impossible of yesterday is the science of today.

Do you have a writing ritual / superstition?

I write the first chapter of my book thrice, perhaps even going along the same plot and beginning each time, without reading the preceding one even once. I discard the first two without having a look, and build upon the third one thereon.

What’s your guilty reading pleasure?

I love reading Japanese Manga.

Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?

The only thing that you can do to be a better writer is writing more.
