The Literature Times: What encourages you to become an Author?
Fateh Bahadur Singh: it’s my situation or you may say it’s God desires. It came by chance only. After my retirement I was thinking to practice Law as I am Law graduate but due to my illness as the same I have also mentioned in my prologue that I caught by Cancer first in 2012, then in 2018 and again which I not mentioned in the Book is, right now I am again fighting with this disease So all the way through my life since my first diagnosis I thought deeply about the Life, it’s different aspects and what exactly it is? So I started my work with the reading of different Books off course religious and Spiritual in nature like Vedas, Upnishad, Geeta and so on and by imbibing their core values I started my work…So, this is how it Started….
