The Literature Times: Author, welcome to The Literature Times. Congratulations on the publication of your book! What feedback do you get from your readers? Please share your thoughts on this book.

Author:  Thanks a lot. It’s only the starting. To be quite honest, I didn’t anticipate such feedback, and the responses I’m getting are great. If you ask me what I think about the book, I would say that everyone should read it at least once, especially  the children. This is not an ordinary book it will put you in the shoes of bravest children of India, the children who saved others at the risk of their own lives.

The Literature Times: What motivates you to become a writer?

Author:  You might laugh, but my writing career actually began as a result of a serious accident. But for now, it’s my salvation. It is my soul savior. It makes me whole, it completes me. Every time I see something that everyone should know, I feel compelled to write about it.

My favourite.

The Literature Times: What are your favourite writing topics? Please tell us a little bit about your literary interests.

Author: Inspirational, spiritual, love, and romance.

Any subject that resonates with me and is worthwhile of attention becomes my  favourite. The portrayal of the  unsaid and overlooked piques my attention.

The Literature Times: We were hoping you might tell us about some of the authors that have influenced you and who you read!

 Author: James Clear’s “ Atomic Habits” was a book I recently read and enjoyed. I appreciate Munshi Prem Chand and Robert Browning.

I do, however, have a kind heart and welcoming eyes for any aspiring writer with a fascinating subject.

The simplicity of Mahatma Gandhi ji’s “My Experience of Truth” really struck a chord with me. I have a great deal of respect for writers who express their ideas without experimenting with difficult vocabulary and sentence structures.

The Literature Times: The title is unique and appealing; how did you come up with them? Please tell us the story behind

Author: I got a chance to save three kids in different situations in my childhood, so ,I am extremely familiar with what it takes to save someone at the cost of risk of one’s own life. I generally admire bravery and boldness, and these children’s stories always give me chills, so I thought it would be a good idea to compile all of these tales into one place and share them with the younger generation so they would understand what bravery is.

The accounts of few National Bravery Award winners were featured in the last chapter of my first book “Never Say Never,” .When I was reading that book for editing purpose Something struck me that my next book is going to be a compilation of their tales. To me those children are the warriors who will always be immortal even after they leave this earth.

That’s why ,I named the book as “Immortal Warriors”.

The Literature Times: What are your achievements so far? Tell us something about your writing career.

Author:- It is only the starting. To be completely honest, I didn’t anticipate such a response. It’s absolutely wonderful.I’m motivated to keep writing until my dying breath.It completes me in some way. I’m grateful to God for my success.

The Literature Times: What is your current goal in writing a career? How do you see your future in writing?

Author: To continue writing until I die.

I believe in writing honestly without thinking about the results. However, I am confident that my books will be well received.

The Literature Times: Do you have any other novels in the works? Please keep us updated on your future endeavours.

Author: Right now I have started a novel ”The Making of Mahatma”… it might be  a grand success.I expect to see it on big screen.Amen.

The Literature Times: How do you view Indian writing in the twenty-first century? What changes do you see in today’s writing style? Do you feel it has changed over time?

Author: I believe that subjects for authors are diverse. They have no qualms about experimenting with both language and structure.

 Literature Times: How simple/difficult was it for you to publish your book? What message do you want to send to aspiring authors?

Author: As I started from zero, I had to do lots of research regarding publication process, I knew nothing, I just send few random pages  to various publication houses.Now I smile when I recall  that I didn’t know what a book- proposal is, but with God’s grace , help of Google and YouTube things became clear and  smooth. Now this was my second book. Therefore I was relaxed.Things went smoothly.

I found the team of Astitva publication very supportive.

I just want to say to the aspiring authors :-

“If you have  writing skills in you then don’t delay,don’t think much, just go for it. Excuses are many but the truth is only one that when you start to follow your instincts honestly, help comes.”
