The LiteratureTimes: Welcome to The LiteratureTimes, author. Congratulations on the release of your book. What responses are you getting from your readers? Please share your experience with this book.
Author: The initial response is very encouraging. The readers seem to have been impressed with the subject which they can relate to and find very relevant to their personal lives. One of the initial feedbacks mentioned “Good Work” which is very heartening. The readers seem to be very excited about the topic and are eager to get their copies. Am hopeful that the book will do well.
The LiteratureTimes: What encourages you to become an Author?
Author: The reason I write is to share whatever I have learned from various experiences gained through lot of hard work. I consider myself fortunate and blessed to have got whatever success I have achieved in my life. No doubt this required lot of hard work on my part but the learnings acquired through acquintances with several wise people at various stages in my life had a major influence on the results I achieved in life. I consider it my responsibility to share these learnings with others who can benefit from them and get great satisfaction in doing so.
The LiteratureTimes: What are your favorite topics of writing? Please tell us something about your interest areas in the literature.
Author: I enjoy writing about Mind Power, Power of Infinite Intelligence, Achieving Success, Strategy, Happiness, Mindfulness, Short stories on wisdom etc. I would also want to write a book on Human Resource Management for MBA students from a practioner’s perspective.
The LiteratureTimes: We were hoping you could tell us about some of those writers who had inspired you and whom you follow!
Author: My most favourite authors have been Robert Schuler, Napoleon Hill, Joseph Murphy, Deepak Chopra, Priya Kumar and I have been greatly inspired by their work.
The LiteratureTimes: The titles seem different and catchy; how you decided it? Please let us know the story behind it.
Author: I think everybody wants to achieve financial success in life but not everybody has access to the wisdom required to do so. I wanted to write on this topic in order to share my learnings about financial wisdom and the significant role it plays in one becoming rich. I wanted to keep the topic very genuine and something that everybody could easily relate to. That’s how I coined this topic.
The LiteratureTimes: What are your achievements so far? Tell us something about your writing career.
Author: I am an HR professional with 25 years’ experience in the field of HR. Writing is more of a hobby and I am yet to make big inroads in this space. With just three books (Infinite Intelligence, The Highest Wisdom and You Can Become Rich) to my credit, I am still learning the craft of writing and wish to create some bestsellers in future. If my writing can bring about even a small positive difference in the lives of some people, I would consider myself blessed and fortunate.
The LiteratureTimes: What is your current goal in writing as a career? How do you see your future in writing?
Author: My only objective in writing is to share my knowledge with others who aspire to grow in every aspect of their lives. If my writing makes a positive difference to even a few of my readers, I would consider myself successful in this arena.
The LiteratureTimes: Are there any other books being worked by you? Please let us know about your future projects.
Author: Yes, there are a couple of interesting subjects that I wish to write on and would be working on them as time permits. My readers would come to know about them gradually over time.
The LiteratureTimes: How you see Indian writing in the 21st century? What changes do you see in the modern way of writing? Do you feel it has been changed by the time?
Author: I don’t think too much has changed in the field of writing over the years but definitely feel the need for this to happen. Today readers do not have the time and patience to read books which are very big. In this fast paced world, even writing needs to get concise and the story needs to be communicated in much lesser time. I think speed and agility is the need of current times and writing needs to adapt to it.
The LiteratureTimes: How easy/ difficult it was for you to publish your book? What message would you like to give to budding authors?
Author: Writing on any subject is always time consuming and requires lot of efforts. One can do this only if they enjoy writing. Same was the case with me while writing this book and publishing the same. My message to budding authors is that they should not worry about the quality of their work initially. If they have knowledge about a particular subject and enjoy writing about the same, then they should definitely do so. Writing should be a hobby, a passion, something that they enjoy doing. Only then can they go about achieving their writing goals. If they sustain this habit, they will see the quality of their writing improving over time.
