The Literature Times: Welcome to The Literature Times, author. Congratulations on the release of your book. What responses are you getting from your readers? Please share your experience with this book.

Author: Thank you so much. It indeed feels surreal to call myself an Author of a book released nationally and internationally. Dreams often meet reality when the path is truthfully guided. The readers find this piece of work immensely inspiring and a source of strength in tempestuous phases. Usually stories are fiction or non-fiction based but my book “The Miraculous Escape” is a personal journey in a poetic format which makes it all the more stimulating and enchanting. Also when you believe in yourself the world believes in you. Being an Author to this wonderful piece I feel that no matter what we achieve or aspire to be or how much famous/powerful we become, the grundnorm still remains that how much excited we are about each and every moment of our life because of our work and people around us. 

The Literature Times: What encourages you to become an Author?

Author: I think the Universe has its own exquisite and astonishing ways of rewarding us with something we truly deserve. “Sometimes the road of life takes an unexpected turn and we have no choice but to follow it, only to end up in the place we are supposed to be”. This dictum stands true in  my regard. Professionally I am an Advocate, I have been passionate about writing since my High School days but “The Miraculous Escape” could come into being only because a “Heavenly Messenger” of God named Dr Janki Nandan Agarwal stepped in our life and infused new life into my lifelines i.e. MY PARENTS. Ofcourse this book was a surprise for him too but had he not been there or done the impossible, this book wouldn’t have ever come into being. Furthermore, I also owe credit of this to my mother as she encouraged to come up with masterpiece and make it an inspiration for the world. Furthermore, I feel one must give enough energy to his/her dreams once in a lifetime as we give to our fears and allow the Universe to unfurl its magic. In other words, I would like to tell my readers that, “Whenever you do any work in life, whenever you do any work, do it in such a way that the work in itself is a pride to have been accomplished by you.”.

The Literature Times: What are your favorite topics of writing? Please tell us something about your interest areas in the literature.

Author: When it comes to writing I m very sensitive and emotional. I often choose contemporary topics related to my personal and professional life or the world in general.

The Literature Times: We were hoping you could tell us about some of those writers who had inspired you and whom you follow!

Author: Ummmm…in my early days I have read a lot of Robert Frost, William Wordsworth and Shakespeare. “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost still remains my favourite.

The Literature Times: The titles seem different and catchy; how you decided it? Please let us know the story behind it.

Author: All the titles in my book aren’t merely titles; they’re incidents which I further refined and expanded with the narrative/tale associated with or behind it. So I jotted down all the incidents that I wanted to inculcate in my book and thereafter decided the titles as per the context.

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

Author: As I said, I have been a writer since my High School days, my writing was always appreciated by my faculties and it was a part of my school’s annual magazine “Expressions”.

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

Author: Being a lawyer professionally, I have always kept writing as my passion and as I said life has its own varied ways of surprising us, I m sure the Universe will direct my ways when something new is about to come up for my readers. For now, I am overwhelmed with the appreciation and love that readers from all over the world have given me, their love and support shall keep me going.

The Literature Times: Are there any other books being worked by you? Please let us know about your future projects.

Author: The Universe will direct my ways when it needs to come. God’s plan shall always supercede my dreams.

The Literature Times: 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: Ofcourse, writing today has come more contemporary and more simpler. Students in schools are being encouraged to write more often to brush up their writing skills, and more so people from different branches and professions have started enjoying writing. The generation today has trained itself into expressing maximum emotions with minimal use of words, short poetry has started picking up pace with time. Change is obviously constant so I feel this change is positive and it shall definitely go a long way in encouraging the future generation to express their struggles and achievements, making them an inspiration for the world someday. Also I want my readers to remember that, “If you cannot run ahead of others in life, dare to run in a completely new direction with faith that one day the world will follow you”.

The Literature Times: How easy/ difficult it was for you to publish your book? What message would you like to give to budding authors?

Author: I think when something is done with pure intentions, Universe tries its best to make it happen. Something like this happened with me. I wrote this book with pure intentions and cosmos conspired it in every possible way to make me meet a suitable publishing team, which could give wings to my work to fly. I shall forever be grateful to my project manager Mr Pavan and the entire team at  the publishing house who supported me in every possible way and designed this beautiful book “The Miraculous Escape”.

To the budding authors I’d like to say that, writing is not just inking of emotions, its way more than that. Keep writing, never be discouraged, always believe that for you it might be just inking to emotions on paper to the reader it may be a source of hope, a light amist the dark night. I want them to always remember that life in itself is the biggest gift and treat it as such. Whatever be the situation in life, be it good, bad, sometimes dark, sometimes bright, respect everything and keep grace in life towards every human being.
