I have been writing since I was a child. For me, writing is as essential as air.
You started with blogs. How the transition from blogging to fiction?
It happened gradually. From blogging I took to writing in newspapers, then in magazines. As my blog became popular, I was asked to write a book.

By far my best work, it delves into the will versus
destiny debate how much of our decisions are in ourown hands.

My youngest reader is 14,my oldest 82. I’d say mostlybetween 18 to 35.

Everywhere. I draw thegreatest inspiration from
my dad. Only this morning I wrote 15 story ideas.
Your interests vary widely, from portraits and music to
yoga. How do you strike a balance?
Balance comes naturally to ustrated journaling.
How do these interests translate into your writing?
Various interests come out in various books. In my new book, the female

Where do you stand on the whole content vs
marketing debate in writing these days?
While content is important, marketing and promotions
must have focus too.What do you think of publishing in India?
It’s a great time to be a writer in India since we don’t just compete with
other writers but with other interesting content and mediums.
