So let’s start now…….

The Spirit Mania: Most welcome to The Spirit Mania. We heartily congratulate you for being an INFLUENTIAL WOMEN OF THE YEAR 2K20. It’s really a great achievement. First thing, we would like to know about your basic info as a person, daily life, career so far and anything you would like to share about you with your readers and your well-wishers and also with us.
Answer: I am a simple software Engineer turned into a writer. After graduating from K.I.E.T, Ghaziabad, I joined in as a project manager in delhi but soon after quit it to work as a lecturer. A couple of job changes and I finally ended into writing. I’m a cheerful person who likes to make everyone around me happy. When i’m not writing, I mostly love hanging out with friends, trying new cuisines and watching movies.

The Spirit Mania: Please tell us something about your journey of becoming an author/blogger/teacher and other fields in which you are working? When you actually started your journey and how was the circumstance? Did any person or situation influenced you to become what you are today?
Answer: without any writing background it was very tough to begin in this field. Since a kid I used to write short stories but writing a book never occured to me. It was when I was preparing for civil services that I got ample of time to write and thus with the help of my brother, Sanchit, book ‘Accidentally Cupid’ was born. The book went a hit in a short time and I left everything to be a full-time writer.

The Spirit Mania: Please tell the readers something about your interest in the respective field. What is your message to those readers who are trying to do the best in your field?
Answer: I like writing because it doesn’t restricts me. I love meeting new people and building stories. Every time I meet a new person there’s a new story for me to write because everyone has a story to share. Also writing is a field that influences and encourages people through your words. The easiest way to leave your mark. For budding writers I would suggest to read a lot and never give up on your hope.

The Spirit Mania: And yes, the most important thing we would like to hear from you is what is your message to those girls and women who are suffering from any problem in their journey to achieve something big? You have been their source of motivation, please convey your thoughts with them.
Answer: As the Indian society is still not so supportive of a career in creative arts and likewise fields, I would suggest them to keep figting for their dreams. Nothing in this world comes easy, I myself went through a lot before stablishing myself in this field but everything went well later. So, never lose faith in your capabilities and keep trying. Not soon but one day you will cherish the rewards of your struggle and everything will be fine.

The Spirit Mania: Being one of the Influential Women; what type of changes do you want in your society as well as with respect to women?
Answer: I hate patriarchy in the Indian society. I see women giving up and sacrificing their dreams for their family. This is not good. There should be no regrets when you die. If men can live their dreams so, women too. They are equal and women shouldn’t be always the one making sacrificing. I want to motivate women to beliveve in themselves, step out of their comfort zones and live their dreams.
Great! We have come to the end of our interview session.
