1. What is your book about?

My book "EKA – Rendezvous With Your Life Forces" describes that a rendezvous happens with life forces every single day and you are the decision-maker to accept or reject these moments in your life and how ‘EKA –The One, Single and Supreme Sense’ helps you accept them in the purest form. The book describes how having a more vigorous ‘EKA’ can make you understand the realities of life and understand the secrets of an ecstatic life. The authentic essence of these life forces and how they represent part of your experience of being in the world are explained. The author explicates how ‘EKA’ helps you understand the puissance that runs through your subconscious mind and questions arising in your mind by being exposed to the realities and secrets of a blissful life!

2. Where do you draw your writing inspiration from?

I experience emotions and words like - Insult, Worthless, Humiliated, Hurt, Betrayed, Stabbed, Worthiness, Wary, Woeful, Worried, Wronged, Alone, Angry, Anguish, Annoyed, Anxious, Bad, Bitter, Cold, Cowardly, Cross, Crushed, Complaining, Timid, Offended, Offensive, Pained, Pained, Panic, Paralyzed, Pathetic, Perplexed, Dominated, Weary, Woeful, Worked Up, Worried, double-crossed, Ditched, Wronged, Alone, Angry, Anguish, Annoyed, Anxious, Bad, Bitter, Cold, Cowardly, Cross, Complaining, Threatened, Timid, Stoned, Embarrassed, Empty, Excluded, Fatigued, Fearful, Forced, Frightened, Frustrated, Fuming, Hateful, Heartbroken and Helpless often and this is where my inspirations of writing come from.

3. What is your writing process like?

My writing process is simple, write every day for 30 minutes. I allow no interruptions, no beeps, no notifications, and nothing to check for 30 minutes straight before my house gets lured by the smell of freshly brewed Himalayan coffee wake me up and I start my day of being a Human Resources professional.

4. In your opinion what are the elements of a good writer?

I think having a strong “Central Idea " form the base of elements of good writings. Staying focused on the central idea has to involve focusing on clear, manageable ideas & arguments. "Organization" has to be second elements for sure, as it involves keeping the readers oriented to the central idea. "Supporting material" is the third element in the form of explanations, examples, and statistics, etc. to make the ideas and information presented meaningful and memorable for the readers. “Word Choice & Point-of-View" has to be the fourth element as if the language is clear, specific, accurate, and appropriate to the audience, purpose, and material it creates a greater emphasis on what the writer is trying to explain with his writing. And last but not least "Grammar & Punctuation" without this you writing will look amateur.

5. Any difficulties you faced while writing the book?

Honestly, NO. It comes easy to me!

6. Some say writing can be emotionally draining? Do you agree, if so what tips will you give?

I do not agree writing can be emotionally draining as it is never for me. Though I would certainly like to give tips of anyone who feels this way? First, one should never have unclear thinking, secondly have frustration with sentence structure and vocabulary, third- not feel like every sentence written is worthless, fourth - shall never rewrite the same concept repeatedly with no satisfaction and lastly never have negative thinking that clouds your judgment, thoughts, and writing style.

7. How should one deal with criticism?

My way of dealing with criticism is to say nothing, do nothing. Smile at it and say thank you!  

8. Given a chance, is there any book which you wish you wrote it?

Putting myself in the big league will not be the right thing here by naming the book, I wish I could have written? Though I am always fascinated by the words and inspirational writings of Ashoka, Julius Caesar, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Junior, Nelson Mandela, William Shakespeare & Leo Tolstoy.

9. Without giving out any spoilers, Is there any message you would like your readers to take away from the book?

How do you understand the real essence of life forces? How do you write an honest book about different aspects of life forces without being less philosophical and more practical and acceptable to people? How do you understand the energies of life forces? What are the rendezvous moments of life forces in your life? What value do life forces have in the present? My book answers all questions for everyone who wishes to seek answers on the same.     

10. Which author have influenced you in becoming a writer?

William Shakespeare, Leo Tolstoy, Paulo Coelho has always influenced me with their writings.  I reckon they are all cult figures in writing where-in no one can ever ape their style, thought process and influence on the global audience. If as a writer I can reach even 1% to their level, I'll be the fortunate one.

Ahaglow Face Wash Review

Tried and Tested! For the past two months, I went through a very bad acne outburst phase. And when I say bad, it means BAD. So, with my knack for researching, I googled trying to find a cure or maybe at least some home remedies to treat my acne. But, a multiple trial and error and I gave up.  We know how pimple popping is more than just satisfying, hence the 'habit' left me with very bad scares on my forehead and chin, also I noticed more acne than I had in the first place.  Finally, a visit to my dermatologists came to my rescue. She prescribed  some medication i.e. face wash (I am coming to this), some anti-acne ointments, and a few capsules to take.  Obviously, I had to religiously follow the skin routine treatment, but in the hour of everything, there was this thing which I discovered… it was the face wash (Yep, the point of this blog, TBH) which I can give the entire credit to. AKA presenting to you my fountain of youth in a face wash (I am exaggerating a lil bit.) Ahaglow.…

Killing Time in Delhi by Ravi Shankar Etteth: Book Review

About the Book Bon vivant Charlie Seth, a privileged denizen of Lutyens’ Delhi, leads a life of idle luxury fuelled by money, drugs, sex, and parties. A cocaine overdose kills his ditzy girlfriend, thrusting him into a maelstrom of conspiracy, murder, blackmail, and promiscuity. As the world of Crazy Rich Punjabis unravels, Charlie’s future is suddenly at the mercy of an enigmatic woman, an unscrupulous swami, a society-obsessed policeman, a slippery drug pusher and a disloyal valet. The only person who can help him is his missing aunt. Holed up in the country palace that his grandfather had won in a game of cards from a raja on Diwali, Charlie plots his revenge. Killing Time in Delhi is a brutally funny look into the shenanigans of Delhi’s ultrarich who live in the fast lane and are high on hypocrisy, borrowed money, and dubious deals.
My Take on the Book You may be wondering, 'if the title of the book is really about 'Killing Time in Delhi?' then,  yes, it is. Also, it is ab…

Sign

Do you believe in Sign? (Not talking about traffic signs) Me? oh yes, totally.. my day revolves around sign's and my night ends with one. Okay. That is an extreme exaggeration.
 I do believe in it but, not to the extend where I would wait for it to occur forever. It is believed by few that signs are usually sent from heaven but, to act upon it... it is our own choice
However, paying a close attention to what have been indicated to us could be a significant and the more we feel we are being directed to follow, the more we come across such instructions (Visually and audibly).
while sometimes, it becomes unbelieving obvious on coming across many such circumstances where we are made to understand what it really means, owing to the fact where we meet definite sign which eventually leads us to accept without further doubts.


Of course... not forgetting that everyone has their own understanding to handle visions and sign shown to them but, as for me i intend to go ahead with the…
