Question: Tell us something about you. How and when did you start writing?
– I belong to a very small town of Mahendergarh district of Haryana. I have studied at RPS school in Mahendergarh itself. Currently, I’m studying in Banasthali University.
I was addicted to reading novels of Premchand Ji. After not clearing in AIPMT exam once, I was thinking what I’ll do in my life. At that time, I opted to go ahead with my passion.
In December of 2015, I started writing my book. I had completed hardly a chapter and then I left it because of the pressure of my semester exams. In between that phase, I collected the story. As I couldn’t hold myself much longer, after the first year of graduation I completed my book within three months.
Question: Tell us about your book and your inspiration behind writing it.
– Fate of My Faith is all about survival, choices, and acceptance. The main plot of my story is circling around the life of a physically challenged girl. All the characters of my book are influenced by real-life persons. However, I deviated them from fiction.
There was a time when I was unable to deal with depression. Then I met this girl ‘Suman’ who used to be happy in every condition. Even after being a handicap, she was happy. This was the biggest inspiration of my life. If she can Inspire me, then why not others who are struggling with their lives, every single day.
