1. What made you write the blend of mythology, thriller and science?
– We always tend to do what we like most. I love mythological thrillers by Christopher Doyle and Ashwin Sanghi which deeply influenced me to write a story on the mythological researches I had done.
2. You have mentioned facts in the book along with the notes, that is an impressive idea. How much did you take to complete the research part?
– We always question what we see and what we read. These are answers to my readers. To just let them know where the idea came from.
Yes, the research took the major part in writing this book writing the first draft took over an year and to link all that together in a single book was a mammoth task. But I think I was blessed with Godess Saraswati to be get the flow and join all those stories in one beautiful piece.
3. You have chosen a Sanskrit Title, any particular reason for that?
– Sanskrit is the root to all the knowledge and all the languages we Indians speak. Sanskrit is an ocean of knowledge, It is becoming an universal language as most of the western countries incorporating it in their curriculum. So it was my first choice.
4. Do you have any experience in writing before this book?
– No I had never written any stories other than my engineering answer sheets. Stories are always in my dreams. I think they found a way to come out through my writing.
5. Please add something for aspiring writers, your readers and BookXp.
– Well I have learnt a lot after I had completed writing my first draft. I wish I had studied the art of writing well before the first draft. The book would have come more beautifully. So I ask writers to learn from many sources on online for example YouTube channels of Jenna Moreci and Meg Lattore will be of a great help for sure.
I ask readers to embrace the book provide me feedback on ways to improve my writing.
