How did you know you wanted to be an author? I was just taking a morning walk in a Maharishi Arvind Garden, Fatehgunj, Baroda. We lived very near to this garden. The environment and the times and historical personal and social conditions must have caused me to become an author / poet .
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Just do not be driven by the market force instead listen to your inner voice , the voice of an author within you. Do not be in trap of negative criticism you will always have your day no matter in what situation or conditions you are in. Just practice creative writing and your style will develop and follow you.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?In fact , creative writing defies any rituals or practices , at least with me . To me thoughts flash at any time , I just jot it down and later it develops and I often work and rework with my work. It is hard labour. It often pays later. But to me faculty of intuition that I give in human being and author and artist and poets and prophets .
What message to you want readers to remember?A reader is the real hero. An author or a poet is recognised by reader. A reader breathes a life into a creative writing or a poems. Hermeneutics is all a reader or a art of multiple reading is one has. Keep reading and your are free to have your own say and make out from the poem.
