Q. What's the story behind writing 'Assassinating Modi'? Where did the idea come from?
My admiration for the Prime Minister and the fact that he has so many natural enemies made me write this book. It is a futuristic book set in 2024 when the general elections happen.
Q. What are your thoughts on the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan?
Like everyone, I am concerned about women and children in the country. But this was bound to happen. The Taliban had been in the shadow for twenty years, and with the US leaving the country they have snatched power again. The western media is up in arms and is anti-Taliban. I just hope they do not take revenge on people who supported the government and the American forces.
Q. Which news channels or newspapers have had the most influence on your writing?
I like CNN and Al Jazira. They are very informative and have great story angles. I also enjoy watching the Wion Media network. In terms of the newspaper: I enjoyed reading Mid Day but, now I read most of the news online. My writings have been influenced by these and especially the crispness of my words.
Q. What motivates you?
Being an independent writer it is not easy to stay motivated but, then in life, you have to keep yourself busy. If I don’t write, I get depressed and lonely. So I keep searching for new issues and subjects to write on.
Q. How do you manage your time?
Very badly. I have no fixed schedule and write. Whenever I get an idea, I write. I enjoy writing in the night though.
Q. What would you say is your #1 key to success?
I don’t know if I can call myself a success, not as yet at least. But I think perseverance and patience is the key. Also, being critical of your work and being aware of your shortcoming. It is important to be able to take criticism of your work.
Q. What is your ULTIMATE DREAM that you want to achieve?
I want to have sex with a famous Bollywood actress called Anupriya Goenka. That is my ultimate dream which is yet to be full-filled.
Q. What are your future plans as an author?
I want to write one book a month and focus on stories that cater to the OTT market at large. I wish my books are made into digital content soon.
Q. Future of SALISMANIA.com through your eyes?
Great Magazine. I enjoy your content.
