Q. Please describe what the story/book is about in one sentence.
This book is about how anybody can become somebody through their willingness to endure and persevere, come what may.
Q. Briefly, what led up to this book? What were you writing (and getting published, if applicable) before breaking out with this book?
During the end of my MBA, I was able to secure a job in a company and for various reasons it made me feel nostalgic. From a sweeper to graduating from the best college in commerce, St. Xavier's and working in a call center to earn money for paying my fees and etc. I felt I could inspire a lot of aspiring young people to go beyond limits and make things happen through their solemn desire to win and only win.
Q. What was the time frame for writing this book? Tell us an interesting detail or two, if applicable. For example, did you finish the first draft after one week?
I seriously started writing this book from May 20 and finished writing it by August 25, 2015. In order to get it done, the only thing I did was is to write every single day. If I did not have time in the day time I would come back from work and start writing in the night. The desire to get it done was the sole reason that drove me towards writing this book every single day and making it happen.
Q. Looking back, what did you do right that helped you break in?
I just followed my heart and a strong sense of belief and that is what helped me break in.
Q. Did you have a platform in place? On this topic, what are you doing to build a platform and gain readership?
I wanted people to read my story and find common links that could help them not just in the short run but also in the long run and everything that I wrote was from the heart. So, I did not seek any forms of ways or special techniques while writing this book. It is a common man's story and that is how it should be. I am sure to reach a billion people through this book by the end of this year for which we are using all available means. We won't stop until we get there. One billion readers, that's my goal with this book.
Q. Favorite novel?
Human Revolution by Dr. Daisaku Ikeda is my favorite novel.
Q. Something personal about you people may be surprised to know?
