This blog used to be views on various things. But in all these years, I find it going a whole new direction.
Something which I have loved all the time. It's BOOKS!! So, presenting a whole new saga, of books and a little about them, whatever I can find, write, visualise and imagine...

Author Interview : Jaydeep Khot, author of ‘50 Miles : A Reverse Journey' (Part 2)
this section, he talks of the most fulfilling parts in the book, the
character he felt most close to, his next book, and also his favourite
authors, and then a little more, Folks...
What are the most fulfilling parts in your
The entire book is the most
fulfilling experience of my life. I never thought, I could ever finish the book
completely, because I am good at short stories and essays. Well, there is
always a first time.
Though, If I am told to choose, I
would go for the part where there is the teaching scene. As it is a personal
experience, it is very close
to my heart.
Which particular character did you feel most
close to? Why?
This is because he is very confused
in life. I have a lot of friends and family members, who have been like this.
On a personal note, I was the same
way, when I was a teenager in school.
But this does not mean Haria is my
reflection. He isn’t. He is completely different from me. We are poles apart.
The confusion he has in his life,
brings me closer to him on a sympathetic front.
Do you have another book planned? If so,
what is it about?
Yes, It is Envisage - Looking into the
future.It a about a girl, Kasak who has power to see the future and therefore,
she prevents crime with the help of these powers.
Kasak was also a character in ‘50
Miles - A Reverse Journey’.
But they both are unrelated. Or are
they? Who knows?
Which book are you currently reading?
I am reading ‘Business as Usual’ by Deepak Chawla. It is a
collection of short stories published by The Write Place.
I completed reading the first short story and I am totally
awestruck by the author’s command over the language and creating a thinking
process, which is very rare in Indian authors.
J.K. Rowling because she knows how to touch children’s hearts
and that is something I would love to have one day.
Chetan Bhagat, because of his simplicity of English language.
He knows how to communicate even to the sectors of the society, which don’t
have good command over the language.
What else do you do on a daily basis?
I am a final year CA student. I attend classes for six hours
a day. Study for an hour every day. Read as much as I can. Go to the and
practise running for the SCMM 2016 21.1 kms, which I am hopeful I will be
Help my sister in her 9th grade history and
civics. Watch TV shows and tweet about them.
