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...
Read up, the second part of Rajiv Singh's Interview. In this, he tells us how the social, political
and economic backgrounds of India affected his writingm, dishes out some advice to today's authors, and also gives

How did the social, political
and economic backgrounds of India affect your writing?
As I said, the social, economic and
political background of the story runs in realtime. Therefore, of course, these
backgrounds affect my writing very much. In my next book also, the readers
would identify the social, economic and political scenario throughout the
story, though I will not specify the years as I have done in this book.
you tell the readers about your experiences and how it was
related to what you wrote?
I have seen many
upper caste poor families, living in distress
like Daya Shankar Chaube's, who tries hard to maintain his family of seven with
a meagre monthly salary of Rs 3,000 in the story.
Therefore, not only
families from Dalit classes are poor and underprivileged, but families from upper caste too. Unfortunately, there is no support
for them in the form of reservations and government grants.
Any advice to writers that would
like to be published today? How tough is it to be published?
Before submission to publishers, take
your time in research and polishing your writing and be convinced yourself. Don’t lose patience.
Writing is not about shortcut to
fame and money. Moreover, just getting published does not guarantee success.
What is the next book that you have
It’s a political thriller with suspense,
woven with a terror plot.
in a senior government position, not much time is left
to do many things on a
daily basis, but I try not to miss gym,
with the time left,
after commitment to the job and the family.
I do one thing for sure on daily basis; promoting and speaking about my book.
