What is your advice to young and budding writers who want to publish their debut books?
Don’t give up!! just give a try Everything will come to an positive action when its your time to shine bright. Trying isn’t means Winning, losing,success and failure it’s just a stair towards achieving your goal of your life.
What kind of books do you love to read? Name any three books apart from your books that you would recommend to all.
I actually love to read each and every genre book but recently I am more into motivational one for building a home for my soul.
I am fond of reading as they are my passport to travel around each and every corner of the world
Three books I recommend-
1. “Welcome home”by Najwa zebian mam
2. “Reflections” by Swami Vivekananda ji
3. “Mind platter” by Najwa zebian mam
As an author, is it important to write in simple or high end language, and why?
I think its important to write in an appropriate manner and concept must be approachable to each and everyone who reads your book to build connections between you even stronger. Messages should be conveyed in the best way, easy to understand for the reader and if it can change the mindset by a minimum of 0.1-2%,then it will be considered as best one. I think language should be easy and things are explained in a simple way to make others’ lives better.
In your opinion, how can the decreasing readership trend, especially in India be stopped from further decline?
By encouraging writers to write freely there thoughts, plagiarism should be avoided, copyright should be given to every writer, more publicity to the writers for their hard work, more social media coverage even to debut writers, the impressive quotes should be presented in an interesting manner to create a positive response over it.
