An Interview: 

When did you first realize that you wanted to be a writer/ a storyteller?        
Five years back, I was pursuing MBA and wanted to be a businessman and even had started a business while in second semester. But I failed completely and lost all my saving and some investment of my friends as well. I was depressed, lonely. I had no idea how and when I had taken writing seriously. Though I had been writing stories since I was in school. 

What inspires you to write?
I love to write story, for me writing is my passion and my happiness, so I am always get energy to write anything from my heart. Of course readers reviews, love and appreciation are the biggest inspiration for me. 

How did you come up with the idea for your current story?
Like most of the youth, I also dreamt to change our corrupt system. As a creative person I've some ideas for the society. Most of the time I discuss about my ideas to form a better society with my friends. I believe in a better future. Being a Gandhian I want to change everything lawfully, without wasting of blood. The love story of this book is always in my mind, it's my fantasy in which I'd a girlfriend from childhood, which is still a fantasy and won't possible till I've a time-machine. I decided to improvise the story with my vision, and thus the story got it's shape.

Are there some stories tucked away in some drawer that was written before and never saw the light of the day?
Two stories are there which never saw the light. I think those books need little more time. I have to give few months for them before go for publication.

Tell us about your writing process.
First thing for a story is the concept, without it you can't start a story. Then I start thinking about characters, I try to visualize my characters,search them through my friends behavior. After getting a rough idea how to start my story I write a rough manuscript in paper, then I go to my laptop. After finished my book I leave the story completely up to few months. Then I start editing.

What is your favorite scene in the book? Why?
In my book their is a situation where Priya cleared the IAS exam but wasn't interested to join because she didn't want to stay away from her husband, Vijay. But the way Vijay convinced her was my favorite scene.

‘Do you know why God fulfilled our dream of being together? Because we have greater things to do for our country. I am already yours, now do something for our country, ’Vijay said and gave a kiss over Priya's forehead. Spiderman says, “Great power comes with great responsibility.”God gives you the opportunity to serve people. Does something for the welfare of our country, always remember that you are heroine in the eyes of your parents and your husband, so be a heroine.” 

This was my favorite because here Vijay sets an example for husband, be a husband your duty is to guide your wife in right direction, he sets an example how a husband should be. 

Did any of your characters inherit some of your own quirks?
Main character of my book contains most of my quirks. As I belong to today's generation, so my thoughts reflect thoughts our generation. It contains my quirks about religion, goal of life, education system and society.

Do you read? Who are your favourite authors and how have they influenced your writing style?
I love to read, I am a great admire of J RR Tolkien and J K Rowling. One of my favorite book is 'The God of small things'. Somehow all book have their influence over me.

What is the best piece of advice you have received, as a writer, till date?
One of my friend advised me that, 'life is not a mathematics equation, you have to wait for nine months to get a baby,  to get something precious you have to see it in your dream, give sufficient time to grow, nurture it carefully.'
I am sure this sentence isn't created by my friend, he must have read it somewhere else but the sentence has a great impact on me.

What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone that wants to get into writing?
Nothing is more satisfactory than writing a book, and nothing is more difficult than writing a book. If anyone wants to be a writer then read a lot, discuss various matters with intelligent people and try to write down your own thoughts. Keep patience, believe on your story and your ability you will definitely get success.
                      
What would be the Dream Cast for you book if it was to be turned into a movie?
Susant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor as lead role.

If you were to be stranded on the famous deserted island, what three things would you carry?
Lots of Books, Laptop and phone.

How do you spend your free time? Do you have a favorite place to go and unwind?
I love to watch movie, love to play football at free time. I want to travel all across the world, I want to meet different people and spend time with them. I’ve a wish to go Germany and research about World War 2. 

Tell us three fun facts about yourself.
I easily forget faces and names of common things, if I write one page it may possible that I might have made more than ten spelling mistakes. Even once I wrote spelling of my own name wrongly. I wrote my surname “Senapation” instead of “Senapati”. Still my friends call me “Senapation” in fun.

What do you have in store next for your readers?
Next Story of mine is a science-fiction. The story name is “Together -1, born of a God” It’s a war base science-fiction story after annihilation of Earth.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with your readers?
You always get two choices to get your dream, one is difficult, different and hard to achieve. Other is easy, usual and smooth. You have to make a choice. The easy choice will take you nowhere, it will give you life of a machine, where you will die one day without doing anything for mankind. So choose the difficult one, do something differently, achieve something by your dedication and passion. Believe me, it will give you pain and suffering but at least you will get some satisfaction in your life.

About the Book:
Nobody is going to remember your mark, people only remember your work. 
Without innovation mark is meaningless, without creativity knowledge has no value, without vision and goal a man is nothing more than a dead body. 
Only human can innovative things, discover something, write a book, and create marvelous paintings. By a business idea can give employment to thousands of employees. Try to create or innovative something, if you get success then it's great. If you become a failure then what's the big deal? 
   It's thought of Vijay, he was a man with different thought, he had every symptom of a great man, still he lived with his mediocre dreams to get a job and then marry his childhood sweetheart. After few years of job experience wanted to establish his own business-like millions of other, but fate had some different plans. Our corrupt system forced him to enter the dirty game of politics. He gained power to avenge his antagonists, but being a Gandhian, his strategy was something unusual . . . his revenge wasn't ordinary . . .
