His all three books are topping the bestseller charts from the day of release. He was listed as one of the ‘Celebrity authors of 2013’. Now his fourth novel ‘Sorry You’re Not My Type’ is going to be published in the month of love, February. The book is up for pre-booking and even before the release, it’s already making some news on the bestseller lists of all online portals. We got a chance to interact with him and hence we told him to share with us some insights of his book and this is what he had to say:
It’s said if your love is true then it will return. But none told what if your love doesn’t return ever. So I found my own way and wrote “Few things left unsaid” in search of my lost love. The journey till “Sorry You’re Not My Type” (SYNMT) was fruitful.
In 2013 September, I visited Delhi for book tour of “It started with a friend request”. Once done, I had gone for a party with my close friend Sakshi in Miabella which is located in Hauz Khaz Village, Delhi. If she would not have taken me there, SYNMT would not have come into existence. Sakshi had decided this lounge as the manager ‘Anuj’ was her good friend.
The voice of the singer who was performing live at the lounge on the guitar mesmerized me. Anuj told me that he was once a part of most reupted college band in Delhi named VAYU and his name is Vikrant. I became curious to know what made him sing at a lounge despite being a part of such a famous band. Every person has a story to tell. Some live forever and some die young. I wanted to know the story behind VAYU. Anuj convinced Vikrant to unfold the pages of his life.
Yes, it’s a true story of love and friendship. The most difficult thing to explain in life is the simplest truth called love. Vikrant had gone through so much that at a point he could have lost all his friends. But he was a fighter. That night not only taught me new ways to live life but also gave life to my fourth book. Thanks to Anamika who permitted me to proceed with it. Vikrant had kept few conditions in front of me and I had to follow that while writing. There are certain incidents in the book which are kept hidden keeping in mind feelings of that particular person as that person who walked to the dead end in his life.
The strong message that is conveyed is value relationship and never give up on your dream. Happiness is a whore who breathes in your ear and before you know it, you’re spreading your legs for her. She lures you into the feeling and then rapes you!! But when your passion and purpose is greater than your fears, you find a way to overcome them.
Another message that is conveyed is ‘Say no to jealousy. It changes the nature of your relationship.’ Everybody has gone through something that has changed them in a way that they could never go back to the person they once were!
SYNMT will imbalance all your emotions be it romance or friendship or simply love!! It’s not a romantic saga but a story happening around you in your college campus!!
Vikrant, Anamika and Yuvi will redefine friendship, affection and infatuation!! In every boy’s life, there is a girl he’ll never forget and in every girl’s life, there is a boy she’ll never forget!!
I promise that readers/fans will have a smile when they close the book after enjoying the ride of life.
