Interview With Author Naman Chaudhary
What is your newest book about? My book is a trilogy with its first installment Kashmir of My Stories which is getting published by Partridge, A Penguin India Company. It is a collection of stories from the valley of Kashmir which is said to be the most beautiful place in the world, and is situated in Northern India. It will be out in the markets by May end.
What inspired you to write it? Since I was small, I grew up with my grand parents on in the countryside. I loved the peace and harmony there. Nature was one such aspects that inspired me to write. The Green trees and the blabbering streams attracted my imagination towards them. Then in the school, I couldn't relate well to people of my age and that left me with books. I read the Indian and British literature.
What is the writing process like for you? Writing process for me is like freedom. We build our own world and write things which our imagination and mind finds out, away from the rigid rules of society. I follow mainly the BIC formula which is Bump in the Chair for writing can be done only when you sit and let your thoughts come alive on the paper.
What did you do before you became an author? I am 15 right now and I completed my High School this year. I live in the Delhi suburb and in India the education pattern is completely different. Here children are supposed to only study and go to tuition. Though they have freedom but limited and they are told to work hard as the world is waiting like a hungry pack of wolves.
How does it feel to be a published author? I really feel very blessed. To write a book is only half a battle done. The other half is to get it published. And for me, it was more, as I am small and there is a misconception in people that children lack what the adults have. But I want to prove that it is not the truth. Children can do many wonders, and the adults will watch them with awe.
Any advice for struggling writers? What ever thought comes to your mind, just pen it down. Don't worry about grammar don't worry about anything and just write. Writing is freedom and enjoy that, don't let it go in vain. Don't be afraid of facing rejections, that is one inevitable truth. But you must have faith in your work and you will see one day that it will see the light of the world!
Where do you see book publishing heading? The book publishing world is evolving very rapidly. Though I am born in the modern world, I read in the history texts that it was very difficult earlier for the writes to get their works published and make them available to everyone.
But now with the technology coming in, writers are tasting success and the readers are enjoying the perks too
