“My grandfather passed away when I was in college. While we didn’t have a great bond, I did enjoy his stories, spending time with him and loved him. The way the family came together to mourn his loss and share tales of his great life, it occurred to me that my children or theirs will never know about this great man! It hit me hard and I realized that when we leave this world, we take away the fabulous stories of our experiences with us.
I have often been materialistic and thought that for one to be happy, one should have a lot of money and should be in a position of power. Little did I know that I was utterly wrong about life and that arts are the salvation that everyone needs. I was pursuing my engineering, and just like any other guy, I was eager to find a job in an MNC to lead a comfortable life. But my grandfather’s death changed it all!
For the past two years, I have been working relentlessly on my passion, i.e., writing. Every person in this world should pursue some form of art. I write for myself and for the few readers who enjoy it and that gives me the satisfaction and motivation to look forward in life.
I have started writing and my goal is to publish my first book by the time I am 23. While I might not be able to produce eternal classics like “The Great Gatsby” or the likes of Sydney Sheldon’s works, I hope to make a difference through my words!
