Books have always fascinated him from his early childhood and they drive him to ‘think’ differently. In his words, “Yes any form of art requires thinking. But, while writing, I have to realize that thinking is not the key to good stories. Good stories goes much beyond writing – It needs to explore culture – politics – history and much more! I try to encapsulate some of my thought through my writings. And,I have an irrefragable idea that one day my pen will help me to explore myself.”
