Review: This is one the shortest and very interesting books I have read. It hardly took me 30minutes to finish this book and sometimes such reads are refreshing. The conversation in the book has been written on the lines of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie Devdas. Devdas is Authdas here in this story. And like Devdas finding his lost love with Paro, Authdas tries to bring his lost interest of writing his unfinished novel Paro. He also seeks the help of Chandramukhi. The first part of the book deals with conversation of Authdas with various characters and his zeal of writing his unfinished novel Paro. In second part, there are tips for aspiring writers. The book is to the point, the movie style unfolding of Authdas contrasting with Devdas is amazing. I enjoyed reading it. This book is a total fun to read and I highly recommend it.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
