Engineering & Literature

He wanted to be a Mechanical Engineer because most of his family members and relatives were Mechanical Engineers. Apart from Mechanical Engineering he also had interest in reading books. One reason for choosing Mechanical Engineering was that because it was considered to be the safe option from career point of view.

Good to be uncomfortable

When he completed his Management degree he joined a Multinational company thinking that he will never do the writing work and will enjoy working in a MNC. After few months of job neither he wrote any book nor he read any. This is when he started feeling uncomfortable and got to know this is not the place for him and he quit his job without giving a second thought.

Writing as a profession

He believes that statistically very few percentage of people are able to earn good amount of money from writing work. Writing is not something like an eCommerce business. He believes that publishing is a very ‘hit and miss’ business.
