My parents and mentors play a vital role in my life I have leaned from them they are the foundation to my personal values and work ethic.
I remember my parents told me when I was 10 years old that whatever work I do I should give my 100 % while doing the same never compromise on injustice, integrity, attack on your self-respect. Regardless of how many people are standing in your favor or against always do the right thing.
My Guru & my mentor always taught me Life is not a race, it’s an experience you have live it magnificently and to it’s full potential. Any day gone without learning is a day wasted. I have learned from them that success is not in competition it’s in collaboration.

7)How did you start your writing journey?
I wanted to write from a long time however I couldn’t decide on what topic should I be writing fact or Fiction, while I was contemplating between the two, I found a mentor my guru who believed in me, inspired me, and guided me to write.
He also suggested since I am a mentor and counselor, I should write on something that would help and inspire people.
This is how my writing journey started I started interviewing people noting down their experiences and started incorporating their stories.
So anyone reading my books do remember every incident mentioned in the book is a true experience of their life somebody has faced those challenges in real life. My only request is be empathetic.
8)How do you react to the success you got thus far?

And miles to go before I sleep
