Tell us more about your book ?
Sanjay is US-returned software millionaire determined to have an arranged marriage after selling his company and breaking up with his two-timing girlfriends. Aditi is a commitment-phobic writer who can’t figure out what her next book is about but has perfected the art of break-ups Mayank and Jayshree are the perfect couple.
If only they weren’t dealing with rude relatives, killing deadlines, procreation pressures and those ultimate romance-killers… monotony and boredom! My book traces the lives of these four successful, thirty-something friends who all come to the same conclusion…The hardest thing about having the perfect life is keeping it that way!
How do you manage your writing time?
I am usually very busy but manage to fit in about 1-2 hours of writing a day.
Your favorite writer and why?
I like Stephen King, Sophie Kinsella and Nicolas Sparks because they have a unique voice and are true to what they are.

I am working on two novels but I am not in a hurry.
Any tips to the upcoming young generation.
If you dream about being a writer, write everyday but don’t quit your day job. This is a very unpredictable field. There is no one right way to live your life.
