Vikram is the author of the book, the awakening of an Indigo.
The author practices law (criminal and civil litigation) in Mumbai. He is affiliated with the Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa. Before he entered independent practice, the author had worked with some of the most brilliant trial advocates and solicitors of India. He had also worked in various government departments. In his law college days, the author had spent most of his time in the library, researching the various aspects of law and reading a wide variety of fictional works.Being an independent law practitioner gives the author ample time and resources to read, research, observe and write. This book is a result of that. The author is also keenly interested in spiritual activities. Some of the portions in this book reflect the knowledge he has acquired through his spiritual practices.
1: How did it feel when your first book got published?
I was really happy when it happened but at the same time, I knew what was at stake so instead of being happy I got down to promotional activities more aggressively.
2: What is your motivation for writing more?
The response of the readers that’s something motivated me more and more; everyday I would receive an email or a message on Instagram or Facebook asking for the next part of the book.
3: Do you pen down revelations and ideas as you get them, right then and there?
Yes I do that very often even during sleep I record it over voice notes and I check the notes the next day.
4: What other genres do you enjoy reading?
Historical fiction, thriller, action-based novels, books based on lone wolf characters.
5: Which of your novels best describes you as a person?
Well, I have not yet written the novel yet that describes me as a person.
6: Have you ever written a character based on the real you in some part?
Like I said I have not written any character based on me yet but I might in the near future.
7: Can you tell us about your current projects?
Currently, I am working on the next part of the series and apart from that, I am also involved in another book which is still in the research process.
8: When can the readers expect your next book in print?
Perhaps; in winter.
9: One character from your books, that you like the most.
Vikram is the character I like the most.
10: Although all books say that all the characters in the book aren’t real or related, but are they really all fictional and made up?
When I was in college studying law; one professor explained to us the importance of statements and more in particular about what joke literally means; sometimes when people say oh it was meant to be funny or it was just a joke, it clearly states that the things they could not say in serious tone and or manner; they said it using little bit of humour in it. Well, fiction is somewhat like that when truth cannot be said out in the open they label it as fiction. So coming to your question I would say that in some situations the characters are real and even related but the manner in which they are presented to us that’s something called creativity.
