      I observe, explore, evolve, therefore I author My first book LifeLoveKumbh is about the miasma called life with all its little foibles and joys My second book, ALCHEMIST OF THE EAST , released in December 2015 is an inspirational fable with a historical setting One can read it for wisdom, adventure and love The Chronicle of Sapata Sindhu is my first historical, mythological novel which is available both in the print version and as an ebook.My next release is a love story with a twisted crime, tentatively titled Black Coffin, Sweet Flowers.I am working on a compilation of ghost stories from Himalayas and then i would be completing my Woodhouseque humor The adventures of Mr Midwinter In an interview with Dr Roopleen, Aporva talks about his life, philosophy and his book life love kumbh Roopleen Prasad What s the story behind the story of lifelove Kumbh What inspired you to pen this novel Aporva Kala During early part of 1980s, when I was a child, I happen to attend a Kumbh Bath at Prayag, Allahabad the images of which stayed with me Then I attended a couple of Kumbh fairs at Haridwar, last one being in 2010 It was a lucky break that the story unfolded in January 2010 and I started penning it with three characters on the backdrop of Kumbh fair.As for the inspiration for writing, we all of us have ideas which we want to share with others writing is thus a need to communicate Of late we Indians have developed a sense of gloom and a self deprecating attitude which this book tries to correct as it celebrates what our country stands for peace, universal brotherhood and learning.RP What were the challenges you faced in getting your book published AK I would consider myself lucky that I found a passionate publisher who understood my work and went ahead with publishing it But I do agree that publishing is one hell of a challenge.RP Although there is no magic formula to become a good writer, there are certain attributes of a good writer What in your view are those must have qualities AK I think a writer is a magician in his own right An eye for details, human sensitivity, dreamers passion, idea and proficiency of language and courage to be a part of the story are some of the qualities a writer must possess.RP What avenues have you found to work best for marketing your book AK I followed my publisher s advice of being active on the Social Networking sites And, I must confess, it did help Other than this, I haven t really chalked out a formal strategy for marketing my book for I believe that if a book is well written, well researched and has a unique idea, it would find many a good readers I m quite happy with the response it has received from the readers so far.RP Do you feel any competitive pressure from other authors and their work in the same genre AK Every writer has a style and content which makes him stand out in the crowd Having said that, I would also like to add that Capitalism does entail a sense of competitiveness and struggle to capture the interest of the readers, which makes it imperative for a writer to write well RP What advice would you give to the aspiring writers AK Write from the heart, without the fear or apprehensions about whether your work will get published or not whatever you write, write honestly.RP We have heard that writing for you is an exercise in creativity How do you define creativity and what do you when you are not engaged in your creative work outs AK Creativity is a unique way to do everyday work not something which overwhelms you but something which challenges you to achieve, to grow and to seek When not writing, I pursue Yog and am involved in teaching which I feel is full of challenges and has a lot of potential for innovations.RP What is your idea of a Happy Life AK Life itself is free from adverbs, prefixes and definitions It is our c
