It was the lessons learned through some very trying circumstances in his life that inspired him to write 'Irade', a collection of five stories in Hindi.

Congratulations on the release of Your Book “Irade".

Thank you.

What is the feedback from your friends and readers who have already read your book?

My friends and readers have appreciated the stories.

What kind of books inspire you as a writer?

Books containing motivational and inspirational stories.

Who are your favorite authors and poets?

Munshi Premchand, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Salim Khan, Javed Akhtar, Gulzar, Sameer Anjaan.

Why did you want to become a writer?

Because I want to tell people something through my stories and I want to increase the morale of children. I want those children to understand that victory takes place after defeat.

Who inspired you to become a writer?

My circumstances and bad times I faced made me a writer. Yes, those bad times and circumstances continued over a few years.

What are you doing to let readers know about your book?

I am promoting my book on social media. And I'm banking on word of mouth publicity too.

Tell me something about your book. Some highlights.

This book is a collection of five stories on different issues. Three of the five stories are about how to face challenges in life.

Through these three stories I want to say that instead of escaping from hurdles, face the challenges of life and achieve your goal.

You have to fulfil your dreams even when your close ones are not with you while you are struggling to fulfil your dream.

One story is about aim in life. This sory is about a man, who determined to achieve his goal. This story is about a person who faced so many challenges, but still didn’t stop chasing his dream. This story is aboout the person whose family left him and went away from this world, yet he did not let his dream die. This is the story of a person who wanted to fulfil his dream and show it to his mother, but his mother lost her life, but that person did not lose his dream. This story is of a person who fulfilled his intention and fulfilled someone else's unfinished dream.

And I have written the remaining two stories for simple entertainment.

Tell us something about yourself and your background.

My name is Ali and I am a writer. I have completed my B.Sc. in Computer Science and B.Ed too.

While raising me, no one had told me that start preparing for your future; what you want to be from now. No one has said this to me, so I casually just completed my studies.

As I did not do my studies properly, so I was not getting a government job. I became a village bumpkin who was spending his time loitering here and there.

Going forward, I was in need of studies but what can I do because I could not set the clock back.

Then I made this "intention" in my heart that the time that has passed will not come back, but I can fix the tomorrow.

So today I am a busy business man and a writer.

Do you plan to take it up as a full-time profession if a response is good?

Yes, if my writing work can be good or if I get success, then I will definitely adopt this writing work.
