When you meet someone who is in harmony with your aims and hopes, who’s up ahead, who’s tried things and been brave in places you haven’t imagined, who is like you, but bigger and better and finer – that’s when I find the real learning begins. Sometimes in a chance meeting over breakfast, sometimes during an event, sometimes as part of a correspondence – you never know when someone will make the whole thing five-dimensional, pressing, new. But you can hope for it, be ready, keep alert.
I’ve already mentioned how nourishing it is to attend such events and meet members of the public who care about books and who greet them with intelligent enthusiasm. These events also provide an opportunity for writers to meet other writers and this can be a splendid thing.
I’ve met Durjoy Datta yesterday, a Bestselling author of India(Durjoy Datta is a young author who knows what his young audience needs from him. He always manages to write a book based on teenagers yet touch a different layer of emotion each time. From last 2-3 years, he have begun experimenting with characters in his books which is proving him to be a writer better than many other claiming to sell more than him in off-seasons when these bestselling authors don’t release their work. It is incredible on the author’s part to write more than 12 books in his writing career of 9 years. Kudos!) He was in the city to promote his new book: Our Impossible Love.
The book’s summary goes something this:
Life teaches us what ‘love’ truly is
And love gives definition to ‘life’
Aisha, a bit of a late bloomer, has to figure out what it means to be a woman and to be desired. Danish feels time is running out for him and he’s going to end up as a nobody, as opposed to his overachieving, determined younger brother.
Life takes a strange turn when Danish, the confused idiot, is appointed as the
student counsellor to Aisha. Between the two of them they have to figure out love, life, friendship—most of all, themselves. And it’s not proving to be . . . easy?
Our Impossible Love presents
Life the way it is and
Love the way it should be!!
I was not a big fan of him. But as I look at him it changed my perspective. He’s so down to earth person. He’s on the peak of success these days, almost work with so many co-authors (Including my favourite one Nikita Singh too)
It was indeed a successful event I’ve ever attained, where I could met so many people who are far creative and experts in their field. It was really struck me seeing them. People out there, putting so much efforts to be an author. And what they are doing is ‘Hardwork’. It is inspiring.
It was a time for refreshments now, where I came to know a lady, Miss Neha Thakur, who were handling the Q&A session during the event. And thankfully I was the first guy who raised his hand to ask a question to Durjoy Datta. So, this became a good opportunity for me to talk to her. How did she come to know about this? Are you a publisher or something? I was so curious to get answers from her side. She then, introduced herself and told me that she’s running a creative writers’ group on WhatsApp, Facebook etc. I asked her, how can I be a part of this group? Is there anything I need to do to be a part of your group? You know, these kinda activities always attract me. In my entire group I’ve came across no friend of mine who’s into writing, sketching, reading, to be something else from the crowd, who can stand alone, who can think out of the box.
It was all me, who does all these kinda things by seeing and getting inspired from such people. I try to attend events, places which I’ve never see, to meet such great personalities.
Thankfully, yesterday was the day to meet all the opportunities. Neha Ma’am gave me her contact number to ping her. I did so. And trust me, she’s an admin of a group and I’m so grateful to see that there are 105+ members present in her group called Rising Litera. There’s so much to learn from those people. I kinda, subscribed my self to get inspirations I guess. Hahaha!! Thanks Neha Ma’am and group members for adding me in your amazing group. 🙂
Thanks so much all the members of Rising Litera. ☺
Another thing I wanna tell you guys is I met a girl over there who’s name is Shaily Rathia. To be honest, I’ve never seen such fan in my entire life. She was so crazy for Durjoy Datta. She wanted to do so many things for Durjoy. She was handed with 3 books on which she wanted Durjoy’s autograph. She wanted to take selfies with Him. She wanted to click full photos of herself with Him as well. Not just with her own phone but from my phone too. So that, if one photo doesn’t look good, she can flip in to another one. 😉
She was panting all the time man!! That was something amazing. She Actually embarrassed Durjoy when she demanded a wish from Durjoy. He just went off with his shy face, telling her, ‘No. No. Please don’t do that it is so awkward’.
Haha, can you imagine what she wanted to do? She wanted to pull his cheeks like a little kid. Holy sh*t! Hahahaha I mean who does that.
If I or someone else were Durjoy Datta, even anyone would have said a big NOOOOOOOO to this, it is embarrassing Haha!! It wasn’t her fault either, she was overwhelming at that point of time.
Anyways, She’s a nice girl though. 🙂
Later, in the book shop only. I came to know Dr Dilip Pandit, who is an editor of Alma Today. I told him about my blogs as well. He asked me to contact him. I’m surely gonna go to him. After all, these things can’t be ignored
It also reminds me the meeting with Nikita Singh. She’s a co-author of Durjoy Datta’s Someone like you.
She came to Indore last year for the launching of her new book, After All This Time. I was so excited to meet her. As you can see my excitements in following pictures 😜 I was pretending as it was my own book launching seesion(look at that picture of mine with Nikita Ji holding her book in my hand and posing towards the camera. Haha!! See the excitement in my smile,lol!)
‘Im a fan of the arts.
The art of getting rich thorough all aspects, the art of self-mastery, and the art of success.
It was indeed a great experience for me. A lot of good things happened in a single day. Thanks so much everyone.
I don’t really know my fate, but what I just know is I’m on my way to success by learning and learning and learning.
