1.  How should a person spend his or her life?

A person should live a simple life. Life is so alluring, and humans are treasures. Enjoy your every moment be beneficial to every person you meet, try to do good deeds in this momentary world. Don’t engross yourself into the materialistic artifacts, don’t be so much money-oriented.

Be the reason for happiness to every person you meet. Serve humanity. Believe me, your life will be bed of roses.

Time and people are the most important aspects if you lose people, they won’t come back so acclaim them. Don’t worry about what you don’t have, think about the blessings, think about the people who don’t have those things which you own.

Always be grateful to God for what you have and always remember life is a chance it’s a great blessing always have a goal to be eminent in a way that people will remember you in their kind words after your death.


2.  Can we separate humanity from politics?

No never, you can’t detach humanity from politics. A person should first be humanitarian. He should understand the problems of the general public how indigents live their life.

Their suffering and agony should be understood by the politician so that they can better serve them. Humanity is the first pillar of life what so ever your profession is you should be first a humanitarian. Be the reason for someone’s smile.

7.  Why do you believe your analyses have become so famous?

I think we should have a concept of we, not just a concept of me. I never think about anything which is only beneficial for me, I always think about which is beneficial for all.


8.  What’s the best book you read in 2019 thus far?

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, I admire the way they portray the importance of living in the present moment and avoiding thoughts of the past or future.


9.  In general, what’s your writing process like?

I can only write when there is peace and usually after 7 pm I start writing. I just let my fingers flow above the keys, and I prefer distraction-free writing.


10.  What’s your best advice for getting over writer’s block?

There are times in life when every person becomes stressful and is distracted, he or she can’t concentrate and doesn't know how to proceed with writing. So my advice would be don’t ever lose your hope, take a deep breath, and relax your self first. Think about your own experiences, your own life, your lessons and do inculcate that in your writings.

No one can stop writing because we also write when we were in school or college or university or either you are pursuing your professional career. we always write in our exams we produce our own ideas also when we are working professionally. A writer always has ideas but try to find an effective way to convey your ideas.

So always seek the motivation and get the inspiration to write more and more.  Always write when you have peace of mind, also remember that a writer writes what he or she can’t express directly, and you can change the world by your precious words.
