Q.1 Define Happiness in three words.
My Smiling Parents!
This is what happiness meant to me till eternity, nothing materialistic or spiritual can replace this, what so ever!
Q.2 Author of two great books in such young age, how has the journey been so far?
My journey in the world of literature has been miraculous. And by miraculous, I meant it brought internal peace and contentment to my heart and soul.
Literature for me is like a playground for a kid. After getting tired of work, world or life I often find solace in this world. No person is capable enough to listen or understand you; however, the ultimate power is in pen and paper. Hence, the pen is the mightier one and a paper with words is full of wisdom.
Yes…I agree that the journey for an artist is harder than usual but believe me I am still in the midst of my journey and not reached my destination yet.

Pursue your passion and don’t leave anything incomplete in your life, be it any task, project, communication, relationship, commitment or promise.
Parents are our well-wishers and they never want us to fail. Prove your worth and win their trust. They will support you in your every pursuit!
Q.10 As a young and successful author, how would you like to inspire the budding writers to plan their life?
I believe art should be dispersed as much as possible with no intention to make money. If your art is a masterpiece … it will bring money. Hence, readers are more necessary for any writer. Authors should measure their success by the number of readers, not by their bank balance.
Keep writing….your heart out, it’s not about grammar always…it’s about your expressions.

Best life for me is what I am Living NOW! Nothing can be better than this! If being calculative, I would say…turning my passion into the profession is what the best happened to me.

I am a versatile personality and I fall in love with almost everything very easily. There is no particular genre that excites me….its the writing style and the content which can bring about an adrenaline rush in me!
Q.13 Today’s modern Authors fails badly at marketing their book to the world but you have made commendable efforts with In the canopy of life, and four takeaways for them?
An author needs to target that section of the crowd which they want to write for. Then they have to focus on their psychology. Accordingly, they should choose the genre and do research. The content of your novel is the one and only aspect that will increase its lifeline.
Since I am a nascent artist, I need to expose my art to the world before I think about making money out of it. I distributed my books free to many who love to read (and to some who were willing to read). Their appreciation uplifted my morale and motivated me to write more.
Q.14 What have you got in store for the readers next? Would you like to tell your fans what they should be looking forward to?
My upcoming projects are related to fictional work involving social reforms or a kind of a friendly gesture to Pakistan, our neighboring country.
It could turn controversial as it is involving the stories of those two countries whose enmity is more popular than its history. However, my sole intention is to eradicate differences and propagate love and unity.
I am an Artist and I believe in Harmony, Love, and Peace!
