I thank my dearest Sri Di for nominating me for this award. I am really honored. Sri Di has been my constant source of encouragement and motivation. Nominated by her is something that I would cherish forever. 🙂
The question asked by her was:
1. What was that one sunshine moment in your life that you would like to recall again and again ?
Well, there are many sunshine moments in my life. So it is difficult for me to choose one. But I am left with no choice. I will select the recently happened sunshine moment of my life to answer this question. The journey of my novel ‘With love, forever’ began in 2011. With the plot of the entire story ready, I penned my first words in my personal diary. Since then I was driven by an ultimate goal- To complete the book and get it published. But it wasn’t an easy thing. I did not shape the story, but the story shaped me. It transformed from a third person narrative to a first person narrative. Then I tried my luck at publishing a few chapters as a series in Wattpad. The first draft was very amateurish. But even then it received tremendous response and I decided to revise the story completely. Three, four and five revisions. Yet I was unable to complete it. Amidst all this, I was fighting other demons of my life- studies, record works, projects, stress, etc., But I did not give up. Finally, I completed my cherished dream on July 24, 2015. I am still basking in the glory of finishing it. It has given me a sense of achievement, inner peace and happiness which I had been yearning for a long time. So I can very well consider it as that one sunshine moment of my life. 🙂 🙂 I am regardless of the outcome of my book, since the story is close to my heart and something which I deeply loved writing.
