Q & A with Arpit Vageria the author of You are My Reason to Smile
Arpit Vageria writes scripts for Indian television for a living and writes romance stories for the love of it.
We ask Arpit a few questions about his writing, love, friendship and the challenges he faced while writing.
Q 1. How would you introduce your book Be My Perfect Ending?
A. We all run behind stories that have happy endings, right? Be My Perfect Ending in totality breaks the myth that demands every story to have a happy ending. Sometimes all you need is a relatable story.
When people ask me how it is different from all other stories in the market, I just say one thing – There is not even in a single situation or line in the book where you would feel that the author is forcefully trying to impress you. After some pages, the book’s character would start speaking with you and at times, your instinct would answer. But that’s where the whole suspense/thrill of the book lies, when you think you know the answer and you don’t.
Q 2. You’ve also written for best of the Indian Television shows and award functions, how much does that help you in novel writing?
A. I am an author first and a television writer after that. My sensibility is more of an author than a television writer, but still it helps. Television allows me to bring the funny side within me alive. It helps me in a hell lot of things in a book, especially when I am trying to create a comedy situation in a book or writing some light banter between the characters.
Q 3. Almost every book of yours is a bestseller, how do you make it possible? How do you choose the topic of any book?
A. I just try and write the stories that need to be told. Many won’t believe, but many of my novels are inspired from the one line that some or other of my dreams has given me. All of us see dreams in the night, but I write them down and that’s been my practice in all the books that I’ve written in the past.
I don’t sit and think of a story intentionally, but I wait for the story to come to me.
There’s one common email that I get from hundreds of readers every week and all of them say – It looks like you’ve written down our own story. For them, it’s their own story and probably that’s the reason why they prefer to read them all.
The main reason behind them being a bestseller is the love that I get from the readers from all across the nation.
Q 4. How much do you read?
A. I don’t fix any target for reading as such, but I still love reading lots of books, whenever I get time. If someone would ask me to go on a romantic date and someone else would allow me to read books, I would probably fall in love with the latter person more.
Books allow me to travel the world, be a different person at a different time, love somebody else’s life for those few hours and give me a learning of a lifetime. I can trade everything to keep it like this forever. Books are life-changing.
Q 5. Any advice for budding authors?
A. Read, read, but most importantly, READ. Also please READ. Last thing – READ.
