‘Abyss’ was a book fair bestseller. Did you plan anything special for this book? What is the key to its success?
Abyss became the book fair best seller in the year 2014. It happened because of word-of-mouth publicity. I didn’t do anything special.

Have you received any literary awards? What are they?
As yet, I have not received any award except for the fact that I have been invited for many book reading sessions in Kolkata, Indore, Bangalore, Chennai and Pondicherry.
If you would like to share a memorable incident from your life which relates to your literary success.
Like, some of my readers have come up to me or written to me that my stories are a reflection of what happened to them in a specific incident and have not been able to share that with anybody. This in general I believe is deeply pleasing to an author because such validation is an empirical evidence of his/her authenticity.
