Author Interview - Mehul Dave discusses about his books and thoughts on life

I am an entrepreneur by soul and writer by passion. I started very early into the business arena and launched my IT/ERP company when I was 28 years old. Since then life has been a roller coaster ride with a lot of ups and down for me but earned some amazing experiences which I treasure as achievements. 
Writing was something I tested in my younger days but it took a serious passion after Facebook came into existence and I started posting extempore on Facebook. “Rooh” is my first published book on poetry. My achievement for the book is that it has been overwhelmingly received and praised by readers. I was also lucky to get reviews on ‘Rooh” from famous writer/poet, Shree Munnawar Rana ji. Rooh is not just a book but accumulated treasure of emotions and feelings of humans, which everyone will experience while reading it. 
In an interview to TALKTOBLOGGER.COM, Mehul Dave gets talking about his books, readers, roaring success, and of course his thoughts on life! Catch the interesting conversation here!
What motivates you to write?
       I am an emotional person, experiencing emotions in every bit and corner of human interactions. I get motivated as soon as any stimuli of emotion touches me, and I start writing extempore over any gadget/means that is in my hand, be it laptop or mobile or a piece of paper.
What was the feeling when your first book got published? How did you handle that moment of glory and self-pride, were people supportive or something else?
       It was like a baby born after the labour pain of more than nine months. It was actually also at that point a numb feeling when I got the first copy in my hand. I couldn’t figure out how I should react. I always had this dream to get my book up on shelves in the stores one day and the day that happen I was spell bound and felt like crying for some moments. All my friends and family were amazed when they got to know about my book as I had kept it under secrecy from every one. The best moment was when I gave my book in my mother’s hand and saw her in tears of happiness and pride.
How do you take writing novels, as a career or hobby or between both?
It’s a passion and a habit now for me, I would like it to take its own course and shape up. Also I feel there is a huge contribution of how your writing is being taken by the readers. The more you get appreciated and recognition the more you become passionate about it. So keeping my fingers crossed.  
For your books you must be doing a lot of research topics and themes. How did you go about it?
       Well since my book is on poetry it was all about expression of emotions and yes I did some study about the presentation and expression of other writers and poets to see that I was not going off- track despite of having a unique way of expression as people have pointed out for me. Also as I said I am an extempore writer I care more about getting my thoughts penned down in a way which could reach to my readers as I want it to reach touching their right cord.       
What is the best aspect about your writing that you love most?
       I always write what I feel from within and try to keep it less of jargons so that everyone could understand and feel it. Another best aspect if you ask is that the readers tell me they relate with what- ever I write. They experience a nostalgia in my writings as if it is something written about them and their life experiences. I think that’s the biggest reward a writer or poet can get if the readers could relate to it.
Is getting published traditionally tough? Share your views.
       Yes publishing is a lengthy process and tedious at times. But I think every big thing in life or any big project is big because it is not easy to be achieved. And it’s always better if you could get a mentor to guide you in the process. 
Tell us about your recently published book or the upcoming book?
       My book “Rooh” is “Poetic Journey of a Soul” as described. It is not just a book but accumulation of emotions and feeling in human beings. Rooh is sure to touch every reader in some way or other. I can guarantee that some lines or pages of “Rooh” will place you spell bound and you will think how Rooh could know so much about you in first place.       
My next book which I am writing is about a very common topic but it is going to help people very differently. It’s about overcoming the down trend of life in some amazing easy ways. I would introduce and bring attention of people to certain human things which we have forgotten and which could be brought back to turn life into a successful, happy and fulfilling experience.
There are many new writers out there who are aspiring to get their work published. What would you say to them? 
There is always a start to every-thing. Even the stalwarts of today were starters of yesterday. So take that first step and start, as some-one has said, “Beginning is half done”. I would advise every upcoming writer to forget about the hassles and difficulties which are staring at you in the path, just go for it, face it, and seize the opportunity.
