Author Highlight: Anuradha Prasad Discusses her Books and Stories from her Life

It’s time for another author interview. Today, with us, we have Anuradha Prasad, who currently lives in Mumbai, India. She is a prolific writer and blogger, who believes in treating her reader base with inspirational and success stories. In addition to writing, she loves traveling and exploring people, and watching movies in theaters. Let’s catch on more conversation…what she has for us today.

What is the genre of your book? (For example, fiction, poetry, fantasy, romance…)

I basically write inspirational stories, more broadly you can say success stories. Yes, it does not come in any of the above mentioned genre, but still those stories are kind of fiction. 

Please shed some light on your books.

I have written two books so far, and the third one is on its way to be published. The first two are, like how main characters fight through all odds to reach their goals. As I said earlier, characters put through a test to eventually achieve their destinations. 

The third one is a collection of soulful short stories based on human emotions. I am sure it will inspire readers as well as strike a chord with them emotionally. All the books are very close to my heart.

Where do you write from? Do you go to some specific country, state or city to write?

I write right from my home! From Mumbai!

How much time do you take to finish writing one book?

For my two previous books, I took exactly one year for each book.

What was your biggest learning experience throughout the publishing process?

Need to have perseverance and patience!

Looking back, what did you do right that helped you break in?

My writing is flawless. What I have is a flowing language. The depth of emotions and intensity are compelling. The characters are as real as they get. I think these things were right that helped me to break in!

On that note, what would you have done differently if you could do it again?

Nothing specific of any sort. I am quite happy with my work!

Any best piece of writing advice from your side that we haven’t discussed?

Be true to the story and to yourself. Put in all that you have and don't worry about the results.

Something personal about you people may be surprised to know?

I always dreamt to be a supermodel. Well, instead, I have become a super mom, wife, and writer.

What’s next?

I am working on my third book, Rain drops and Caterpillars. It is going to be a collection of interesting short stories.

Two of her prominent books:
Two Winters and 365 Days

Book Review: The Blue Umbrella by Ruskin Bond

Binya is a poor little girl living with her mother and an elder brother, Bijju, in a very small hilly village of Garhwal. One day while herding her two cows back home, she stumbles upon some city people enjoying the picnic in the valley. She is enthralled to see them rich and well-groomed. She craves to be one like them and among many other things of their, a blue frilly umbrella catches her attention. She begins craving for it. On the other hand, the city people get attracted by her innocent beauty and the pendant in her neck. The pendant consists of leopard’s claw – which is considered a mascot widely in the hills. Binya trades her pendant off with the blue umbrella.

The blue umbrella is so much beautiful that soon it becomes a topic of conversation for villagers and children adore her umbrella so much that every time they feel like to touch or hold it. Binya is on seventh heaven and rarely closes it because she believes it looks charming when it is opened.

Poem Summary: The Tale of Melon City by Vikram Seth

The Tale of Melon City by Vikram Seth is a humorous poem about a king who is just opposite the terms ‘just and placid’. Rather the king is excited about everything in his kingdom.

The poem is about one hasty decision of king that costs him his life. He orders to build an arch from where he can instruct the spectators. Well, the construction of the arch goes awry, as when the king stands, the arch being built too low, it touches the crown and as a result it falls down. Falling of the crown is a matter of insult for the king, thus he orders to hang the chief of the builders. Noose and gallows are prepared. The crowd is ready to witness the convict go lifeless. But just in time the chief of builder blames the workmen for fault. Next the workmen are taken to the death penalty; they too cry aloud saying that this is the mistake of a mason. The mason is then put next for the death punishment; well he passes the blame on the architecture. Well, the architecture being a clever guy says that …

Story Summary: The Accidental Tourist by Bill Bryson

The Accidental Tourist by Bill Bryson is a short story that highlights the importance of having suave and elegant manners at the time of travelling. In this story, we see that the narrator almost flies over 100,000 miles every year because of his job’s nature. So, we can say that the narrator is an accidental tourist, though he doesn’t enjoy travelling but still he has to because of his job. However in his own words he says that he is sort of a confused man who often forgets the roads and gets into wrong alleys or gets trapped into self-locking doors. In this story, he takes us to some of his awry travel experiences where he did some crazy things, though unwittingly.
Most of his experiences are based around airports or inside the flights. On one instant, while flying to England from Boston with family for Christmas, he forcibly opened the zip of his bag, as a result it broke down and all the stuff littered on the ground. This made him embarrassed and the people around him.
One day in…
