A Researcher by Destiny, an Author by Passion and a Wanderer by Choice- completely defines G. Mehul Krishna Kumar. He was born and brought up in Port Blair, India and has completed his education by being in a remote territory spread across the Bay of Bengal. Currently working in as a government servant in Andaman and Nicobar Administration and even enduring the task of a part time lecturer in Department of BBA, JNRM College, he is swiftly progressing in the field of research. He is a researcher in Travel and Tourism Management with research papers presented on various international platforms and has even published them on repute journals. He is a reviewer for Elsevier journal. Destiny may have carved a Researcher out of him but the real passion to write transformed him into an author. The belief of penning down things thus makes stories have resulted in the production of his debut novella Lucid Dreams: Let’s Redefine Love.
LUCID DREAMS: Let’s Redefine Love, tells the tale of Aman Kumar aka AK- who is a rockstar by profession and like any sadist musician has a heart that was once broken badly by a girl named Reshmi Pandey. This is the story of two lovers who were destined to stay apart. Their dream of being together is tested high by the hard hitting facts of life. A love story that involves the emotions of their family and friends results in a rollercoaster ride that comes to an end when a lucid dreamer arrives and makes things looks perfect. The ending may give you a perfect family to rejoice but every perfect family has a brutal past that stands on sacrifices made by the ones they loved.
Life is a like a pendulum which keep oscillating to and fro, at times you are at your best and sometimes you’re at the atrocity of worst. I have no regrets for the losses I encountered and gradually there are no records to the profits I made. I feel being at the pinnacle of highs makes me humble while the uncertainties of low prove me to be human.
In simple sense if I recollect the time when I was writing my debut book, I would say it was a narrow escape from the realities of life. The pressure that life exerts at you can only be conquered by the passions that you hold within. For me it resulted in indentifying a storyteller in me, perhaps this is only the beginning and the best is yet to come.
What does writing mean to you and how are you going to take it ahead in your life.
I have never been a good reader; will I ever be a good writer? I may never have an answer to this self introspecting question but yeah can say that the time I write is one of the best moments in my life, as it gives me a completely control of the story I create.
Talking about my future prospects as a writer, well if you haven’t read my book yet then you must because this futuristic question is inscribed well in the pages of Lucid Dream’s: Let’s Redefine Love.
In this short span of life I live to survive, learn to love and write to lead.
Every tale has a positive and a negative side of it. I believe let’s just celebrate the good ones and kill the bad. My journey as a writer has just begun and I am enjoying every bit of it. No matter if the track is good or bad but I am pretty sure that the final destination will definitely be the best.
I believe a well-behaved, too practical people are hopeless writers and honestly, terribly boring. I aspire to read everything my hands could lay on and recommend others to do the same because a good reader will always be a better writer.
