The reason to write...

My sole intention behind writing is to learn as much as possible by writing as much as possible. And then learn, write and then learn again, write again... I hope the learning continues, and, hence, the writing. If there is something that fills my bucket, which can be either fiction or non-fiction, I will gladly undertake it.

The inspiration behind my writing comes from my interaction with Hindu mythology. I believe mythology does not just offer us historical events but, rather, a set of valuable lessons that are often interwoven within the details. Past events offer great wisdom for future generations. Once those teachings are realized, we understand that the bad happened for a very good reason. Thus, we are constantly being haunted by the bad so as to get motivated to do good. We are fortunate to have all these Hindu Vedic teachings in the form of ancient scriptures—Smrithis, Shrithis, Upanishads and Puranas. Many ancient Hindu sages handed over these valuables through their divine vision so that we have guidance readily available to us in every walk. If they are to be ignored, we are losing out on the treasure of our lifetime.

That being said, the thirst for learning is ever-growing with this tremendous source of axioms left at our disposal. The deeper we go, the more we find that there is more to learn—infinity learning, as I call it. There is no chance for boredom, as each level of knowledge pushes us to the next as we crave more.
