Karm Yogi

Karmyogi is one such book which talks about choosing the right path, even if one has suffered a lot and is a victim of injustice in life. How one step in the wrong direction can make your life miserable..

Shivansh, the protagonist, suffered through everything but still kept the fight on. It's very easy to get distracted on the wrong path, if life has not been fair with you.

We as humans justify our wrong deeds by playing the victim card.

It's important to stick to your virtues and principles even in the toughest of times.

“In our Journey of life, we meet different people. Some good, some bad. But have you realised that nobody is entirely good or entirely bad. It's not and black and white, it's all gray. We all have some good and bad inside us. It all depends on our own mind set which side we want to nurture. ”

An interview with the author

We had a small interview with Shri Ramesh Arreja, Some portions of the interview is added for our visitors.

Actually it's a mix of Mythology with fiction. Not entirely based on mythology but few excerpts worth retelling are taken and a story is created around it. I always had an inclination towards Mythology since childhood when I used to hear stories from Lord Shiva, Ganesha, Lord Ram and many more. It always intrigued me. My first book "Extraordinary fate of an Ordinary Man, A man in a prejudiced world" is also of the same genre.

I am a nature lover. I find solace when I am close to nature. My writing journey too started when I was posted at Goa in 2017. It started with an Academic book "The Number Crunchers" then progressed towards Fiction " Extraordinary fate of an Ordinary Man" and a few Anthologies I have contributed to.

I am a firm believer of related Stories and writing. As a writer I am always inclined to writing stories that are realistic and resonate with readers. If you see reviews of my last novel, almost every reader has mentioned this point that they felt as if they were living the life of the protagonist. Karmyogi is no different.

Publishers are gonna kill me for this. But having experienced the same I feel there is a lack of transparency, an author does not know how many copies are sold. There is always some manipulation in it. With self-publishing, I can invest the money saved on marketing and reach a greater reader base.

I have been learning screenwriting for quite some time now. Finished writing a story for a web series. Though I'm new to it, I have learned quite a few lessons. My advice to aspiring writers would be to have patience. Don't rush things. While creating characters you have to dive deep into their life and bring out the gems. You have to show the internal struggles, the conflicts and the resolution, especially while writing a web series. It's a constant learning process.
