He discovered his love of writing at primary school, when a last bencher and shy student got unexpected attention just because of a story, and it was his english teacher who powered him with this skill of writing. It was the first time that he realised the power a storycould have. He wrote through school and university, but decided not to pursue it as a career because he didn’t have the confidence and was certain he would fail. It was only during the pandemic virus that he decided to publish his first book, a few months later, that he decided to stop being scared and really try. He wanted to show his friends that we should always work towards our goals, no matter how far off they seem or what the conditions are. In the lockdown, where he developed the idea for what would be his first published novel. The idea was quite unique and then he took another forward step towards the publishing procedure.
After graduating with a bachelor's of Literature degree, he searched for jobs but he didn't get any. In the end, he decided to start his life with a fresh beginning as a writer. Later, he wrote alot of books and articles. His most notable novel is The Golden Orion and as well as Brothers. His first published novel was TGO which he published through a publishing house in chattisgarh, evincepress.
In the beginning of his career, he faced alot of disappointment as no publishing company accepted his work, but he moved on and stayed consistent in writing. Because most of the publishing companies doesn't accept High fantasy works. His consistency proved fruitful when finally a publishing company from chattisgarh accpeted his high fantasy work.
