(Journey of ‘Title is Untitled’ – Part 4)
This is in continuation to series of article (Read: Journey of Title is Untitled – Part 1, My would be (husband) raped me! and Dilwale Dulha le Jayenge) to give insights for aspiring writers how the book evolved. I met a person through my first book Adhuri Prem Kahaniya that he liked and wanted to share his personal story. I spent days thinking about his story but it didn’t evoke my inner calling to write initially on a topic that wasn’t my cup of tea. While running through TV channels I saw ads on perfume, Amul Macho inner wear and others that fell into the categories that spoke a language of fantasy for me. I started to read articles and research publications that described fantasies. It was one of uncomfortable zone that I ever wondered to read and write. Writing every bit took large amount of reading, questioning the reasoning behind such fantasy and scribble single liner took weeks. I personal wanted to treat the issue of fantasy with utmost care that gives message rather than make it odd for readers. I hope to have succeed in doing so.
