Author Article: Dr. Madhumita Mandal

Hello author, on behalf of all the readers, we would like to discuss something about you and of course, your book as well.  This conversation will help reader to know more about you and your debut book.

Criticspace: Most welcome to Criticspcae, Author. We heartily congratulate you for being a published author. It’s really a great achievement. First thing, we would like to know about your basic info as a person, daily life, career so far and anything you would like to share about you with your readers.

Author: I consider myself to be a thinker, intellectual adventurer, doctor, and now as an author. Born in a middle class family where my mother is a home maker and father a retired government official. I was brought up in the city famous for oranges i.e. Nagpur. After doing graduation in the medical side, I have worked in various domains of healthcare sector. I have a penchant for reading novels, books, and writing stories.

At present, working in a company, managing family, and writing passionately.

Criticspace: That’s really great; please tell us something about your journey of becoming an author. When you actually started writing and how was the circumstance? Did any person or situation influenced you to write your debut book or was it your childhood hobby of writing?

Author: I lifted pen to write around 3 years back. Though, I have this writing bug hidden in me, it emerged quite late on the paper. In my book-writing journey, I felt it is time consuming process which drains a lot of energy but at the same time gives a sense of accomplishment. I get inspiration from the people around me and the culture, norm prevalent. I really get my booster inspiration dose from the world around me; including lots of tiny little interactions. My all time favorite books are -The Alchemist, Dairy of a young girl and Blink.

I used to read everything under the sun. But off-late, I have restrained myself from reading mythological novels as I want to go through the original scripts or epics first… it’s just to avoid swaying with the manipulated ones. Rest romance, thrillers, drama all comes under my reading domain.

Criticspace: Please tell the reader something about your book. What is your message to those readers who have still not read the book? Why they should pick it up for reading?

Author: The “Invisible Me” book decodes a peculiar and puzzling human behavioural trait- right from its manifestation to its impact with the aid of beautifully woven stories.

Too often we want to categorize people into all good or all bad, ethical or unethical, nice or jerk.  We all do this to some extent. Don’t we interact with a new person and walk away from the interaction making some claim that the person is either nice or not, good or bad, kind or cruel, and so forth? But the reality is that people are pretty complicated….very complicated! We often see only a small slice of their nature at any one time….sometimes a pleasing slice and sometimes… not so much. There are layers upon layers upon layers of complexity to all of us. Our up-bringing, cultural influences, mindset and instincts all play a role.

“The Invisible Me” is published by NotionPress and comprising of chapters covered in approx…272 pages. It costs around Rs.340 on platforms like Amazon. in, NotionPress, Flipkart, and Infibeam. For international print versions – and; the price will vary. Those who like digital platforms can avail the book at Amazonkindle, kobo, Google play and iBooks; the price will vary.

Criticspace: And yes, the most important thing we would like to hear from you is -what is your message to those new writers who have not yet started their journey of becoming an author? You have been their source of motivation; please convey your thoughts with them.

Author: I would recommend all aspiring writers to do your research work and self-evaluation well. It’s easy to say “I want to be a writer” –it’s MUCH more difficult to carve out some time from your daily work. I would say “get all things finalize first or in other words- carve an outline,” followed by “start by writing.” That’s the only way I know of to get rolling, and it gives you a clear road map of where you are going and what to work on next. With an outline, writing becomes a question of tackling a series of short stories that, when strung together, become a coherent work. Not only creative writing but promotions on platforms like Facebook and Twitter have become equally important. So, plan well and get into it!

Criticspace: That’s really great! We wish you all good luck for your literary career.
