Tell us something about yourself

Bohemian by nature, Rapper by Passion, Story-Teller by Soul, and Wanderlust, I want to explore the intersection of philosophy and psychology. I like to call myself smartly dumb, genius moron, dynamically stubborn and occasionally an engineer. Die-hard fan of fictional characters- Sheldon Cooper, Chandler Bing, Charlie Harper, Daenerys Targaryen, Barney Stinson, Joey Tribianni and Tyrion Lannister.

What is writing to you- Passion or Profession or both?

It has been my passion to which I have now completely converted into Profession.

When did you realize that you should be writing books?

Since I was 11 years old, I have been writing personal diary as a hobby to note down almost all the things that I feel is important for my future life. Then I joined College & came to a bigger platform of writing where I started earning as a Freelancer. The blog was the first initiative to showbiz me where I put the College life Experience & Nostalgic Feelings. I finally made my author’s website & started blogging there (Philosophical & Motivational Articles).

I was deeply interested in Philosophy & knowing the ‘Reality of Life’ since my father is a philosopher by nature. I liked to read the contents which were full of sarcasms & Osho proved to be the one of the primary motivator for my writing path.

Were you prepared for this domain then? Or was it like that you realized it and then started learning?

Yes, I was prepared and I knew that I would be considered naïve. But, I just wanted to do it. Trust me, I am happy with every decision I have made.

It said that investment in any kind of creativity brings laurels to the investor. What do you think about it as you are investing your time in writing?

I want to be humble about it but glad to have achieved a pinnacle, I call my laurel saying, “Just type ‘Bhavik Sarkhedi’ on Google and you will know who I am.” Investing my time (past and present) has paid me off really nice.

Tell us about your both books. Which one is your personal favorite?

"The Weak Point Dealer" is a delightful collection of Short Stories that includes the genre: Endurance, Fortitude, Motivation, Love, Revenge & much more. Stories are portrayed in such a way that it depicts how an ideal person breaks the barrier & drop the drawbacks one faces in the coincidental circumstances of life. This book conveys an audacious pathway about what should one do to come out from the deterrent situations & live an immaculate cum spunky life. The Weak Point Dealer is everyone who wants to excel in the life cracking the feeble points. Cutting long stories short, this book is about a dealer who tackles the negativity & obstacles faced in an unpredictable moment of the life.

Will You Walk a Mile is a Metaphysical fictional love story of a 21st century boy and a 22nd century girl. This Metaphysical fiction focuses on the ‘Social Changes’ prevailing today. A group of people living in 22nd century is cursed by ‘Antephant’ & is forced to live in the 21st century to find the answers of some mysterious questions. ‘Will You Walk a Mile?’ is a question asked to the society by this group & simultaneously a romantic array of conversation between the two generations.

If I have to choose between the two of my own books, I will choose my romantic novel as I feel that I have improved a lot while writing the second one.

What do you think is the scope of writing in the coming days?

Writing is a creative skill; making it as a career comes with the hard road but it has a variety of sectors. Blogging, Digital Marketing, Technical Writing, Publishing, etc. are the emerging fields nowadays.

Any tips for our readers who might be interested in getting involved in the same domain.

The generation is fast, you know- people are running like anything to go behind some unknown mysterious fruit. Luck matters but only after the hard work stuffs. Everything happens for a reason but trust your intuition & believe your guts.
