Share a few lines on the importance of getting a mentor
Snehal Singh and Poonam Jain are the two people who guided me to write my book.
Initially it was a story with few pages. They guided me to expand my thoughts and creativity and also use good language.
Writing a story or a book is very exciting for me, yet I find it tricky to decide a name for the characters and that is also where my mentors were ready to handhold me.
Snehal Aunty helped me introspect myself and give shape to my thoughts.
Poonam Aunty also encouraged me immensely and shown faith in my thoughts. She appreciated my efforts and helped me with publishing. So I think mentors really help new writers like us.
Are you already writing another piece or planning one?
Yes I am writing another book and this one is the series of the book Fivab the journey to the unknown

Corona is a virus but the positive impact of this situation is that we are experiencing a different kind of life.
I am able to fruitfully use this time to chase my passion, I am also trying making new dishes with mom in the kitchen and also learning to make presentations for my dad.
It is fun to see that there is so much to do at home without getting bored.
