Blogger interview series – Parul Thakur

Blogger interview series - Parul Thakur

I have always believed that humanizing individuals is a great way to understand what they think and what makes them click. In keeping with this philosophy, I have regularly interviewed authors  from different walks of life over the last few years.

And now continuing this theme, I begin a blogger interview series. My first guest is a full-time HR professional during the day and blogger after calls in the night. A working homemaker who hates cleaning and can hardly cook, she is also a family photographer and life lover. She spreads happiness all around through her lovely posts with an aptly named blog – Happiness & Food.

Ladies & Gentleman, welcome Parul Thakur.

Aseem: What inspired you to begin blogging?
Parul: It was the start of 2013 and New Year hadn’t brought anything great. At least, on the face of it. I was on bed rest and unable to walk or stand. Negligence had led to an extremely weak back and I was on the verge of a spine surgery. That was when I realized I need happiness to pull me up from my condition.

I needed to be positive and I had a picture of me cycling. I logged onto WordPress, created a blog and posted the picture. That was the start of happiness and food. Food because that too meant happiness. I had always wanted to pen down my writings at one place and with only a half-hearted attempt way back, this was the one I need to put my soul into.

Nishant Kaushik is the bestselling author of Watch Out! We are MBA, A Romance with Chaos, Conditions Apply and My Father is a Hero. He keeps a day job with Infosys Limited and currently lives in Australia. You can find him on Twitter.

He joins us for a quick tete-a-tete.

Aseem: How does it feel to be the author of multiple bestsellers?

Nishant: I am not yet content. Bestseller is an ambiguous term, because as well as your books sell, they can always sell more. I keep working towards that.

Aseem: How different is writing novels when compared to blogging? Do you like one above the other?

Nishant: I prefer writing novels (I am not a very regular blogger). When I write novels I get a chance to escape the real world and delve into the alternate universe my characters inhabit. That journey is something I relish, and I don’t get to experience it while blogging.

Blogging Connects..

There was a time when we had to spend hundreds of rupees to call someone anywhere in India let alone the world. Mobile phones were a rarity and a luxury as well. And the most famous one was Nokia (referred to as a brick by many because of its weight).

But today, technology has changed our perspective of the world around us in more ways than one. Whether its exploring the latest news or meeting and interacting with new people, finding jobs & perfect matches or building careers in music and writing, the online world gives each of us a great platform to do all this and more.
