HYDERABAD: Either write something worth reading or do something that is worth writing. That is what upcoming writer Anirudh Bharadwaj chose to do when he set out to write his first book In Pain.
The author launched his book at a cultural space which was attended by Tollywood actor Siva Balaji, RJ Shiv and RJ Vamsi.
Speaking at the launch, actor Siva Balaji said, “Anirudh has proven his talent in our first meeting itself. There is pain in the title and I look forward to read it. I really appreciate his efforts and and his friend’s support to publish the novel. Youngsters must strive for perfection and I wish him luck and success to the novel.”
In Pain is a story which revolves around four characters-- Anirudh, Seshu, Abhi and Vineesha. It tries to show how loving someone can transform one’s life.
“I have always been a story-teller, I used to write stories when I was alone in school. And I chose to write the story in English in order to globalise it. I am a writer of emotions and not literature. Determination alone paved the path for my success,” says Anirudh. While the decision to take up wriiting is an easy one, getting published an uphill task. For many it can be a smooth process with very few bumps on the road, for others, it is a long time to reach frutition. For Anirudh, it was the latter scenario. “Writing the book was one step, publishing it was another leap. I approached a number of publishers in Mumbai and Delhi but was of no avail. So i decided to publish it myself. VPrensa publishers is the brain child of our group and I would like to encourage young writers to strive hard and achieve their passion.”
The novel, In Pain is available on Amazon.com at `199.
