Writer Ravinder Singh talks about his transition from working in an MNC to being a novelist
Ravinder Singh, writer
What was it like when you decided to give up your job with an MNC and become a full-time author?
I was anxious. There was fear in my heart — the fear of making a wrong choice. However, bigger than that was the leap of faith I had taken. To let go of a Fortune 100 company like Microsoft was an incredibly difficult choice, but then to live life on your own terms appeared to be a better choice. I never regretted it. Touch wood!
What do you enjoy the most about the process of writing a novel?
The fact that I relive a new life; that I give birth to something intangible.

Candies in Bandra. The place has a vibrant vibe, delicious food and a wide menu to pick from
