Interviewed, yet again!

Hello pals,

Global Asian Times took my interview recently and published it with the caption – Researcher looks for true love in All the Best, Baby

Here is a sneak peek of the interview:

Global Asian Times: Welcome to Global Asian Times, Karan. Tell us something about yourself not many people are aware of.

Karan Singh Surana:  Thank you. That’s a tricky way to start an interview but I shall try my best … I dreamt of being an astronaut back in the high school days. As I grew up, my direction kept changing year after year, and I finally landed up doing research in an area I always fancied, i.e. Solar Cells.

Global Asian Times: What made a technology buff turn to fiction?

Karan Singh Surana: Reading novels and positive mental attitude books has been a part of my adolescence. Most of the romance genre writers portray a great deal of sex in their novels which forced me to think: ‘Why can’t they write about feelings of being in true love?’ I started writing on that subject during my Master’s degree and finally wrapped a story around it.

CFL and Tea

A lazy Sunday afternoon

I was sipping tea while sitting peacefully under the fan with a glowing CFL for assistance imagining a conversation for an upcoming story.

I could see the moving reflection of CFL in the tea cup. The more I tried concentrating on the CFL, blurry became the tea and light was all I could see floating in the cup.

I shrugged off my vision and concentrated on the disco-dancing tea. Result was as you can expect. After few seconds I saw only the moving tea and the CFL reflection was too blurry to be noticed.

This is one of the fascinating facts about human mind.

Let’s correlate this teeny tiny observation with real life. Assume the Tea to be a Problem and the CFL to be a Solution (you can mark anyone as positive or negative or whatsoever pleases your imagination).

The more you concentrate on the Problem, all you will see is more of the problem and the Solution will be farther away from your vision.

The sooner you start concentrating on the Solution your problems will be shadowed and pushed into the background and the Solution is all that will prevail.

P.S. – The Tea was absolutely refreshing.

P.P.S. – I have published a post after quite a long time so please be kind to me and share your opinions.
