Writer's Voice

I started to write about positive living in 2017 and there is no looking back.  Writing lets expressions fly without boundaries. I realise writing is an endless adventure and I enjoy every bit of it.

Despite the corporate experience, I missed something important in his life. It was fulfilment. I connected the dots and began my writing journey. It was a big decision.

Every day, I learn something by writing. Little did I realise that I will write for a living.

Book Reviews from Amazon

I expected the book to be a work of fiction. At the end, I am surprised to find that the book raised lots of questions within me. The concept of 'Oneness' that the author talks about, though discussed by many before, is fresh here, with anecdotes to bolster the idea. The author has skillfully woven the experience of two friends into making his idea clear. This will make many people caught in the slumber of their work wake from their stupor. Continue writing, dear author.

This book is a reminder for me to follow my dreams. At different points in the story, I can relate myself with either Aditya (who wanted to travel) or Sameer (whose dream took a back seat). The book clearly communicates that it is highly important to respect our dreams and find some way to achieve it. Give it a read and I'm sure it will be an eye-opener for many. I thank the author Vinayak for being a wayfinder in our unknown trails.

I follow Vinayak's work and being a bit of a book-worm myself, am glad (and feel) he made the book so very easy for even a beginner to finish reading without much of an effort. The pages moved so quick with cool/simple narration by Aditya (chief character in the book) of his spiritual trip to and fro Himalayas. Looking forward to read more of his works..

The author has written in such a way that the readers would identify themselves as either Aditya or Sameer (the lead characters) at some point in the story. I read the book at one go. It's crisp. This book is for all those who have lost their dream/ goal due to circumstances. This book might motivate you to get back on track and follow your dream.

Excellent job Vinayak. Thoroughly loved the book. I read the kindle version of this book on my phone and was totally engrossed in reading that at one point i was searching for my telephone without realising that it was in my hand. I would recommend this book to anyone who's seeking answers to questions about what matters really in life and beyond that. A must read.
