First, before we move forward with our Author's Interview, I would like to start with an introduction. 

1. Could you please introduce yourself to us?
I am from Kolkata, West Bengal, India. Grew up in Kolkata and Siliguri. A PGDM Graduate and a working professional in the Banking and Finance Sector. His first book, "Every Frame is a Painting" published by Novel Nuggets. Second book published by Juggernaut: Love, Realization and The World of Today - A collection of Poems.

2. Congratulations on your book. So what inspired you to write this book?
For me to write, The Paradise Conflict, I have taken quite a few inspirations from the real-world issues and storytelling techniques. From the real world, I have taken the inspiration of the water crisis and environmental exploitation at its core all around the globe by setting the political background of a Totalitarian regime with inspiration from George Orwell’s 1984. The main motive of the rebels in the book is to restore Mother Nature back to its roots with a balance of belongingness. 2019 Amazon Rain Forest – I have mentioned vaguely as the Great Fire; Smog and Air Pollution problems all around the major metropolitan cities – In the book, I have mentioned it as the Great Smoke like the Delhi Pollution; Water management issues in the developing countries – In the book, I have pushed the events further, if there is an extreme case of availability of water and put under control by a Totalitarian; Water management issues in the developing countries – In the book, I have pushed the events further, if there is an extreme case of availability of water and put under control by a Totalitarian Regime, similar to that of Big Brother from George Orwell’s 1984!
3. What is the book all about?
It is a sci-fi story, set in an unknown future, with the central theme of the water crisis and environmental degradation. It is the story where the Civil Imperial Regime has taken control over the remaining freshwater resources and imposed strict laws. Any unauthorized person or a commoner wants to drink or use water in case of emergency or thirst, will be shot dead or put into labor camps. On the other side, the rebels are fighting for mother nature, to bring back mother earth to it's a natural course filled with flora and fauna and save the commoners from the atrocious laws created by the Imperial Regime. 
4. Why did you choose this genre for your book?
Sci-Fi is always my favorite genre. I have added social issues, environmental issues, water crisis, humanity's greed and conflict made me compel to tell a story.
5. How much time did it take to complete this book?
Nearly a year.
6. What makes your Book Special?
Speaking about nature makes me this book special to me. This is also the first time, where I have worked on character buildup or an arc. For example. Mitra's arc was to take revenge against the rebel leaders, as he learns the truth, he joins the rebel, and on his way for the redemption of himself. Judy's arc first she was a rebel spy, collecting information from the Imperials and supplies all the info to the rebel leader, Gayatri. She is a great fighter, an expert in hand to hand combat, she feels for the people. She believes in togetherness. After the death of Gayatri, she had to become the leader but she has doubts about herself. She has to become on her own to be a true leader for the rebels. Both, Mitra and Judy are the heart of the story.
7. When is your second book coming?
Not yet decided. I have some plots in my mind, most probably a gritty, grounded, corporate espionage thriller.
8. While writing did you get any writer's block? What is the Tip that you will give others who are facing writer's block?
Yes. I try to read the structuring of storytelling techniques - Syd Field's Screenplay and The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell to recover from the writers' block.
9. Apart from being a talented author, what are your other hobbies?
I like to do photography, mostly travel photography.
10. Last but not the least, How did you feel, while giving this interview?
