He is arguably the most successful writer of the new age India. His latest book has sold over 750,000 copies within a month already. I’ve neither read his books, nor are they on my wish list. I don’t know him personally and he has done me no harm. Yet, I hate him.
He is probably close to what I want to be. A best selling author, who’s writing style is nothing but colloquial. While I don’t agree to most of his views too, his story has to be nothing but a motivation to those million others like me who aspire to be best selling writers one day; instead, here I am passing judgements. My rational mind says look at him closely and understand the dynamics – but the ego doesn’t allow.
Being adamantly confident about yourself is probably one of the secrets to success. But letting your ego rule you in as much as you turn a blind eye to things around you isn’t going to turbo boost your dream machine.
