“I love writing stories since childhood. And you can say that villages have lot of raw material for writers. But even though I belonged to a village, my father never let me live in it. May be this was the reason why I always longed to live in a village,” says Girindranath.
The narration of this sweet transition is well elaborated in Girindranath’s book, Ishq Mein Mati Sona, which was launched by the famous journalist Ravish Kumar and became a bestseller in Hindi.
“We have a misconception that a village is a sad place. However it is the same as cities. Don’t you people get disheartened when you don’t get your incentives? Aren’t there ups and downs in the lives of urban people? It’s the same with villages. There are ups and downs, there is sadness but there is fun as well. You need to experience that to know your villages,” says Giridranath.
