Your learnings from this writing journey. How do you plan your topic and write the article? 

Writing journey taught me to communicate with myself and to me, writing means to deliver the ideas on to a paper. I prefer choosing topics from the practical aspect of life, happening around us . Whenever I choose a topic, first I write down all the points that I can or want to cover in the topic. Then, I set its sequence and finally, start writing.

Steps that you take to improve your writing skills?

Reading more and more books and articles. I also follow critical instructions and guidelines shared by my mentors or teachers. These have been helpful in improving my writing skill.

You recently wrote an article on ‘Significance of being an early riser’. What inspired you to pick this topic?

The pandemic-led lockdowns jeopardised daily routine for many. Especially people working from home worked for longer hours and there has been no physical separation between work and home. And till date, I feel there are a few, who have not been able to get back into routine. For instance, they sleep till late. I chose this topic simply because I felt like there is the need to make people aware how important and beneficial it is to rise up early.

Are you an early riser? What are the benefits of rising early have you experienced?

Yes, I am an early riser. I feel fresh and active the whole day if I wake up early. Also, it’s the best time to connect to God and this I have mentioned in my article.

What is your idea of an ideal morning?

My idea of an ideal morning is to wake up at Brahma Muhurta, pray to God, do exercise or yoga, plan for the day, followed by a healthy breakfast.
