He chose love, heartbreak, and life as a genre of his poems. Being an average student in school, apart from writing, he was also a football lover. He deeply enjoys riding and often meanders from place to place to find some soulful inspiration for his poems. Being a science student, he always wanted to fulfill his father’s desire of seeing him become a successful doctor.

But, again, like every other Indian boy’s story, it seemed like destiny had already planned his way into a different direction.

That later on turned into the idea of writing the book, “Tum Apni si Lagti Ho”. This came when he felt the need to connect with people through his words.

‘Shayad Ab bhi Zinda hu’ – A book by Udaipurite Kavish Tandon

Kavish Tandon has done his engineering from CTAE College and his MBA from Symbiosis, Pune. Somewhere amidst all this, he had a passion for writing which lead him towards writing his first book ‘Shayad Ab bhi Zinda hu’.

The book includes a collection of Poetry and Ghazals. Kavish has tried not to bind himself with a specific expression but wrote poems on varied topics based on instances that touched his life deeply. He has written the book in 7 milestones of life that influenced his writings. Ghutne chalti tukbandiiyaan, bade hoke kya banoge, college ke din, aur pyaar ho gya, daur ghazalon ka, gahr se door, ab theharna chahta hun and mazilein parayi haein to name them.

Though it’s a book of poetry, while you move along these milestones, it reveals a story which relates to your own story in many instances. The cover and the sketches with each poem makes it so real and lively that it clearly reflects what the poem has to say. They are all designed by Dr. Richa Sharma Tandon, wife of Kavish, who is a doctorate in Extension in Communication.

Hello Udaipur: Says Chetan Bhagat

Chetan Bhagat in Udaipur

As we informed you all that the most famous Indian authors among the youth, Mr. Chetan Bhagat is in Udaipur. His stellar education and diverse professional background makes him the ideal person to share his thoughts and experiences on topics such as leadership, passion, values, team building, motivation, achieving goals etc. Yesterday, on 1st Oct 2011 he was there to speak at the Gandhi Ground, where he spoke about his success story and delivered an inspiring motivational speech in front of the huge audience, most of which comprised of the students from Udaipur.

He spoke that most of us want to get success in our life, but we do realize in older ages that success is the not only requirement, but happiness is the utmost requirement one must earn from his life. Speaking about his story, he said that his efforts were constantly crushed by the publication houses, etc, when a time came that even his family lost belief in him. He said that one must always keep a faith on himself. One must try and try till the success is achieved.

He also said that a student can be comparatively more successful if he learns a few things.

  • English, for better language skills, as it is preferred worldwide
  • Good communication skills
  • Marketing
  • Finance

In the end he said that a person owes his society, his nation. Therefore, one must give a payback to the society, and contribute to it, for better development of tomorrow. It is not only our voluntary will but also our duty.

The entire evening was greatly inspiring. A number of guests were present at the moment, including Mr. Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar, Prof. I.V. Trivedi, Mr. R.S. Vyas, Mr. Rahul Agrawal, etc. As his new book, Revolution 2020 is rolling out by next week in the market, and is awaiting a launch, Team UdaipurBlog wishes him All the Best. May his book once again be a bestseller and rule the hearts worldwide.

Check out few snaps of the awesome evening by Mujtaba R.G. and Yash Sharma
