Interview with Sapan Saxena Author of “Finders, Keepers”

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself ,your blog(s)/website(s),and your aspirations and your hobbies!!

My name is Sapan Saxena and I am a Software Engineer who graduated from MNNIT Allahabad in 2008. I took up to writing blogs on behest of my father, who felt I should share whatever I learn with others. I write blogs on Ancient Indian history and mythology, and some of them got published in leading news websites like Times of India and Hindustan Times. When some of my blog followers prompted me to write a book, I took up writing one and the product is now available for all to read.
My blog:
Book website:
My other hobbies include reading and dancing. I would like to share with others whatever I learn about Indology, be it through books or blogs

2. How you first got involved in with blogging/writing, are you an imaginative person?
In my art classes, I would always draw the best possible idea as the worst possible outcome. And a similar case for my handwriting. So, yeah, I think I am a creative and imaginative person. An idea initially stuck me and then I started building a story around it, and that’s how I started writing “Finders, Keepers”

3. What do you find most challenging about blogging/writing about your topic?
The biggest challenge I faced was that in the topic of Indology, there is a very thin line between an interesting revelation and becoming preachy. History is not what many people easily get interested in. People are interested in mythology, but then the moment it gets boring, people switch off your blog. So, the challenge comes in keeping it crisp when doing blogs.
When doing novels, the story has to be powerful; otherwise it will all fall apart for you

4. Tell me about some of the people you have met while working on your blog?
A lot of my research was online as well as offline. And as it mostly concerned Hindu mythology and ancient Indian history, I often visited online portal Hindu Dharma Forums. In there, you find guys who have spent years learning and practicing about various sects of Hinduism. It’s always a great learning experience to interact with them.
Offline I mostly visited heritage sites and mostly interacted with guides to squeeze out as much as I could. They pretty much speak some recorded stuff, but the information they gave was really helpful as they do incorporate local tales and stories related to some legend

5. How would (someone) describe your blogging/writing style?
People say my writing style is descriptive. Though they claim I am able to hold the attention of the reader till the very end. Though I aim to trust the intelligence of the reader, there are pieces which need detailed description.

6. What do you do when you are not working on your novel?
Well, I am a Software Engineer by profession, so when I am not busy creating a fictional world out of my imagination, I am usually creating a JAVA program to run on a virtual environment on my laptop

7 .Where do you see yourself blogging/writing wise in the next 6 months, and 5 years down the road?
After 3 years of blogging and months into publication of first novel “Finders, Keepers”, I can now safely assume that writing is an addiction. And even a single appreciation coming your way gives you a high no drug can emulate. So, in the next 6 months, I think I will be writing more blogs and working on future ideas for novel. 5 years down the road, I would want to explore more of Hinduism and Indian history touching subjects which others have either missed or dared not to ponder, as I think before writing such subjects, I would need to have more acceptances among readers.

8. What networking do you do that you feel helps your writing business?
I think that’s one area where I have had a huge unplanned investment, and that of course, has helped me a lot. I was a lot into social media even when I had not penned my first blog. This helped me discover friends from other cities and colleges and companies. Eventually as we shared and joined similar pages suggested mutually, the friend circle grew even further.  I also made it a point to keep in touch with wherever I worked. During last elections, I also joined a non-political group to spread awareness about benefits of voting. So, this online and offline networking has helped me maintain a huge plethora of friends from diverse backgrounds, locations, regions and interests. They help me in spreading my content, and that eventually helps a lot

9. How do you keep coming up with material/content for your blog? Many people struggle with coming up with different articles/posts and they only have one blog.
I think in my case Indology is a vast subject. We are one of the oldest civilizations and there is a lot to uncover, discover and analyze.
Let’s take an example, say Ramayana. How many articles have been written around Urmila(Lakshman’s wife), or Shatrughan? These are mighty interesting topics which most of the people want to read about.
 So, I have rarely found it tough to search for a topic on which I would write my next blog, but yes, to generate interest and buzz around it, that’s always a challenge a writer has to accept and succeed eventually

10. Whats your strategy with your novel in general?
I would first think of an idea, that people may be interested in. I may even think of more than one idea, and combine them, or analyze them independently. Once I am confident about the idea, I start building a story around the same. The themes which I am comfortable in do not have much scope for romance or drama, and I consider myself good at building puzzles, suspense/thriller is the theme I choose for building the story. Only when I am convinced about the story, do I start penning it down

11. Any specific tips you have for newbie bloggers who want to make it in the blogosphere?
Of course! Anyone who is reading this and is planning to start a blog, please do it now! Keep it private, if you are not too comfortable with it, but do keep on penning your thoughts. Tomorrow you may have to search for these thoughts and there would be a place where you can always find it.
For newbie bloggers, I think networking is very important. There is a huge audience who is waiting for good content to be told and written about and if none of your friends form a subset of that audience, networking with other bloggers, visiting blogging sites, forums like Indiblogger, Facebook pages could be a good way to start. Eventually, you have to identify and reach out to that community, and mark your presence there with good content and networking

12. What would you prioritize? Content? SEO? Traffic? Readers?
I think that’s a very good question and thanks for asking the same. For me, the aim was to increase reader base/subscribers. So, of course, I needed to strike out a balance among all the parameters. I started out with prioritizing Traffic and SEO much more and focused solely on page views. Because, I knew if 1000 people would visit the blog, only 2 may stay back, and to build a base of 2000, I had to reach out to 1000000 different people. But, as eventually the dust settled down, and I had a regular audience, I started prioritizing the content and readers more and now don’t focus much on SEO tools and page views. The tools brought them here, but what made them stay is the content and the feedback of readers helps me build my content better

13. Whats the best thing a blogger can give to his readers?
A good quality post! I mean readers are the real motivation behind a blogger, right? Unless, of course, he wants to manage it as a private diary. So, definitely, the blogger shouldn’t compromise on the content and try not to please the readers. Your content was the reason they came in first place

14. A lot of people are interested in writing for the money earning potential. What are some tips for people interesting in making money from writing? What are some realistic expectations in regards to what can be made?
If you are trying to take up writing as a full time job, go ahead! You are trying to attempt one of the most respect jobs of all times. However, the core reality of Indian literary circle is that no matter how much Chetan Bhagat or Shobha De get offered for writing columns in national newspapers or the rights for their next novels, these are merely a handful of names. Writing industry is still not a huge money raker jobs for Indian authors. In fact, for a new writer, to get his first novel published, he may have to wait for as much as 2-3 years(and I am not exaggerating), or would have to turn towards self- publishing which involves a lot of extra baggage in the form of marketing, etc.
So, I would suggest, you keep writing and trying to earn no matter where you get the opportunity from. Be it some sports magazine, or local newspaper, or e-magazines, etc. You may also choose to write on subjects on which people may be highly interesting in, like stock market etc. which can help you earn through ads, but again, the content should be unique and original, the images unused.

15. What motivates you most in life?
My family is the biggest motivation in my life. My parents never did force me into any stream or any choice of career, and I made all the decisions myself. That kind of helped a lot. My wife is now the biggest motivation of my life. The amount of effort she puts in to help me create content, spread information about my blogs and novel through her network, and her continuous motivation when things don’t seem to work, is really splendid. My brother and brother-in-law have also helped a lot in getting a substantial audience for my book Finders, Keepers and that kind of always motivates me to keep moving.

16. What has been your strategy for creating visibility to yourself and your blog?
My social media network has by far been my biggest strength. But apart from the people, I make sure I make good use of all possible tools like Youtube, Quora, Pintrest, Reddit, StumbleIpon, Speaking Tree, Indiblogger, etc.
Not only these tools help me create and share content of varying conventions and attributes, they help me share some good original content as well. The content you create should be engaging enough and that’s one key feature to visibility

17 What was the most challenging moment in your novel content development process and why?
Well, by all measures, I have written “Finders, Keepers” on a pretty controversial topic, haven’t I? I mean writing on religion is like walking on a razor’s edge. A slip on either side and you would not even know which side did you offense.
I have tried to keep the tone of the novel positive throughout. However, as I said, no one knows which side this could end up offending

18. Everyone has a favorite/least favorite post. Name yours and why?
Ah Yes! My favorite one was “The Krishna Advantage” from my blog. Can you believe it, I have written some 30 odd posts, and 15% of all the views on my blogs have been on Krishna Advantage. In fact, this was published on Times of India website as well. I had tried to explain how Krishna would be a perfect manager in modern times.

19. Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
Well, Nimi Vashi, certainly. The way she has revolutionized book promotion/review circle is amazing, and people now know where to find the good books. And of course you, Rahul! I mean here you are doing a fine act of promoting authors, managing and maintaining your blog, your wonderful site and are doing a great job of balancing! I definitely got to learn a trick or two from you.
My friend Dev Ashish is another such blogger who creates very unique and distinct content.
Among Indian writers, I look up to Amish Tripathi and Ashwin Sanghi a lot as they touched a subject when it was almost a no-go, and converted the theme into solid gold

20. What is the story behind the name of the novel?
Well, The title is basically an adage, “Finders, Keepers”. It means if anybody finds something, he can keep it. It’s also a famous game played by children. The story of my novel also kind of follows a similar path, where people are on lookout for hidden things. Further, “Keeper” is a term in my book.

21. Your connection with any Blogger Network like Indi blogger or Writeupcafe or any other and the experience?
Yeah, I am a regular with Indiblogger, though not much familiar with Writeupcafe.
I think Indiblogger is a great platform to bring bloggers together on a common portal. There are regular discussions and threads which help you improve your blog and streamline your thoughts. There are topics under which you can place your blog, which again helps you identify what content you may be interested in. The regular events and competitions also help people improve visibility among others. Overall, it’s been a great experience

22. Which genre do you feel gets the raw deal?
Poetic genres, in my humble opinion. I mean, I always find a diminishing market of good poetry, atleast in India. This is one of the toughest genres to write and never gets the due credit.

23. Which one plug-in would you suggest all bloggers to have?
Twitter, Google Plus and FB share plugins. These are handy and should be located at the right place. I mean a reader may not always copy the URL from his browser and then copy at FB or Google Plus and then care to limit it to 140 characters for Twitter. He may just close your blog and move ahead, and you may lose precious potential readers.
FB/Twitter/Google Plus plugins customize it for you. In fact, try to add all social media plugins available on your blog.

24. Five adjectives that describe you.
Well, humorous, resolute, persuaded, creative and hardworking

25. What book would you say has made the biggest impact good or bad on you?
Well, now that I have read most of the major Hindu scriptures to research for “Finders, Keepers”, Ram Charit Manas and Shiva Purana did make the biggest impact on me. Not only because they kind of form a subplot for my novel, but also because for the first time I looked into what was in the mind of the writer. If Ram Charit Manas was simply a re-telling of Ramayana, Tulsidas would have simply done it that way. Why are there differences between the two, what did Tulsidas want to tell us? Why does it start with the marriage of Shiva?

26. Do you get easily provoked by positive/negative comments??
Positive comments always get you high, and I see no wrong in it. Just that we should not lose our head and scream. Also, we should be ready to gracefully accept negative comments and work upon the weak areas. Initially I got affected by negative comments as well, but now I see them as suggestions people are trying to make to help me better my work and book.

27. Do you plan to write a book, as every bloggers dream it is?
I think this question doesn’t fit in here, as I have already written a book. I chose to start writing only when a lot of my readers asked me to do it

28. Are you a judgmental person, do you prefer to take sides instead of standing neutral?
It’s very tough to be always neutral. So, I do take sides instead of standing neutral, but that mostly depends on the situation and the topic. Like, I go out and vote for a party, so no point being neutral there. But, if someone is in a conflict of whether Greek mythology is as diverse as Hindu mythology, I prefer to stay neutral.

29. Your collaboration with other bloggers, are you much into social networking, tell us everything about it?
So, as I said earlier, there is a huge audience out there for every genre that wants to read your work. It’s just the matter of connecting with them and telling them your work has all the ingredients they were searching for. So, of course collaboration is important and networking is very important.
As far as books are concerned, the authors from your network will help you get your work promoted. I mean they are people with certain number of followers and fans. Their word for your book will always be counted as a huge plus and that’s the best way you can promote your book.
I have spent a lot of years in a good deal of social networking, and believe me, there are friends who I have never met or spoken to, but they have helped me out like anything to get my work published. I think that counts a lot.

30. What genre attracts you the most and which genre you avoid?
I am generally more inclined towards fictional writing than any other genre of writing. Among fictional works, I prefer suspense/ humor/satire over more “mainstream” genres like romance or love stories.

31. Your Views on Contests and increasing plagiarism?
I think contests are important. They help you increase visibility about the book. See, this is not the age and time when a writer writes something good and once a publisher picks it up, he sits back and relaxes that marketing and promotion is publisher’s job. No, you have to do a major part of the job, and contests, reviews are a major part of it.
Plagiarism in any form is harmful as it not only kills the hard-work done by someone; it also kills the spirit of creativity. I mean someone has put in a lot of effort to create some content, and you think you can have it for easy, that’s simply wrong. We should have stricter laws and rules as creative writing is one field where the lines of plagiarism blur down and it’s not easy to prove plagiarism. We should also have much stricter author- reader community which may help us identify such people and cases.

32. Words for me and my blogs Desire v/s Destiny and Blogger Interviews and my Website
As I said earlier as well, I think you are doing a great job with Desire v/s Destiny and  You are doing a great act of promoting authors, managing and maintaining your blog, your wonderful site and are doing an awesome job of balancing all of it. The tips and tricks you put up on MyMagicJobs is really helpful to those who are struggling to find the right platform to know about these things, and of course to know about current job openings is really important. And you do so much for free! Hats off to you and your efforts, Rahul! And I have not yet mentioned your photography skills! You are really an all-rounder.

33. On winning the Award/s , Are they Really necessary.
Awards are good for your health, though they necessary are your life support. Which means, while its good to win awards, they are not everything. I mean, the jury consists of people only, and they may err. So, they are not a final word in any case.

34. So whats Next in your list?
Right now I am enjoying the great reviews my book “Finders, Keepers” is getting and how slowly but steadily its being liked by reader circle and fellow authors. I am also trying to work on the idea for my next book. If I am not convinced, I may not even start my next book. So, unless the idea is super strong in my own views, I will probably keep on working on the same. I would also like to continue blogging regularly as it gave me the reader base which is helping me now.

35.Words for your readers and why they should follow you?

My theme is not very widely chosen and my readers say I am able to hold their interest inspite of my descriptive style of writing, so there must be something good in the content that I create, and that should be a good reason for others to follow me as well.  You can visit my blog to know more about my work.

Nikita Singh Latest Work is Not Original ?

Interview with Ganga Bharani: @ganga_bharani : who says that Nikita Singh has got the Inspiration from an earlier work of hers which she read couple of years Back.

There are news about Nikita Singh latest work's Right Here Right Now Ideas being picked up from an earlier work by Ganga Bharani.We Spoke with Ganga Regarding the same and got to know certain Facts about the same as well.She did submitted the proofs and we are publishing the same.We are not publishing this Interview to malign or to publicise anyone , We are doing a plain interview and publishing the same unedited.The Views expressed below are solely by Ganga Bharani.We Can only say that we dont Support Plagiarism and are strictly against it.

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself ,your blog(s)/website(s), and your aspirations and your hobbies!!
            I am a simple girl with complicated dreams. I have a book published but I still don't call myself a writer. It takes many books to realize for ourselves if we are the "Writer" that the word actually means; so I have a few more to go before I call myself one. I love to make short films and videos as a hobby. Two of my short films have won awards at WE CARE international film festival. I work as a software engineer and I love my job.
            My dream to become a writer began with the hobby of writing articles to newspapers. When those articles were published in various newspapers like The Hindu, Deccan Chronicle and the like I gained a lot of confidence. I created a blog to archive the rejected articles. That's how it all started. Now, I am running towards my dream of becoming a chief guest at my (when I have one) kid's school function (To be worthy of it).
That's pretty much about me.

2. How you first got to know that your content had been copied or plagiarized.
            I won't say copied or plagiarized because I am really confused with those words. According to my understanding reading something and then intentionally using it without giving credits is plagiarism; be it the plot or even as small as a character sketch. Plagiarism, according to me, is not just something that is related to words but something that's majorly related to the "INTENTION".
When this book was a manuscript, I had sent the first few chapters to Grapevine on 15th January, 2013, as a part of my proposal. On 4th March 2013 I received a reply from Nikita Singh, Editor Grapevine saying that the editors enjoyed reading my manuscript and they would like to take a look at the entire manuscript before making a final decision.
 My mail to Grapevine:

Nikita's reply:

            While I was still waiting for their reply, I met with another publisher, Tales4 Publication, and they were ready to publish the book in a traditional way, without getting a single rupee from me. So I thought it would be right to check with Grapevine and keep them informed about the other publisher. I mailed them asking for an update. In reply to that, I got a rejection mail from a different editor, below is the screenshot of the rejection mail. I am a sport and it's okay to get rejected.

In December 2013, I got my book, Just you, me and a secret published with Tales4 Publications.

28th April 2014: I saw a poster that Nikita published on her Facebook page promoting her book. Below is the poster I am referring to. The synopsis of the book was a lot similar to my book. I got a little doubtful and sent a mail both to you and Grapevine to receive nothing in response. The mail was sent with the subject, 'Doubt of plagiarism' and yet both the publishers ignored my mails. I did not mention such a doubt anywhere in social media respecting the publisher and writer. I didn't want to jump to conclusions before I checked it.

           I, calmly, waited till the book titled 'Right here, right now' got published. A lot of blogger friends told me how so much similar the two stories are. I read the book myself and was shocked. The plot, the narrator chosen to narrate, the theme and mood of the story and most importantly first chapter, including the tiny details in it were just like my book.

            For instance, in my book I have spoken about the beeping sound, ECG to the "right".  The same details are in the epilogue and the beginning of the first chapter of the other book. I have also attached a screenshot of a reviewer's comment about both the books.

First chapter of my book, Just you me and a secret:

First chapter of Nikita's Right here, Right now:


             I need to mention Sachin Garg the owner of Grapevine replied to another mail  had sent saying that Nikita is not with them anymore. It was also mentioned that Right here, Right now was published under Penguin's banner and they can't do much about it.

            The point I am trying to make is that she has read my manuscript, which is clear from the mail she has sent. After a few days she publishes a book with a very similar plot. How often do two people, who write a story with an amnesiac protagonist, start with the same hospital scene. Okay, let's say this is common. But how often do they write about just the same details in almost the same style? Considering that she has read my manuscript already, how far can we consider this coincidental?

            We budding writers actually research the market to understand what sells and what doesn't. We spend years in coming up with a plot that's not much touched upon by the Indian market. We take years in finding a publisher. If it was rejected I won't flare up and falsely blame. I am a sport I can assure you that. But when we send to the publisher and the writer, who is also the editor there, sends a mail asking for full manuscript, then the next book she writes is of the same concept are we not supposed to question? If it was the same concept I won't call it a act to be questioned. The first chapter clearly reveals the intention. I am against that intention. 
            Also the publishers (Both penguin and mainly grapevine) did not take this seriously when I had mailed. They might say that they receive 100 such mails about being plagiarised. But I am sure they get 10 times more number of manuscripts a day. It's their duty to protect those 1000 writer's who send their manuscripts with trust by replying to the 100 mails about plagiarism.
            With what trust will we send the manuscripts to them? I might not be a famous writer, maybe I won't even turn into one, let's say. What if a highly potential person sends a concept that's not like anything in the Indian market in the recent times and what if that ends up like this?
            Also, what if Nikita's book had the same story as mine? The publishers did not even check it when I had mailed. If they had now they would have confidently said it is not plagiarism. If that was the case her book would have got published and even if I file a case I won't be able to publish my work. (Thank God! It was already published.)

            My question here is, if I am an editor of a reputed publishing house I get to read manuscripts of budding writers every day. Am I allowed to pick the concept I like the most, reject it and then write a book with the same plot but a story of my style? Will this not question the way we need to feel protected in sending manuscripts to publishers?

            Another question I have is, if a not-so-famous writer has a concern of plagiarism which involves a famous writer, will it not be taken seriously by the publishers? My mail was not replied to.

            If this is the case, editors are free to reject good concepts and make use of it quickly in their book. They will obviously get it published before the struggling writer approaches another publisher, in my case it was luckily quick. So, this will make the editor have an edge over the writer to get appreciated for the concept. The pain for the other writer doesn't stop there, when she/he publishes the original work, people will say it's similar to the famous author's book. How are we, writers, protected today?

            I am not saying the entire story of Right here, right now was lifted from my book. All I am saying is I am against the intention.

3. What did you do about it?
            After receiving no response from the publishers, I posted it on facebook but did not get an support at that time. I thought I won't be able to fight against big names and people won't actually try to understand what I am trying to say, so left it there.
            On 11th February, I was tagged in twitter to promote her book, the same one I am complaining about and I got really annoyed. I felt humiliated. But keeping quiet about this was even more humiliating. I thought I should voice about it with all the proofs on social media though I assumed no one will relate to what I am talking about; THE INTENTION though the stories are different. To my surprise, people understood it very well, a lot of them supported me including your site which came forward to give me a chance to voice it here.
            Penguin then tweeted asking me for all the proofs and the details to be mailed. I have mailed it to them. I hope they will do justice being such a reputed publisher.
4. What is the proof of the accusation ?
I have attached all the proofs in my previous replies. The first chapter being very similar and the plot being same, considering her reply confirming that she has read my manuscript and the timing of the book being published a  few months right after the reply from her makes it more intentional than coincidental.
5. Did you try contacting Nikita Singh Directly over email or twitter or facebook.?
            I thought it was not professional to directly mail her asking if she had done. So I just mailed the publishers and waited enough assuming someone would take action for me until I understood that if someone would talk for me it would be ME. I tweeted two days back asking where she got the concept from and if she remembers reading my manuscript. That's where everything started. She is yet to respond.
6. Why don't you plan to send a legal notice , that must not be a problem ?
            Penguin has replied to my mail, NOW, saying that they will look into this and get back. I will wait to know what they decide before I decide what I need to do.
7. Did you try contacting other publishing agencies and sellers like flipkart etc ?
            No. I don't think contacting Flipkart will solve the issue. Also, when people involved don't take it seriously, like Grapevine and Penguin, how will others take it seriously.

9. What do you want if they agree that the accusation is actually correct ?
            Right now I got what I wanted. As I have already said in social media they should not easily do this and take struggling writers for granted. I wanted them to understand that we struggling writers won't let it go easily without being a pain by voicing it, out of fear. I think I have made that very clear to them.
10. Do you feel demotivated that its been done to you or are you motivated enough
to fight for justice ?
            I am not demotivated as my book got published before hers and mine has a different story. Also the reviews I have got so far are very encouraging an positive.
            I feel stronger after the kind of response I got from people in social media. I was happy that people understood what I pointed out as a mistake from their side; THE INTENTION.

11. What do you have to say if some one calls it fake publicity?
            If all I wanted was publicity I would have planned and executed this a long time ago. I never had this in mind. Opening up was not planned. It was a sudden outburst seeing someone tagging me to promote that book. Also, if you still think it's all for publicity all I can say is everything stated above are facts and I don't fear being called names for raising my voice for my right and fellow writers' rights.

Similarities between Right here, right now and my book, Just you, me and a secret:
1. Clearly first chapters are very similar.
2. In the second chapter of my book I have written a scene with the laptop. It can be read here…/just-you-me-and-secre… A scene in Right here Right now is very similar to this scene.
My argument here is, it's about a 17 year old girl. So when she was a kid, it would have been a year in 90s when Digital cameras were not there. So it is natural for anyone to say that the amnesiac was showed a physical photograph. Why a laptop? I had written laptop because that scene occurred so to me and also it was about the recent photographs. In her defense, she can say it was all digitized form of physical photographs. But why a laptop? It could have been a tablet or a phone. The only conclusion I can come to, with this point also, is that it's taken from my manuscript.
3. Her book starts from 2nd April 2013. I would like to point out that the first five chapters of my manuscript was sent to Grapevine in January, 2013. I received a reply from Nikita asking for full manuscript on 4th, March, 2013. I sent the manuscript immediately as I had it ready. As writers we tend to make use of the date we start the book, we don't write a date too much in future. So, my point is that she has started writing her book after she received my full manuscript. This makes the intention clear to me.

And these are just a few examples only....
