Author Collaborative

In Conversation With Avinash Matta

“Life is a drama full of tragedy and comedy. You should learn to enjoy the comic episodes a little more.”― Jeannette Walls

In these tough times, its truly a blessing to be able to smile, and sometimes even, laugh. The world is not a happy place currently. But, the one thing that brings me happiness, is reading. When that leads to laughs, I’m a grateful soul. One such book that lent me many laughs in recent times was Saini Subramanyam vs. 2020 by Avinash Matta.

The story in this book is a fictional but humorous take on the lockdown in India in 2020.

Check out my short review of the book below.

When I reached out to the author, Avinash, asking him to be a part of the Author Collaborative, he was game for it, right away. Of course, before we could do the session, he had to read my book Love (Try) Angle. Here’s his take on it.

Today, after almost a month of trying to come up with a convenient date and time for both of us, we had an invigorating session.

Answering those questions was taxing. So to end the session on a light note, we had a fun and quirky, rapid fire round.

I asked Avinash these spunky questions in this round.
