Episode 9 -Writing, AR Rahman, books, writer's block and more about writing (feat. Krishna Trilok)

Mar 04, 2018, 04:17 PM

In my conversation with Krishna, we talk about his early childhood, his love for battlefields, how he hid his passion for writing for a good amount of time just so he wouldn't be discouraged. His loneliness and frustration leading up to his first publication, Krishna's interaction with musical maestro, AR Rahman (Krishna spent months traveling with AR Rahman, spoke to his family, directors and others who are a part of his journey). We discuss Rahman's personality, humour, humility and his unique gift of elevating spirits around him. Krishna talks to us about writer's block, how he tackles it and lots more on why Krishna thinks everybody should write-one way or the other. We also discuss Krishna's favourite books. You can find all books and important links mentioned in the show notes, below

A student of commerce and marketing, he started writing in my teens – with the sole and simple intent of creating a big battle scene set in a world of his own imagination. The result, ten years later, was his first book: Sharikrida which has garnered world-wide applause. He is also the authorised biographer of Mr. A.R. Rahman, which will be released by June next year.
