Sumit Agarwal is a graduate from IIT Kanpur and has been a successful businessman. He is also a music composer, lyricist, singer, actor, writer and an altruist. His debut, a popular fiction, The Four Patriots is a racy, contemporary thriller with a message: why it is important for educated citizens to stop abhorring politics, and how even a few individuals can make a difference to the country.

When did the idea initiate

I had this dream from childhood to see my country march ahead. I felt we had huge potential but somehow we do not work that hard as we should. We want to win back our lost pride but don’t want to take pains. Around three years ago I finally started painting this picture, which shows that all of our dreams about the country can become a reality if the youth works towards it.

 

Which genre draws you the most as a reader and a writer As a writer I am committed to the patriotic genre. I shall continue to write stories with a message and with the intention to inspire our country's youth to participate in its development. As a reader I am drawn to a variety of subjects including mythology, thrillers and romance.

Who among the pantheon of writers (past/present) would you like to have coffee with If I could visit the past, then maybe Sidney Sheldon.

What is your antidote for writer’s block A short break, of maybe a few days. Your mind automatically brings up a new perspective. Being a multi-tasker, it is easy for me to get busy with business or music, while the block unclogs itself.

 

Ending of one book that you would have changed There is nothing like a good or a bad ending. It is one’s individual perception. A seemingly lacklustre end for me, maybe a wow one for somebody else. A book is like an author’s baby. I would rather not fiddle with it.
