Success doesn’t need a grave voice.‘The the book was the stupidest decision of my life’. A shocking statement, but an honest one. Varun Aggarwal’s character Anu aunty in his book ‘How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-founded a Million Dollar Company’, is one that every Indian reader can relate to.
I have an Anu aunty, you have one and everyone has one. She is the one who always has an avid interest in our well being and as a result, pokes her Pinnochio nose into everything. In the case of Varun Aggarwal, it happens to be his moms best friend. When we consider the fact that it is because of this well-meaning irritating aunty that the fictional narrative was composed, we become a little more tolerant of them.
The session was quite entertaining. Varun Aggarwal left the audience in splits each time he spoke of his writing journey. Be it googling how to writing a book or uploading his own book on the torrent without his publisher’s knowledge, this new age author has done everything.
The profound message that Varun Aggarwal conveyed during the end of the session drove across why his debut book is slated to be a movie. Ignoring all the harping voices and actually listening to yourself can create miracles and create opportunities, he said. And the session ended on that note of inspiration.
