Rikky Bhartia is a 25-year-old Chartered Accountant from Kolkata, working in Intrasoft Technologies Ltd (123greetings.com) as a Specialist – Corporate, and had worked with Ernst and Young Pvt. Ltd as Associate Consultant, in Pune.
From his childhood, being creative was his passion, but his first priority was building a career, which was also the dream of his family. He had to give up his dreams of creativity to concentrate on his studies. After clearing his CA in July 2011, he was able to move from his studies to fulfil his dreams of creative pursuits.
He had been writing since childhood, but just raw lines, that nobody read, and though they were special to him, he did not take them too seriously. At 17 years, he started writing short shaayeris (poems), that were appreciated by family and friends, who encouraged him to write more. In his teenage years, he had always dreamt of a fairy tale life, but soon realized that life is in fact a scary journey, where you don’t know what will happen next! Today, having experienced life and being wiser, he took on the task of writing his debut book, which he started in October 2011.
His inspiration for the book is the confusion that teenagers of today face in their definition and understanding of what is love. Teenagers feel that falling in love is just by talking, joking, and meeting friends. Sad, but this fact is not true, all the time! On the other hand, sometimes, they think that their love is just good friendship. Most youngsters today are confused between love, friendship, and infatuation and those who get true love don’t even know how to appreciate it … Ironical but true!
Through this book, he wants people to understand the difference between friendship, infatuation, and true love, to have faith in their love and wait for their time to come. Love is also about sacrifices and is in the hand of destiny. Love and destiny are co-related … if there is love in your stars; it will come with time.
He would like to use his books to address some critical issues and try to remove them from society.
