"The best thing about reading or writing stories on love & new beginnings is that they provide hope& positivity" - Author Megha Ahuja in Conversation.

I've always found that stories about people starting afresh, finding their courage, and following their dreams have resonated with readers, especially if the story has a strong female protagonist who's authentically herself and is more than just a romantic love interest. 'All I Have Is Love' by Megha Ahuja is a heartwarming novel that explores themes of love, loss and resilience, published by Srishti. In addition to being an author, Megha is an educationist, ardent social activist and a dynamic TEDx organizer

1. Can you share a little bit about the journey of the main characters in your book?

I think I'll start off with a couple of questions around. All I have is love. Can you share a little bit about the journey of your main characters in the book? How do they navigate the search for love and embark on new chapters in their lives?

Hi, Ramya. Thank you so much for having me here. Talking about. All I have is love and its main characters. It's the story of Inaya and Agastya talking about their journey. Inaya is trying to rebuild her life after the tragic death of her parents in a road accident. And while trying to overcome her pain and grief, she finds the purpose of her life in Urban Greens, a startup venture that works for creating like farms on urban rooftops

2. As an author, what is so rewarding about writing stories of love and fresh starts?

Love and new beginnings are universal themes that resonate with readers. As an author, what do you find most fulfilling about writing stories that revolve around these themes?

You the best thing about reading or writing stories about love and new beginning is that they provide hope and positivity. As a writer, the most gratifying achievement can be if you can kind of impact anybody's life for your writing. So I remember there was this one girl who reached out to me on social media and told me that she's recently lost her father other and after reading my book, it helped her heal and move on in her life

3. On writing strong female protagonists.

Your protagonist in the book, Inaya, is strong and independent, someone who believes in love and spreading joy despite having a very tragic, difficult sort of past. How do you approach writing such complex yet relatable and empowering characters that immediately connect with your readers?

Even though the book is fiction, it has a lot of my real life experiences that I turned it into fiction. So, for example, there's a boy called Kush in the book who has had multiple brain surgeries and an Inaaya goes out of her way to help that boy to get admission in a school. It is actually a true story of a real boy whom I mentored for three years pre COVID in my own school

So yeah, here comes the final question. And for you, balancing multiple roles and responsibilities can be challenging. How do you manage your time and energy to ensure that your roles as an educationist, an activist, an author, leader, a traveler and so many more remain impactful and fulfilling?

Once you have a purpose in life, that purpose drives you to do wonders. And last but not the least, it's about believing in yourself and what you are capable of doing. Because if you have a firm belief that you can change the world, then trust me, you actually can. Thank you so much
