It will be a pleasure to know the thoughts, the emotions that you have about the project. In case you get to read the book and also listen to the Audible, it will be my immense pleasure to share all the stories that all the experiences that I have been blessed with while I have lived here and through my writings

But it will be really nice if you can share a little bit snippets in this well so that it will really get me on to that and get hold of the book or the audio and read about it. And I feel that it's a very at least the title of the book is very compelling and the COVID of the book is also really good. So I would definitely take a look at it and hear it also. And all the best to you and for the effort

For any author who doesn't have an experience with any publishing house, the best way to go ahead is to start with an ebook and to start with the Kindle direct publishing. And it's a very useful tool. It's a very simple and straightforward tool and it's a very author friendly tool. Plus you don't have to worry about where your royalties are going. So if you have not considered a publisher yet, my submission would be that go ahead and try out KDP Amazon.com

Good evening, Rajat. Thanks a lot for inspiring me to look into the Kindle self publishing option. I'm still looking for publishers to accept it because I feel that my book is something very different and it has got a heart to it, everybody feels so that's the thing. But I was just thinking like, let me try about two, three months because I have put across through some recommendations to some publishers

Wow, this looks like a very interesting journey. And looks like Nana has a very long way to go. And yes, there is no point in a journey if it does not have an element of resistance to it. I don't know. Somehow no story becomes relatable unless it goes through the anvil of hardships. And I see that Nana also has her own share of hardships too. But eventually, two things happen with every story that I have seen

And it is an inspiration for me when I look towards it. And it's something which most of the authors who are young and who want to write this is a prime example that if you are consistent, if you're true to your heart, everything seems possible. So kudos to you on this journey, and we'll discuss more more about it when we meet. I will just drop you my number in the private message and I'll take it from there. Kudos to Rajat

Hi Rajat, it's really great to know about Uttarakhandari's audible version. I actually ordered your book, and I'm yet to read your book. So after this, even after reading your book, I love listening to your audibles because I know how good you are as a storyteller. And I heard a lot about Uttarakhandari's from Preeti, from Himanshi and all, which made me even more fascinating

Good afternoon Rajat. I'm sorry for the late reply, but yay big congratulations to you. This is absolutely elating and wonderful to know that you got onto the top most pedestal in the Amazon Book Library. It's wonderful. And what's more exciting and impressive to know is that you even completed its audible version. How amazing is that? You are truly inspirational and with all the wisdom that you have and all the stories that you have to share, it's inspirational

So that is when I started realizing that it is somehow gaining traction. And eventually, in 2023, it's after five years that I see that this book has hit into the top chart finally, and this is a completely organic ranking. I have not put any ads on it. I have not promoted it anywhere. Nothing, absolutely nothing. Just came up. Just came up organically somehow

I don't know how to define it but it's simply superb. So bask in that glory. Bask in that journey and we will see you in a while. So cheers. Cheers for all that success and all that hard work that you put into those hundred days. The first hundred days of that manuscript. Cheers. Used to that. Take care. Bye

So I think these two traits must have blended beautifully and you must have written stories or anecdotes in a very interesting way, the way you recite small instances here of your past work life. Also, Rajat, Uttarakhand is my homeland and I have read numerous books about the mountains there and the natural beauty there. And many Britishers have written about it. Many contemporary renowned authors have written about it

So much of power at ethereal power at those places where I have been, that sometimes it becomes, when I tell people, when I sit down and when I share my stories and conversations with people, they sometimes do not believe me. But a lot of things that I have not documented, I have mostly documented about the travel experiences, about the beauty of the place. A lot of operational details I have omitted
