“I’m always looking at & getting inspired by my surroundings, especially the tiniest creatures, which play a very important role in our daily lives as well as our eco system. Thinking like them was quite a challenge but an enjoyable one. Being in their world, and constantly trying to find the perfect balance between the real & virtual was quite a roller coaster ride, I must admit. To think and feel like them improves your sensitive side towards the nature which is very important for the very existence of our world today. My brother Prithvi is my inspiration & on him only is the main character of my story “Ash” is based on.” says Vishnu Priya. Vishnu Priya’s father designed her book. Her mother painted author’s portrait & her brother Prithvi was biggest her inspiration & support.
