Rahul Kaushik is a bestselling author with

Instagram page, “The Melting Words”. Team
Drishti caught a chance to meet and interview
him while he was on the campus for
Q. Sir, you’ve had a job for 9 years and you’ve
been traveling a lot too these past years, so
from your busy and hectic schedule how did
you make time for writing, for following your
dream and passion?
Rahul Kaushik - You have to make time. Time
passes too fast, 24 hours in a day passes inthe blink of an eye. But when you are desperate
for something, you have to give it your all. When
you want to do something, do it with conviction.
Time has a beauty of passing by, you just have
to go parallel with time to achieve your dreams.
Just go with the flow. It is as simple as that.
Q. But sir when you do the same work
continuously for days and days, you get
frustrated and no output comes from it, the
same goes for writing, you just get fed up of all
the things that you do daily, including writing.
How to tackle that?
Rahul Kaushik - Yes, Now there is that. Butwriting isn’t a job right. Let’s say there is this
beautiful girl and she asks you out on coffee or
dinner after a tiring day that you had.
Now if you like her, why wouldn’t you go on a
date with her. You’ll, of course, go out with her.
That is similar to writing, Now if writing is your
Mehbooba (love interest) then you’ll follow her,
if she’s your friend, you’ll stay with her and if
she is a stranger, you won’t even listen to her.
Think of writing as a source of meditation, don’t
do it as a job. Do it as your passion. That’s that.
Q. Sir, next I want to ask you that when you first
started writing, you wrote in the Hindi language
and later you switched to the English language.
And I know most of our readers are curious to
know when you’ll continue writing in Hindi?
Rahul Kaushik - I still write in Hindi. I just don’t
write it for everyone else, I only write it for myself.
I write it for fun, nothing serious. Hindi is and
will always be my first love. Well, you’ll all be
happy to know that now I am in the process of
making youtube videos in Hindi.
Q. Yes, Sir. I’d like to know more about these
youtube videos. You mentioned you’ll be doing
stand-up comedy in them. So what would you
like to say about that?
Rahul Kaushik - yes, I am in the process of
making stand-up comedy videos on youtube,
they are coming out good and they’ll be releasing
soon. So just wait for the videos, and do watch
it, everyone. Hopefully, it will be as successful
as the Instagram page is.
Q. You’re also planning on releasing a novel
soon. Any comments on that?
Rahul Kaushik - Yes, there is a novel coming
out. It will be launched in 3-4 months, I guess.
And Sorry that’s the most I can share with you
Q. It’s okay Sir. And lastly, I’d like to ask that
as most of our college students are single, anymessage for them?
Rahul Kaushik - Stay Single (Laughs). No, I’m
just kidding. I would like to say, do whatever you
want to do, stay single, flirt, or get into a serious
relationship or a casual relationship. Do
anything you want, just do it honestly, don’t
trouble anybody, don’t ruin someone’s life, don’t
lie and most importantly don’t lose your identity
in a relationship, don’t make your life about that
person or that relationship. Just remember
these two things, don’t trouble any other person
and don’t trouble yourself too.
Sir, that was all. Thank you so much for this
interview and for your valuable time.
- No, thanks to you. I enjoyed talking to you guys.
I had a lovely experience.
