We often start believing for no reason at all that if we do multi-tasking we will fail miserably. The truth however I feel is that if we are doing many things all of which we love doing we can achieve success in all those! Recently I got to know one such lady who is pursuing all her passions, living her all her dreams and is immensely successful and popular in all her undertakings! She is none other than Prachi Gupta! Prachi Gupta is a bestselling author of four fiction books, motivational speaker, state woman president of a political party and the founder of a literary startup. Her passion is to work towards literature and she’s trying to promote women and young writers of India. Also an ambassador of few NGOs, She’s continually working for women empowerment. Let’s find out the journey of this inspiring lady.
Life is full of shocks and surprises and nobody knows what life has in store for them. So did Prachi Gupta. She began her career as a software engineer and had never thought of being a professional writer but destiny had something else planned for her. This transition was totally unexpected. Literature as a career was unexplored territory for her. She and her brother only had a wonderful story and a lot of determination to share with all.
Even after all the major publications turned their proposal down, they did not lose hope and decided to self publish their book instead. Overcoming all the obstacles coming in their way, she and her brother became the youngest bestselling sibling pair of India. The hassle of publishing led her to start the venture ‘Huddle Books’ with the intention of promoting poetry and creating the launchpad for the novice writers.
While exploring the career prospects in civil services in India, she realized her passion for writing and chose to persevere despite facing disapproval. And everything followed suit.
Under some circumstances and peer pressure in 2017, she reached a point where she felt to give up on writing but her strong will and passion didn’t let her quit which led her to the culmination. That was just a phase, and at the present day, she’s motivating others to follow the path where their heart lies.
Being a youth she empathizes with young hearts and thus, her books, centered around the theme- romantic comedies- have a quotient of inspiration in them. Her first book, Accidentally Cupid, is very close to her heart as it proved to be a treat for her writing testament. She feels elated when people relate themselves to her story and tell her how it changed their perspective towards life. Owing to the popularity of this book, it later got picked up by Fingerprint Publishing and is now sold by the name, ‘Right from the start…she stole his heart’. Her motto is to teach people never to give up and she strongly believes in the quote,
“When you go through a hard period, When everything seems to oppose you, When you feel you cannot even bear one more minute, NEVER GIVE UP! Because it is the time and place that the course will divert!”
― Rumi, The Essential Rumi
Prachi Gupta has proved yet again, nothing should come in between our dreams and chasing them! There is always a ray of hope even in the darkest of times. The key to success is always ‘Never stop believing in yourself and your dreams.’ Keep chasing them. You will definitely live them one day!
