Being a scientist has forced me to look at everything through black and white tinted glasses. In my wish list of manuals to survive the experience we call ‘life’ I also once wanted a ‘how to write without failing’ manual. Co-incidentally that is when Dipa Sanatani revealed her second book The Merchant of Stories. It is the kind of book I’ve wanted to read for a long time.
I started toying with the idea of doing a Mith Books YouTube channel sometime last year. I honestly had no idea where to begin. From filming, to editing, to post-production… How does it all come together? How do I even begin to chart this uncharted terrain? Each time I found myself facing my hyper critical inner voice, I would remind myself that that’s how every professional starts – as an amateur.
