1. Tell us a little about yourself. We will love to know you more!
I’m Dr. Nikhil CHandwani, recently granted a PhD in English, currently working as a Professor, English at KL University, Vijayawada. I am an author of two books I wrote your name in the sky and yours and yours too, and Coded Conspiracy. I have also published two poetry books titled Inked With Love and Unsung Words. I have worked as a Travel director for two TV SHOWS EScape from Kenya and Amazing Amazon Adventures. I have made documentaries in West Africa and written for major African Shows and Asian food based travel shows. I am also a businessman, currently the C.E.O of Walnut Discoveries Pvt. Ltd. with an investment in an upcoming Hindi Film, Sundari (She-themovie.com ) The film is scheduled to release late 2015. This made me the youngest Bollywood FIlm producer of India.
I am currently co writing a poetry book with Shourya Kohok, an upcoming really talented poetess currently pursuing her Bachelors’ in Symbiosis, Pune.
2. Describe yourself in one line.
A Mystic Wanderer, travelling for a purpose.
3.What motivates you to chase your dream?
Nature. I am a nature loving, soul seeking wanderer motivated by the hills and valleys around me. The biggest motivation for me is also the money. I want to earn huge. Wealth, wandering and wisdom, these things that motivates me.
4. How has been your journey so far?
Journey has been soul satisfying to say the least. I had tasted success as an author, poet, script writer, travel director, producer and now starting another chapter as a professor. The best part, seeing questions about me on various examinations conduced in India.
Staying all round and trying to use 24 hours of the day to follow my path of instincts has given me satisfaction and that’s what journey has been all about for me. Now, I and Shourya Kohok, have created a different poetic concept for our upcoming book which will be unveiled during the book launch. It is fun writing with people who have an exact same mental frequency like me.
5. You have achieved such a huge success so early in life. How do keep
yourself grounded & focused?
Parents help me in keeping myself grounded and focussed. I don’t hold onto any present success and aim at something higher everytime. It’s the journey that matters not the goals and so, I keep the journey to be satisfying and that keeps me grounded and focussed.
6. What do you see yourself doing five years from now?
Five years from now, I see myself as a motivational speaker talking about my life and my journey everywhere. I am also giving young writers, directors and soul seekers a chance to rise and shine.
7. If given a chance, what’s one change that you would like to see in
this world & why?
The world has been currently completely discovered (Almost( by the travellers. I want to witness the unknown locations in this country and the world but sadly, not much exists. I wanted less commercialisation and more importance to nature. People are soul followers not seekers and that’s why they fail. I want them to seek a path for themselves and not follow the usual. The world is facing a disease, a disease called laziness. This disease needs a cure and I believe that understanding these problems would certainly ensure solutions.
