Thirty nine students along with Mr. Sajeev Philip, HOD English and Mrs. Asma Zarrin of TKS attended a vibrant interactive session on 28 January, 2019 with Lord Jeffrey Archer which was hosted by Pathways School, Noida. The audiences were mesmerized by his gracious presence and amusing anecdotes. His magnanimous outpouring of knowledge, words of wisdom and encouragement really touched the young hearts. He made an impeccable impact on the minds of the voracious readers and aspiring writers by not getting frightened of rejection in the process of becoming a writer or to reach the pinnacle in any field.
He reiterated that there was no shortcut or substitute to success and pointed out that what led a person to attain his goal was only his hard work. He stressed on the genius of the great story tellers and great writers who forced the readers to turn the pages. He added that it’s never the publisher who could decide the credibility or genius of a writer, it’s the public who decided. He answered varied questions ranging from the impact of technology on authors, writers block, female characters of his novel, politics, selection of the title, his inspiration, ideas, etc. The entire session ended with his signing of the books which would be cherished forever.
