27 September 2013 - QA 1

I am a professional writer. Should I write stories for the commercial market or should I stay faithful to my own art, write what I deeply feel about, which possibly may not sell?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Why do you have to choose between these two? Why don’t you do both? Write for commercial purposes, and write something that is very immortal, to go for times to come.

(Ans: But Gurudev, I have an identity. Either I hold on to my identity, or have two identities.)

You can have more than one identity. Why do you want to be stuck with one identity? You can do this and that. I feel there is no conflict.
