Interview with Prachi Garg

Hi thank you for agreeing to this interview.


Below are the questions.

  • Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

I am a true blue Mirandian, who loves travelling and writing. During my MBA from Great Lakes Institute of Management, I started http://www.Ghoomophiro.com, it was that time, I faced few challenges, and this actually made me to interact with few of these inspiring ladies, which I penned down in superwomen. At ghoomophiro, we organize solo women travel and corporate team events. The USP of organization is that we do not have fixed packages. Instead, we curate each and every trip based on our client requirements and interest areas. I also go out for workshops on entrepreneurship and take up lectures on the same with various e-cells.


  • When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I have always enjoyed writing since my childhood. You can blame it on my genes- my father is an editor of pharma journals. I have been penning down my experiences in multiple ways and writing a book was on my bucket-list, though was not sure, if it would be a fiction or non-fiction. 



  • Were you good at English?

No, I was never a good student, and I think I secured least marks in English.



  • How long does it take you to write a book?

It took me 2 years to write my first book, but then it became easy later on.



  • What are your ambitions for your writing career?

Can’t really say about ambition, all aI would love to see people getting inspired to entrepreneurial journey.



  • What does your family think of your writing?

My family has always been supportive of what I do. And when it comes to writing, it is something, they have encouraged me to do and express myself.



  • Which writers inspire you?

Sudha Murthy, Abdul Kalam, Paulocoelho inspires me as an author. I have always enjoyed their writing as they are inspirational.


  • So, what have you written?

Currently, I have two books under my name. Superwomen; Superwomen is a collection of journeys of 20 women entrepreneurs who made big in their lives at an early age. It encompasses their journeys, challenges and their unique way to overcome them. I have been fortunate enough to interact these women entrepreneurs and learn something from them. Another USP of the book is the variety genre of the business these women are into. On one hand, book has stories of Richa Singh from your dost, Medhavi Gandhi from happy hands from social fields, whereas Richa Kar from Zivame and Anisha Singh from Mydala; both from e-teller market has been featured. Each story is unique in its own. I strongly feel, every woman who aspire to do big in her life should read the book. Superwomen is available on leading bookstores across India. And can be ordered online from Amazon. For the convenient of readers, its kindle version is also available.

Supercouples: Running a successful business with your soul mate has always been idyllic and intriguing for me. I always used to wonder how the couples keep a pace between their personal and professional lives, especially when they are together all the time and can determine their mutual career destinies instead of spending many hours apart working for someone else,” said Garg. “This inspired me to speak to these wonderful couples across India, who planned to be “partners in crime” in everything and wanted to build a meaningful life together by co-creating something that brings joy and fulfillment. However, this interaction through their journeys brought some key takeaways for successful partnership, that I thought to write down here.”

These books are available offline in all major bookstores including landmark, crossword, Sapna book house. All the books are also available on online platforms Amazon (bit.ly/supwomen , bit.ly/supercouples), Juggernaut, PustakMandi.

Getting over the Writer’s block is the hardest thing for a writer. There are times, when you absolutely do not have anything to write and deadlines are approaching.
