Arun Parbari

Arun Pabari is passionate about writing and has written many short stories. We recently found out that during covid, Arun published his book, Who will SAVE the World, and is even offering one lucky reader a chance to win a copy! Read down to bottom of the article.

Tell us about your book and what has been the inspiration.
This book is fiction intertwined with a lot of truth. It is one man’s fight against all odds to find the person who can save the earth from destruction as a huge meteor is going to strike the earth. He travels to several places – each time getting miraculous help to continue his quest. The book is set in 4 different continents. The inspiration for finishing the book was the birth of my grandson Shaan in 2021. I burnt midnight oil to finish the book in his honor.

Have you been working on this idea forever?
I had this idea since a very long time. I was just waiting for something to click. When I was in Lisbon in 2016, I took some pictures thinking that the book will begin there – but somehow it was not the right place. I then went to Marseille for my office work and then there was a click. Everything was just right. I took a few pictures and told myself that this was it. And yet, I did not start writing. When Covid arrived, I started writing in bits and pieces. It was only when my grandson was on the way that I starting working on it all day and late nights.

What is the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome?
The biggest obstacle has been time – the time required to write – and do all the other chores (work + home). At times I would get stuck and would not know how to go to the next chapter. I would go to sleep at 2 am – and then ideas would start flowing.


What are your plans for the future?
Another book has been planned. The whole book is set in my mind – I just need to find the time to start writing. The title of the book will be “The son of Pati and Pasu”.

One person in Italy has translated Who will SAVE the World into Italian! It is in the stage of being proofread for publishing right now. Another person would like to translate in to French. More translations are being looked into for German, Ukrainian, and possibly even Russian. Let’s see!

What is your favorite extract or chapter of the book and why?
My favorite chapter is the last one where he meets the person who can save the earth. His personal problem gets solved. And also it gets the reader thinking about a lot of things.

Anything else you think our readers would like to know.
As per some of the readers, the story is very interesting and gripping. The description of the various places the hero visits is very descriptive and the reader can feel that he/she is the hero of the book and can visualize the place.
