Rahul Gandhi is the author of many unfinished works, both fiction and non-fiction. He has been writing for six years.

In 2014, Rahul spoke about the witch-hunts of the early modern period that influenced the feminist movement. This was at the Young Historian’s Conference. For this, he was placed first in the preliminary round and fourth in the final round. This inspired a greater interest in both history – the fundamental content of many of his books, notably The Monk’s Curse – and feminism. He has thus researched the works of Ipsita Roy Chakraverti, a Wiccan High Priestess, who posits that the ‘witches’ of the early modern period were the forebears of modern feminism.

In 2016, Rahul became an Allan Gray Scholar after completing high school.

I do not.
I have seen many a blog post out there listing various ways to deal with the notorious writer's block.
I have tried all of their methods. None worked for me.
It leads me to the conclusion that there is no such thing as writer's block. It is simply the inability to write because there is nothing of value to be written. When there is valuable words to be written, the writer's block shall be broken.
So, when I finished writing the first half of The Monk's Curse in 2017, I could not write further. I left it that, returning to the work two years later. And, I am all the better for it, for the words were those that had been intended, not forced from an unwilling mind reluctant to add to the awesome task of creating a literary masterpiece. That is not to say that I have ever created a literary masterpiece. Only, the best writers in the world sometimes take years to write their pieces. Others take mere days. The time taken to create a work never detracts from its value which can only be judged by its quality.(less)

You can create worlds. You can destroy worlds. With nothing more than the written word.
J. Robert Oppenheimer once commented on his work as a scientist that aided the creation of nuclear weapons. He quoted the Bhagavad Gita (a Hindu text that is certainly worth reading) as he said 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
As I write, I can say the same. And yet, there can be not a single drop of blood on my hands. There can be no deaths plaguing my conscience. Such is the power of the written word.(less)

Behind The Monk’s Curse: Chapter Nine

Today is a momentous day. It is the day that I have held the first physical copy of one of my books. This has inspired me to write the sequel to The Monk’s Curse, and to produce a historical companion to it. But on to the matter of business. Chapter Nine. I cannot say that …
