I interviewed Shweta Taneja way back in 2014, almost 7 years back. There's a fabulous book written by Shweta Taneja titled They Found What? Stories Of Daring Discoveries By Indian Scientists. Why I find it a great book is because it takes a dating step to showcase excellent work done by Indian scientist. While most of the Indian authors try to imbibe western culture, themes, and genres in their stories/books, this books is absolutely am exception. For me, anybody who cares about his/her motherland, respects her, writes about the real gems of that land who make us feel proud, it's no less than a real soldier and a patriot. There's something very unique about this book. The book can be started from both sides. So, basically, it's the front cover on both sides. That means, interestingly, there's no back cover.

Please share some of the best memories of your childhood

I used to sit with my cousins and tell them scary stories when electricity would go off in summer holidays. I still remember their feared expression while I write my current thrillers!

Half of the book, They Found What? Stories Of Daring Discoveries By Indian Scientists by Shweta Taneja, you read from one end. Another half you read from the other side. That's wonderful! Indeed. Another interesting thing in this book is the fabulous illustrations by Sharanya Kunnath which are very relevant and well-curated. This book is a good read for all ages. It's bound to give a good amount of knowledge and a bonus addition to our wisdom about Indian art, culture, and genius brains. It will make you wonder, as the author says, how scientists invented and discovered crazy things like mind readers and invisible frogs. It will tell you what made genius brains tick. Scientists, as we all know, spend their lifetime in achieving their goals. It's fascinating to learn what keeps them inspired and motivated throughout not to let them tire and give up on between.

I often used to wonder how scientists and researchers make themselves so dedicated and passionate to keep moving bit by bit towards their goals. Well, They Found What? Stories Of Daring Discoveries By Indian Scientists by Shweta Taneja has all the answers inside along with a bouquet of fabulous real life stories of our heroes. These are grasping stories, most of those, I was unaware of, before reading this book. I am sure you would also love to know how a bomb squad dog is trained. Or, do you know besides solid, liquid, and gas, there is a fourth state of matter? What's that? To know, you will have to read this book.

Actually, this book has two titles, since it has two front covers. One side title is what I stated in the beginning. The other side title is They Made What? STORIES OF INGENIOUS INVENTIONS BY INDIAN SCIENTIST.
