Anup Vijay is a consultant who has been working in the creative industry for a couple of years. Born and raised in an Army background, Anup derives his inspiration from his childhood for his writings. Venturing into audiobooks, he released his first book titled Roshan meets Roshani last year, that garnered support and became one of the most sought-after e-books on Storytell.
Talking about the release, Anup says, "My thought behind writing this book is my affinity towards the armed forces and the functioning of the R.A.W. I think they’re completely selfless individuals and this my little way of paying tribute to them. No matter how much you talk about them, according to me, it’s never going to be enough. In my childhood, I encountered a lot of Army men and my family too had a lot of friends in the army. A glimpse into their life was enough to fascinate me. And I’ve remained in awe since."
