Please welcome Ruchira for a little chat about her latest book VOYAGERS INTO THE UNKNOWN . It is a delightful book with the Taj Mahal as a background. I have been eagerly turning the pages as Raj is dishing out some awesome advice. 

Welcome to the blog Ruchira.



  1. What is the message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Honestly speaking I wrote this book with a theme: ‘quest for happiness’ but lately, I am coming up with reviews where the reader has concluded something else. Thus, want to keep the discussion open since surprisingly this life is enchanting and alluring since we all perceive things differently.


  1. What kinds of books do you read? When you pick up books to read, what is your favorite genre?

I like contemporary stories; since, prefer to live in the present thus, can read any genre.


  1. If you could cast your characters in a Bollywood movie of your book, who would play your characters?

I am not a picky person on that aspect. Since Bollywood comprises of talented actors. As long as a producer has picked up my book and he and a director are doing the needful…I shall not interfere ☺


  1. What were the challenges (research, literary, psychological, and logistical) in bringing Voyagers Into The Unkown to life?

Researching about the city was not that bad. Thanks to Google I could find the necessary data. However, my biggest challenge was writing the dialogues between Raj and the distressed traveler since I did not want to sound preachy yet get the message across on a lighter note.


  1. Can you share a little of your current work with us? What are you working on now?

Currently working on another fictional novel that has a theme about culture and how it can keep us grounded especially in adversity. My work is in the preliminary stage where characters are still floating around thus, can’t share anything yet. Sorry!

Thank you for this chat, Ruchira. All the very best for your next book. 








In the historic Indian town of Agra, you can find a very unusual tour company, which is owned by a charming young man named Raj. Although Raj’s official job is to show off the historical landmarks of Agra, including the legendary Taj-Mahal, his true mission is to heal the souls of his broken “birds,” as he affectionately refers to his tour participants. His business operates purely upon word-of-mouth referrals, ensuring that all of his tour members arrive in Agra with their hearts in their hands, ready for the spiritual growth and cleansing that Raj is known to provide. Healing the hearts of the spiritually damaged can be a difficult job, and in this particular tale, Raj finds himself faced with his most challenging tour group yet. First, there is Ira, a stunningly gorgeous but fragile young woman on the brink of suicide. Next, we meet Darci and Lennard, a couple on the verge of divorce. Then there is Carl, an irritable, antisocial workaholic who has burned all of his bridges. Lastly, we meet Asha, an elderly widow who still yearns for the company and comfort of her late husband. When disaster strikes the tour group, everything is thrown into jeopardy, including lives, relationships, and Raj’s very reputation as a tour guide. Raj must find a way to lift the spirits of these five special travelers, even in the face of death and despair. Venture into the unknown and discover how Raj Touristry heals the brokenhearted, one soul at a time.
