Mia: What is the name of the book where we’ll find you? Can you tell us a little about it?
Jishu: I dwell in the pages of ‘Melancholic Delight’. I’m so grateful to my creator Tista Ray for bringing me to live in her romance novel; else I would have been lifeless and unknown for God knows how long.

Mia: Tell us a little about yourself. Where do you fit into the story? What should we know about you?
Jishu: I am Jishu, a boy who charms the people around. I was happy all by myself but then out of the blue love came, and I got tangled with an unfathomable girl. From the moment I fell under her gaze, she seemed to want me. Then why did she appear so mysterious to me? I’m confused. I love her ….but does she know to love? I’m doubtful. So, please read the novella and lend your helping hand to me. I am waiting…..for your suggestions.

Mia: What do you think of the author? Be honest. We won’t tell.
Jishu: I pleaded for days before she agreed to immortalize me in the pages of history. She’s so obstinate that I had to keep on nagging till she wrote my sweet romance on the blank sheets of paper.

Mia: How do you feel about the story you’re in?
Jishu: I like the way I teach Sri the gist of love, changing her life forever and urging her to spread the message of true love.

Mia: Do you like being a character in the book?
Jishu: Certainly! My author gave me an opportunity to let my words be heard to a million.

Mia: How do you see your future? Without giving anything away about the story, naturally.
Jishu: I will still be the same happy go lucky boy whom you may suddenly encounter one day. Beware of my love! It may even blow you off your feet!

Mia: What do you know about your author’s plans? Can we expect to see you in any future stories?
Jishu: I guess she has no plan for a sequel. Nevertheless she has promised me that I will be back in her thoughts every time she writes. I will be in her memory, that’s my only hope for now.

Mia: Let’s say they make a movie about this book. Who do you want to play you, and why?
Jishu: Do I have a choice? Let me tell you secretly, my creator’s too imaginative. She thinks she will make it into a film herself the day I will be born in the face of the earth as a human. So absurd! Shh…I should better keep shut.
