Writing

Nishant is a budding author and has authored two books and is working on more. Nishant began writing not by compulsion or with any particular goal in mind, he started writing as a means to express himself and to put forth his expression in the simplest ways possible, for he had realised having read hundreds of law books, that there is far too many technical and complicated works of writing and far too few simple ones. When Nishant began writing his first book a simple yet unique Labor Law Manual, he knew he did not want to stick to purely academic writing. Nishant wanted to go beyond academics to create simple and effective work for large audiences, he believes there is already a lot of good work which is super-specialised and technical in nature, but very little which is general and for the masses.

Nishant does not confine his work to legal subjects, he has also authored a thriller-romance fiction book, which is due to hit the shelves very soon.

Nishant is also a guest columnist on matters of law, policy, society and digital industry for various new age media outlets and blogs.
