In this introductory session, Arundhati opens up the world of writing to you, telling his own story and inviting you to take your first steps towards becoming a writer.
You cannot become good at something you are not passionate about. Arundhati explains why passion is crucial when you want to be a writer.
In this section, learn why it is important to build a habit of writing regularly and how regularly writing about topics you relate to helps to improve your thinking and communication.
Arundhati explains why it is necessary to do your research as it adds credibility and authenticity to your writing.
Learn how to write a comprehensive outline and organise your thoughts into a coherent sequence that grasps your readers’ attention.
Make the best use of your creativity, and learn how to write striking dialogues that your readers will remember long after they finish reading your work.
As we all know, it’s always the first and the last impressions that make the maximum impact! Arundhati shows you how to craft that perfect roundup to your story and how a good title can go a long way.
Your first draft will not be your final version, so keep making all the changes you see fit so that your story only becomes better and better! Eliminate the unnecessary bits and add a paragraph or two where you think deserves more information. Arundhati shows you how!
Arundhati gives you some practical advice on how to start your career in writing, how to maintain your career as a professional writer and the importance of staying true to yourself.
An author and activist who began her career writing screenplays, Arundhati Roy was catapulted to worldwide fame with the success of her bestselling novel The God of Small Things, for which she won the Man Booker Prize in 1997. In 2017 her second novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, was published, which was chosen for the Man Booker Prize 2017 Long List and was also nominated as a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction in January 2018. In 2002, she won the Lannan Foundation’s Cultural Freedom Award, following which in 2003 she received “special recognition” as a Woman of Peace at the Global Exchange Human Rights Awards, and the Sydney Peace Prize in May 2004. In 2011, Arundhati Roy was awarded the Norman Mailer Prize for Distinguished Writing and was featured in the 2014 list of Time 100, the 100 most influential people in the world.
In a journey where people seek ways to express not to show, I would like to learn how to arrange my words in a poetic way, I want my words to give justice to the way I want to express.
Please do write a sequel to God of Small things..rnPlease do comment on my debut novel Thorns of Love...please mam
To be really honest, I am not that inspired from arundhati roy but her abrupt approach and writing style woo me to a great extent.

Every class starts with a petition. The purpose of a petition is simple, it helps us know what classes our users want to take. Any user can create a petition for the celebrity instructor of their choice. After a petition is published, potential students sign up to show their support. The more the demand, the more likely it is for the class to happen. Only when a threshold of sign ups is reached (Usually 10,000), is the class considered to be made for the platform. Once the threshold of sign ups is reached, we use the petition as a weapon in our effort to influence the celebrity to teach this class. Of course, the class is dependent on the celebrity's approval and availability. And even when agreed to, the class will not happen overnight as it takes time to develop, film, and edit the high quality courses we offer. When the classes go live, those who signed up are notified and begin their learning journey.
The start of these any class on Xpert is dependent on the approval and availability of the Xpert. In our effort to influence the celebrity, we run a petition to determine the demand for his/her class. Once the threshold of sign ups is reached, a celebrity gets the green light to make their Xpert class. Of course, this will not happen overnight as it takes time to develop, film, and edit the high quality courses we offer. When the classes go live, those who signed up are notified and begin their learning journey.
Classes at Xpert are an immersive online experience. The syllabus for any class on Xpert is decided by the instructor. Each class includes pre-recorded video content, a class workbook with documents supporting the video class, assignments as well as some activities that you may or may not take on. The videos are viewable at any time and may be paused, fast forwarded, rewound or re watched as many times as you would like. Students may also utilize our blog for class discussions to share their thoughts, upload their performances and provide feedback on others' work.
Each class would be a total of 2 - 5+ hours of video content, which will be split up into individual video lessons according to narrower topics in the class. In addition to the lesson videos, each course has a downloadable PDF workbook that you can use to supplement the videos and a student group that you can use to exchange feedback and discuss the lessons.
Students who complete the entire course will receive a letter of completion (Downloadable PDF) signed by the instructor. The certificate would state your participation in the online class taught by the instructor on the specific topic.
The classes have no finish time. You may do the class at your own convenience. On completion of the class, you get a Certificate that states you completed the class.
The syllabus of the classes is decided by the instructor. The instructor takes inputs from the petition sign ups wherein applicants write what they would really like to be taught in class. The entire lesson plan will be on the class page as soon as the class is live.
If any petition does not reach its threshold of signups, the effort that the celebrity would have put in is not justified. Therefore, the actual production of the class will be delayed until the threshold of signups (usually 10,000) is received.
Classes on Xpert will be free of cost. However, some lessons in those classes that are of premium quality, would be locked and would have a certain access fee that a student will need to pay to access it.
Everyone who signs the Pre-Enrollment form to reserve their seat in the class will be notified as soon as the class is in production stage and deemed to go live in the near future. As soon as it goes live, all students will be alerted by email.
It all started with a dream. A dream to learn acting from Bollywood superstar, Kangana Ranaut. A dream of an ambitious Indian millennial, Aarti Kumar. Aarti was a makeup artist by profession, but an aspiring actress by passion. What we saw in Aarti is common across all our youth today. A passion and fire to succeed, but frustration at the lack of guidance. So we thought what if Aarti could learn acting from Kangana? What if we ALL could learn from the best for FREE ? So we built Xpert & took it upon ourselves to do the impossible. To turn celebrities to teachers and fans to students. Through Xpert, anyone can request/ support an online class from any celebrity. Once a class receives significant support we move towards producing it and making it available to all for FREE.
