Deepika Manju Singh-An Emerging Writer in the Genre of Spirituality

Deepika Manju Singh is an inspirational writer of the novel "God Needs Us-An Atheist’s Experience," a spirituality practitioner, and life motivator. She is a plant biotechnologist by profession and has completed her Master’s in Plant Molecular Biology from the University of Delhi and has worked in many prestigious scientific research institutions like the Indian Agriculture Research Institute and the National Institute of Plant Genome Research at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. She is pursuing her PhD at the UNESCO-Regional Centre of Biotechnology, Faridabad, and is also a student of theology, exploring collaborative religious studies. She has compassion for the plight of Indian farmers. She started her awareness initiative in 2018 and contributes royalty from the book to underprivileged farmers. Currently, she is writing about Inter-Faith Unity, associated with many different religious organisations. She believes in unity and kindness among all beings and serves humanity. 

Her Novel, ‘God Needs Us’

She talks about her first book "God Needs Us-An Atheist’s Experience''. She mentions that it is not a very hard-core spiritual book. It is mainly based on humanity and our duties towards mankind. She is inspired by Sufism, where Loving God is Loving Humanity. Her book has a very simple message: to help each other and understand each other’s problems and trials. She believes that our Creator, our God, also wants this. That’s why He needs us to empower and strengthen human values in this world.

Deepika met Amar, a stranger who felt like someone very close to her, in the shrine of Nizamuddin Auliya, New Delhi. Due to Amar’s empathetic nature, she was able to share my anxieties and my suicidal intentions late at night. He shared the story of his after-death experience, which changed Deepika and proved that God needs us.

The main character of her book, Amar, was earlier an atheist on Earth and describes his journey after death. He met several people in hell and was honoured with all the learning from their lifetimes on Earth. A farmer who represented God’s pride in his hard work and optimism. A pious man who showed that God’s biggest teaching is to have patience. A prostitute made him realise the courage and respect God gives to all. A scientist’s contentment made him learn to accept the most significant reward from God alone. A patriot showed him how much his love and devotion to his country are appreciated by God. A third gender made him realise God’s non-discriminating nature towards all beings. And a mother caused an ultimate transformation in Amar by teaching him God’s presence in the unconditional love of motherhood.

Her life completely revolves around her scientific experiments in the lab. Writing a book and studying simultaneously was a very difficult task for her. It took 3 years to write and then 1 year to publish.

Her book also includes a selection of poems. She believes that poetry is a beautiful way to express one’s feelings, which cannot be conveyed effectively just with prose. In her book, for example, when a farmer, Gangaram, complains about his plight in a poem, God motivates and reassures him through his poem. These are Sufi poems.

She stated about one of the myths associated with her novel that "Many people think that I am personifying God in my book, but He speaks to the characters as an inner voice. He does not appear before them."

God and science are linked

She abolishes the misconception that being in science, you won’t believe in God. Many scientists are firm believers in God. The scientist who made an immense contribution to the field of genetics was a priest. His name was Gregor Mendel, and he is known as the Father of Genetics. She says,

"Scientists are known to make a change in society; we are deep thinkers. In my book, a whole chapter is dedicated to a scientist, Dr. Ram, whose life was very much influenced by the teachings of God. Understanding God requires a higher level of intelligence, and the scientific community is well suited for this."

Recently, she was awarded the title "Woman Writer of the Year" by Ukiyoto Publishing. Though she says that she never worked for any award, her aim is just to spread the message of this book to everyone.

Upcoming projects and a message to debut writers

She is planning to narrate a journey of a person in science through various cultures of the world, including India, in her upcoming second book. This work will reveal the reality, politics, emotions, and trials of scientists and how they relate to God. Her other projects are about interfaith unity. She is thinking of writing a love story too.

Along with this, she is a student of comparative religion, and she is very much interested in inter-religion and inter-faith unity and respects diverse people of different faiths. She thinks to make them united, we need to understand them. Learning about their faith is an essential step toward it. She said, "There is one very essential aspect every religion talks about, and that is HUMANITY."

Finally, her message for debut writers is, "Do believe in yourself. Whatever you write will have an impact, no matter how much it will be appreciated. Your writing is the real words that come out of your soul. "
