In fact even my short autobiographical narrations do not get listeners from my own son or other young members in my family.. So, I am worried, how can I get readers if I write my autobiography. Hence I am no going for any misadventure.
For this it will be ideal to note down the major incidences by the person himself/herself. No doubt that some of them might be useful for some readers. The way in which one had faced certain problems in life and the solutions adapted would be, perhaps, useful for others.
No doubt that there will be positive and negative incidences in one's life. Both must be covered in writing.
Personally, I have already started an attempt to scribble down my memories. Actually several stages or incidences have already been put in black and white. First two chapters are more or less over. The materials for the remaining chapters are randomly written, to be consolidated later.

Do what inspires you !!
Who will read, enjoy, understand and follow your own biography or my own biography. In this busy world, even our own family members won't have time to go through your and my biography. It would be an useless attempt except for self satisfaction. I feel so.

As in the current forum we discuss the things & come to know the facts shared by others. For each one of us the experiences are different & accordingly the submissions makes an impressions on us. Often the submissions are repeated in some way but many are new to this forum. Few of the submissions are also lead to the winning of points as well as bucks.
So in appreciation, I would like the fellow members to initiate the step & keep adding in the coming days. Let's start & who knows you will be remembered for ever with this smallest work.

The problem is how to decide we have done very well in life in adverse circumstances that many people can't even imagine.
In short, the person and his/her life should be worthy of being written down as a biography or autobiography. The life of our freedom fighters, the legendary Milkha Singh, in current time Mr.Sundar Pichai etc, there would be many examples. These books would be willingly published and widely read.
In reality, there would be certain phases in most people's life that would be worth sharing, this can be authored in a simple language and made available on-line or in print media. These specific scenarios that were dealt by would be accessed by people in need. For instance, there are small books and online diaries available of cancer survivors, raising a child with autism or a challenged child in an equally challenging environment, how to survive an ordeal wherein death was inevitable, a modest rags to riches story etc.
So it is better to keep writing our own ways and means of life in a book as and when you get a chance and keeping with you will refer in future if you met with a similar situation.You need not get it printed but the same book can be handed over to your children so that they may go through if they feel that will help them,
About my success in my career, a newspaper in the Telugu language published about 7 years back and Silicon India also had an interview with me and published the same. The newspaper cutting was laminated by my assistants and presented it to me and it will be in my house with me.
But it is a good idea and people can write if they want and can publish and also upload on their own blog. Maybe possible that in future their next generation wants to read this autobiography.
Honesty is the best policy.
If one writes it in chronological order it becomes a biography. Now the quality of this biography will depend upon the creative and language command of a person who is authoring it. If it turns out to be a masterpiece in the literary sense, people will like to read it. If it is a mediocre attempt, it will be left unnoticed.
