Explaining about the characters in his story, Seth said, "The story of `A Suitable Boy` is 60 years old and many of the characters would obviously have grown old," and added ,``I don`t intend to fill all the gaps.``

Seth said that he hasn’t revisited his book, ‘A Suitable Boy’ as he thinks it is far too big. But he knows he has to do it.

The authour also talked about his love for writing poetries. It is just that he has not been publishing them.
