Q – Sneha, you were quite popular in the literary world and then you suddenly got married and disappeared. Why?
Ans. – I didn’t disappear. I was writing frequently. It was just that I didn’t work on a full-fledged project. I just wanted to spend some quality time with my family and enjoy the new phase of my life. Besides, I was also busy in conducting Interactive Speaking Sessions with various Institutes.
Q – Don’t you think you are promoting identity crisis for women by changing your name especially when you used to be a feminist yourself?
Ans. – I am still a feminist. And the perspective of your question inclines more towards ‘feminazism’ than feminism. Independent identity shouldn’t mean dominance or ignorance of relations. Women who establish themselves independentl
y giving due respect and love to relations are more empowered in my opinion. I changed my pen name to show my love and respect for my husband signifying his importance in my life. My pen name signifies our togetherness, our oneness. It is an entirely personal decision. Besides, my certified surname remains unchanged ever since I got admission in School.

However, I believe in the culmination of prowess and I am always trying to do the same.
