Book interview with Amrita Chakrabarty

Hello readers, today we have inspirational young lady Amrita on board with us.

Let’s have a chit chat with her.

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

My warm greetings to everybody who is reading this. You already know my name and my work “That click is all it takes to fall in love forever”. Apart from being Author Amrita, I am a Bengali born in Assam and brought up in Uttar Pradesh. I did my graduation from University of Delhi and then started working with EY as an auditor. Along with that I did my chartered accountancy from ACCA, London. After working for 4 years I quit my job to write my first novel. My book is already in the market and giving me lovely reviews. I also run an online consultancy, Umang, for people who need emotional help.

When did you start writing?

I started writing way back in college when I used to pen down my own debates and declamations. Then I wrote some short episodes for my personal blog, but I took up writing professionally last year with my debut novel.

When you published first?

As a school kid my articles used to be published in my community magazine, however professionally as a novelist, it was August, 2016

Describe Amrita in day to day life?

I am a very moody person with varied interests and keep looking for different things that might interest me. People call me their positive storehouse, whenever anyone close to me feels low they just come up to me. A few minutes of talking from my side and they are high on spirit gain. But even I have some lazy days. Give me coffee and a good book to read and I can happily spend my entire day doing nothing else. But unfortunately, I have so much to do these days that I am actually missing being lazy. You can say I am just like any other normal happy to go girl who wants to live life to the fullest.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

I like playing badminton, cricket and chess. Apart from that I like to read a lot. If not a book, I make sure to read at least some articles or journals every day. But my favorite hobby is watching south Indian movies. I literary can’t sleep until a south movie is not run before me. Every day I go to sleep with my phone in my hand watching a Telugu /Tamil movie on hot star or YouTube.

Tell us more about your book?

That click is all it takes to fall in love is not just a book but an experience of someone who is very close to me today. I met her when I was working in the Netherlands. Life is not always a bed of roses and neither was it so in Meera’s case. What I heard from common friends now is that Meera is the coolest girl you would have ever met. Living life as it comes was all she believed in. Positivity was so much inbuilt in her that people used to come and talk to her whenever they were messed up just to get some motivation and positive vibes. She was working in the Netherlands when she met Vihaan. The boy who changed the meaning of life for her. Never before did she love anybody the way she loved him. The rest of the world just disappeared whenever they were together. She was sure she would spend the rest of her life laughing heartily with Vihaan. Their love story was as simple as perfect. Vihaan was all she needed.

But suddenly she just disappeared. I invested 3 weeks in tracking down that girl in India whom I had met in the Netherlands and all I knew about her was her name, city and the high school she went to.  When I met her months later in India, she had quit her job in Netherlands, gave up her Investment banking career, was undergoing psychiatric treatment but was still doing what she was best at, bringing smiles to every face she met. She had adopted an NGO and was working to give the children there all she could. But why was she being treated for shock brain damage and severe depression. What had happened to her? If she was in India, where was Vihaan? Did the picture-perfect love story end? Was Vihaan the reason she gave up everything? Can your love for someone be so strong that you choose your downfall to keep the other person happy?

Read the book to know what actually happened between Meera and Vihaan.

How do you manage your writing time?

I don’t have any fixed time for writing. Whenever I feel like I either start scribbling in my personal diary or work on my next book project.

What do you think of modern day relationships?

Umm…I think they lack the true spirit to stay connected. But again, I should not generalize this statement. I have seen some couples who truly give relationship goals and have also seen people who are together just for the moment or to have sex. But a large no. of relationship % lack honesty, loyalty and the intention to stay together forever, that is the biggest reason they are unable to survive.

What do you think about cheating in relationships?

There is nothing to think about it. Cheating is something purely unacceptable to me. If you are unhappy, have the guts and talk about it to your partner and see if things can be sorted, if not then mutually breakup but please do not cheat. Breakups hurt a lot but trust me cheating kills.

How important physical intimacy is in a relationship?

That entirely depends upon the couple in question. Everybody has their own way of thinking, likes and dislikes. I think that’s an individual choice whether they want to be physically involved or not. But yes, many surveys do say that couples that are physically involved along with their emotional attachment are happier.

Your favorite writer and why?

J.K Rowling. She is undoubtedly the best. She made me believe in the existence of the other world. The perfection with which she writes seriously creates magic. I also enjoy reading Paulo Coelho and Robin Sharma. Whenever I am in a mood for some light read, I move to Chetan Bhagat and Durjoy Datta.

What are your upcoming projects?

I am currently writing the sequel to my first book, yet untitled.

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.

I will again say what I keep repeating everywhere – “Give your heart and soul to writing and enjoy your work. Do not hesitate to take criticism; it helps you move one step closer to your goals.”

Book Interview with Ashi Kalim

Hello Friends,

Today, we have Ashi Kalim on board. Let’s talk about her recently published. Ashi Kalim is a guest poet in an anthology under various categories. Her poem is published in Elysian Literary Journal.

 

Ashi Kalim – The Writer.

Can you please introduce to the world of literature?

I introduce myself to world of literature in English. A cry is enough to greet the earth & a published work is enough and takes lesser introductory effort worldwide in the stream of whichever Literature.

# The Day Before… I DIED MATRYOSHKA in East is my first published Novel & yes I am a Debutant writer.

Can you please tell us about your next project?

I am neck deep in my next project but still in early stages. Probably it’s a historical character, mixed with cheeky love-story (My kind of favourite) as a woman & moreover I would like to return back to my first love POETRY & BLOGGING.

When you did first published?

My first written text valued was a short story on my class-teacher, Sister Marie Theresa; say 20 pages and I got all applauded during the school assembly. Though I have been published before but it was in children books only.

What are your hobbies?

Hobby is a craft that develops with experience. Writing was a hobby for me and see where I went for…..But seriously its gardening, I own a full hundred’s of varieties of Cactus and Bonsai’s too.

Who is your favourite writer?

There are many but whom I really admire is Kiran Desai, Jhumpa Lahiri, Arundhati Roy. Train to Pakistan by Khushwant Singh is my all-time favourite.  And how can I escape RUSKIN BOND’s” The Night Train at Deoli”. I admire their trademark style.

How to you manage writing time?

Well, during the day I am a mother and at Night it’s a writer craving for words and thoughts to feast up my soul. Thought is not prisoned by time, it offshoots anytime so at other times …if I scribble it’s my phone which manages it.

Can you please share some tips for budding writers?

If I can ……anyone can. Keep your mind, thoughts, and feelings moving. It’s said “Don’t kill your enemy by sword; kill them by your PEN!!”

The biggest outbreak is penning your thoughts on paper, no matter be it English, French, Hindi or any Language. FEAST YOUR THOUGHT.

What have you written and why?

I have written an untouched & untold part of History. I think historical fiction is one of the excellent forms to explore and unearth the hidden feminine voices lost deep in the sand dunes of history. As a writer this is my mission to fight for the lost voices in history and help them speak their fair share of stories in the making of nation and history.

Can you please tell us more about your book?

This is a book about love, Betrayal and Hope. HOPE makes all things possible. All of us have our share of joys & sorrow in life. It depends on our jurisdiction of how we face it. The Real heroine of the story is a protagonist and sees life with dull lenses. Gradually she develops a liking for a Prince from India who teaches her how to Love? The Love Story of a RUSSIAN dictator Josef Stalin’s Daughter that changed the world order forever…

Describe Ashi in day to day life?

Ashi is a dreamer, traveller, friend, mother, poet, photographer & a writer and has a killer sense of-humor!! I am a winner in my own self as I have HOPE …my biggest asset of life.

Tell us more about your dreams?

I want to be known as serious writer & no soft-love-story types. The loss of political power and the mighty strength of character have thrown female out of the history-walls. But we don’t know is this true and false?

I think, as a genre ‘Historical Fiction’ should come out of its tell-tale sagas of man and voice woman as an equal partner in history. It will help future generation understand history in a more gender-neutral vision.

Book interview with Ms.Nalini Priyadarshini

Friends, today we have on board the bold and beautiful writer Nalini Priyadarshini.

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

I am Nalini, the author of Doppelganger in My House and co author of Lines Across Oceans.  My poems have appeared in numerous literary journals, podcasts and international anthologies including Mad Swirl, Camel Saloon, Dukool, In-flight Magazine, Yellow Chair Review. I am presently working on a travel based fiction in collaboration with my husband as we both are ardent travellers.

When did you start writing?

I was extremely fond of reading as a child. In those days I tried keeping a journal and wrote story books complete with pictures. I also enjoyed writing letters and had several pen-pals. Got interested in poetry when I was in college and wrote in both Punjabi and English for our college magazine. I was also the student editor of English section of Deepshikha, our college magazine and my short story on female feticide won the first prize for the best article. After I started working, writing was reduced to a stray poem now or then scribbled in haste at the back of books or notebooks most of which were eventually lost.

My second and more serious inning with writing came after the birth of my second child. I quit work to be a full time stay-at-home mom. Suddenly I realized that wiping dirty bottoms all day did not fulfill me. I missed the company and conversation with other grownups. I was lonely and miserable. At such a time, writing came to my rescue and I started writing poetry which proved to be cathartic. I started a blog ‘Twilight Musing’ and started putting my poems over there. It was beginning of a new and exciting association with other poets and writers I found online.

When you published first?

I published first in 2011. In fact, I stumbled upon a call for submission on facebook while browsing. Brian Wixon, a Canadian writer and published was publishing an anthology. He also made a group with all the poets that he included in the book. It was exciting to read and share poetry in those groups and a great learning experience too. That was the beginning of my tryst with anthologies and literary journals that I not only love to read but also write for.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

Reading remains my first love. I enjoy watching movies, traveling, gardening, hanging out with friends and cooking for them. I am open to new ideas and adventures and one of those people who would try anything at least once.

Tell us more about your books?

Doppelganger In My House is my solo poetry collection. Poems included in this book were written over a span of 10 years or so. Since it was not planned in advance, there is no thematic unity in poems. There are love poems rubbing shoulders with food poems and funny, irreverent poems while jostling with existential and political poems. The book is roughly divided into 5 sections. Each section starts with a four line poem that sets the mood for succeeding poems.

My second book, Lines Across Oceans, is a collection of love poems written in collaboration with an American poet, D. Russel Micnhimer. Russel has been writing poetry for over forty five years and has been conferred with Poet Laureate for his book, Notes To Be Left With Gatekeeper.  Along with free verse, various Japanese poetic forms have been used to create classic piece of poetry included in this book. Writing Lines Across Oceans has been an extremely enriching experience as I, for the first time, learnt the discipline needed to write form poetry.

I cannot speak about these two books without mentioning the wholehearted support and encouragement of my mentor Dr. Madan G Gandhi that made these books possible.

How do you manage your writing time?

Though I would love to have some sort of daily writing routine, I have none at the moment. Poems have their own whims and fancies and come to me when they are ready. I try to capture them and if I don’t they just float away.

Your favorite writer and why?

There are several writers and poets that I love to read. It will be quite unfair to        name just one. And then, I keep discovering new writers whose writings fascinate me. T.S. Eliot, Khalil Gibran, Kamala Das, Khushwant Singh, Ruskin Bond, Gabriel Garcia Marquez besides several contemporary poets and writers have been a source of inspiration.

 

What are your upcoming projects?

I am working on a travel based fiction for adolescents/young adults in collaboration with my husband, Vikas Singh who is an avid biker, traveler and story teller. Also, I am planning to engage more in translating and writing literary articles than I am at the moment.

Any tips to the upcoming generation of writers.

One should read and write as much as possible to improve one’s craft and never rest on past laurels. And yes, always follow your heart without worrying too much about what others think.

Nalini in one sentence.

Oh, Nalini is too complex to fit in a single sentence. My poetry is mostly as attempt to understand my own self in relation with the world I live in and people who cross my path. The journey of self discovery is long and I have just started.

Thank you so much Nalini for the honest answers. I wish you all the best for your upcoming projects.

Book interview with 31 miles writer Vinita Sharma Bakshi

Hello friends, today we have Vinita Bakshi, 31 miles writer. She talks about woman issues in her latest book. Let’s have a chit-chat about her book.

How did you go about carving the character of your protagonist Mansa? Is it inspired from a real life character?

Mansa is a contemporary South Asian urban woman. There is a Mansa in each one of us. We often kill her trying to do our best for the multiplicity of roles that we ourselves and others assign to us.

 

What is the story behind the intriguing title of 31 Miles?

Well….You have to read the book to know that J

How, in your opinion, is social media affecting day to day lives of the younger generation?

All kinds of media and especially Social Media is working on us round the clock. How it will transform and shape relationships only future will tell.

Have you always been writing? Where does your creative drive come from?

I have always been writing something or the other. But this was the first time I thought of publishing. And God was kind. Creative drive comes from empathy and a desire to present complicated and under the carpet issues in a healthy interesting manner so as to connect with a maximum number of people.

What in your idea is a perfect family life? How challenging is it for the new age woman to maintain work-life balance?

Perfection is a state we have to aspire for. We have to work on it. The moment we think something is perfect, the decay begins.

Working woman is nothing new. Women have always worked, at home and outside, whether in fields or elsewhere. It’s a different story that it isn’t suitably acknowledged and rewarded.

Book interview with Shravya Gunipudi

Hello friends, today we have a gifted author Shravya Gunipudi with us on board.

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

A Chartered Accountant by profession, and an author by passion, I love to taste a bit of everything in life. Well, except dancing, of course! I love DIYs and am obsessed with being organized. I was the college topper in my intermediate (CBSE) and was a district level sports player. Additionally, I am also a public speaker and that has helped me a lot in overcoming my insecurities.

When did you start writing?

The first ‘published’ work of mine was an article about rain in a newspaper called ‘Deccan Chronicle’. I was eight years old and that article also got me my first 100 bucks!

When did you publish first?

At a slightly serious level, my first publication was a poem in IIM-C’s anthology called ‘Persona’. This was almost three years ago. Now, I am a part of 17 anthologies and have my very own novel called ‘Turning Back Time’.

Describe Shravya in day to day life?

In my daily life, my best friend and my worst enemy is TIME. In a single day I travel 40 kms, work 10 hours a day, squeeze in a workout, read books (mostly to review), manage my blog, edit my manuscript (Hint: Second Novel!), make something crafty and do my daily chores. It is hectic, it is tiring, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

I love to make stuff. Decorative items, amateur paintings, crafts and anything of that sort. When I go to any store and see something I really want to have, my mind doesn’t think ‘Can I buy this?’… It wonders, ‘How do I make this?’. Or maybe, I am just cheap! But, yes. That is my hobby.

Tell us more about your book?

Turning back time is a mixture of genres. Its recipe has romance, drama, tragedy, psychology and a hint of mystery in it. It didn’t take me long to write because I knew in my heart how I wanted it to work out. That’s very rare for me. Generally, I go with the flow and see where that takes my writing. But with this one, I was sure. Everyone can relate or connect to it in one way or another.

How do you manage your writing time?

The same way I manage to brush my teeth, bathe or every single day, no matter how late I am. When something becomes a part of your life, you don’t have to ‘make’ time for it. But, I think one gift I am blessed with is the ability to find ten minutes somewhere and just make it work. I don’t need peaceful surroundings and hours of time to write. It just comes to me.

Your favorite writer and why?

Sophie Hannah is amazing. She knows how to play with readers’ minds. Her mysteries are truly mysterious and that inspires me. Her books will be 400 page or more and still won’t fail to impress you. As an author, she is my standard. As a reader, she is my inspiration.

What are your upcoming projects?

I have my second novel coming up soon. I won’t be revealing its title yet. I want to play with that part a bit. I am very excited about this one because it leans towards the genre of mystery and romance. It’s a risky shot, but it wouldn’t be worth the excitement if it wasn’t, right?

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.

I am hardly qualified to answer this question because I’m in my early twenties, myself. But here are a few things I have learnt. Find balance, not excuses. Focus on quality, not quantity. Let the tears out every once in a while. And finally, do what makes your heart happy.

Shravya in one sentence.

Calm on the outside, a storm on the inside.

Connect with Shravaya

 

 

Thank you Shravya for your time. I hope you will be an inspiration to the millions soon.

Book interview with Ayushi Singh

Hello Friends, today we have the latest sensational writer  of New Delhi Ms Ayushi Singh. Her words are as follows:

Read, as it can heal….

Read, although it’s an illusion…

Read as it carry those answers…which Reality don’t!

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

Literature for me is like a playground for a kid. After getting tired from work, world or life I often find solace in this world. No person is capable enough to listen or understand you; however the ultimate power is in pen and paper. Hence, pen is the mightier one and a paper with words is full of wisdom.

When did you start writing?

I started writing when I was 13. Since I was an introvert person, I never used to discuss my observations about life with my parents or anyone. My diary came to rescue and listened to me whole heartedly.

When you published first?

I have been writing stories, poems and articles in various magazines and newspapers, however my work was first published on January 22, 2017.’In the Canopy of Life‘, brought a drastic change in my life. I will never fail to mention the team, My Books Publications, who were the reason of this wonderful transition in my life.

Describe your routine ,Ayushi !

I love the transition period of each day and hence make sure that I am awake at that time. By transition period I mean, Dusk and Dawn. These are my favourite parts on each day, when I spiritually connect with nature.

I don’t believe in routine, each day for me is an adventure.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

Apart from writing, I am learning vocal and instrumental music. Trying to befriend my guitar which my dad presented me on my birthday. I don’t think the word ‘Hobby’ exists now, so you can count MUSIC as another passion.

Tell us more about your book?

The content of this book is a compilation of poems and stories in Hindi and in the English Language. It cannot be categorized under any particular genre as it is versatile and possess articles from the different aspect of life. Words of a struggling teenager boy, A love story with incredible sacrifices, A letter by a bride to groom, A message by the Almighty to humanity, A story of worthy friendship, and an ode to dreams.
Some prose are rhythmic others are sporadic. It’s a small gift to humanity with the motive to extend in many other versions.

How do you manage your writing time?

I believe whatever you love has the highest priority in your life, above all the work, relationships or pleasures. I never do time management to write as I am NOT a believer of ROUTINE WORK! Whenever any thought or idea pops up in my mind I capture it on paper or on mobile phone.

Your favorite writer and why?

Dan Brown for his exclusive presentation in the domain of adventure and suspense. JK Rowling for exceptionally intriguing imagination, Shakespear’s  dialogues, Wordsword for his choice of writing and Robert Frost for his evergreen inspiration!

What are your upcoming projects?

My upcoming projects are related to fictional work involving social reforms or a kind of a friendly gesture to Pakistan, our neighboring country.

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.

Pursue your passion and don’t leave anything incomplete in your life, be it any task, project, communication, relationship, commitment or promise.

If you had to choose, which person would you consider as a mentor?

My father is my MENTOR, TEACHER and GUIDE. Though he is not renowned in this field, however I am extremely inspired by his thought process! He is not a writer by profession however an artist at heart.

What are the easiest and the most difficult thing about writing?

The most difficult thing about writing is there are still very less words to describe one’s imagination and hence the writer has to choose most apt and appropriate word at a particular place.

The easiest thing is ‘IMAGINATIONS ARE BOUNDLESS’. To write about anything is very easy as it is an art with of course NO PROTOCOLS OR LIMITS!
