Author Interview with Ch Lady Diana

Hi readers, today we have Ch Lady Diana a fantastic writer with us. Let us chit chat about her work.

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

Ans: My name is Ch Lady Diana. I was born and brought up in the beautiful valley of Manipur. I have always loved literature particularly because it helped me to express. I call myself a day dreamer.

Ms.Diana

When did you start writing?

Ans: I have always written short poems or stories for myself. I just never thought of publishing them. The earliest write up, if I remember correctly, dates back to the days when I was 10 or something and I had written about my sleepover experience with my cousins. I also remember that I have always had problems in expressing myself verbally. I have been an introvert and there were phases into that too. So, once I needed to tell my dad about something which I couldn’t express and I ended up writing it in the form of a letter and placing it over his pillow. So writing, to the introvert child that I was, has helped and proved to be therapeutic.

When did you published first?

Ans: I published my first novel The Mirage of Love in 2015. The novel has many questions and observations about the society by a woman. So, it carries the dialectics of a feminist but equally important for anyone who wants to understand individuality.

Describe Diana  in day to day life?

Ans: The everyday-Diana is a workaholic. The recurring days make her say, “OMG I can’t be Prometheus.” Monotony kills her and she wants regular changes in her life. She likes to take on different projects and learn new things. She loves her job. She is always eager to learn. She loves to read. The regular Diana wakes up on time to finish some chores and make some time to write in the morning. The regular Diana goes to her office and likes facing challenges and learning anything new. Most of the time, the regular Diana handles her writing career during the time that spans from post-dinner to the wee hours of the night.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

Ans: I like to watch movies, watch documentaries on Netflix, irritate my sister, dote on my son, cook for my family (when mood commands), explore restaurants and eat something good, read books, etc. I am a warehouse of activities.

Tell us more about your book ?

Ans: Lovin’ A Hero is a romance fiction that explores the complex issues of second love, giving life a second chance, second marriage, parental-trust issues and changing gender roles. It’s a funny narrative so people are actually laughing while reading it. While it is also tied to a string of emotional moments, no different from the ones that we go through during hard times when we start questioning our intelligence, our abilities or we withdraw altogether from any form of human connection because we are not able to rely or trust again and the times when we even think that we are facing some sort of existential crisis. Personally, my favourite moments are the ones with the sky lanterns and the rain moment.

What do you think about modern day relationships?

Ans: Modern day relationships are complex. I think relationships have always been complex. It’s just that today, people are more aware and hence, they express better about their desires, issues, stress, etc. People today are more open to explore. I don’t believe in the fact that the previous generations had better relationships.  Young people of today want their relationships to work as much.

Is physical intimacy important in a relationship ?

Ans: Yes, it’s important. Not that it’s the sole important issue nevertheless it’s important.

How do you manage your writing time?

Ans: It’s a lot of running on the treadmill metaphorically speaking. Between raising a kid and a full time job, it’s very difficult to get the much-wanted time to write. Since three years now, or to say more precisely since the time I have focused myself on the writing career, my time to write can happen anytime and anywhere. I take notes on my phone or laptop when I am travelling, the couple of hours in the morning before office is very precious, the hours after everybody has slept is even more precious, writing means your light is always on. Can’t help it. But I enjoy every bit of it. There is no other way I would prefer doing this. I feel very lucky to be around like-minded people. I am in a circle of so many creative minds who keep motivating me even when I am suffering from some kind of mental blockage…so it’s a new kind of lesson every day.

Your favorite writer and why?

Ans: This is the most difficult question. I really don’t know how to answer this one. I am a bookaholic. I like to buy books even when I can’t find the time to read it. I am a literature person, so my muse has always been the Classic writers of Europe. I have studied drama, so I like reading the scripts too. Right from Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Ibsen to post-colonial works especially by Spivak, to J K Rowling, Amish…all of them are my favourite. Even Sidney Sheldon and Sophie Kinsella. I travel in the metro and if I see somebody reading a book, I am weird enough to sneak a peek at the cover to check it out. I am really not discriminate with authors.

What are your upcoming projects?

Ans: I am currently working on about four projects. The latest one will take a year or more, it’s about livelihood in politically torn places and I am focusing on the cultural and political dialectics of my home state Manipur. It is titled The Vanquished Paradise.

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.

Ans: The most important tip is don’t follow the hysteria. Create your own concepts. Learn to read between the lines and work hard enough to create your own name anywhere you go.

Diana  in one sentence.

Ans: I will always be the day-dreamer that I am.

Thank you for the wonderful answers Ms.Daina. Wish you all the very best for your both professional and writing career. For author interviews, please write an email to prabhu@prabhuprasad.in

Rutvi Patel shares her poetry- Tere Ishq Ka Paigam

Tere ishq ka paigam inayat se mila hai muje…

Khawabida parindo ko mujse be-intehan ishq ho gaya hai shayad…!!

Badi nazakat se tanhayian bhi apna rukh badalti ja rahi hai…

Aaj phir koi phool tere mere milne ki dastan bade hi noor se kisi taare ko suna rahi hai shayad…!!

Tu inayat hai mere liye… Us khuda ko apne bigde bacche se behad mohhobat ho gayi hai shayad…!!

Tu ruhaniyat sa lagta hai muje… Sukoon ko tu shidaat se raas aa gaya hai shayad…!!

Tuje har duva me shamil karna riwayat sa ho gaya hai…

Ab zindagi ko suljane ke liye tujse ulazna lazmi sa ho gaya hai shayad…!!

Tere ishq ka paigam inayat se mila hai muje…

Khawabida parindo ko mujse be-intehan ishq ho gaya hai shayad…!!

The black and white love story of the sun and moon – Sonam Keswani

People often ask me the reason behind the name of my quotes “black and white stories”, here’s a short tale to define the reason- Sun is scintillating and bright, he is the synonym of ebullience and is full of life. He is the debonair always dressed in WHITE. He is never alone, always surrounded by chaos and crowd; trees, rivers, mountains, flowers, seven seas all are his mates. His bright rays are the hope and the glittering smile for each eternity on the Earth. He is indispensable for the existence of the mankind and imperative need of the Earth.

On the other hand, alluring Moon is always in her solitude and unchaperoned. Her only company is the deep ocean, where she discerns her reflection, pure white and amorous beauty which casts on the dramatic waves of the sea. Each night she dresses her self best, with disparity in her BLACK nyctophile, each time she appears more beautiful and glamourous than the previous night.

Time passed for both, Sun heard divinity and calmness of Moon’s beauty from his mates and Moon heard apotheosis about Sun from her only companion, Ocean. Ocean exclaimed to the moon, the way Sun made day beautiful and mutates everything to full of life, the way things are not gloom and serene during the day time.

Deep inside the two hearts, a common desire to meet each other was born and so they strived to chase each other, they played hide and seek, and smiled from the corner of lips but none of them could acquire the probability to reveal. The sequence continued in succession and so the chase did. The concupiscence to embrace each other increased with each passing day, they endeavoured to see each other, but all the struggle in vain and they were left in dismay.

The transcendental one almighty gives a chance to each, and for the couple ‘that one day’ was their chance. Finally their prayers didn’t go unheard and they met. Speechless and motionless they stood in the presence of each other; overwhelmed with pouring feeling of completeness. They embraced each other and loved each other until their heart content, entire existence witnessed their amour and were amazed at the crossed boundaries of infinite love.

World ceased exist for the two and time came at halt, they believed they were the only two in the entire universe, they never needed the third. They were so merged in each other that they didn’t bother the surveillance by the dark wretched Earth, which stood in the corner and watched them with bewilderment but said nothing, it kept quiet for the sake of love.

Suddenly a jolt brought the two back into attention and their gaze fell on the dark Earth, the couple didn’t realise that their unison blocked indispensable Sun ray from reaching the earth and thus obstructing him from fulfilling his duties and responsibilities. Mankind was at danger and so was the existence of Earth. The moon sacrificed her love and left silently without saying a word, Sun fulfilled his obligations but was alone and never happy again without his love, so he chased the moon and moon left as soon as he come. Thus black and white or white and black untouched yet untamed.

When I first look into your eyes!! – Kriti Singh

When I first looked at in your eyes,
I found something magical hidden in your eyes,
I found the love which was lasting till infinitude,
I found the feelings which was everlasting till affliction.
When I first looked at in your eyes,
I believe something extra ordinary hidden in You,
I believe our love lasting throughout the Spring,Summer,Autumn and Winter,
I believe our love lasting throughout the murkiness.
When I first looked at in your eyes,
I know something special hidden in your emotions,
I know the love lasts in every storm and ups & downs,
I know the love lasts in everything good or worse.
When I first looked at in your eyes,
I felt God has given me a special blessing,
I felt we are meant to be,
I felt no matter the circumstances we ‘ll be together forever,
I felt day & night, good & bad, happy & sad,
Our love endures forever!!
