  1. What brought you in this writing world?

To be very honest, I was always fascinated about writing and literature. I used to write poetries and short fiction stories since childhood. Moreover, I had a dream of writing my own novel from the schooldays. That’s why certainly, I am here today giving you my interview.

  1. What after writing?

See, I have several dreams that I always keep following. So, my next step would probably be the masters in business administration and after that others goals too. (Of course, keeping my writing parallel with further steps)

  1. What made you write The Way She Loved?

Clearly, there was two genuine reason behind writing down ‘The way she loved’. One is to fulfil my dreams of be an author. Second one is to avoid or can say compensate, the bad happenings of my life. I believe that everything happens for a reason, all we need is to convert it for a good one. So, this one also played very important role. Once you read the novel, you can easily get the reason behind writing ‘The way she loved’.

  1. Tells us a name of the character that resembles you?

Life keeps moving on and people too. So, I won’t like to consider any character as me because everyone has some own unbeatable originality and prospective. However, I see myself in a person (better not to mention the name) to whom I concord at various parameter. So, let the people guess.

  1. According to you what is the real meaning of literature?

I think, “Literature” is very ambiguous concept that one can define it either in one line or nevertheless in a book.  If I give you one liner answer, literature is somewhat penning down morality.

  1. Names of authors you follow. And why?

Though I am not bookworm but I usually prefer to read Indian authors like Chetan Bhagat, Sudeep Nagarkar, Durjoy Dutta and Ravinder Singh. Needless to mention here that they mostly write about love, romance and relationship which work in real life sometimes. So, one can get the better understanding of love and can have various phases of love through their novels.

  1. Anything about your upcoming work?

Ah, yes! I am currently working on the plot of my second novel jointly with my closest one. Probably, readers will able to get it into hands by the end of this year.

  1. What else after writing?

Besides writing, I love to give priority to my close people and doing crazy things for them. Rather than that, I love to paint as well my mood allows to do so or else interacting with the masses.

Author Interview- Devanshi Sharma, Author of No Matter What I Do: I End Up Falling for You

Hello readers,
Today we have an extremely talented young authoress Devanshi Sharma, author of No Matter What I Do: I end up Falling for You with us. So, without wasting more of our time lets start the interview.

1. Tell us about yourself.

Defining yourself is one of the trickiest tasks to do. But, if you ask me, there are three words that more or less speak about Devanshi—workaholic, dreamer and stubborn. I dream, and I try to work as hard as I can to achieve it with a stubborn positive attitude. That’s what’s needed to achieve your aims, isn’t it?

2. What brought you in this writing world?

Imagination and love for stories. Even as a kid, I loved making up stories and narrating them, I am doing the same, the only difference is that now, they are more realistic!

3. What after writing?

My family is the first priority in my life, after which comes writing and then the list concludes. So, that’s writing in my life.

4. What made you write No Matter What I Do: I end up Falling for You?

No Matter What I Do is a story that narrates four stories knitted in one string. When I was writing it, I simply wanted to make people love tea with salt! In simpler words, I wanted my readers to know about Amaira and her story. The story also talks of Kabir, Suhani and Kushank, who like most of us are struggling to find the right path. It is a story amidst us, I thought why not share it with my readers?

5. Tell us a name of a fictional character that resembles you and why?

I think that each person and each character is shaped individualistically and therefore, comparing two individuals is not something I usually prefer. So, I would say I resemble to Devanshi!

6. According to you what is the real meaning of literature?

Literature means world. Having been a student of English Literature myself, I feel that literature is one subject that covers all layers of human behavior and society. So, when you want to know everything about human beings, you refer to literature.

7. Names of authors you follow. And why?

I love reading Indian authors, naming a few they are, Ruskin Bond for the reason that how he defines mountains, no one else can. Another writer I love is Manju Kapoor for her realistic and gray characters.

8. Anything about your upcoming work?

Well, it is a novel about characters like us, who make mistakes, who fall down, and who still want to get up and move ahead. No one’s perfect so why not celebrate imperfection? And, why go with wrong when right is an option?

9. How can our readers connect with you?

I’d be more than glad to connect with my readers on Facebook. They can visit my website, devanshisharma.in to know more about all my books and latest updates.

10. Any words to newbies?

No one’s a newbie and all of us are newbies. What I’d say to my friends who aspire to write is that No Matter What happens, write ad infinitum. I know writing is a journey in itself, with waves of ups and downs but just stick to your story and make it happen, trust me after all the waves, you will never regret the amount of work, effort and emotions that you’ve put in your work! On that note, Keep writing!

Mid-week Interview Session- B. S. Sarwagana Kumar

1. Tell us something about yourself.

I am an enthusiast when it comes to writing and film making. All creative fields interest me. Creative people intrigue me. Currently, I am pursuing my digital film making course at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. Apart from all these, I often fall into the vastness of spirituality.

2. What is writing for you?

It’s a beautiful art, I must say. Keenly, each thing has to be taken care of. I think all kinds of stories have been said already – it is just the way we present it that makes it distinct.

3. Did you always want to be a writer?

In a way, yes – there was this creative voice inside me that constantly poked me to do something beyond. But for that to burst out and take shape as a writer, it took so many hurdles and inspirations.

4. Who is your biggest influence?

My mother, father, and Gurus.

5. Tell us about Kaliyug.

Can I say, “It’s a big book and cannot be summarized?”. For starters, I found some interconnections between Parashurama, Agastya, Rama, Krishna, etc., etc., to have some sort of effect on the beginning of Kaliyug. I thought, “Well, that’s some new perspective!” And then, I began to join few more threads – a new surprising plots came out. Then I look at the big picture as described in our mythology, and my, my! To my surprise I found that all puranas, all Itihasas, Vedantas – all together were pointing at Kaliyug. Then I did a little research on what would happen once Kaliyug reaches its peaks. Based on these research plot, “Kaliyug – The Secret Plot” took birth. I don’t think anyone would’ve had this perspective towards our mythologies. It’s kind of hidden as bits in our Puranas – I joined the threads and stitched a costume – of course with a proper dye of fictionalizing a little. All of this was possible, I believe, by the blessings of Veda Vyasa and Shri Valmiki themselves!

6. What made you write Kaliyug?

Dharma is mocked at constantly by every ignorant. They know not, what is said why. There are people who portray wrong as right, and right as wrong. In the midst of all this chaos, my research began on what all this is about. May it be rants about Manusmriti, or rants about dowry, Sati, discrimination etc, people are rather interested in mocking a culture rather than knowing what it is about. So yes – I wrote it as an answer to everything that is a question against Dharma. Apart from this, the “Karma” equation I found in the midst of Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Kaliyug, took my breath away – which is what many readers are appreciating me for, so far.

7. What are your other interests besides writing?

Film making. And I’m not ashamed to say – eating, a lot. I do all these three with great passion.

8. Tell us about your upcoming work.

As Kaliyug is a trilogy, the sequels are my first priority. “Kali – his secret love” and “Kali – Here and beyond” are the follow ups. If Kaliyug the secretplot is mesmerizing to you (as per the views of few readers), the sequels will be far more fetching…!

9.How can our readers connect with you?

I’m always available on Facebook and Twitter. Anyone is free to ping me at facebook.com/authorsarwa or follow me on twitter @author_sarwa. For sample chapters of Kaliyug: please do inbox me.

I am a Commerce graduate from Mount Carmel College, Bengaluru and set to pursue my MBA in International Business and Finance. I believe in living the moment and aspire to do big in life. Commitment and perseverance is what I follow.

A simple girl with complicated dreams; ‘Give your best shot at what you do’ is my basic mantra.

IMG_20160604_100304

2. What is writing for you?

Writing. Well, it’s a feel good factor. When you love doing something, it’s all pleasure and no pain. That’s writing for me.

 3. Did you always want to be a writer?

No. I was clearly not sure about what I wanted to do. But writing is a passion and would remain the same.

4. According to you what is the real meaning of literature?

Literature is a medium that helps showcase your thoughts and perceptions. It is a language that expresses varied views emanating from different minds. A sole language that globally connects all.

5. Tell us about your book “No time to Pause”.

‘No time to Pause’ is a narration of a typical college student who decides to move to Bangalore (now Bengaluru), India away from her family who lived back in Dubai. She wants to pursue her dream course and decides things would be perfect staying alone and having complete privacy.

She shifts into a Paying Guest (PG) accommodation where she encounters a girl with peculiar thoughts and actions tinged by her past. She had strong opinions on ways of living and a very different approach to life issues. On trying to dig what exactly made her what she was, the story of her past relationship, which did not turn up as good as expected and the experience she confronted during those days are revealed.

Learning from the new acquaintance on how to cope with issues, the girl realises that she has matured from the days of running 100 metres at the sight of a cockroach to facing the brutal situations that life puts one under certain circumstances.

With the college term ending, she leaves the institution not only as an academic achiever, but also a strong woman ready to face the rough world out there. She realises that life keeps moving on and there is no time to look back or regret.

6. What prefers you more… money or fame?

Well, who would say no to both? An ice cream by itself is tasty but the toppings add flavor. Money and fame complement each other.

7. What are your other interests besides writing?

I love dance. I have been a part of various cultural programmes since childhood. It never tires me.

8. Self-publishing or traditional publishing, which one has better scope?

It depends on the kind of book and the affordability of the author. My debut novel has been self-published through Half Baked Beans. They truly stick to their title and are a great support for budding novelists. For a debutant, the kind of experience that comes along is remarkable.

9. Tell us about your upcoming work.

I would soon start working on my next novel once I finalize the genre.

“No matter how much hard you try to cling to the people, the fact is everyone is going to leave you today or tomorrow. So, don’t depend on anyone else for breathing. It’s your life and your problems, only you know where you have to fix the missing pieces of your own puzzle. Don’t rely on anyone else to do that.”
-Himanshika Sharma

1. Tell us something about yourself.

I hail from Ambala City. I have lately completed my graduation in economics. Currently, I am working as a freelance content writer and a reviewer.

2. What is writing for you?

Writing for me is a way of showing emotions that couldn’t find voice. If I feel dejected, if I feel happy, if I feel inspiring, if I feel turmoil within me – no matter what the emotion I feel – I express it through words.

3. Did you always want to be a writer?

No! Not even in my dreams had I thought of becoming a writer. It just happened all of a sudden.

4. Who is your biggest influence?

The people around me who write so exceptionally well. They influence me to run the horses of my mind and create something up to the mark.

5. What kind of publishing you would prefer for other self-publishing, traditional or vanity publishing?

I would prefer traditional publishing anytime over any form of publishing.

6. Anything about “Love beyond Words”?

The story revolves around a handicap girl, Kriti and a suave boy, Kunal. It shows their eternal love for each other and how they face vicissitudes of their lives. It has a tinge of inspiration and a whole lot of romance.

wpid-love-beyond-words1-500x500

7. What is Literature for you? Meaning and importance.

Literature is a form of art that stands tall and up as compared to other forms. Literature holds up so people’s imagination in its heart. No matter what you are going through, diving in someone else’s imagination is always soothing. Even if a person who is unable to walk can fly high by exploring the imaginations that literature provides.

8. What are your other interests besides writing?

Singing! Although, I am not a very good singer but I like humming to the tunes and singing a song or two for myself in solitude.

9. Are you planning to come up with more books?

Yes, of course! I am currently working on my second book and I am planning to launch it soon.

10. How can our readers connect with you?

You all can connect with me through Facebook.
