The Literature Times: Welcome to The Literature Times, author. Congratulations on the release of your book. What responses are you getting from your readers? Please share your experience with this book.
Author: Since my pattern of romantic fiction has an experimental pattern, I am mostly getting complimentary feedbacks and healthy constructive criticisms. In fact, I appreciate their honesty and their sincere motivation that encourages me to pursue my passion in writing.
The Literature Times: What encourages you to become an Author?
Author: Writing has always been my passion since childhood. Starting with a simple letter writing, essay writing and writing for magazines have always encouraged me to write more. Using my pen and paper as an instrument to communicate my feelings more elaborately in a customized tone is a way of freedom, especially when I write topics on social media, film industry and movie reviews. Writing for me has always been therapeutic. Sometimes when I need advice I just create a character who is in the same predicament as me and have another wiser character give him advice. It’s like I know what I have to do but I need to see it written down to truly realize it. Writing things down just makes my thoughts real.
The Literature Times: What are your favorite topics of writing? Please tell us something about your interest areas in the literature.
Author: I mostly enjoy writing about media industry; to be more specific about movies. I also enjoy expressing my views on lifestyle (topics varying from cooking, fashion, relationships and personality), social and community affairs, ethnic topics, women’s interests and literature.
Although my specialization in literature has been “Canadian Literature”, I enjoy sharing my perceptions on genres of fiction, poetry and mystery.
The Literature Times: We were hoping you could tell us about some of those writers who had inspired you and whom you follow!
Author: I fondly read anything from Archies Digest to Pride and Prejudice. Some of my recurring collection authors are Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie, Nora Roberts, Paulo Coelho, John Irving, C Rajagopalachari, Chetan Bhagat, Ruskin Bond, Sudha Murty and Shashi Tharoor.
The Literature Times: The titles seem different and catchy; how you decided it? Please let us know the story behind it.
Author: I was always fond on writing about the topic “love”. It’s the most fascinating and creative topic that I can talk or write about endlessly. Its amazing to know that more you know about the concept of love, it has its dimensions wider and broader than a chemical structure in organic chemistry. So I decided to start my first attempt on writing with my most intrigued topic with a backdrop of story combining modern day with conventional love.
The Literature Times: What are your achievements so far? Tell us something about your writing career.
Author: My writing passion started since school age. I have always considered reading and writing in English language more as a passion than as a subject in syllabus. I have participated in several literary events in college days. I started writing on freelance in FWD and some online magazines. I also started writing on cooking and recipes using my personal blog space. I also blog about movie reviews and current affairs that draws my attention.
The Literature Times: What is your current goal in writing a career? How do you see your future in writing?
Author: I look forward to trying different genres in writing. I do not intend to limit the writing to books alone, but I also look forward to writing some genuine and quality scripts that has an essence to think about.
The Literature Times: Are there any other books being worked by you? Please let us know about your future projects.
Author: Being my first venture, I look forward to write more books. I prefer to build a creative space in diverse angles of writing rather than repeating the same genre or theme. Since my reading habits have always encouraged me to read books at different scales, I have always been influenced to write for different age groups.
The Literature Times: How you see Indian writing in the 21st century? What changes do you see in the modern way of writing? Do you feel it has been changed by the time?
Author: Indian writing style and variants have developed and improved significantly in the past many years. It also occupies a significant place in world literature in the recent years. I believe covid times have changed the people’s attitude and have dedicated their time to reading, comprehending and nurturing the skills in reading and writing. Perceptions and attitudes have also changed from diverse backgrounds in Indian literature and have widened the range of narrative and aesthetic influences across mediums, from novels, films, music and comic books.
