1. When did you find yourself lost in the world of words? 

My love story with writing began with a hate story. As a child, whenever we would vacation as a family, my mother would hand me the dictionary as well as the thesaurus and ask me to write about the trip. I remember trying everything to avoid those mandatory writing sessions. What started out as dread, soon blossomed into inseparable love! Writing will always be my first love. My first short story won second prize and was published in Maharashtra Herald as part of a competition for children when I was in class VII.

I will also always be inspired by my late paternal grandmother (Dr. Shanti Malik) who was a prolific award- winning Hindi author. I hope to follow in her footsteps someday, albeit in English.

2. Do you believe that self-experience is important to keep your pen flowing? What motivates you to write and just keep writing?

If self-experience was the only means of expression in a writer’s palette, then the emerging picture would rarely burst forth kaleidoscopic colors. I surely wouldn’t have written articles on parenting if it was only about firsthand experience! In my opinion, empathy and observation are essential, as there are stories all around us waiting to be told.

Writing gives me immense peace. So for me it is a case of chasing my bliss while playing with words. It is also recognition from platforms like Syahee, feedback from my family, supporters and my readers’ comments that motivate me to keep on writing.

3. For a writer, how important it is to be a good reader?

Reading is the life force flowing through writers’ veins. A writer’s life sans reading is akin to a pen whose ink has run dry. Just as the flow of ink is key for a pen to write smoothly, so is reading for a writer to keep honing his/her craft. As a writer, my mantra is always read, read and then read some more!

4. What are your views on feminism?

I’m longing to be witness to an era when there is no need for this word. I think one should aim to excel at whatever you undertake and let your work do the talking. Your gender doesn’t really matter but your work ethic and passion to achieve your dreams do. Just don’t give up and your efforts will be recognized sooner or later.

5. A message for budding literature enthusiasts... 

Dear literature enthusiasts, do you know why you are the most awesome people? The future of words belongs in your hands. You have immense power to shape the future of reading with your choices. When you read and spread the love of the written word, you are ensuring this legacy is passed onto the coming generations and not lost amidst the challenges of everyday life. Whenever you have a minute to spare, be it on the ride home, stuck in traffic or just before bedtime, just read and grow with your only true friends for life- books.

If you’re a writer looking to get your work noticed, then learn to embrace rejections. They are the countless stones you will have to step upon in your journey as a writer, before your work is appreciated. So just keep on going, for nothing can keep the passionate away from their passions.

दरवाजे पतन के

दरवाजे पतन के



आज यह कैसीमज़बूरी है 

हमारे में बिलकुल ही सबुरी नहीं है 

इतनीजल्दी भी क्या? 

साप सूंघ गया है क्या? 



मानो एक संजीवनी हाथ लगी है 

राजकारण एक नया धंधा बन गया…

खुद्दारी से

 

मेरी बसी है जान

फिर भी में रहा अनजान

तिरंगा मेरी रहा है शान

लुटा भी दूँ जान।

 

फिर भी शांति का चाहक

मेरे देश का  में बनु संवाहक

यदि में कुछ काम आ सकूँ

अपने आप को अदना सेवक कह सकूँ।

 

 बलिदान देना चाहता…

हम और हमारी सेना ham

हम और हमारी सेना

हम और हमारी सेना

शौर्य और शूरवीरता की जी गाथा

लेंगे वापस कश्मीर का आधा हीस्सा

जेहादियों का ख़त्म होने जा रहा जुस्सा।

देश का हर जवान गुस्से में है

क्यों हम वतन के दुश्मनों के साथ नरमी दिखा रहे है ?

क्यों ये लोगो को अमन की जिंदगी बसर करने देनी चाहिए।

Here I stand

Let me in your arms cried my soul,

Hear me, this heart bleeds, hold me as I fall again and again..

A silence kills, no more can I take .. I didn't walk there but you said to...



How do I live without you...love me true ...

My world is darkened and my fears are huge...if I didn't walk then that was for a fear of losing you...or break within ...



I need you now hear me say ..let me walk by you...

Watch me cry... would you be happy...

I await for your… Continue

I cry for you.

You were among all that lied.

Didn't I say before I wouldn't walk by the river but you said trust again and I did...

The one that taught me to trust no more walks by me...

Now where else do I go...which direction do I take...



Go not away from me but I will if you wouldn't want me by you..

I ll fly away to distant lands may be a silence you did hear from me but not again a word I say...



You left me alone as all did..

I hate you you liked you ll stay… Continue

એના પણ લેખ

એના પણ લેખ

 

જિંદગી ની તમામ યાદી

લાવે ચોક્કસ બરબાદી

પણ યાદગાર યાદ

બને રહે એક સંવાદ।

 

જીવન ની ખુબસુરત પળ

ધસી આવે આંખોમાં જળ

જો હોય મન નિર્મળ

તો નયનો રહે હંમેશા સજળ।

 

જેની યાદ આવતાજ  વ્યગ્ર થાય મન

કાંપે થરથર…

Do you love me?

Posted by Hema Patel on November 6, 2017 at 6:05pm 0 Comments

A lover asked his beloved,

Do you love yourself more

than you love me?







The beloved replied,

I have died to myself

and I live for you.







I’ve disappeared from myself

and my attributes.

I am present only for you.







I have forgotten all my learning,

but from knowing you

I have become a scholar.







I have lost all my strength,

but from your power

I am… Continue

Afar.

A distant land am I,come not near thee,

If love had boundaries I would cease these feelings of my heart...

I do as an ocean but fear those broken pieces,

No more strengths do I have to mend a broken heart..

Love you immensely from afar,

Pains are unbearable no more can I bear...



Will love you as always, miss me not,

If I m gone,

Remember I did truly but my fears warn me of wounds,

And scars I wish not see again...



May heavens bestow… Continue
