Dear SHE, on behalf of all the readers, public, families, friends and your well-wishers, we would like to discuss something about you and of course, your journey as well. This conversation will help readers to know more about you and your journey. Please give answers to the attached answers in brief.
So let’s start now…….

The Spirit Mania: Most welcome to The Spirit Mania. We heartily congratulate you for being an INFLUENTIAL WOMEN OF THE YEAR 2K20. It’s really a great achievement. First thing, we would like to know about your basic info as a person, daily life, career so far and anything you would like to share about you with your readers and your well-wishers and also with us.
Hello everyone
I am grateful to you for this prestigious award. It means a lot. I am an educator by day and an author by night. You might wonder why this juggle between professions. Well, teaching is my vocation and writing is my avocation. I am a post-graduate in Biotechnology and have five years of experience in teaching. My writing career dates back to 2012 when I was still in my penultimate year of college.

The Spirit Mania: Please tell us something about your journey of becoming an author/blogger/teacher and other fields in which you are working? When you actually started your journey and how was the circumstance? Did any person or situation influence you to become what you are today?
My mother is my inspiration. She is a strong woman and she inspired me to take up teaching as a profession. As far as writing is concerned, Nicholas Sparks is the one who ignited this passion for writing. Like I said before, I began writing during my time in college. It was only after my degree that I started writing for various online magazines. Year by year I progressed and finally made it as a writer for Woman’s Era, Different Truths, EfictionIndia, Women’s Web and Speaking Tree (Times of India). I have also conceptualized and edited two anthologies ‘Poison ivy’ and ‘Unbounded Trajectories’.

The Spirit Mania: Please tell the readers something about your interest in the respective field. What is your message to those readers who are trying to do the best in your field?
Honestly speaking, this field of writing has become crowded now. With no respect for language nor content, the newcomers are just keen on getting their name printed on the cover page. This disappoints me. Nevertheless, I believe that if you have the will and the audacity to take a stand for yourself, every effort that you put will be worth the time invested. One more piece of advice that I have for the aspiring writers is to respect and learn the language, for this will make them feel proud.

The Spirit Mania: And yes, the most important thing we would like to hear from you is what is your message to those girls and women who are suffering from any problem in their journey to achieve something big? You have been their source of motivation, please convey your thoughts with them.
Women are known for their indomitable spirit and unapologetic ambitions. When they decide to take the reigns in their hands, no power in the world can stop them from realizing their dreams. Hence, my message to all the girls and women out there is to first listen and identify your calling. It is time for a change. It is okay not to like cooking. It is okay not to find joy in doing household chores. It is okay not to marry or have children. Once we learn to accept ourselves as we are, society will follow the cue. This is not an easy task. But someone needs to make the first move, isn’t it?

The Spirit Mania: Being one of the Influential Women; what type of changes do you want in your society as well as with respect to women?
I cannot change the perception of thousands of people who constitute the society. However, I can change my own perspective and respect the choices of all individuals. If we start doing that individually, the world will become a comfortable place to live in.
Great! We have come to the end of our interview session.
