मुस्तक़बिल स्याह वजूद ख़ाकसार

I’m a post graduate in mechanical engineering, a DRDO scientist, posted as instructor to teach army officers and cadets in an army educational institute. My family comprises husband and two teenage children. Being an avid reader, thinker, having seen various phases of life I’m bestowed with the insight and thought process for writing. Being a Reiki master and practitioner I connect well with the human nature, perceive their traits, understand their sufferings, aware of the role of karma and the process of transformation, and hence able to pen down this effectively as poetry.
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 influenced you to become what you are today?
My profession is totally technical teaching, it has nothing to do with literature. I enjoyed teaching since the beginning of my career and now I’ve spent 25 years in this profession.
I used to write randomly just to express myself what I couldn’t share with others. I will give credits to my reiki guru Brig Hardeep Singh Dhanny for what I am now. He used to conduct meditation sessions and in which there was a one minute activity “Writing Letter to God”. That activity I continued further and it became a daily bedtime routine. I used to break into tears that time. Slowly I realised my letters are becoming rythmic and poetic. And hence with my Guruji Naushir’s blessings I was evolved as a poetess.
I started posting english poems on hellopoetry.com, made a facebook page and now my poems are published in 4 renowned anthologies, one e-magazines and as two poetry collections. Also writing on many hindi poetry sites and groups.
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?
Answer: First important thing, read a lot. Then write not to sell. A good read may not be bestseller. Don’t judge yourself by number of followers. Write for your own contentment. This field too has many facets. Keep writing and keep enriching yourself.
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.
Answer: Be self-reliant, have patience, be persistent. And please, have no shortcuts.
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?
Answer: I want the harmony among various communities, classes and generations, accomodativeness for all, integrity towards nation and society. I want women and young girls to be progressive in thoughts but firm in the matter of values and principles and responsible for themselves. As aspiring women they have to be prepared to face many challenges in life, career etc. “Setbacks are breakthroughs.” Cracks are to let the light get in….
Great! We have come to the end of our interview session.
