Author’s Note

Thank you for visiting my page… Normally , a common question that people ask me is “When did You begin writing?” Well, writing has been so much a part and parcel of my life that it is 1016884_233803680120624_2035359152_nreally difficult to recollect. However, I am sure that it began during my school days. I must have been in Highschool then. I remember scribbling poems in my notes. An incident that comes vividly to my mind is when I submitted a poem of mine for school magazine, one of my teachers said, “You must have copied it. You can’t write this!” To which I barely managed to smile. Those were the days when I rarely spoke. All my thoughts used to take the form of words and they found place in my writings. I promptly took my poem back because she seemed to have no belief in me. However, soon recognition came my way and I was elected as a poetess in our Debating and Literary Society in the school. Soon, a few poems got published in the local newspaper ‘THE HITAVADA’ which was a prominent newspaper in Nagpur. Seeing the poems being published in the main paper, I would be ecstatic. However the time to concentrate on my studies had arrived; I wished to do Engineering . Thus, writing poems though continued, sending it for publication took a back seat for a while. My poetry would find its place in my diary, well hidden from the world. When my daughter was born, I used to fascinate her into a colourful world of my well imagined stories. Initially, the narration of stories was for her benefit; that her imagination power would grow. But later, she would insist that I tell her one new story every day. When she was about ten years old, one day my husband said, “You must have by now narrated to Simran at least three to four thousand stories. Why don’t you scribble them and send them to various magazines?” Thus began my journey into the world of writing.Surprisingly for me, my stories would be accepted in most of the magazines and journals. The year was 2008. Since then, I have been writing stories, poems, novels etc and my readers have been appreciating my efforts which is an inspiration enough for me to continue. It is indeed heartwarming to receive feedbacks and I look forward to them, as I treat them as a means for further improvement in my writing. I would be obliged if You could send me one. Thank you. – Neelam
