INTERVIEW WITH KUSHBU GADIYA
CONTRIBUTING POET OF JEREMIAD OF HEARTS
A short and sweet introduction of yourself. *
Hi, This is Kushbu Gadiya from Bangalore.At the age of 22,decided to serve the youngsters by working in A NGO school.Worked as a facilitator and saw a huge difference in my life.Having a background of Science and HR in the qualified college,I chose to spend time in improving our youth from a very low background.Aim to run a NGO through a lot of educational system change.
When did you first start writing? *
Writing has been in my blood from since 14+ used to submit my charts for my school notice board but never got a chance to explore my words in form of writings for a bigger platform .Used to give stage shows as my hobby is singing.But i knew i would change the society, people around me through my talks and write ups.So at the age of 24, I decided to write and write and continuously write till i publish my 5 books lately.:)
Do you remember what you wrote first? *
These lines were my power when I dint know about poetry doing so well today ’18. ” My inner-pain was so silent, that it decided to stay noiseless. I never knew it would make so much of racket out of it, Or I would have never kept it unspoken.”
How did you get interested in writing? *
This was when I was in my 8th std, My english teacher St.Sharlett, saw my first chart of poetry.It was on ” Lord Jesus” believed in him, it was since then I started to pen down all that was directed from heart of mine.Later i lost the essence of it as studies were more of priority then,but i never stopped writing.My interest became so strong when I experienced a lot from life which came out in form of poetry.Now,25yrs I have written more than 50+ poems in different applications and on process to write a book.
Who or what has been inspiration? *
My inspiration are countable, I have a small circle of people who day-night inspires me a lot.” Karma” has been my strongest inspiration, it always inspired me to move forward not been bothered much about the world because “karma” said to the world ” As you sow, so shall you reap” this has made me do my work peacfully 🙂
Who are your favorite authors/poets? Why? *
“The Stone Diaries” by Carol Shields who talks only if you care about ordinary life. Pulitzer prize-winner, modest Canadian Shields said: “A human life, and this is the only plot I think that I am interested in, is this primordial plot of birth, love, work, decline and death and “Being Purple”,an anthology by my college lecturer Saranya Francis talks about A touch of colour to a greying world. A smile under a blazing sun. A flower abloom on a misty morn To whom being itself is fun – Her words.
How do you feel when you write? *
To be honest I feel as though I have been writing since my previous birth.It feels as though my heart gets lighter on every poem,quotes whatsoever i write.Its a great feeling.And I strongly suggest people to start writing atleast about yourself.Try it:)
What are your other hobbies? *
Singing, Public talks,Hanging out with my girl gang and talking about everything about world.
How did you feel when you got your selection mail? *
Ohhhh!!! I was on cloud 9,10 etc 😀 It was that special moment in my life when your hard work pays.I thank WeWrite strongly for patiently giving my poems a life.What more could i want:):)
What do you think about poetry? *
Poetry to me is my second soul.It writes what i feel, it reads my heart deep in.It brings positivity out from me if i am low or lost.So much of Motivation i get when i write and when people appreciate my work.Poetry is Kushbu Gadiya:)
Do you think rhymes are important for poems? Why so? *
May be or may not be.It has its own yes/no depending on person to person.:) For me majority words and a style matters.
A few words for your readers? *
To all my positive soul out who are reading this.One thing is sure that you will and you must start writing.Being professional is not important,being yourself while writing is important.Just pen down about your feelings.You will find the real poet in your poetry.
