‘Ek Kalam, Ek Kitab, aur Kuch Tajurbe’ – is one of the beautiful poem collections that will touch the right chords of your heart. So lately, I got a chance to have a conversation with the book’s poet – Atin Tiwari. Here is an excerpt from the conversation:
Q. I would like you to share something about yourself with our readers.
I am Atin Tiwari from Orai (Uttar Pradesh). I have bachelors in Electrical Engineering. I love to write in Hindi and Indian culture and I am writing in Hindi just because everyone understands Hindi language in India.
Q. How did you come up with the idea of writing this genre?
When I read poems and some of the famous novels, then I start writing about the experiences in life and love through my own words. That only gave me the idea of writing this genre.
Q. Where did you find the inspiration to write this book?
Ans. I remember a day when I was reading a book in a crossword, then suddenly a man came(Mr. Ashutosh Bhatia) and he told me ”that’s my book, how’s it?. Then I started talking with him, then he guided me and I started writing and then I showcased my writings to my father then he started supporting me, which eventually inspired me to write more.
Q. What exactly does your book convey?
I believe that “experiences are better than a book” and my book is all about experiences about life and love. It’s a poetry book so it conveys a message through poetry.
Q. What all was going in your head while penning down this book?
One of the simplest but most powerful habits I have established in my life in the past few years is to write things down.
Q. How much time you used to commit to this book?
For an experience, it takes a lot of years to know about people near me and for writing it takes a few months.
Q. Was there any moment you backed off from the idea of writing a book?
No, there was not a moment when I backed off from the Idea of writing a book.
Q. How do you handle the criticism that comes towards your way?
I try to see criticism as an opportunity to improve my work.

It was a great experience with bluerose and I would like to thank all the members of bluerose team, they guided me step by step from starting to till now for my book.
