Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.
For me, poetry is a musical expression of thought. Human life is Very unstable. We go through various phases in life and we undergo different kinds of feelings and emotions throughout our lives and these emotions inspire me to write down in a piece of paper. By sharing I feel relieved, in poetry, I find sympathy in grief joy in happiness and inspiration for a better life.
I have read various kinds of poets but I like classical poets most. I write in classical rhyming style and in free verse style as well. I don’t like to be bound by any particular style or sect so you will find lots of Variations in my poetry. Though most of my poetry is on the popular theme of love but I have also Written on current social issues like corruption and honor killing because as a Poet and citizen it’s my moral responsibility to raise my voice against social injustice. I have touched almost all the human emotion like joy, sorrow, envy and anger in my poems because these strong emotions fill our lives with different colors. Visit my blog to know more.
