Tell us about your writing career:
Bharath: Writing had always been a dream for me but never an action plan. It was after the Himalayan Sojourn there was a sudden surge in the desire to write poems about the whole journey. After that, poetry was coming out effortlessly which eventually helped me composed my first book. I realized that poetry is a very beautiful opportunity to express verbose sentences in a few words and lines and also offers more flexibility from the grammatical standpoint.
Tell us something about your book.
Bharath: This book is titled Some Earth Poetry. These simple yet interesting collections of poems are meant to give a new outlook to poetry per se. This book touches upon Spiritual, Educational, Inspirational, Professional and Environmental aspects of life. It also contains interesting poetry on Kashmir, Climate Change, Kedarnath etc. I am confident that even people who don’t read poetry will also like this book.
What encourages you to become an Author?
Bharath: I slowly realized that writing poetry was a unique talent I possessed. So writing poetry had become a passion. In my opinion, if writing is one’s passion, becoming an author is a natural consequence.
What is your current goal in writing career?
Bharath: For the time being, I am my own fan and my own critic. I like to evaluate the content I write from the standpoint of a fan and from the standpoint of a critic.
The titles seems different and catchy, how you decided it?
Bharath: I realized no matter how much we explore this planet Earth, we will only know some aspects of it. Hence I decided on the title as “Some Earth Poetry”. This is the most generic title that I could come up for my book for the diverse aspects of life I covered upon in the book.
Are you writing other books as well? let us know about the
