https://www.amazon.in/gp/offer-listing/1547160683/ref=tmm_pap_new_olp_sr?ie=UTF8&condition=new&qid=&sr=

Read it, Buy it and share with people who love Words.

These are Poems that could heal you and shine,
like a glowing lantern along the sky line
Listen to the numbness with which they speak
you will definitely resonate after a while

Pragati Chaudhary for you!

Sharmishtha Basu: What are you apart from being a poet Pragati?
Pragati Chaudhary:
I am an MBA in Finance, Currently working in the Finance Department of an Association.

Sharmishtha Basu: Is it your first published book? How does it feels?
Pragati Chaudhary:
Yes, it is my first self published book and it feels really great and exhilarating to be a part of this journey.

Sharmishtha Basu: Any big hurdle in the path of publishing?

Pragati Chaudhary: No big hurdle in Self publishing, everything is just a step by step process and I think it goes better with every step as you get close towards the book going Live. Editing I can say is bit of a procedure. Its time consuming and even one slight mistake could lead the book margin skip the borders.

Sharmishtha Basu: Why poetry? spill out your heart!  most people try stories! You know poets get less buyers for their books, right?

Pragati Chaudhary: Yes, I understand that Poets are not easily recognizable but, I choose Poetry because it comes naturally to me. I don’t have to struggle to write a Poem. I just grab one line and rest of the words comes to me tumbling down in the shape of a Poem. So, I enjoy Poetry. It matters a lot when People who aren’t even reader’s read your Poems and applaud.

Yes, I think it is difficult to grab the audience but Struggles are everywhere so I just want to keep going and I personally believe that Hope never hurts itself.

Sharmishtha Basu: Share the story of your journey of publishing a bit, from the scratch if  you have a little time to share, how the idea came, how you materialized, did you get anyone else’s help or hired an editor, illustrator.. how did your team worked if  you did?

Pragati Chaudhary: To began with, I wrote my first poem for My Father; after his death and that poem came out naturally, what I felt, what I believed, how he was as a person, the aura that he had. He was an avid reader. Since that day, I started writing. I really don’t know how, that shape started forming thereafter. I believe that your thoughts and beliefs, affirmations, nostalgia, the Love you get, the one you lose, a personalized Opinion about any specific thing forms into words; be it a Poem or an anecdote or a story it’s just instinctive.

No I don’t have any person behind me to guide. No editor, No illustrator No team. I work independently and whatever I am doing; It’s just the support of my family and close mates.

Sharmishtha Basu: It is too early to ask but is there another book in horizon? Poetry, story or non-fiction?

Pragati Chaudhary: Yes, another book would definitely be there
A Poetry book but, it would take time as I am not a full time Poet/Author. It’s just that I love writing and Penning down what I firmly believe.

Sharmishtha Basu: Any suggestions for other authors or wannabe authors?

Pragati Chaudhary: Be what you actually are and what you feel specifically when you write. Reality in writing comes through personal justifications provided you are giving that to yourself first.
Best wishes for those who want to step up in this journey of writing.

Saturday Korcha 10.2.18 Jagjit Singh

Jagjit Singh
Born February 8, 1941, Sriganganagar, Bikaner
Dued 10th October 2011.

There are singers we grow up with, Jagjit Singh and his wife Late Chitra Singh were the singers I grew up with. My eldest sister was a big fan of this fantastic singer, so she used to hear them all the time, in good old tape-recorders, and I became fond of Jagjit Singh’s voice, it took me some time to admire Chitra Singh’s voice, I still rather love the Jagjit Singh’s voice. Quite interesting, I just came to know that Chitra Singh was a Bengali, born Chitra Dutta. Anyways, these two sang together from 1967, married each other in 1969 but their fame came in 1976. Because they were brave enough to walk in a path dominated by urdu speaking people, the world of ghazal, and people like me will humbly say that though Jagjit-Chitra’s songs were called ghazal but in fact they were modern songs, geet. If you knew Urdu and Hindi and have checked out ghazals and the songs by Singhs you would have agreed with me, that though their songs were gems but they really did not fitted to the category of ghazals. Well, I am not the only one who says that, critiques have been saying it from the very beginning and I agree with them.

The songs this couple have sung for us are on one hand excellently performed on the other hand they had very best lyrics, believe me! Their depth is amazing! Just love them! To love their songs you will have to understand it, so you can try reading their lyrics in English first, then if you want you can hear their songs. Only two of my hot favorite song by this couple are “Ye daulat bhee le lo” and “Ajnabi shahar ke ajnabi raaste”- there are singers and there are singers! This couple fits in the latter category.

There is not much to say about it, I think in this series I will just open their pages in internet, pick up the things that I have loved about them and share them with you. At the end mention the site which gave me the information.

In this case it is of course good old Wikipedia. You can check out desiblitz.com in case it has something extra to offer.
