An Author’s Word: Kavita Gupta
1.If not an author which other creative field would one find you in and why?
May be a Gardner. Everybody in my family and friends find me relaxed and happy with soil and plants. It gives me satisfaction and peace.
2.What does the written word mean to you?
Means a lot, but some times I feel that a writer doesn’t write. It’s some power which makes THEM WRITE. SOMETIMES when one writes it is so amazing that even the writer is surprised by the outcome . So it is not always the writer or his thoughts or his behaviour, I feel it is some natural power that makes them write.
3.Your personal favourite five authors in any genre.
- Amrita Preetam
- Harishankar Parsai
- Maxim Gorki
- Khalil Gibran
4. What is your favourite word, in any language, and how would you describe its meaning?
‘OM’ however for me it is not a word, ‘Om’ is power, positivity, energy, light, every thing!
5. E-Book or physical book? What do you prefer and why?
I personally prefer physical books. FIRSTLY I feel some relationship with the smell of paper and ink. Other than this I find myself comfortable while reading physical books as e-books stress my eyes. Maybe l am from that generation which has grown up with physical books only.
