Interview with sakritease

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
writing is the best form of communication for me. while writing I am better understood & than while speaking. Even I can better understand others when I read their writings. when I write I feel free & let out my hidden insights out & makes me light.
I am avid reader & I enjoy reading books. I am experimenting to know whether I am able to practice art which I am very much fascinated with
What do your fans mean to you?
Anyone who wants to come to a public forum are writing only because they expect a fan to read. without a fan, there is no need to write at all or even publish at all. It is always a joy to know others & understand their feelings. Writing a book for many to read & share is the greatest joy. when the fans rejoice the moments shared by the author , it is the moment of life for every author
What are you working on next?
I am working on my next book tentatively titled " White / Fair skin addiction" it is about the impact of colonial rule & the bias that has been followed by apartheid based on skin colour. The madness has become now a deep rooted malady in many parts of the world especially India, where anything told by a white man can be sold as authentic.
