LiFT: Tell us about your book, the journey of writing it and its content?

Rachita Bafna: I started writing in a diary, documenting my travels, which I later shared on travel blog sites. These travel blogs gradually evolved into short stories, eventually leading to my first story being published in an anthology with an author from the UK. The anthology, titled The Mermaid Tales, performed exceptionally well in the UK, marking a significant milestone in my writing journey.

From that point on, there was no looking back. I continued writing blogs, which paved the way for this book. This book encapsulates a part of my life where, amid all the sadness and difficulties, I made a conscious effort to focus on the brighter side. My kids have played a crucial role in keeping me sane throughout this journey.

I hope my book serves as a lighthouse for those sailing through their own storms of sadness, guiding them towards hope and resilience.

LiFT: Why you chose this title?

Rachita Bafna: I chose this title because it perfectly encapsulates the essence of my message—life is a dance of love and laughter. Through all the ups and downs, it’s the moments of joy and connection that make the journey worthwhile.

LiFT: When did you realize that you want to be a writer and what’s your inspiration behind it?

Rachita Bafna: I chose to be a writer because it allows me to express my thoughts, experiences, and emotions in a way that resonates with others. Writing is a powerful tool for storytelling, and I find joy in crafting narratives that can inspire, entertain, and connect people. It’s a way for me to explore the complexities of life, share my perspective, and leave a lasting impact. Plus, the creative freedom that comes with writing is immensely fulfilling.

LiFT: Where do you see yourself ten years down the line in the world of literature?

Rachita Bafna: Probably with a couple of books published and receiving another award.

LiFT: How much do you think marketing or quality of a book is necessary to promote a particular book and increase its readers?

Rachita Bafna: Both marketing and quality are crucial for promoting a book and increasing readership. Quality ensures readers have a compelling experience, leading to positive reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations. Marketing, however, is essential for visibility. Even the best book needs effective promotion, like social media campaigns, book tours, and advertisements, to reach its audience. Quality builds the foundation for success, while marketing provides the push to get the book into readers’ hands. Both are vital for a book’s success.

LiFT: What is the message you want to spread among folks with your writings?

Rachita Bafna: No matter how hard life is or how tough things get, there is always hope. It’s that hope that will pull you through it all.

LiFT: What do you do apart from writing?

Rachita Bafna: Apart from writing, I eat, I spend time with my children, and I just enjoy life.

LiFT: What are the activities you resort to when you face a writer’s block?

Rachita Bafna: I usually stop writing, forget all about it. I either go for a drive, walk, hear music or go out for a coffee

LiFT: What if your story will be adopted as a movie? Whom would you want to work as a director or actors in it?

Rachita Bafna: Maybe some directors or actors who make small movies but the ones that really leave an impression.

LiFT: Are you working on your next book? If yes, please tell us something about it.

Rachita Bafna: Yes, I am. It is a sequel to this one.

LiFT: What are your suggestions to the budding writers/poets so that they could improve their writing skills?

Rachita Bafna: Write what you want to say, not what people want to hear. Use simple language that anyone can easily understand and finally after writing, read what you’ve written…if it doesn’t bore you then its perfect. Write from your heart not your brain.
