Through eloquent verses, it paints a vivid tapestry of human emotions, touching upon love, loss, joy, and sorrow. The author’s mastery in portraying various feelings leaves readers reflecting on their own experiences. Each poem takes readers on a poignant journey, navigating through the complexities of the human heart. “Perceptions” is a literary gem that embraces the essence of the human experience with raw authenticity and profound insight.
LiFT: Why you chose this title?
Sucheta: There are a lot of unsaid emotions which go on in the Human Heart. The Reason for choosing perceptions as my book title are the unsaid emotions of women who face life’s most toughest challenges. There are certain traumatic situations in life when we cannot say what we feel despite having the urge to share. We feel claustrophobic and always have this suppression of keeping those feelings to ourselves. When someone says something negative to us we never retaliate but keep those to ourselves and move on. Perceptions talks about those feelings which should never be suppressed but definitely should be opposed.
LiFT: When did you realize that you want to be a writer and what’s your inspiration behind it?
Sucheta: When I first worked as a Co-author for Spotwrite and True Dreamster Publications, it was then I felt the urge to turn this dream of mine into a reality.
LiFT: Where do you see yourself ten years down the line in the world of literature?
Sucheta: If everything goes as planned I definitely would see myself in 10 years being nominated as the best author award on the basis of my significant contribution in the world of literature but apart from dreams I would definitely down the line in 10 years would see myself as someone, from whose publications my readers will be inspired. That will be the D-Day for me when they will be able to connect with what I write.
LiFT: How much do you think marketing or quality of a book is necessary to promote a particular book and increase its readers?
Sucheta: Marketing or the quality of a particular book is very much important as it helps the authors get connected to a wider audience. It helps them to establish themselves profusely in the world of literature.
LiFT: What is the message you want to spread among folks with your writings?
Sucheta: The only message I want to spread through my writings is that Life is damn short to follow rules. Do what feels right. Keep your intuition true. Never beg for attention. Just do the damn thing that you want. What feels to be true and right to yourself do that right away. Life is short so in this timespan if you have someone to express your feelings to, say sorry, or establish yourself do that instant. Don’t ever give yourself a second chance to think.
