LiFT: Tell us about your book, the journey of writing it and its content.
Tripti: “मिसरा (MISRA) ” is a urdu word means “a line of a verse Or urdu poetry”. As the name suggests this is just a beginning of my journey to touch your hearts through a beautiful collection of poems, ghazals, nazm and shayari. I always believe in spreading love among people, keeping this thing is mind I have kept the base of my poems love, care, affection.
In my beautiful journey from a professor to a poetess my family members, my loving daughter and few students encouraged me a lot and showed me new ways to showcase my talent.
In the end I can only say, read my book to understand emotions more affectionately
“कभी फुरसत से पुकारना मेरे नाम को तुम
एक सदी है मेरे दामन में लम्हों में कहाँ ढूँढ पाओगे”
LiFT: Why you chose this title?
Tripti: To decide the title of the book is really a big task for me. I want it something like that which reflects my journey and efforts I have put in it to show the different shades of emotions. I don’t want a poetic title for my book, I want a name which reflects my writings. Then comes ” “MISRA (मिसरा)”, the beginning, the power to complete and express more.
LiFT: When did you realize that you want to be a writer and what’s your inspiration behind it?
Tripti: I used to write earlier also in my graduation days but never featured it. Few years back I saw social media platforms for poetry, this thing started making me restless to feature my work. I started casually featuring up my writeups on social platforms. My family members and students started encouraging me to keep on writing and posting it. Few students gave me ideas for anthologies and open mic shows also. This is how I kept motivating to reach the hearts of various people and bring that book in front of you.
