Interview With- Preeti Choudhary Author of Shrieking Silences

1. What inspired you to start writing? 
Darkness around me and my revolting spirit.

2. What did you like to read when you were small?
I used to hide novels in my course-books. I was a marathon  reader of classics as a child

3. What is the greatest challenge in writing a book?
 Whatever a writers writes, people sometimes take it too personally to the writer’s own life. In reality, the pain, suffering and other emotions sometimes can just be a projection of observation of the world.

4. How much research do you do before writing the book?
I just read people. Unfortunately, I do not have to ‘search’ or ‘research’ for those dejected emotions. They are in abundance already.

5. What motivated you to write the book "Shrieking Silences" ? 
All these poems were haunting me, they were shrieking somewhere within and suddenly one day I realized they need satiation and they were out for publication.

6. Can you tell us more about your latest book ‘ Shrieking Silences’ ?  
 This book is an objective expression of, to and for the world. It’s universal and every person can relate to its poems. Humanity is the blood and body of the book.

7. How you take out time from your busy schedule to write this book?
I can’t write if I am told to write. These are just thoughts penned down while travelling, while waiting in staffroom, sipping a cup of coffee. They were as effortless as breathing.

8. Who are your favourite authors?
Frankly, I am such an easy to please personality that whom so ever I am currently reading becomes my favorite writer. But if you ask about all time favorites, eventually I end up with Girish Karnad (my all time favorite), Amrita Pritam, Shelley and the list goes on. 

9. What words of wisdom would you like to give to aspiring writers?
Whole world may conspire against your voice. Let it breathe, let it shape. Read people and let people read you.

Preeti Choudhary, a single child to her parents, has seen life through her own spectacles. Her independent thoughts tinted with the philosophy of life are resplendent in what she writes. In her current position as a young English professor at the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur, she has enlightened students with many awe-inspiring deconstructions. 
She has many national and international papers, articles and reviews to her credit. As an author of an academic book in literature she started her journey. Besides this, she has been working on women's issues beyond borders. Her doctoral thesis unfolds the lives of women in the Middle-East to the world. 
She is a wanderer and observer. Thus, Shrieking Silences is a brain child of her recollections and experiences in her soulful vagrancy. It welcomes its readers to her debut creative writing work. And this is just the beginning.
