we will be interviewing Heena Vadher who is an inspiring
author. Heena has recently written a great book so let's see what this
author has to say about her writing and life.
Can you tell us something about
Sure. This book is collection of
my quotes, poetries, and short-stories. And most of them are based on the
current scenario and place of women in our society. There is a reason for
choosing this specific topic as I have seen that no matter how many times they
say that there is no difference between a boy and a girl, they do treat their
daughterlike 'LIABILITY' son like 'ASSET' as the message showed in the movie 'Badrinathkidulhania'.
Yes, we do say but we dont do what we say. Thats why I wanted to express the
feeling that I have kept in my heart throughout these years, so that it may
reach to the people who are still unaware of the fact that nowadays girls are achieving
grandeur in every male-dominated field. So my book is having short and sweet
message urging everyone to respect their mother, sister, girlfriend, wife,
daughter and every single woman. As respect is a reciprocal process. If you
want to be respected then let others feel respected by your deeds.
What difficulties you faced while writing
Difficulty? Not at all. As writing is my hobby. It's more than hobby for me. Though
I had never thought about being a writer but I started writing 2 years ago
because of my weakness. As I wasn't able to express my feelings to anyone, yes,
it's little bit strange but it's true. Though I had faced some difficulties
while I was trying to be better in my writing skill. There were many people who
always encouraged me helped me in everything, they were happy that I was trying
at least. But there were also many people who hadgrudge against me and who had discouraged
me by criticizing every little thing. Many of them were saying that I am just
wasting my time and I will not be able to be what I want to, my thinking will
never be able to influence people out there. ButI took their every comment
positivelyas I thought its happening because they feel unsecured because of my
development so I just moved ahead. And here I am.
When did you first realize you wanted to be a
As I said I didnt even think
about being a writer. But some my teachers had advised me to keep a diary and
note down everything happened in the day. And I found it worth-doing. It not
only helped me remember what had happened on which day but it also improved my
writing skill a lot and then I was able to write a perfect quote to describe my
whole day. I started writing quotes according to my daily experiences. Some
people started saying that I am coming across condescending with them. It hurts
a lot when you start something enthusiastically and someone try to make you
feel inferior as they don't like it that you showed them the mirror. But thats
how life is. Not everyone will be there in your struggle but who meant to be
there, will always be there. That's all.
Any book you wished you had written? Why?
Yes, there is a book in Gujarati titled as 'Angad no pag' -by haresh dholakiya ' (àª
àªàªàª¦àª¨à«à««àª) which I wished I had written. Because this book
played a vital role in my life. When I started writing I was encouraged as well
as discouraged by people but this book totally changed my thinking and provided
me good hope to grow. After reading it, I was filled with tremendous positive
energy. And got the central idea of the book. That is no one can beat you in
the field in which you are best. And you don't even need to be in competition
with them as you are the BEST already in it. So you don't need to feel inferior
because of them. Just like said by Eleanor Roosevelt "No one can make you
inferior without your consent".
What do you like to do when you're not
Music. Usually I prefer to write
something when I am fully energized especially in the earlier hours of morning.
So that I could write perfectly but when I am not writing, I will take my
earphones and listen to music. Honestly,
it gives me peace and pleasure simultaneously. I love to listen Bollywood songs
but I also like to listen some prayers like 'Ik onkaar', 'Vaishanv jan to',
What does your family think of your writing?
My family has always supported
me to do whatever I feel right to do. And so they havent ever raised any
objection over anything that I love to do.
What should your readers expect
from you next?
I really dont know. What they
will expect from me for my next book. But I am sure I will able to say that
soonest. As I hope that readers will like my book and appreciate my first
effort of writing a book. And if they will send me replies regarding this book
I will able to know their perspective soon and will definitely try my level
best toexpress my thoughts according to their expectations.
Any advice for budding writers?
The same advice that I have
given you in my book. To respect everyones emotions. And especially that of
women! Not because I am one of them, but because of the fact that she needs
your support and appreciation to shine out bright! And trust me, they will give
you more in return than you gave her. Whether it is respect or disrespect!
