Tell us about your writing process.
Well, that is a pretty tough question to answer. To be honest, I do not follow any process, I write whenever I get emotional. Whenever some feelings, thoughts come to my mind, i just note down on a piece of paper. The main uniqueness about my writing can better be described by my readers. I just express my emotions and thoughts, in the form of poem. Ofcourse, I write more on real things, irony about human life.

I write about the harsh reality of world as poems. There are no specific characters in my writings. However, if I write novel then, ofcourse, it becomes mandatory to get connected emotionally to fictious characters.
