Surbhi Thukral

1. When did you find yourself in the world of words? 

It was during my stint at a Gurgaon—based company as Manager of Marketing. I was producing content for brochures, website, press releases, articles, and more. More often than not, I would spend hours painting the content with diverse shades of creativity and imagination. I simply wanted the content to be perfect for the reader! It worked fantastically for me and the company. It was then I was put face-to-face with my passion for writing. Then, one day, a friend of mine asked me to try my hand at writing poetry and fiction. I thought about it for a few days before I made up my mind.  I was surprised by the support I received from my parents. A big thank you, Mom & Dad! That’s it, I guess. There has been no looking back since then.  And, to be honest, I am besotted with the fictional world.

2. What do you think about the newly emerged genre "Micro-fiction" ?

Micro-fiction is an interesting and engaging genre. It gives the reader the gratification of enjoying a complete story in the shortest time. Also, as a writer, I think it challenges and hones our creative skills to narrate our stories in less than 100 -150 words. Are you seeing the way content is being read and shared online? We are increasingly getting accustomed to reading everything on the screens of our mobile phones? No wonder, Micro Fiction is gaining popularity in this digital era.

3. What are your views about Indian publishing industry? 

I feel that Indian Publishing Industry is evolving in unexpected ways. The burgeoning digital landscape has embraced many new publishers offering engaging reading material to curious readers. The number of emerging publishers is expanding rapidly. That is good and bad, both. At times, the emerging writers find themselves at a crossroad of choosing the right publisher for their work.

4. Your views on Online readership...

In today’s digital world, an increasing online readership isn’t a surprise. I feel it helps writers to showcase their art to a wider audience. Also, online readership opens avenues for an improved engagement with the readers.  Also, readers are happy! They enjoy reading their favorite stories and poetry at the click of a button.

5. Tell us about your book/s

I have written poetry and short stories for many a national and international anthology, magazine, journal, and more. Harvests of New Millennium, New Asian Writing, Minds at Work, Silver Birch Press, and many more.

6. A message for the reader's community...

I really have to say this. Thank you for being such amazing readers. Thank you for helping us become better. I really hope we continue to entertain you with our creativity and imagination. Thank You, readers!

कुछ इस तरह!

कुछ इस तरह लिपटी हैं
तेरी पलकें मेरे दिल के तारों से
मज़ार के धागों से
कोई मन्नत लिपटी हो जैसे

શું? આ છે જિંદગી !

Posted by Sonu on October 15, 2020 at 7:36pm 0 Comments

મૃગ તરસે જળ દોડી દોડી હાથધર્યું ઝાંઝવાનીર, માનવ ભૂખ્યો પ્રેમનો મથામણ કરી પામ્યો વહેમ 

શું? આ છે જિંદગી !

રોણુ જન્મ ને મરણ સમયે સમાન મનોવ્યથા, આંતરીક ગુપશુપ ચાલી રહી ભીતર

શુ ? આ છે જિંદગી !

રાજકુમારો ને મહેલોના સપનામાં  રાચતા, આંખો ખુલી અરે ! આતો મૃગજળસમું સ્વપ્નલોક

શુ? આ છે જિંદગી !

મુખપર હસી ઠીઠોલી, મનમાં કરોડો તરંગ ઉછળે! વિચારે તો જાણે ઘેરો ઘાલ્યો

શુ? આ છે જિંદગી !

ભોરથતા આશબંધણીકાલે નહીતો આજે, હશે પિયુ સંગ સ્નેહમિલન પણ આતો…

तुझको लिखती रहूंगी मैं !

Posted by Jasmine Singh on October 15, 2020 at 1:22am 0 Comments

तुझे लिखती रहूंगी मैं

तेरे प्यार की स्याही में

अपनी कलम को डुबो कर

इस ज़िंदगी के पन्नों पे

तेरे साथ जिये लम्हों को

कविताओं में बुनकर

तुझको लिखती रहूंगी मैं

तुझको जीती रहूंगी मैं

तू वो है जो मेरे साथ है

और मेरे बाद भी रहेगा

कभी किसी के होठों में हंसेगा

किसी की आंखों से बहेगा

किसी अलमारी के पुराने

दराज की खुशबु में महकेगा

किसी की आंखों की गहराई

जब जब मेरे शब्दों में उतरेगी

तब तब मेरे बाद तुझे पढ़ने वालों के…

इल्ज़ाम ए इश्क़

Posted by Monica Sharma on October 14, 2020 at 9:12pm 0 Comments

धीरे-धीरे सब दूर होते गए

वक़्त के आगे मजबूर होते गए

रिश्तों में हमने ऐसी चोट खाई की

बस हम बेवफ़ा और सब बेकसूर होते गए

इल्ज़ामों की श्रृंखला बड़ी लंबी थी साहेब

वो लगाते गए हम मुस्कुराते गए

अपनी झुकी हुई भीगी पलकों के नीचे

जख्म ए इश्क़ हम छुपाते चले गए

बरसों किया इंतजार हमने

तेरी मीठी सी मुस्कान का

पर बेरहम तुम नजरों से

कत्ल करने को खंजर चलाते गए

जिक्र ए इश्क़ जो कभी सुनाई दे

जुबां पे तेरा नाम और

नज़रों में तेरा अक्स दिखाई…

आसमान से ऊंचा

अक्सर सिर की छत बन कर धूप और बारिश से बचा लेता है पिता...

यूं ही नहीं उसे आसमान से भी ऊंचा कहते ।

दो बातें

Posted by Sakshi garg on October 14, 2020 at 10:13am 0 Comments

कुछ बातें इन दो कारणों से भी तकलीफ दे देती हैं : 

1• काश ! ये सब सच होता ।;

2• काश ! ये सब झूठ होता ।

पिता

मुझे रखा छांव में, खुद जलते रहे धूप में...

हां मैंने देखा है फरिश्ता अपने पिता के रूप में ।।
