Many incidents happens in our life or in society and if that touches my heart then the emotions take the shape of a poem.

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. According to me if we bind our thoughts under a process then it becomes so artificial. 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 of humans life.
