 In conversation with Ms. Pankhuri, author of ‘Moments’, a collection of short stories which are fictional but inspired by our lives and the society around us. Short stories are a a little forgotten form which is coming back in trend in web series format across OTT platforms. The book leaves a deep impact on how amid busy city life we are forgetting the little moments of joy. This corona and lockdown have made us all realized that life is all about the moments we live, the memories and not the materialistic wealth.

Q. What was the trigger behind writing the book? How did the idea occur?

I came to Mumbai in 2015 and started my career. The first job that I got by college campus placement at RBL Bank as Sr. Manager – Digital Initiative. I loved the city and the people here but started noticing that everyone was so busy with work and surviving in the rat race that they have gotten disconnected from their emotions, missing the joy of life. I started writing to express and channelize my emotions and observation and by chance,my book got published and here I am.

Q. What is your book all about?

Take a moment, sit back and relax. Close your eyes, feel your heartbeat, and then start reading this book. Feel the lost moments in the midst of a busy schedule, feel the struggles... your own and others and join me on this journey of an emotional adventure. Where there is love, lust, romance, the first kiss, hate, struggle, anger, dreams, dare, heartbreaks, death and freedom.

He or she in the tales are just references to the people you know. And you know them very well... So who do you think they are? Come and join me in this exploration with an open heart and mind. 

Don't judge... Don't hate... Don't even admire or love. Just see me, the way I am.

Q. Where can we reach out to you or follow you?

Q. How is your book impacting readers?

Below is one amazon reviews for my book and I feel elated to say that readers were able to relate with the stories and feel the emotions of the moments which was my objective of writing the book.

  Review by ronak Shah 

 What is the one moment of your life that made your eyes wet with a smile on the face. For me, there are so many happy moments from childhood that made my eyes wet. I believe they all are blessings to me.

There are a total of 42 moments of her life. Some make you laugh, some make you think. And the last few tears your heart apart.

Q. Did you receive any award for your achievement?

Yes from NE8x – Best author 2019 and Women’s special achievement award 2020

I also mentor upcoming writers.

Q. Who are your leading literary mentors?

Though it’s a long list yet I will try to name some top few writers that have influenced me a lot. Paulo Coelho, Franz Kafka, Charles Bukowski, Rabindra Nath Tagore, Maha Devi Verma to name a few.

Q. What do you like to say to aspiring writers?

Writing is an inside activity and it flows from inside out. As a writer,it’s our responsibility to go through all the emotions of ours and others, through pain and pleasure without judgment. It is upon us to be the reflection of society and present it to the coming generation in the most authentic manner. To help them value the emotions, imaginations and creativity within each one of us. The power to observe our surroundings and then mold it as required. To remind everyone that we can create anything we want from our imagination. That we have a heart and soul.
