VV Conversations – Porishtaes author of Untraveled Roads to Sunshine

“Writing does not understand any boundaries, age is one of them”, this line fits well with our recent addition to the esteemed list of authors.  A young 15 years old poetess that goes by the name -Porishtaes is here with us to share her journey of writing verses and becoming a published author using Voice Verso.

Porishtaes is a 15-year-old, just on the verge  of finishing her 12 Board exams and looking forward to make her career in literature.  Lets’ hear from a young school student and her journey to become a published author through her Book – Untraveled Roads to Sunshine,  here.

1) What inspired you to write a Book?

It was something I decided impulsively, a spur of the moment decision. I was a happy child who had matured suddenly in her high school due to a lot of things that pushed me into hell. I was in depression for three months, writing, writing and writing, until I finally came out of it.It was hard,very very hard,but sometimes when you come to know the world of your age, when you know the people who you know will stand for you,life becomes a decimal better.And that takes a lot of effort.
Every family has problems,but I,being the insecure,over thinking kid often took the meaningless taunts by them to heart.I always wanted to a publish a book,and wanted to start earning for the family.Always.Just like my dad,who had started working at almost the same age as mine.

I was in a conflict with myself,arguing about how I had decided my way of life,when the silly thoughts became concrete.I knew where to go,I just did not know how to,and I am very very grateful to voiceverso for each and everything.

2) How this idea of materializing a Book for verse come to you ?

I was browsing through the normal Instagram stories when one of my acquaintances had put one about her pleasure on getting featured on the bookshots page. Naturally being a teenager,15-year-old kid, I stalked them up and they turned out to be a publishing site. God bless them, an amazing one!

Poems have always earned me a bonus point, whether it was an essay for school, speech for competitions, verses for sharing, or just simple rants on being so depressed all the time. On finding voiceverso, I knew I had finally found out the way.

3) What message to young budding writers you wish to give ?

There is no particular message actually. Everyone is different, everyone is unique. I think not only the young, budding writers but each writer, how much ever pro they maybe, should write what they want to,freely without any fear.

4) How is the landscape of publishing and sharing your voice through technology helped you?

 More than I can imagine.Technology is one of the most speedily increasing and easily accessible assets in the country and I am blessed to have it as a canvas for painting my career.

What is the meaning of Porishtaes? Why this pen name ?

The meaning of Porishtaes…well,it is the name of my angels,my FARISHTES (in Hindi), so yes it holds a very important meaning and place to me.

6) Any new book you are working on?

For now,I am just focusing on enhancing myself,the rest depends on future.

7) Book seems to be more of romance and erotic poetic collection? Any similarity /inspiration drawn from your personal life ? How?

My first poem was a love poem,and since it is a very queer concept to me,I write more of it.Home lies within darkness,hence no inspiration to give away for now :) (giggles)

8) What sort of readers you believe will connect to this more ?

I always take a poem, in a lot of different ways. Every sentence, for me at least, is a new verse, a new inspiration. If the readers connect to it, if they take it on a level and interpret, I think all ages can connect to them.

9) You are just 15, and you are already a published author. How does it feel?

Phew, 15 is a very difficult age,because boards and writing do not go along very well. But being a published author feels absolutely great. More than I can express.

10) Any word for Voice Verso – eBook Publishing and social networking platform for authors?

Voiceverso is the best platform one could use and I think I am blessed to have been a customer of its services.
