Two interviews: CNN-IBN and Screen

Here is the video of the CNN-IBN interview with Somen Mishra, sorry I took some time to put it up:

And the story in Screen by Rajiv Vijaykar:

"How do you write with so much depth at the age of 34 and in today’s age of vacuous cursory rhymes? Is it because your journalistic outlook colours your verse?

(Smiles) ‘Cursory’ rhymes is a good phrase. Yes, I do admit that the job of a journalist takes me to the real India and puts me in touch with emotions that are very real. It is a happy meeting where both the creative writer and the reporter in me are affecting each other, and not just one-way. "
