Sathya Saran

1. Your journey as an author...

My journey as an author has been a constant learning curve. I try to push myself to explore new ways of expression. So while my pieces in From me to you are chatty and intimate, my short stories are written to pique the reader's interest and make her laugh or cry or to shock her. In my biographies too I have used different approaches. Ten years with Guru Dutt is in two distinct voices. The SD Burman bio is written like a novel weaving in facts, voices, interviews. And Jagjit Singh is a straight bio but written in a racy style to appeal also to the younger generation.

2. What is more fun? Being an editor or an author?
As an editor I enjoyed the constant excitement and adrenaline rush of audience feedback every fortnight. It was a job that demanded many skills including interpersonal and people management as well as marketing. I learnt loads on the job. An author's work life is lonely but enriching in a different way. And I prefer writing any day to administration.

3. Would you like to throw some light on your upcoming two books?
My next book is culled from my life as a journalist and editor. And I am simultaneously starting on another filmi bio which again is full of music.

4. As an editor, would you like to convey something to the budding writers?
The same lesson that I share with my students of journalism at nift. Read widely, read wisely. Assimilate styles to find your own. Improve your vocabulary. And most important write from the heart.

Longer than in anywhere else,

I always promise myself

Soul love

I have not fallen in the love of body

But merely wwith a soul,

And it makes a difference..

And then my soul saw you and

It kind of went on ‘oh there you are I have been looking

For you.’

મૃતાત્માઓ સ્વર્ગના પ્રવેશદ્વારે લાઈનમાં ઉભા હતા !



ધર્મરાજે પ્રથમ ઉભેલા મૃતાત્માને પૂછ્યું " તમે કોણ હતા ? "



મૃતાત્માએ કહ્યું " મહારાજ હું એક ટેક્ષી ચાલક હતો વર્ષો સુધી ટેક્ષીમાં મુસાફરોને તેઓના ઈચ્છીત સ્થળે મુકી આવતો હતો !… Continue

આંખથી જે રંગ છલ્કયા યાદ છે?

ને,પછી જે રંગ બદલ્યા યાદ છે?

લાલ લીલો વાદળી ને જાંબલી,

દિલમા જે મેઘ વરસ્યા યાદ છે?

કાન-રાધા ગાઇ સંગે રાગ જે,

મસ્તી -મસ્તીમાં થઈ ગઈ દોસ્તી, દોસ્તો : આ દોસ્તી છે ઘણી સસ્તી, પણ રસ્તામાં પડી નથી મળતી,લાગણીઓની મજૂબત દોરે બંધાય છે આ દોસ્તી, હસાવે અને રડાવે પણ છે આ દોસ્તી, સુખમાં મજા અને દુ:ખમાં સાથ પણ અપાવનારી છે આ દોસ્તી, દોસ્તીની આ જ વાત તો છે બહુ નિરાલી તેમાં… Continue
