Interviewer: Congratulations Author on your wonderful book “An Unmatched Couple’s Misfit Relationship”, Biswajit Mishra Ji!. Please share what response you are getting on your maiden work from the readers?
Biswajit: Thank you very much, the team Literatures Light. It’s really wonderful getting a recognition as an Author. Slowly as I started receiving the feedbacks and appreciations by readers and friends, it excelled my satisfaction level.
Interviewer: When did it dawn upon you that you wanted to be a writer? Do you have a set schedule for writing, or are you one of those who write only when they feel inspired?
Biswajit: I have only one schedule to work on my passion that is by burning the midnight oil. Once the material is fabricated inside the mind, I do take the time in weekends too. Though I was consistently engaged into the writing since a decade or two, but writing a book really came into the bag of my passion was during 2014.
Interviewer: “An Unmatched Couple’s Misfit Relationship” is a very realistic in terms of plot. What inspired you to write this book?
Biswajit: What I believe is, either an object or a subject is needed to be inspired. So, the first I got is the subject. For a long time, I have been observing the scholar girls getting into lucrative jobs after their academics, fall in love and ultimately settle their nest. But, the horrible thing I minutely observed was about those few girls, who by somehow could not be able to cope up with their consequent developments. Then only, once found the plot, very soon framed my protagonist, and found that matched. Then what…. Once plot is ready, and your lead character is matched, you are bound to sail through 55000 words….
Interviewer: In the book “An Unmatched Couple’s Misfit Relationship” you have added some touching quotes and showcased them at the end of each chapter. So who wrote them, was it you readers might want to know?
Biswajit: I was not satisfied to simply end a chapter and then start a new one. I took up here the point of view of a reader, there I wanted to bridge between the chapters to bind my readers well within. These quotes or small stanzas were the summary of the existing chapter in a poem format, as well as the opener for the next chapter. I had to frame those stanzas so meticulously that it should successfully prompt the inner voice of protagonist at the end of every chapter.
Interviewer: Does the protagonist hold a special place in your heart? If so, why?
Biswajit: Unless a protagonist touch a writer’s heart, a writer can never become an Author. The much I can say is, every fiction has a little bit of non-fiction camouflaged within.
Interviewer: What other genre you are interested in reading and writing? Readers might ask so.
Biswajit: As my asset is my imagination, I think my genre to be fiction. My base is society and discriminating gender. So, next 2 or 3 novels I would produce more feelings in this genre.
Interviewer: How do you deal with emotional impact of a book (on yourself) as you are writing the story?
Biswajit: Worthy question for me… at present my view on emotion and feelings is rich and high, don’t know I may change my taste. As far as dealing an emotion is concerned, let me explain you what I observe…. A lady empty stomach standing in a line in front of Lord Shiva, along with her 3 years daughter one side and the Puja Thaali at the other. Sooner she returns back she has to pack the tiffin for her husband and consequently prepare her son for school. For long half an hour the daughter tried hard to take that thaali from her mother, suppose in fascination with the flowers and leafs in the thaali. But finally the irritation of mother and the determination of daughter got clashed…. Where everywhere, the force applied to witness the peace, the daughter finally receives a strong slap very open through the crowd. Their only my story started, to judge the feelings of daughter, to estimate the gravity of her offence, to estimate the repent by mother after her act…. And, many more….
Interviewer: If you had to describe character Paayesha in three words, what would those three words be?
Biswajit: Simple, Sober and Sensible…
Interviewer: What do you hope your readers take away from this book?
Biswajit: Readers will definitely interpret with their maturity, but a simple line in my novel would someday or other realise them real…. That was…. ‘The time, the Present and the Reality are three true ingredients of life, rest all virtual… a mirage…!’
Interviewer: What were the key challenges you faced when writing this book?
Biswajit: Due to many other job and responsibilities, I sometimes deflected out of a consistent focus through the lead character. But, somehow managed.
Interviewer: What does literary success look like to you?
Biswajit: A long way to go…. High determination and consistency in focus will encourage your ability and excel your satisfaction. /least bothered for success.
Interviewer: Any advice you would like to give to aspiring writers?
Biswajit: Do not follow anyone’s shadow, just make your shadow follows you.
