Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: Tell us something about yourself Swati.
Swati Sarangi: I’m currently pursuing Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. So, basically I’m a post graduate student by profession and a writer by passion. I’m someone who has an intense obsession with words, numbers and colours. Being quite reticent in nature, I feel very expressive when I pen down my thoughts. I’m so much passionate about writing that I never miss a single page of my diary! I can be contacted through- swatisarangi@gmail.com and/or facebook:

Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: You are quite an accomplished writer, your works have been accepted by many publishing houses, tell us the secret, if you don’t mind!
Swati Sarangi: Thanks for the praise! My journey to the field of writing has just begun, I feel. I feel that I’m just a beginner. It always feels so great when my works are accepted. The secret to my writing is my positive outlook towards the world around me. This in turn offers me a gift of observing things present in my vicinity and binding them through words.

Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: Where do you see yourself as a writer ten years from now? Will you try stories too?
Swati Sarangi: Future is the most unpredictable concept. So, it’s difficult for me to predict it at this point of time. I write out of my passion, there’s nothing more profound than passion for something. I will continue to write as long as this passion is alive. Yes, I will experiment with stories too.

Sharmishtha basu@ Agnishatdal: Will you tell us a little about your blogs, their contents and urls?
Swati Sarangi: I have maintained two blogs with my sister, Sweta- creative-constellation.blogspot.com and wordstoworld.wordpress.com . The first one is nearly 3 and a half years old whereas the later one has been created recently which has been dedicated to short forms of writing like Haiku and flash fiction. My sister also contributes to these blogs.

Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: Do you have something to suggest us, the wannabe successful authors, especially those who are employed or are heading for a career in the dreary real world?
Swati Sarangi: My suggestion for wanna-be-authors would be to just follow their passion relentlessly, rest everything will follow eventually.

Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: Any suggestion for Agnishatdal?
Swati Sarangi: Agnishatdal is an amazing platform for debut writers. It is an agglomeration of all forms of art – writing, digital art,photography. It would be better if the presentation (such as font size, color) is made little bit more oriented and uniform. For popularity of this Ezine, more focus should be given on its advertisement.

Sharmishtha Basu@Indie Adda: Do you have anything to say, suggest Indie Authors? As a successful author who has made publishers accept her works?
Swati Sarangi: To Indie Authors, I just want to suggest to keep following their passion. Writing is like a divine gift which should be nurtured effortlessly. Keep writing!

Sharmishtha Basu@INDIE ADDA: Tell us something about yourself Swati, who are you in earthly sense and in reality?
Swati Sarangi: I’m currently pursuing Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. So, basically I’m a post graduate student by profession and a writer by passion. I’m someone who has an intense obsession with words, numbers and colours. Being quite reticent in nature, I feel very expressive when I pen down my thoughts. I’m so much passionate about writing that I never miss a single page of my diary!

Sharmishtha Basu@INDIE ADDA: How do you juggle B.Tech and poetry? Most career oriented people lament how poetry dries up inside them when they go to office!
Swati Sarangi: As already mentioned above, I’ve always been inclined to reading and writing since my childhood days. When you’re really passionate about something, you don’t need to take any special slot out of your day to pursue your passion. I’ve even composed some of the poems or written some articles during uninteresting lectures and labs in college days! 😛 There were days when I could not be regular with the process of writing but that never made me to leave my passion.

Sharmishtha Basu@INDIE ADDA: What made you a poet and a published author?
Swati Sarangi: During primary classes, my father used to compose poems for me and I used to dream about the day when I would be able to compose poems like my father. So, primary motivation for writing came from my father. Later on, I got the inspiration from my classmates who were good at writing. I composed a poem for the first time when I was in class 6th and that was on my mother. Appreciation from my parents, teachers and friends ignited my passion for writing. Publishing my works helped me to get the viewpoints of readers which encouraged me to work on my writing abilities.

Sharmishtha Basu@INDIE ADDA: Tell us something about your book!
Swati Sarangi: I’ve contributed two poems for an ebook ‘Addiqtd book of poetry’ by the publisher Laureate Journal Literature Fraternity (February 6, 2015). It’s an ebook of collection of modern poetry by contemporary poets.

Sharmishtha Basu@INDIE ADDA: Where can we buy it?
Swati Sarangi: Here is the link to Addiqtd book of poetry – https://amazon.com/AddiQtd-Book-Poetry-Swati-Sarangi-ebook/dp/B00TBPEUNS#navbar . It is available in Kindle store at Amazon.com.

Sharmishtha Basu@INDIE ADDA: Tell us a little bit about your blog and do give us their addresses.
Swati Sarangi: I have maintained two blogs with my sister, Sweta- https://creative-constellation.blogspot.com and https://wordstoworld.wordpress.com . The first one is nearly 3 and a half years old whereas the later one has been created recently which has been dedicated to short forms of writing like Haiku and flash fiction. My sister also contributes to these blogs.

Sharmishtha Basu@INDIE ADDA: Another one coming? Story or poems? spoiler?
Swati Sarangi: The answer to this question is even a mystery to me as well!  I write down whatever comes to my mind. I’ve never been specific about any form of writing.
