A New Author’s Writing Journey

posted on: 11 November 2017 by Terry Aziz, Source: Huffpost

Rajeev Saxena was not a born writer. When a child is born, he or she can express themselves by crying, but can’t do so by writing. Rajeev still remembers his first contribution to a Hindi newspaper. When he was probably around 12 years old, there used to be a famous soap opera on Indian Television called Rajani. Back then, things were very different. There was only one TV channel in India, which was called, ‘Delhi Doordarshan’. You’d watch its programs on your black and white television sets, probably using a 40-foot antenna that was on your roof with the guy-wires that extended to your neighbors’ houses. Even then, the picture was not sharp, especially if you lived far from the capital, Delhi, since that’s where the transmission was coming from. That was one of the reasons why people of Delhi were proud of where they lived.

It’s global world now. How do you decide where a person is from? I was born in a place about which I have no memories as moved out when I was six months old. My parents come from a place called Farrukhabad in Uttar Pradesh that I have visited only once in my life. I’ve spent my childhood in small towns of Uttar Pradesh such as Atrauli near Aligarh, Mainpuri and Orai. US has been my home too. I’ve been staying in US almost for one third of my age so far. I hope this gives you the idea.

Why do you write? To express myself. I feel that you have the full control of the world when you have pen in your hand. It gives wings to my imagination.
