Interview with Biswajit Mishra

Q.1 Tell us a little about yourself? Perhaps something not many people know?
A. My academics were in Science, my profession continued with Accounting and Finance, and my passion is into Literature. I served for Indian Air Force and thereafter, presently engaged in Allahabad Bank. There are few plots readily available in my mind which I need to express with my imagination and point of view, finally coming out with a half dozen novels in the coming years.

Q.2 Are we going to read more from you in the near future? Any new project you’re working on?
A. Sure, as I was fortunate taking part actively during Kargil war 1999, while then serving in Air Force. So, the next novel Across the Border will have a beautiful theme presenting a soldier in fiction in relation to that war.

Q.3 Where do you get your ideas?
A. I love to imagine with my perspective getting explored and hope my ideas are the byproducts of it.

Q.4 What advice do you have for writers?
A. I feel I am not that much matured enough to advise. But surely share my belief that is, What you can write and what you write can never be done by anyone else, so carry on stamping your originality.

Q.5 Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
A. I regard a bit about readers, but not exactly compromising with my originality. Because I fear if I start walking without my originality. I may satisfy a lot many but would fail to satisfy me.

Q.6 If you could tell your younger writing self-anything, what would it be?
A. Believe a line always, find a change between today and tomorrow. Anticipating a tomorrow while being in a today is the best growth you can manage into your writing habit.

Q.7 What are the most important magazines or websites for writers to subscribe to?
A. I am hardly into it. So, I am sorry failing for this reply.

Q.8 What is the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
A. A very strong question indeed. I truly have realized the difficulties in a span of my seven months while into this novel. Simply I lived the character for seven months, as I wanted to justify the real feelings would have been borne by a lady on her such unpredictable junctures in life. Portraying a lady in the first person with all her inside feelings, reciprocated to the awful situations and surroundings, being a male writer was a challenge to me. And, I am too glad that it was a presentation to be stamped as a debut novel.

Q.9 How do you select the names of your characters?
A. I personally do not find any specific objective as far as the naming concept for a novel. I just match a name that would reconcile to portray the character of my imagination. But surely, I would admit that the name of the protagonist should hold the whole a frame of your novel and that I did justify a character, named Paayesha.

Q.10 Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
A. Yes, like everyone, I too am very particular to my book’s review. Nothing exactly a feeling of good or bad, because it’s true that if one of my readers attends pub and disco every weekend and somewhere he or she was handed over with a story of a protagonist with a multiple mind-fractures under the civilization surveillance. Definitely, he or she would overlook the gist of the novel. So, reviews are really a companion to your level of inspiration, but you should not live into it.

Q.11 Does your family supports your career as a writer?
A. Yes, otherwise this novel would have released somewhere in 2029, not in 2019. Because my only constraint is, lack of time. And those seven months my whole family did everything to make me free of all sorts of responsibilities towards them. I just owe to them all.

Q.12 What do your fans mean to you?
A. I just love them because they are only the real fuel to ignite your creativity.

Q.13 How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
A. Just started with An Unmatched Couple's Misfit Relationship, so indeed it is my favorite.

Q.14 Do you have any unique and quirky writing habits?
A. I will sometimes write a pure literary novel with all my uniqueness pitched and tuned. As because readers taste has changed day by day with a shadowed impact by virtual creativity and showcase, where the theme scrolled up lavishly while extracting the cream, twist, and pace of the presentation; I am just scared to engage in a literary kind to attain a book of not less than 350 pages or more.

Q.15 What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?
A. When I will complete work for a nonliving/semi-living in the first person, I will grade that as my best accomplishment.

Q.16 What is the most unethical practice in the publishing industry?
A. Still in research, unless it is over, that will be early to comment.

Q.17 Who edited your book and how did you select him/her?
A. Deliberately, I did not take any professional editor. I just wanted my first work as raw as I am. I did not want to chisel my feelings with a boundary of a few grammar and punctuations. I believed, a good reader will bypass your shortcomings covered and managed with your feelings and expressions.

Q.18 Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?
A. It's only one, My grandpa. The day he left this earth at 5.45pm; the same evening after 105 minutes, at 7.30pm I stepped in. The only confidence I follow from him as he was an Odiya Literature Pandit, but I was 105 minutes late to meet him once.

Q.19 What is your favorite book and why?

Q.20 Share the experience of your journey so far?
A. It's really wonderful. Once when you start getting recognition as an Author of a Novel, it excels your self-esteem.
