It was around 5:30 in the evening. I was at Indian Habitat center. I have taken a part in a writing competition and the chief guest was Ravinder singh – author of can love happen twice and the Red fm Rj swati. It was a great experience for me. I met so many young writers who love poetry, fiction and non-fiction. I was 53… Yes it was my registration number. Around 6.30, the fight for fame began. I went there not to win the badge, in fact I take it as an opportunity where I can actually meet Ravinder singh and Humari mornings Superhits banane wali Rj swati from Red fm.
Many people said about relationships, sex, nature, fiction and science fiction. All of the participants were already prepared and got their work to express prior. It was the turn of number 52 and Dhak-Dhak Dhak-Dhak that was the sound of my heart when they called number 53. I have not prepared anything. In the last ten minutes, I wrote some lines about life. I was shivering, yet managed to speak about my thoughts in front of the judges, Special guests and not to forget- audience.
Before I can read my words in front of people, I asked Ravinder sir to answer my simple yet complex question.
He said I don’t mind, but make sure that your time is running. You have two minutes to present your work. I replied to him- It’s fine sir. Oh come on! How can I miss this chance? I asked him that how will you describe the life in one word. He smiled and replied- Life, for me it’s a journey. And After that, I read my poem about Life on the stage.
It was an awesome day…. or you can say night… I was there till 9.30. I wish I could hear some other stories, but it was getting late. I cannot stop myself to share the post with my readers. Hope you all will enjoy it too.
