Let us know about Chaitali Bangre and her book in her own words:
Well, I always loved writing and that was the only thing which dragged me in this profession of “CONTENT WRITING”. I am working as a “Content and concept writer” for Vcreate solutions, Nagpur and as a moderator for Punch Tantra.
I completed my degree course my Priyadarshani’s J.L.Chaturvedi college of engineering, Nagpur in IT department and later, I did my PG from MIT college, Pune.
The greatest achievement so far is the appreciation I received from “Captain of romantics”, Ravinder Singh. I remember the day when I read his “Your dreams are mine now” and thought about giving him the feedback for the same. He immediately responded back with a short note of appreciation which in itself is very precious for me.
What inspired you to start writing?
Well, the answer to this is connected with my love for writing “SOCIAL WRITE-UPS”. While I was giving my graduation prelims, there was an incident in Nagpur which inspired me to write. Ummm…I won’t reveal that incident because it had many nightmares associated with it. I still remember the day, when situations were against that girl, so, I thought I should write about the pain, the sorrows and the darkness in which she was made to plunge. Then, I wrote a 500 words write-up and submitted it to “THE HITAVADA”, Nagpur. After reading this, they asked me if I can write something for the ‘YOUTH ZONE’ and to which I agreed and that is how I became a mother of my single child “WAY TO FALL IN LOVE AND DREAMS”.
What did you like to read when you were a girl?
Being a girl, I always fascinate reading “LOVE STORIES” not because they make us fall in love, but because they add wings to our dreams and make us realize that right in the middle of life, you start dreaming about that Prince charming who would bend down on his knee and help you wear those Slavic shoes. Every girl holds this dream of owning those glass slippers and that what makes me going to read those love tales always.
What is the greatest challenge in writing a book?
Well, if you keep asking the same question to all the authors, they will say that our dreams about creating plots don’t let us sleep. And that is the biggest challenge when you write a book. You are always deeper in your thoughts about how to proceed with your next episode. Then no responses from the publication houses also add more to this challenging bucket. I am sure; every author goes through this one day or the other.
How much research do you do before writing the book?
I always make it a point to do some hard work before I go on writing. But, whatever I have experienced as a girl, I make sure that I don’t miss any of the incidents and without giving it a second thought, I simply jot them down. So, it’s all about “Those-real-incidents-in-life that happens with you”.
What motivated you to write the book “Way to Fall in Love and Dreams”?
Fear and interest both together! Yes, true that is! Fear of failure when you take the course opposite to the custom and an interest of conveying the current societal pressures.
Can you tell us more about your latest book “Way to Fall in Love and Dreams”?
This book is all about that little girl Aiyesha and her only Mr.Honcho, Kabir in her life. It is also about “How love and dreams both can go together”. This story will relate to every girl not because she had that Mr. Right with her life, but because there is this society that doesn’t let a girl step her in her desired shoes. There are times when our own people tear us apart and this is what I want to convey in my book. This book is a mixture of aspirations turning down, dreams coming true, love blossoming, arguments shattering and things turning your world upside down. Whosoever read this book uptill now, came up to me and said that ‘Hey, that’s my story!’ And this the biggest compliment I find happiness in.
How did you came up with the idea of writing romantic fiction genre book?
As I said, I love reading romanticism a lot and that was the main reason in trying hands over this romantic fiction.
Who are your favourite authors?
Ravinder Singh and Elaine Williams
How much time do you dedicate for writing on a daily basis?
I dedicate 5 hours a day for writing.
What words of wisdom would you like to give to aspiring writers?
Your writing skills are the greatest weapons and that makes you so elusive, so attractive and so dangerous. So, don’t give up even in the strong winds, surely, you are going to find a beaming sun one day!
