Its indeed my glee to interview and introduce Reetwika Banerjee to my blog readers and to Reetwika fans around the world. Lets hear from Reetiwka on her works and much more from personal front.
1. How do you see writing? As a hobby or a passion?
Of course passion. I can sacrifice anything for the sake of writing.
2. How important is research to you when writing a book?
Extremely imp. In today’s techno savvy world, it is a foolish thought to assume your readers to be dumb. Thanks to Google, the task has now become simpler for both writer as well as reader.
3. What, according to you, is the hardest thing about writing?
Recovering from creative constipation which I think happens with world’s all creative brains, not just writers.
4. Are you satisfied with your success?
Am I successful? Getting a few awards does not mean success to me. Success is much bigger an achievement. To me, success means making my countrymen proud of my contributions to Modern Literature. Hopefully someday in future, that moment will come.
5. What is your motivation for writing more?
The changing world around me. I want to lock the present in my writings so that after a century (if the earth sustains) our successors would know how the world was 100 years back.
6. What would you say is your biggest failure in life?
When I lost my son.
7. What do you do in your free time?
Leisure means leisure for me. I write in between my work so that the pressure gets released in the process.
8. What advice would you like to give writers who are struggling with their first novels?
Never stop writing if you don’t get a reader or a publisher. Or they criticise your thoughts. Writing should continue not just to get published, but to channel out your emotions. You never know when that golden moment would knock your door.
9. Who is the most supportive of your writing in your family?
My husband and mom.
10. If you were to rate your work, how would you rate it?
3/5 – Still a long way to go.
11. Can you tell us about your current projects?
Working on a few film scripts and a novel. Planned release end of 2019.
12. How active are you on social media? And how do you think it affects the way you write? Can your readers interact with you? ?
Very relevant question in today’s context. I am quite active on Facebook but not all social media platforms.

Writing becomes incompetent if we don’t walk along the stream. Definitely, my writings are influenced as well as dependent on social media. Many of my background research are carried out via social media to reach a wider population with just the click of a mouse.
A native of Kolkata, Reetwika stays in Bangalore to pursue her professional career. However, on a personal note, Reetwika owns a very socially empathetic heart.
A die hard Bengali by soul, she is closely associated with couple of charitable societies of Bengal – a rural orphanage (Ram Krishna Ashram) and an urban spastic children home (Ashraya) where she plays a tiny part in making their lives look truly beautiful and honoured.
Divinely blessed by St. Teresa of Calcutta in her childhood, she dreams to follow Mother’s preaching by heart and create a liberal India for all.
