Inspiration

The little girl is an inspiration for all of us. However, we wanted to know what is her inspiration and what motivated her to write at this tender age. To this, Abhijita said, “My surroundings are the ones motivating me. I write whatever I hear, see and feel. I write it on a piece of paper and convert it into a poem or a story.”

Grandparents

Abhijita has published three books and a writer is always a reader first. So, we wanted to know what kind of books the talented writer likes to read herself. Abhijita said that “I like to read Ruskin Bond and Sudha Murthy’s books the most. I also like to read funny stories and sometimes, I like to read adventurous stories. Something exciting always interests me.”

Hobbies

She is just a young child and this is the age to do what interests you and enjoy to the fullest. Besides writing, Abhijita also likes to do other things including, “drawing, painting and spending time with my family.”

Productivity In Pandemic

We all know that the past one and a half year has been quite difficult for all of us due to the pandemic. However, this period has given the people time to take a break from their busy lives and focus on themselves as well as their passion.

This is also true for school students. They didn't do much homework which gave them the time to explore their interests. Similarly, Abhijita also used this time to focus on her writing. She said, “As we didn’t have much homework due to online classes, I got a lot of time to write. I kept myself busy in a constructive way and I chose writing for this.”
