(Interview published on May 04, 2015, ChennaiLiveNews.com)
Life is not all sugar and spice and all things nice. Life is a bitter-sweet pill enriched by variety and creativity and often swallowed with self pity or piety. It all depends upon the liver (pun intended) whether he/she looks for sympathy or empathy at unavoidable unpleasant situations life presents.
It is little wonder that features which are also known as “people journalism” are increasingly becoming popular in today’s tension filled world as people would love to read about experiences of others like them and feel they are not alone to moan and despair or feel helpless.
As a feature writer of long standing and a columnist as well as an optimist looking at the Lighter side of Life, I would like to share my thoughts on a variety of topics through my site “Just Li’ES”(Life’s experiences) which I hope kindles the mind of my readers especially students pursuing journalism courses to give expression to their creativity, be it through prose or poetry. Feedback to this site is more than welcome.
Experiences are classified under categories: Lighter side of Life, Travel, Book Launches/ Reviews and Chennai Potpourri. The categories are sub-classified as sub-pages under each of the categories for easy readability. Enjoy the experiences. Comments are welcome!
