Featured Interview With Garriema Shah
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Myself Garriema Shah, a typical Taurus girl, strong headed, now developed a habit of straight-talking without any diversions. Born & brought up in Northern part of India, which is considered to be a very conservative sort of region in India especially for females, which actually drove me to be more descriptive in my writings! Currently stays in Mumbai, India. Yes, I do have a dog!
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Very much inspired by my father, as he used to say, "Books are your best friends". Since teenage, I developed the habit of reading especially non-fiction. More inclined towards metaphysics, energies and cosmos. However, till now I have penned fictions most which includes fantasy, horror, supernatural, romance, thriller & time travel! Somewhere in my heart I believe that these things somewhere exist in some or the other world! Maybe I am practically & logically wrong but yeah I believe in the concept of Stephen Hawking!
I started writing after loads and loads of acute observation of people's complicated lives in general, it was year 2017 when I first published my book!
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Well to be very honest I try to read every book on this planet whenever time allows me! My favourite author is Paulo Coelho. Favourite genre is Spirituality & Metaphysics. Inspired by Agatha Christie!
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book, “I can see you” is a story of three friends and a dog, lost in wonderland trying to figure out hows, wheres, ifs and but(s) of their sudden disappearance from their world. And their struggles to get back home.
Children have the habit of playing different types of games but as they grow old, they become more mature and responsible. But there are some lot who always behaves like a child. Either they don’t want to grow or there may be some discrepancy in their growing years or maybe because of wrong parenthood.
Ishan, Malini and Saina are 3 close friends, they are in their college. Ishan is a college dropout as he is more inclined towards new inventions and discoveries. Saina is an intelligent meritorious girl, who is completely into spirituality because of her godly natured mother. Malini is the unique character, who is always lost. Don’t know what she is doing and why she is doing. She just live for the heck of living without using any common sense. And the credit for her “lost personality” goes to her grand mother. She is one of the classic character.
How they get stuck in an unknown world?
These 3 friends in their childhood had the habit of playing no nonsense game wherein Malini, the most unique of all speaks something and rest of them hold each other’s hands. While doing this they all enjoy, playing such games when your age is a single digit is fair enough. But here these 3 friends play such game during their adult years which is very stupid of them but they do. Because Malini can never be an adult and friends are friends, they have to support each other.
