Interview with Developmental Feminist Mayaa SH

1. Whom do you credit your success to for the field of writing and women empowerment?

It would be unfair to name any particular organisation or any specific person who has been a driver to my key understanding of nuances of life. However, I would bestow my heartfelt felicitations on all those voices that have always believed in one thing that “ I have dared to Dream beyond the limitations of societal barriers of either limiting beliefs or understanding in life ”. I owe a lot to my teachers who have played a crucial role during the initial years of my understanding of creative acumen and academic intelligentsia .I have been very fortunate as well to have a pool of great friends who encouraged me in all facets of my life as a life support .I have been writing since the age of ten .I converted this passion into a vision to echo voices of millions of women across the country into depicting the works of contemporary literature to reflect a society's social and/or political viewpoints. This enabled me to embark on a journey of thousand miles to work extensively for women rights and empowerment through realism ,connections to current events and socioeconomic messages in all my work .Empowering women is essential to the health and social development of families, communities and countries. When women are living safe, fulfilled and productive lives, they can reach their full potential, contributing their skills to the workforce and can raise happier and healthier children.

2. How would you look at your journey so far ?

My journey has been full of wonderful experiences and times of great learnings .This not only evolved me as an individual but also took me out of any complacency in life .One can be a full time writer in India. It is a myth that in order to get more reverence one has to leave the country to earn more name and fame .The fact that one is focussed and is determined to pursue any expertise in any field, one must go in pursuit of that dream or aspiration in life irrespective of what will others think . To plan your career trajectory well , one can begin early by allowing oneself the luxury of exposing oneself to courses or certifications that hone one’s skills to the next level. Many have exceptional writing talent, but those who seem so blessed usually started writing in childhood and got encouragement along the way. It is a good idea to commence early with one’s aspiration to become a writer .The critical need for women's empowerment in shaping the nation's future. As a staunch advocate for gender equality and women's rights, I believe that the unwavering dedication to creating an environment where every woman can thrive and contribute meaningfully to society is imperative .Thereby, as the nation marches forward towards its developmental goals, the empowerment of women stands as a cornerstone, driving progress, inclusivity, and resilience.Key Issues in Women's Empowerment include Gender Inequality which lies at the heart of many challenges faced by women worldwide,Violence Against Women which remains a pervasive issue, affecting millions globally,Lack of Economic Opportunities and Gender-Based Discrimination.

3. How do you believe to excel in any field and what are your recommendations to all to maintain the same perspective ?

Only those who do hard work are called courageous. True courage lies in adopting the customs which the common people do not agree to adopt for fear of loss or lack of cooperation and fear of being judged.If you wish to position your writings well , you must create great value for your readers .It is a process that acts as a catalyst of exploring , creating and delivering value aligned to a brand or product development that one is either trying to highlight on or on captivating attention based on segmentation involved. However , it is the content of the writings that matters the most and what message any author /authoress is trying to echo. There is no harm in keeping the writings simple yet powerful in its content . Effective Communication is wherein the reader is able to comprehend its reference to context .

4. What is your understanding of maintaining consistency in being motivated as a person ?

Prosperity related successes are also available to the clever, hardworking and resourceful people, but that progress which can make the personality cultured and result in the field of deeds, is available only to those who are deeply loyal to the principles and ideals. The word self-belief is sometimes used in many contexts, but in reality, it should be used only to give an introduction to being loyal to beliefs and harbouring courage within oneself. Only those who do hard work are called courageous. True courage lies in adopting the customs which the common people do not agree to adopt for fear of loss or lack of cooperation and fear of being judged.Courage has its own importance. Tolerance power is different in every human being. The personality of a person depends on his or her resilience. The more the strength of tolerance increases in him or her, the more his or her personality will become brighter. Patience will develop in that person. Such a person can easily accomplish his or her work even in difficult situation. Courage is that quality by which a person can touch the top of success. This quality gives success to our spiritual power. It is a factor of character sophistication. To remain courageous and do something productive each day motivates me to constantly keep doing one's daily tasks .

5. What are the challenges that any writer can encounter ?

Being a writer is not easy. You may face many challenges and setbacks in your writing career, such as rejection, criticism, burnout, self-doubt, lack of motivation, or financial instability. So ,most of us belong to a generation before millennials and hence followed the structural norms of careers like being a doctor ,engineer or a scientist for that matter Struggling writers have difficulty coordinating the skills and strategies that they know, and are often overwhelmed by the demands of writing. Because they have so few success experiences with writing, they are easily discouraged. Writing is both harder and easier than you think. Harder because making a career as a writer requires exceptional organization and productivity. Easier because once you establish yourself, success requires only that you sit down each and every day to write. Writing is a diverse, wide-ranging field that opens doors to a large selection of career paths. As a writer, one can report for one's local paper, craft ad copy or draft technical documentation for tech companies.One must be confident of one's dreams and constantly work hard without losing hope in situations that might seem challenging at times .Authors who get major book deals, or if their books become best-sellers, can clear hundreds of thousands of millions of dollars a year. Successful screenwriters, similarly, can end up making enormous sums, but it's uncommon.

6. What is the advice you will give to the youth of this country ?

The will to succeed gives Strength even to the weakest of all seeds. If you are determined about your life goals and have an idea , no matter how simple , then you must start your journey of executing it.It does not matter which path you choose to reach your destination , what matters the most is if you were able to live your dream if writing an article or a book that you always dreamt of has been your dream , then begin implementing the idea to execution .All writers write from their gut or intuition , so always keep your energies calm and great so that you are at your highest actualisation of intellect and creativity to pen the best master piece .Always remember , if you are sincere in your efforts and consistent , you will accomplish all your goals one day . The world is a beautiful oyster to live in and all are pearls strung together in lustre of warmth and happiness. Hard Work has never betrayed anybody , everybody has started with their first book and carved a niche for themselves .

“Writing Is A Discipline , You Need to Worship It Next To God .”
