When did you begin writing?
RP: I began writing in 2007, trigged by a writing workshop I attended at Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, Mumbai. I wrote the story Tropical Estuary which five years later got published in an international magazine without a word changed.
What was your first muse, if you remember?
RP: My first muse was the silence of the estuary near Dumas, Gujarat that was the trigger point for my story ‘Tropical Estuary’. How noiselessly the sea and river make love, and for so so long. After that I have had many muses: objects, philosophies, nature, animal, science, ecosystems, and the behaviour of man, woman, and child.
