Interview Series – Dr Pragya Suman

Introduction : Here I Dr Pragya Suman has  given my brief interview. I liked questions asked in an experimental way.



When / why did you start writing poetry? – answers in adjectives


In  my  heydays 

Intuition

Curiosity

To  lighten  mood


How do you write a poem? – answer in five verbs.

I don’t  wait  to  come  inspiration

It  drips  in  drops

I  like  drafting  multiple  times

At  first  i  doodle  the  waves  erupts  in  me

Then  i  decipher  the  doodle  and  format  it


What is your definition of what experimental poetry is?

Life  has  many  hidden  mysteries. We  are  unacquainted with the bulk  of  it. Experimental  poetry  is a deterred  path  from  traditional  one  to  search for new  mysteries  and  facades.  It  is  effacing  boundaries  and    searching  nondualism. In  Hinduism  non dualism  is the core   of  spirituality.  To  discover  it  just  experiments  among  fragments  and  deconstruction.  Poetry  is  the  most  difficult  part  of  art  and  experimental  poetry  is   a  bead   in  its  endless  chain.



Have you done many interviews before? Do you find them repetitive? Repetitive? Repetitive?

I  have  given  fewer  ones. Yes  some  points  were  repetitive



What’s a favorite snack you like when poet-ing?

Cookies  along  with coffee


What are you kinda obsessed with?

Books  books  and  books


Do you tell your social circle about your poet-ing?\

Yes, I like  to  share  in  my  literary  groups  on social  media. I  share  it  mainly  for  their  critical  opinion.


How do you rebel?

Make  the  subject a laughing  stock. Humor  is the most  lethal  weapon. I  like the dark  humor of  postmodernists.


Tell me a literary / science fact or joke, please.

I  have been preparing for  four  weeks  to  write  an impromptu  poem.
