Meet The Multitalented Mamta Sharma of YQ
Our writer Vaishnavi caught up with Mamta Sharma. A Gulzar fan, with flair for writing, dancing and cooking; know about Mamta and her inspirations in this candid interview. Read on.
Q. Hi Mamta, before we begin, why don’t you let our readers know about you in a short 250 words bio.
A. It’s really tough to describe myself in 250 words. Well, will give a try. I belong to Jaipur, Rajasthan. Born and brought up in a typical Brahman middle class family. Early childhood was spent in Patna, which were the most beautiful days of my life and my father was working there then. We are three siblings, having two brothers and they really mean a lot to me. I am an ambivert, who takes time to get friendly. A true believer of love and humanity, an optimist, fun loving, mentally strong, hardly anything can make me break down and a day dreamer. Sometimes, a highly introvert person and at times, moody too.
Love to sketch, listening to songs, dancing and cooking.
In short, love to explore new things. I keep trying new hobbies as it helps me in refreshing with some new learning. Love to talk people from different domains but hate to get social on virtual media.
I am bad at formalities, I never keep anything inside, just spit it out no matter how hard it is. I am perfect with friends, and very bad at relationship. When it comes to friends, I believe in quality not in quantity.
Q. Mamta, as you said you had your most beautiful days at Patna.
Let us know what made it beautiful and memorable?
A. Sabhi ki tarah, mujhe bhi mere bachpan se behad pyar hai..par us bachpan ki ahimiyat ab samjh aati hai..patna me maine 7 th std tak padhai ki hai..vaha mujhe meri best friend mili..Jo aajtak mere saath hai..11 saal se mili nahi hu usse..par rishta aaj bhi vaisa hi hai..patna vo seher hai jisne mujhe humanity sikhaya..simplicity sikhayi...Kuch acche dost diye..vaha gandhi maidan jaakar cricket khelna.. Cycling karna...bhut acche din the..kyunki vo bachpan tha..or shyad isliye patna khaas ho gya mere liye.
Q. You said, ‘hardly anything can make you break down’. Who is the strength behind this?
A. Jab strength ki baat karti hu..Toh khud ka hi naam sabse pehle aata hai. Khud ka mind hi bolta hai ki..tum kamzor nahi ho sakti. Iska ye matlab nahi ki mai toot ti nahi..insaan hu beshak toot ti hoon..par bhut jaldi vapas khud ko jodti hu nayi ummeed ke saath..naye sapno ke saath...failure bhi jhela hai..kayi baar aansu bhi bahaaye hai..par thak kar baith ti nahi..hamesha yehi lagta h ki life me kuch accha hoga..Fir se us sapne ke pichhe nikal padti hu. In person baat karu toh..Mere bhaiya.. Meri strength hai.. Unhone mujhe hamesha support kiya hai..Mere boore waqt me..Vo hi the jinhone mujhe har problem se overcome karna sikhaya. Hum Vaise hi hote hai..jaisa hum khud ko dekhna chahte ho aur mai khud ko kabhi bhi kamjor nhi dekh sakti isiliye shyad mai khud ko hi Apna strength maanti hu.
Q. New hobbies!! Wow :) Which hobby you enjoy the most?
A. mujhe nayi nayi hobbies try karna accha lagta hai. Likhna or sketching karna bahut pasand hai. Sketching or painting ka shoukh mujhe bachpan se hai. Likhna maine 11th std se shuru kiya tha,feelings ke matter me introvert hu, jaldi share nahi karti kisi se isliye likhna shuru kar diya. Starting me toh yu hi likha karti thi..ab bhi yu hi likhti hu. Par Haa likhte likhte thoda improvement jaroor ho gya hai. Meri hamesha ek wish rahi hai..ki kisi din mai apne loved ones ka sketch banau or uspar khud se kuch acchi lines likhu..or fir unko gift karu. Inke alawa I love to ride bikes,bullet chalana bhut pasand hai, dance bhi karti hu, gulzaar ko padhti hu, creativity se har cheej karna accha lagta hai. Jab mann karta hai ki ye hobby try karni chahiye..kar leti hu.
Cooking bhi pasand hai..Try karti rehti hu. Dosto se saath hangout karti hu..foodieee hu toh khoob khaati hu. "khaane ke shoukheen hai" hahaha
Q. Very bad at relationship? Why? What do you expect to be in a perfect relationship?
A. Haa relationship nibhana bhut mushkil hota hai. Aap bandh jaate ho,aapki azaadi khatam ho jaati hai.saamne waale ki expectations hoti hai..Jaise connected rehna phn pe, regularly milna, apne sad or happy moments share karna. Ye sab mujhe burden lagta hai. Mai jyada baat nahi kar sakti phn pe, text pe. Koi rooth jaaye toh manana nahi aata. Mujhe personally ye lagta hai ki "ye sab mere bas ki nahi"Dosto me naa roothne ka darr naa maanaane ki fikar. Kuch bhi keh do, gussa kar lo, apne hote hai..boora nahi maante kabhi. Relationship pyar ki vajah se nibhta hai..aajkal "pyar ki definition hi badal gyi hai" gf/bf stress mitane ka ek option hai bas. Ab Naa dilo me sacche jazbat bache or naa hi aankho me sacche aansu. Mohabbat, ishq, pyar, koi samjh paaye toh theek hai varna jaanu,shona,baby se hi samjhate rahiyega.
Q. How did you start writing?
A. Bachpan me diary likha karti thi.11th class se poems likhna shuru kiya tha. Pehli poem "bachpan" pe hi likhi thi. Hari om pawar ko sunti thi toh bahut accha lgta tha..mann karta tha ki mai bhi kuch likhu. Fir dheere dheere ek do shabdo ko jodkar likhna shuru kiya..Apni "maa" matlab daadi maa ko sunaati thi aur vo hamesha tareef karti thi. Fir kuch dosto ko sunaati thi. Sab tareef karte the toh Sunkar khush ho jaati thi. Bas fir yu hi likhne ka daur shuru ho gya. Kayi baar jab upset hoti thi toh ek poem likhti thi..fir usi poem kk baar baar padh kar motivate hoti thi. Apni dadi maa ko pyar karti hu, toh ab unpar hi likhti hu almost.
Q. What’s the most fulfilling thing about writing? How seriously do you take your writing?
A. Likhkar thoda relax feel karti hu. Jo bhi mann me chal raha hota hai ek kagaz par likh kar khud ko azaad kar deti hu. Par Kabhi Kabhi kuch khyal aise hote hai..maano likhne ke baad or lipat jaate hai aapse, shyad ye vo khyal hai jo jaane ka naam nahi lete. Seriously toh nahi leti jyada, kyunki waqt nahi milta ki regular likh saku, college jana hota hai. Abhi tak book publish karwaane ka koi irada nahi. Par kuch logo ne suggest kiya hai ki " continuity me likha karo" bahut jaldi ispar kaam karungi.
