Interviewer: Please tell me about poetry? What is your perception about poetry?
Neelesh Chojjar: Poetry is a path, a way to convey your feelings, your emotions to the world out there through a bond of beautiful words displayed on a piece of paper. Poetry for me is not just a page with words, it is not just a collection of beautiful words. It is just a way to convey the truth to the reality, through the bond of these words.
Interviewer: Who is the most supportive person in your life when it comes to your writing?
Neelesh Chojjar: Each and every person in my life has been supportive when it comes to my writing, from my family, relatives, to my loved one and my friends, all have supported me since the biggening. But it is my mother who has been the most supportive when it comes to writing and not only writing but in every sphere of my life. She is like, “keep writing, don’t stop it” but at the same time she is like, “don’t just keep writing, concentrate on your studies also!”
Interviewer: How did you go about the writing process? Are you a spontaneous writer or a disciplined one?
Neelesh Chojjar: So, I used to go on the terrace or just on a walk in the park and at that time I would like to remember my loved one and would start expressing her beauty in my way like what I felt, so, the “Mohhabat” part of the book was completed like this and the “Zindagi” part was completed by the stories of life from my father, my mother, my sisters and in general like what I felt about life. And about being a spontaneous writer or a disciplined one. You can say I am both like when the deadline of completing the book is not close, I am a disciplined writer but when the deadline is close, I am a spontaneous one.
Interviewer: Humjoli is a collection of Hindi poems. Please let the readers know what inspired the idea for this book?
