Rakhi Tewathia, a marketing specialist has just stepped in the world of writing with an ambition to help people with their relationships. She has done her PHD in Management and also holds a degree of MBA in Management. She works in the domain of Marketing and has touched many lives by now.
She believes that realisation of existence of issues in relationships is not just the first step, but it automatically facilitates the resolving process. “WE LIVED TO LOVE IS TO LIVED” is an attempt to make people realize the needles in their own relationships and how they can get rid of them and smoothen out their lives. With this novel, the author takes you on a journey and gives you glimpses of life of people where you find yourself and realize what has been wrong all this while.
In an exclusive interaction with The Policy Times, she talks about how a marketing specialist stepped into the world of writing and imagination.
- Being a marketing specialist, you stepped in the writing world. Why?
Answer: Although, I am only 26, a relatively young age in the world of writing. Outside of my relationship with my mother, writing had been the longest most reliable relationship of my life. It has been with me since I could hold a pencil.
Marketing specialist because I minored in marketing in college! Writing because I’m a mess of unfinished thoughts and writing is one field that requires more attention to the words and thoughts that any other. I believe I am too good in putting my thoughts in words. I imagine writing being with me until I die.
- Tell me what triggered you for writing, especially a love story.
Answer: Writing is my passion before I wrote a novel, I tried myself in writing blogs and while writing blogs I had a whole collection of stories. After all what a girl doesn’t like love stories! Why a love story because it takes me out of my head into a dream land! And I myself is very romantic person. The complexity of relationship makes love stories the perfect material for storytelling.
- Millions of love story books are available in the market, so how will your love story survive in this competitive world.
Answer: All love stories are different so there is no question of survival. I have written the book to express something, not to come in any kind of competition.
- How you define love?
Answer: Love is a feeling that completely changes you. It brings out the best from yourself, it makes you a better person. It is a feeling that cannot be expressed by words but can only be felt. Love is greatest emotion of all, love is more easily experienced than defined. You don’t fall in love you discover it then it’s built. Love is about the day to day not the magical weekend.
- What makes one happier in a relationship, sharing or sacrificing?
Answer: Balancing! It’s never about sharing or sacrificing, it’s always about balancing between us. Still if I have to choose one it will be sharing as it would make one happier. With sharing comes happiness and sacrificing means giving others more priority than oneself and that doesn’t give happiness.
- Any message that you want to convey for newcomers?
Answer: Friedrich Schiller thought it was a small task to write for one audience, but thought it better to write for all audiences, to write things that would empower and inspire everyone.
Writing is magic, quite literally. You create something out of nothing. Something you write today can be found and read in a thousand years and it can still be related to readers. This is magic. The best way to do justice to writing is to love it. Once you start enjoying the process of writing, words will come naturally to you and you’ll look forward to writing every day.
