Meghana Pawar’s Ria’s Diary has already become popular among the youth


1.How did you conceive the whole idea about ‘Ria’s diary’? 

My book Ria’s Diary is inspired by a real story of a friend. She wanted to tell her story and I became the medium. Her life truly has been a rollercoaster ride and I thought it will be inspiring for the readers – young and old alike!

2. Personally, which has been the most favourite portion from Ria’s Diary? 

Well, the ending part, I guess when she finally takes charge of her life and does everything she always wanted to do! Also, the school portions are fun too!

3. As a writer do you think that Indian readers are gradually getting inclined towards the urban set up of content/stories or there is no such divide?                                                                                                                                   

I think it all depends upon the story and how well it is being told. The Indian readers are smart and I love the fact that books and literary pieces of all kinds are getting the love and attention that they deserve, thanks to the social media world and young enthusiasts.

  1. How do you identify a modern-day Ria? Can she be any teenager or she is an alter ego of a bubbly chirpy girl of a metro city, studying in college? 

Yes, the character ‘Ria’ is supremely relatable. That is what I have been getting in almost all my responses from the readers.

  1. While writing ‘Ria’s Diary’ which character influenced you most? Is Ria a subtle version of you? 

Nope, not at all. I get this a lot. Ria is nothing like me, although a few aspects are common and relatable. But yes, since I wrote it, I imagined certain parts and some aspects of my personality may have come through without my knowing. But, her life story is completely different and I was influenced by it the most.

  1. What is your next plan? As a writer, do you love fiction or non-fiction?

Honestly, I am into non-fiction more, however, I read a lot of fiction too. Next plan…well Ria’s Diary was completely unplanned and my first story idea is still pending, so, I may choose to take that up! Let’s see. I keep writing on my blog though!

  1. Do you think the reading and writing fraternities of India have witnessed a massive sea change in the last few decades? How do you want to identify yourself in such a scenario?

Yes, there have been massive changes. And I guess, the changes have been for good. Earlier it was supremely difficult for a new writer to break through but thanks to the ease of self-publishing models and social media, everyone gets the opportunity which is great! Of course, the clutter has also increased due to this but I believe everyone gets their value and place sooner or later. One needs to be consistent and be willing to put that effort.

I am happy to have my set of audience and celebrate good stories along with my readers. With Ria’s Diary, I have taken the first step into this big world and it indeed feels surreal to be addressed as an author now. I just want to keep writing good content pieces and books that make readers happy!
