I'm a born poet: 'Baahubali' writer

MUMBAI: Baahubali writer Manoj Muntashir describes himself as a born poet, but says coming out with a book was a scary experience.

"I am a born poet. So the idea of getting the collection published was always on the cards. But it was scary to have a book published and distribute the signed copies as a gift," Muntashir told IANS. 

He has come out with his new book Meri Fitrat Hai Mastana.

He further said, "We don't value anything we don't pay for. I wanted to wait until there is enough hunger for my writing. I have dedicated followers on social media thanks to my songs, many of which are love anthems for this generation. My non-film shayaris are very popular in youth as I keep performing them in colleges and lit-fests.”

"Since the last two years, every day I have witnessed a steep demand of all my poetry compiled in one book. When I became confident of the fact, that I have enough readership ready to buy my book, I decided to go for it," he told.

Looking back at the journey of creating the book, he said, "It was like travelling through the vast stretches of joy, ecstasy, heartbreak, pain, surrender and ultimately accomplishment. I believe in love like a child believes in magic. The best thing that we will ever experience as human beings is to love and be loved back. Even love lost is a delight; at least it converted a pumping set under your chest to a beating heart. My book is a saga of romance and separation. It celebrates both."
