July 13: Aditya Tikku, is a well-known writer, socialist, feminist, and child counselor. He is a reputable editor at the National Magazine Surbhi Saloni for the past 11 years. His book, “Antardvand” has bagged him several awards. The Mumbai resident is also a social worker and has won several awards for it in the past 19 years. He is tirelessly working with the Aradhana Sadhana foundation to impart spiritual rites among children from a tender age. He strongly believes in Goddess Saraswati and never forgets to take her divine blessings through his artistic journey.
Here is what the incredible and multi-talented author had to share on his mindful journey through the socialism and feminism cosmos:
How does it feel to be a writer and editor at Surbhi Saloni national magazine?
I feel blessed, besides being a backbencher, I was not that confident in my abilities. My family always had confidence in me that I am not only intelligent but better than what I think of myself. That syrup of confidence worked and I have been working as a writer for more than 26 years and as an editor for more than 11 years. I really enjoy reading and writing. Till the moment I have everyone’s support, I will try to give the right picture of our society from throwing light on the declining character of people, writing on issues faced by children and the elderly, especially women to describing the homesickness felt by migrant Indians, there is so much I have strongly felt and depicted through my writings. It is always a refreshing and productive experience for me.
What is your Kalamkar award-winning book, Antardvand talk about?
When it comes to my writings, I ensure they depict societal issues most thoughtfully. With my book Antardvand, I have done just that. From the gap between Bharat and India to depicting the difference between a true family home and a man-made house, as well as the day-to-day difficulties to earn bread, I have left no page unturned. I have also taken the long route by writing about the declining level of character and righteous values among Indians today. These vividly depicted conflicts make the essence of my book. I hope the book takes the youth by surprise and gives experienced readers something to ponder upon.
Who has had a major influence on your writing skills?
I have been fond of writing ever since. I first developed my passion for writing in grade 7. Since then, I have developed an interest in various genres but contemporary writings have always been my favourite. I am always inspired by my father’s (Shri S.N.Tikku) thoughtful ideas that gave me inspiration for writing while my maternal uncle (Shri K.N.Tikku) greatly influenced my writing style.
How do you feel being a Kashmiri pandit?
Same as you and what every other Indian feel about their community. I am proud of being an Indian.
What is the best way to encourage today’s children to become better citizens for tomorrow?
Today’s children are more well-equipped and educated than they could have ever been before. They read and write but also understand the meaning of it. The best way of encouraging them to become better citizens is by providing them the right teachings and guidance and most importantly family support. All family members have to understand that a child is also human you shouldn’t insult them. If your child is not safe and confident to speak at home then parents need to shift their focus. Working on their ignorance and removing all the confusion they face is the best way to lead them on the right path. Imparting spiritual rites education and conducting seminars on child development is also my focus.
What inspired you to become a pioneer Indian socialist and feminist?
I completely disagree, I am not a pioneer; even I am not at all doing anything for women and personally, I think no one can do till our families start respecting and educating girls. They should get their rights, mental development, and career. Still, most families educate girls only for Shaadi. Marriage is an important thing in life but it can’t be the only goal of life. Just think once about how we treat women and children. Then we will know the pain they have to go through to get the right opportunities amidst the growing neglect and inequality.
