Why I Write
“I am motivated to explore the nature and existence of women in the chaotic present times and likely future as well as the challenges they face,” writes author Richa Gupta.
Hunted by the Sky brought magic and fantasy back into my life. All I had to do was embrace the culture I was born into.
Why I write is a mystery to me but I just know I need to write. As long as my readers keep reading me and keep traveling with me and my stories, I know I will keep writing and not think to much about it.
I write because I need to express this. This restlessness, hunger, ambition, joy, grief, sustenance, existential angst I’m feeling.
My books reflect only what I have seen in women. They are resilient, loving, stern, playful, and strong beyond measure
I write for the thrill of surprising myself with the twists and turns that my mind can make as I immersed myself in the act of writing.
I believe that lines of good and bad are blurred, and often we look at the world through the coloured lens of our personal experiences.

Life comes full circle, as they say. And the scrawl in the margins of my life slowly nudged its way into the centre of the page. Hoping, hoping that someone would read it and let it stay a while.

I’ve often realized that I’m a free spirit when I write. It gives me a unique identity and a distinct sense of accomplishment because I write relatively better than I speak.
