My First Ever Interview!

Posted on: December 12, 2008

I was surprised when I was approached for an interview by The Pakistani Spectator. I mean, I am a nobody in this big, bad blogsphere!! But then I was happy too! This meant that I was getting recognised. And it felt really good.

Following is the excerpt of  “The” interview.

Interview with Blogger Sakhi

Do you feel that you continue to grow in your writing the longer you write? Why is that important to you?

I have done my […]a sense of achievement. .

What do you do in order to keep up your communication with other bloggers?

Blogging is the best medium to communicate on different topics that concern the like-minded people. I make sure to keep in touch with my fellow bloggers through feeds. And I don’t, ever, forget to reply to […]

Do you think that these new technologies are effective in making people more responsive?

Can’t say about people being responsive, but yes, it has definitely made people more politically aware.

You can find the whole interview here.

Congratulations for the interview….and this interview is amazing…

i got the invite too…had fun doing it… 😀

Sakhi: Thanks Alice… i will definitely read yours! 🙂

And hey, welcome to my blog! 🙂


@Sakhi: Xylene meant the newsletter Pak Spectator by PS.

@Nita: PS is doing it for its own benefit. Blogging works in India, and they are upcoming online journal. They also want to exchange links with us blogger. I have given the intervoew but wary of exchanging any kind of links.

The email for request is standard and they post your answer as is withoutmaking any effort to correct mistakes that crop up if you copy from a Word document, smileys or links.

But take it as fun, ots fine and doable. 🙂

Sakhi: Thanks 🙂


Congratulations! And who says you are nobody is this blogging world!

You are somebody, somebody for readers like us! 😛

Great going…keep up the good work! 😀

Sakhi: Aww…thanks 🙂


wah wah! 😛
congratulations …..i read yours and poonam’s interview…….next step to become renowned writer of short stories 😆

Sakhi: I wish I CAN become “renowed” writer as you mention someday!! 🙂 🙂


just look at you ….. your stories are really worth publishing i told you before also 😆


hey… read your whole interview… It was a good one 🙂


@ Arpit

Thanks man, you made my day and month and also the entire year!! 😆

@ Remya

I am glad you liked it! 🙂



U r becoming World Famous 🙂


Sakhi, you said,

“Pakistan, a country of cultures and traditions strikingly similar to India and yet so different! ”

Do you mean to say that Pakistani culture is similar to that of North India but not states like Tamil Nadu and Assam. Coz otherwise I cant make sense of this !


@ Vikram

No, when i said they are strickingly different i wanted to say that though we came from the same womb, the kids have grown differently.

India being more tolerant and non-secular, where as the neighbour has turned to be throne in the leg for so many nations around the world.

Yes, i admit i was subtle in passing on the message! I hope you can pardon me for that! 🙂


Congrats!! 🙂
you’ve got a huge following 🙂
