To creat literature is not my interest but my compulsion. When time disturbs my peace, only then does my pen move. I am a woman who seeks accepts and worships geniuses. The duty of a litrature is not to creat a hero. The work of a litrature is to pickup and present heroes. I take myself to be honest writer.My honesty might have made me anarchical and disloyal at times. I am not the type of personand I do not have the habit of getting confused when one calls a black object white. This is not my sense of pride. In the form of litrature, I feel myself so honest that at least I know the limits of my capabilities and the importance of my social responsibilities. ” Parijat had said. She said “
