In conversation Saheera Thangal, who has bagged the first Emerging Writer Award, tells Suneetha B that her literary flights are powered by her passion for writing.

“Her poetry is ‘a surprise that has opened a door and stepped out.’ Its intensity makes me laugh and cry at the same time.” The late Kamala Suraiyya wrote this blurb for a debut poetry collection titled Njanenna Ottavara (Me, the Single Line) by Saheera Thangal in 2007.
