Captivating Our Heart’s Through His Stories: Swaraj Singh



Swaraj Singh

According to an old saying, “Those who tell the stories rule the world”. They captivate people’s attention and embed ideas into our minds through their stories. Swaraj Singh is one such incredible storyteller. 

Born and raised in a small town of Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, Swaraj moved to Bangalore for his higher studies. He completed his MBA in marketing. But, to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming an actor, he did his diploma in acting. With over six years’ extensive experience in theatre, he learnt the subtle nuances of performing arts. However, his tryst with story-writing began, when Mehak Mirza Prabhu saw his performance and insisted him to write. “Bhookh” was his very first story which was widely appreciated and gave him an overnight recognition.

Inspired by actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Manoj Bajpayee and Shahrukh Khan, he has given some award-winning performances in short films like Pyada, Conversation Killer and The trust. He also gained appreciation for his solo theatrical play ‘Redfrock’, where he enacted 17 different characters.

While recalling his story, he states that, “Life changed completely after I left my job in Bangalore and came to pursue my dreams in Mumbai. I lost my dad at the start of my career which was the turning point. I was not earning then and being the only child was very challenging as the financial pressure mounted enormously. I am very lucky to have a supportive family. My mother is my biggest strength, as she has always stood beside, while my sister Mehak is my guiding light.” 

As a true artist, he is also mentoring budding writers through his initiative named IS-KOOL. In this an online-offline school he trains young writers and storytellers. Conclusively, in his message to all those young dreamers, he states that “Just listen to your heart and chase your dreams. Education is must so it’s always advisable to complete the degree before choosing unconventional careers. Honestly talking to the parents about your dreams is also very essential, because they are the backbone of your foundation. The road to success is never a smooth one, so be prepared for the challenges and hardship and always remember that “NOTHING” in life comes easy. The great thing comes only with great sacrifices.”

Thank You, Bhau: A Bitter Sweet Relationship With Grandparents

‘Thank you, Bhau” by Mithila Palkar is a beautiful piece which describes the bitter sweet relationship with her grandfather.



Mithila Palkar

We share a very different kind of a relationship with our grandparents. They shower us with loads of love and care but at the same time, there are disagreements on matters due to the wide generation gap. However, they leave an indelible mark on our lives, a sort of an impression which cannot be substituted by any other relationship.

‘Thank you, Bhau” by Mithila Palkar is a beautiful piece which describes her relationship with her grandfather. She draws a sketch of her Marathi background and sets up the mood for her narration. In a lively manner, she explains the bitter sweet relationship she had with her grandfather, referred to as “Bhau” in Marathi. He cared for her ceaselessly, waiting for her near the door till she comes back and at the same time, took some stern measures like setting up a curfew which could not be breached. He influenced many of her major life decisions but showed some resentment and scepticism about her decision to pursue performing arts. A great tussle took place between the two but finally he agreed to her decision with hesitation.

Today, he proudly shows Mithila’s pictures and magazine covers and gigs to their relatives and appreciates her work deeply. She expresses her gratefulness to her Bhau for bringing out the best in her.

Anxiously Yours: Rohan Joshi’s Real Take On Anxiety

Rohan Joshi through his performance “Anxiously Yours” reminds us that deviating from the constant pursuit of happiness is not an abnormality.



Anxiously Yours

There can be several causes which can lead one to be anxious or depressed- words we often get to hear in the 21st century. Almost everyone is aware of these words but people hardly know what these words stand for and the impact it produces in the life of the person suffering from it. Attempting to explain it, Rohan Joshi talks about the fight with anxiety and sheds some light on the lives of those suffering from it.

In his piece “Anxiously Yours”, Rohan describes, using an elaborate example, what a person experiencing anxiety actually goes through. He talks about how those who don’t know what it is or haven’t experienced it try to spread “positivity” through their small meanings quotes on various social media platforms like Instagram. He bares reality and openly addresses all those who find themselves in this position and empathises with them by implying that life isn’t a bed of roses, it can be hard and ugly, it doesn’t necessarily have to be pretty and happy all the time. He talks about how frustrating false positivity can be and delves deeper into the experiences of anxiety. He finally talks about accepting life, no matter how hard it gets because there will eventually be one moment on one particular day when you’ll thank yourself for keeping up with it.

Giving anxiety a realistic and holistic view, he urges his listeners to not lose hope, to live through dark days in the hope of better days, for good and bad go in hand in hand. He imparts hope and says that “you might think you are weak, but you are someone else’s source of strength, whether you know it or not.” Life’s sufferings are inevitable and it will be a whole lot better if we come to terms with that and, in Rohan’s words, “stay”.
