Emptying My Mind: Why I Write what I Write

‘If I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad.’ Byron

All writers, regardless of whether they are professionals or hobby writers like myself are asked at some point of time why do they write, and why do they write what they write.

In answer to this I would say that “Writers write for many reasons, for money, for fame, because they like doing it better than other things, but all writers write to learn something about themselves (though they are not always conscious of doing this).

The Rose and the Thorn 2019 https://www.book2look.com/book/cNyQZS41uT

The Rose and the Thorn has been a riveting read… We are lucky to have a writer and thinker of Dr Ganguly’s calibre in Brisbane, one who is equally at ease in India as she is in Australia.  Her breadth of vision, her understanding of what is good and desirable and of what is not so desirable in both cultures, her social conscience and her call to action to each and every one is apparent through the wonderful characters she has portrayed and brought to life in the book.  Mrs Archana Singh, Honorary Consul of India

In My Father’s House 2015

Launch of In My Father’s House 2015

In this deceptively compact hardback volume there is a lot to read and think about.  ‘In My Father’s House’ is more than a treasury of family memories, Indrani’s words entertained and enlightened me.  She is in tune with diverse levels of society and human nature as well as comfortable within herself and her writing.
