‘I typically don’t seek out news or reviews about my work, poetry, or acting’: Arunoday Singh | Books and Literature News,The Indian Express

"My aim for the book was to have it exist. That done, everything else I consider consequential and not really my business," the actor-turned-author, whose collection of poetry recently released, said

Arunoday Singh’s Instagram bio describes him as an ‘Actor. Poet. Artist. Seeker’. But he, recently, added another feather in his cap — of being an author following the release of his first volume of poetry titled Unsung. Published by Penguin Random House India, the collection, according to the press note, “comprises some of his most beloved poems alongside new ones, where he delves deep within the self and probes questions of loss, longing, and healing – all aspects of the human experience.”

Over the years, the Aisha actor has shared his musings, which explore numerous themes like love, loss, longing, and healing, on Instagram. In the book, which he calls the “psycho-paleontological record of the last, particularly tumultuous period of my life”, he writes that the poems are samples of “what I felt, what broke, what burnt, what managed to survive through enough”. He further admits that it took him years of “crippling insecurity to stop trying to write like any of the people I admire; to find my own voice”, but also shares how he now writes like a “bird flies”.

In an exclusive email interaction with indianexpress.com, Arunoday Singh tells us about his soulful writing, the process, the journey, and the final destination, too. In-between, he also shares how words may not come to him effortlessly, “but it does feel awfully natural.” Edited excerpts below:
