Ganderbal : Tanveera Jan, an eighteen-year-old girl from the Fatehpora area of central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district, has published her first poetry book ‘Tasawar-E-Zindagi’. The book, which comprises 40 poems, focuses on the menace of dowry prevalent in Indian society.
Tanveera, studying in the 12th class at Government Girls Higher Secondary School Ganderbal, discovered her passion for writing at a very young age.
“I started writing poems in 2019, and have penned around 40 poems so far,” she told
“I started penning my thoughts and feelings in the form of poetry when I was in 8th standard. With time, I honed my writing skills and finally published my first book in 2022,” she said.
‘Tasawar-E-Zindagi’ is on dowry and revolves around different aspects of life such as kindness, love, hate, struggles, destiny, emotions, pain, and more, Tanveera said.
“I have always been encouraged by my parents, relatives, and friends. My teachers have been a great support to me,” the young girl said. “My family has been very supportive of my dreams and aspirations. They encouraged me to pursue my passion for writing and provided me with all necessary resources.”
Talking about her future plans, Tanveera said she wants to become an author and “spread happiness through my writings”.
In her message to the youth of Kashmir, especially girls, Tanveera urged them to tap into their talent and set their goals high. “Giving up is not an option; one must work hard to achieve targets,” she said.
