As a writer and a published author of a children’s book, “Toonee the turtle and his friends”, I have been often asked what is my genre of writing? And, every time I have answered this question, that I write across genres other than children’s book, I have been a bit disappointed with the reaction that follows next. The reason being every writer and an author has a niche and excels in it. But, may be that is not the case with me because I love writing across genres. I feel writing in various genres that resonate with you, help you become a good writer eventually.
Conventionally it is difficult for people to digest this fact. It is often misunderstood as some fast track, substandard content creation, but that is surely not the case here.
May be I am just a multipotentialite driven by creativity whose expression cannot be confined to a particular genre of writing.
(Hey, have you heard about multipotentialites? Well, if not, then you must surely listen to this Ted Talk by Emilie Wapnick, a writer, career coach, blogger and a community leader. I completely resonate with what she has to say.)
Over the years I have explored writing across genres and here are some reviews about my writing skills.
Review : Genre : Inspirational
“Dhara and I have been friends for more than 2 decades now. A talented girl she has been since school days be it academics or curriculums. When she started writing some 9-10 yrs ago I’ve always loved her writing style hence I asked her to write for the 26/11 Memorial and the upcoming museum brochure. Usually people don’t read brochure content but I have received a lot of good reviews saying the words touched their heart.While working with her I found her very professional and thorough with her approach. Within 3 days of visiting the museum and briefing she finished writing a 24 page brochure and brought out the story so beautifully. Thank you, Dhara”

” I read the article and I must say that you are brilliant in your expression. Such depth, a wonderful choice of words, I love it. It has a Paulo Coelho resonance to it 🙂 🙂
I wish you more power O Dear One. Now write more:)

Review : Genre: Spirituality
“Writing comes naturally to Dhara. And when I write this, I literally mean it. she connects to the source beyond and then what flows through her on paper is sheer divine light in form of words and sentences. Her articulation and writing is so beyond amazing that the matter feels rich and full of wisdom. she has helped me with writing notes for my workshops, classes, journals and much more.
When it comes to workshops and notes, where the language needed is more simplified than articulated, she sees to it that it is done that way. In simple words, let her know what you require and what’s on your mind with respect to the final product and she will deliver it appropriately. A dear friend, a sincere person, wonderful at heart, sharp mind and professional when it comes to work… a lovely combination.”

Review: Genre: Self- help, non- fiction writing
” I have known Dhara Purohit for over 5 years and we have been associated both personally and professionally. She has always been a resource to my work and to me. I have derived a lot of positive energy and inspiration from my every interaction with her. If I am not able to connect with her, I have taken aid from her blog and articles, that emit the same energy as when you have the chance to speak to her. I look forward to reading more of her insight on breaking through negativity, giving gratitude and maintaining a peaceful mind in her books to come. All the best Dhara, I will always be a fan.”

Review : Genre : Architecture
” I met Architect Dhara Purohit through a common friend and we worked together on an architectural project. She has a charismatic personality and I was impressed by the clarity of thought she carries. She has an extra-ordinary visualisation and a great writing style. She is possessive about her work, and makes no compromises at all. This is what makes her special. I really enjoyed working with her. Wishing her the best on her journey ahead and looking forward to work with her again.”

Review : Genre : Intentional Parenting and Self-help
“Dhara is an absolute pleasure to work with. She has the flare for simple yet effective writing. She understands or should I say reads my mind when I give her a brief for a blog post/article or concept note. For a content company like Rollercoaster Edutainment, finding Dhara has been like finding the most perfect talent, in a place where good content writers are rare. She is extremely dependable, her work is well-researched and her timely deliveries make her the most reliable creative asset for the content industry. Her charming personality is a plus to have her around and brighten the room. Thanks for being an integral part of our team at Rollercoaster Edutainment. THANKS!.”
